I am a fifty-nine year old woman, so I’ve seen a few doctors in my time. Dr. Barter is the finest doctor I have ever seen. Full stop. He is kind and patient and through his expert guidance has kept me healthy and a lot less anxious about my condition. He is a giant in the field of gynecology having had a lead in the development of the HPV vaccination, and testifying as an expert witness against a Fortune 500 company in the talc-powder/ovarian cancer connection lawsuit, to name a few. Above all, he has taken the time to really get to know me, always asking about my family when I make my annual Barter pilgrimage for a check up. I recently saw him at his new location, at the Adventist hospital which is a really beautiful place. At the appointment I told him I’d follow him to the dark side of the moon if that is where he chooses to practice. He’s that good!
