Dr. Barber is the most knowledgeable Doctor I have ever been to! He spends all the time you need and explains every detail! He is a great surgeon and a fine Christian Doctor that prays with his patients! My knee replace has been wonderful and I should have had the surgeon sooner! I would not let anyone else do surgery on me!!

Have seen the good doctor many times over past 2-3 years..this last visit was good BUT really wanted him to be more aggressive in handing my complaint/issues...he is usually conservative which is good but this time needed another level..but will be seeing him again, soon and take it from there

A lot of waiting. Arrived at 1:20 PM for 1:45 appt. (Instructions were to arrive 15 minutes early.) Note pad check in OK at first, then began repeating questions. Finally had to ask for help to get out of program to complete check in. Staff very polite and helpful. I had brought xrays; they had to be redone. Visit with Dr. Barber great. All questions answered and surgery scheduled. Finally completed visit about 4:30 PM. Other than the waiting, I have no complaints.

He is funny, has an easy "bedside" manner, is very patient when you ask a lot of questions and you don't feel rushed. He will take the time to explain your problem to you.

Dr. Barber performed a total hip replacement on me a week ago and did a great job. Not only was I ver impressed with his surgical skills but he was the most humble doctor I have ever met. He never rushed me or my wife with answering all of the normal questions one would have before having a surgery like this. He actually prayed for me and himself that God would guide his hand in surgery. After the surgery he checked on me every morning thereafter and sat on the bed and talked to me. Great man!
Calvin Brown, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We think Dr. Barber is pretty amazing too. He has his own way of being not only a great doctor, but a special spiritual man. We are so glad you had such a fantastic outcome.

Conformis total knee replacement went without a hitch. Dr. Barber made me feel completely comfortable before and after the surgery. AOC is a terrific group of doctors and nurses.
