Dr. Barke performed cataract surgery on my eyes in 2016. After the surgery I had and still have 2020 vision and if my husband ever needs cataract surgery we will return to Arlington and Dr. Barke for the surgery. He is a great eye surgeon.

Dr. Barke is the professional you want operating on your eyes if it comes down to surgery. He is highly respected by his colleagues and his staff. When I have my left eye cataract surgery, Dr. Barke will be my surgeon.

All my dealings with Dr. Barke have been very good. He treats you with "respect" and does not try to tell you that you are not seeing what you say you are like some other individuals I have seen other places. I and my Husband are very pleased with Dr. Barke.

I believe that the front desk is the window to your experience behind those doors leading to the operative area. The young lady at your service desk could be a little bit more friendly and welcoming. Immediately when The time Presented itself to transition to the operative Area James smile was genuine, friendly, and he made you feel safe. Anesthesiologist was a little cold/ to the point.Howevet the assistant to Dr. Barke team members smile made up for any uneasiness in that I may have felt. I believe Dr. Borke did a great job and he made me feel very safe. So all the promotion on Christian radio that I’ve heard over the years about Key- Whitman is everything & More. Thank you and I’m excited about having the left eye done.

Was very disappointed with the unprofessional manner of the office visit with Dr. Barke. I had been to the office the previous year and was examined by Dr Faber....a total different visit! On the visit with Dr. Faber, I left the office knowing what was needed and when. If I use Key Whitman for my surgery, it will not be with Dr Barke!!!
