I was referred to Dr. Barker in mid-2016 by another doctor in his field who was a trusted professional recommendation. I am so glad to have found Dr. Barker's VA Surgical Practice and feel fortunate to have been a patient of his, which was a life-saving medical intervention for me. I found Dr. Barker to be thoughtful & thorough, as well as literally 'cool, calm + collected' in his patient interactions with me. I had total confidence in his competence and surgical experience from the start.

Dr. Barker and his staff did an excellent job with the diagnosis, surgery, and recovery of my recent gall bladder attack. I was up on my feet and going again very quickly, with no residual problems. Dr. Barker was very knowledgeable, compassionate, and took his time to answer all my questions. I was very pleased and would recommend them to anyone in need of GI surgery..
