Doctor Barker is an excellent spine surgeon, in 2018 he repaired my 2nd broken neck. At the time of surgery I was 62 yrs old, I am 65 now and completely healed. The injury was unsurvivable without surgery. Doctor Barker saved my life, I do recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic surgery. Thank you Doctor Barker.
