Two years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. My urologist recommend Dr Barker for treatment. I have been very pleased with Dr Barker and the rest of the staff at Texas Oncology. From the Receptionist to the Nurses and Radiation Therapist. Everyone has made for an great experience. I had 44 treatments if radiation therapy, that's every weekday for 9 weeks. It's inpatient so everyday you must go , but it was a time I looked forward to. They make it a positive experience. Now my PSA is 0.

My family & I cannot say enough about Dr. Barker. He is definitely the best and most informative doctor we have dealt with. He spent well over 2 hours explained my options, my condition, his thoughts on the best care. I will say I did got the best care and I made the best decision based on his recommendations. We will never be able to thank Dr. Barker enough for all of his care and wisdom. Because of his insight on my cancer and his treatment recommendation, I AM NOW CANCER FREE. THE BEST
