Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Was skeptical at first because he is (looks?) young. Very kind and easy to talk with. Felt like he really wanted to know me and understand my pain. I was put on his schedule by mistake and have decided to continue to see him.

Run the other way!!! This man misdiagnosed a very serious life threatening illness. Don’t be fooled by his education. He doesn’t listen and he doesn’t read imaging reports. I would never go back to this doctor.

I had a very good experience with the Dr and the office. I had to change Dr due to a move. When I called, they got me in the next day. Dr Barker seemed interested in helping me more than my last doc. He was willing to listen to me and believe what I was saying.

I have never had less confidence in a dr. He kept interrupting me & every time I asked about my meds he left to get an answer. He said I was breaking the law because I followed the instructions of the former dr AND I'm not allowed to take my meds from another dr for a condition he is't certified to treat. I said I was tired of being harassed by this office and he said he wasn't and started all over again! If this practice is in trouble for something don't take it out on the honest patients.
