"Dr. Barber is the first doctor I've had to pray with me before surgery. Consultation before surgery was very thorough and professional. He was not in a rush to leave and wanted to make sure I understood my upcoming procedure. Following his instructions I've had zero problems since my surgery. I highly recommend his services."

Dr Barber gave me a total knee replacement in my right knee and a partial replacement in my left knee. I can now walk and perform normal activities again. It is great to get back on the golf course!"

"I had a full knee replacement surgery last Wednesday. I stayed in the hospital that night. I was walking 3 hours after surgery and was able to go home 31 hours after surgery. My progress has been overwhelming quick. My physical therapist said he has not had any problems with patients that have used Dr. Barber."

"Dr. Barber performed bilateral knee replacement on me in September 2014 and the results have been incredible! I am free of pain, able to do what I had restricted or given up prior to surgery. Not only a skilled surgeon, he is caring, patient, thorough, and humble. He helped me understand the importance of therapy and my role in rehab. Praying with me before surgery reaffirmed my choice that I was in the right hands. Thank you Dr. B for making such a difference in my life...I am forever grateful."
