Marysville, WA |
The only answers I got we're I don't know.. With visual lump and swelling said he won't do any testing..? Getting second opinion.. Was referred by another Dr who clearly told me something was wrong. Very dissapointed with this Dr.

I came to Dr. Barker with a hurt foot. He was very patient and helpful, giving me several exercises that would help me get back to living the active lifestyle I live. I recovered a short time later thanks to his advice!
