My GP referred me to Orthopedic ONE after my left knee had been quite sore for several weeks. I chose Dr. William Barker, based on several testimonials that I found. He found a torn meniscus and suggested arthroscopic surgery. I had this surgery about 16 years ago and remembered laying on the couch for a week with a swollen, tender knee. The surgery went extremely well and I was walking without crutches that evening. The next day I removed the bandages from my leg & walked without any aids. After 2 1/2 weeks of the knee progressively feeling better, I biked 8 miles to the gym, swam a half mile and biked home. Needless to say, I'm a big fan! Not only did the surgery go well, I found that he takes the time to fully explain things to his patients. It's almost to the point that when he is talking to you in an exam room you start to feel guilty about how much of his time you are taking and you wonder why he is not rushing out of the room like so many other doctors do.

I have been seeing Dr. Barker for nine years now. I was referred to him by my rheumatologist to deal with the degenerative effects of arthritis. He is very compassionate, an incredible listener, and motivator. I love his energy, it is very encouraging. He has dealt with issues of my various joint problems and, so far, one knee surgery; I have a lot of confidence in him.

I have had surgery by Dr, Barker three separate times. Once for a shoulder problem, once for a meniscus 'trim' and the last time for a meniscus repair. He is 100% professional, He is a brilliant doctor. His bedside manner is the best I have ever experienced, He takes all the time you need to explain things and even takes phone calls for post surgery issues. If he was a GP, I'd want him for our family doctor.
