My arthritis doctor recommended I see Dr. Barber. I have polymyalesia rhumatica and was having a hard time walking, sometimes couldn't walk at all. Dr. Barber and has helped me tremendously. The orthodics he made for me have made a huge difference in ankles, hips and legs. I highly recommend you try Dr. Barber. You won't be disappointed.

Ann Wagner – Sep 26, 2021
Dr. Barber custom built me a set of orthotics, which have added a huge boost of comfort and alignment to my stride. I am a golfer who typically walks, and the orthotics have significantly reduced the pain in my lower back and sciatica. Dr. Barber was very helpful and patient in explaining the process, understood the technology well, and produced an excellent result. Couldn't recommend him enough!

I cannot believe how rude and arrogant this doctor was to my parents, specifically my dad. He barely listened to what they were saying. Was more interested in selling inserts and braces and pushing the steroid injection. He kept boasting about how he is so good, and how he has treated such and such diagnosis, and that if he wants to get better he has to listen to him. He was very pushy and opinionated. Definitely don't recommend

Visited Dr. Barber for severe left foot pain. He listened to my issues, asked pointed and insightful questions to determine the root cause and explained the various treatment options available, including why he recommended one over another. When I emailed Dr. Barber on a Friday afternoon to report a painful setback, Dr. Barber got me in the office the following Tuesday morning, addressed my issue and had me out the door in 30 minutes...pain free! Dr. Barber is knowledgeable and thorough, instills confidence and has a great bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr. Barber for any foot-related issues.

My kids (11 and 13) have had recurring foot and ankle problems that were not being solved by more slap-dash orthopedics or general medicine solutions. Dr. Barber took so much time and care in using old school wisdom and new technologies to help us come up with permanent solutions for each of them.

Several positives from my visit. First, before my appointment, the office emailed forms to complete early, streamlining check-in. Second, staff (front desk, medical assistants) were helpful and friendly. (Dr. Barber practically has a view of the entire office at any given time and knows what's happening). Third, Dr. Barber ran on time! Finally, Dr. Barber was highly transparent with costs, collaborative, and clearly articulated his findings and recommendations.

Dr. Barber treated my 15 year old son this past Monday. The office visit was a good experience. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The office itself was easy to get to. The doctor was thorough and had a wonderful demeanor and my son felt very comfortable with him. I highly recommend Dr . Barber.

Dr. Barber is great! He listened carefully to what I had to say, gave me excellent advice to correct the problem and I am now pain-free! I didn't think that was possible. Dr. Barber genuinely cares about his patients - he wants us to understand what he is doing and why. And, he gets results! Now, isn't that just what you want in a doctor?

Elizabeth in Elkridge, MD – Jul 19, 2017
Wonderful office, great staff, amazing doctor! I started 8 years ago for foot pain which made it virtually impossible for me to walk. Dr Barber had me comfortably walking in 2 visits. New problems surfaced last year. My new insurance required a different provider for 3 mos before approving my request for Dr Barber. He truly cares about his patients staying up on the latest technology and helped me using a noninvasive, pain free laser treatment as an alternative treatment for my heel pain.

Dr. Barber's office was clean and comfortable and he had all the services and products I needed in one location. And Dr. Barber himself was very thorough, consultative and knowledgeable. My favorite part of the experience was that my appointment time was honored to the minute...no waiting! I don't experience that with all my doctors.

Steve in Rockville, MD – May 12, 2016
First of all, Dr. Barber fixed a 5 year battle with Planters Fasciatis & cured my toenail issues with his state of the art laser machines. He has an awesome bedside manner and is extremely knowledgeable in his field. He gave me complete confidence the very first time I met him that my issues would be solved if I followed his protocols and they were. I don't say this about many doctors, but if you have any sort of feet issues, you could not be in better hands!
