"Had a first visit with Dr. Barber, was really great that he told me the alternatives that were available for me, and thoroughly discussed all of them. He is pleasant to speak to and I will be having a knee replacement done in coming months (soon). I am very comfortable with his service and hope to have a great experience."

"Dr. Barber put a new knee in my right leg on June 12. Today, September1, the scar is barely visible and I'm walking as if I never had surgery. Dr. Barber explained exactly what to expect and how to handle the surgery. He prayed with me before surgery, which made me extremely at ease. His nurse, Shantay, was always delightful and helpful. Fabulous personality! If ever I need, or anyone else need. replacement surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Barber."

"Visit was a consultation that went very well and was informative. Dr Barber was direct and to the point on what could be expected during and after the surgery. I live approximately 2 hours away and he would try to schedule as much of the pre surgery requirements locally in order to minimize travel. I was very impressed with Dr. Barber."
