"Love this Dr & his staff. Dr Barber prayed with me & my daughter before the total knee replacement surgery. A Dr who prays is a rare thing these days. I was impressed. But even more impressed with the constant flow of information from his staff and the helpful videos that he sent to me as I recovered & got stronger. I would definitely recommend him to anyone with knee or hip problems. Thank you Dr Barber for my newfound mobility."

"Dr. Barber is a wonderful, caring doctor. He actually joined with my family and prayed before we went to surgery. I respect him for that, tells me that he depends on God for guidance, as I do, and that meant a lot to me. I went back to work in 4 weeks, never had any problems with my knee. I highly recommend Dr. Barber."
