I love Dr Barker! He is personable, understanding, patient, and thorough. I have been to see him for an ingrown toenail, and both times I have felt nervous. He took his time making sure I was comfortable, talked about lighthearted things during the procedure to ease my mind, and told me what he was doing. He even made me feel comfortable that I had to told my 2 month old during the procedure! I wish he was a primary physician because I would definitely see him regularly.

I am being taken advantage of by Dr. Barker, a podiatrist in the Metro Health system. After my primary care physician referred me to Dr.Barker, I went to see him. He saw me for 30 seconds, looked at my big toe, says it is fungus but orders a fungus lab just to be sure. Now he wants to see me again only to tell me to go get blood work only to have to come back and see him again after the blood results come back. I was treated successfully with Lamisil before--my four other toes cleared up.
