Dr Barger is the most helpful physician I've ever had; and given over 20 years of health problems, that's saying a lot! He is extremely intelligent and thoughtful in making diagnoses. He takes time to listen to the patient, and also to explain treatment options. He has a great sense of humor, which makes it easier to cope with health problems. I always leave my appointments feeling more optimistic than I had before the appointment. He has really helped me reclaim as much mobility as possible.

No other doctor diagnosed my rare autoimmune problems right until three years ago when I met Dr. Barger. He then started me on a medication protocol to bring my diseases under control for the first time since 1979! He is an amazing doctor. He spends as much time per visit as needed, so sometimes there are long waits in the reception area. All of his patients soon learn why and accommodate. His staff are the best!
