I have been a patient for almost 20 years and have always found Dr. Barker and her staff very friendly and professional. Appointments are easy to get, the wait is not usually very long beyond your appointment time. When I developed a serious vision problem Dr. Barker was instrumental diagnosing and getting me the right referral to fix my problem and today my vision is great!
