Patient Reviews
Dec 03, 2020
Dr Barker got me in on the Monday after Thanksgiving as my eye had hemorrhaged. He ran several tests to confirm his diagnosis, very thorough. He took time to explain what had happened so I understood where my eye was medically, and what is needed going forward. This ran past their closing time, I appreciate the care and concern for my eye.
