Specialties

Dr. Bruce A Barker has the following 2 specialties

  • Bariatric Medicine

    Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. Bariatric specialists are trained in medically supervised weight loss and the management of obesity as a chronic condition. These specialists are skilled in various disciplines that help patients lose weight and obtain optimal health.
    The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy, anti-obesity medication, pharmacotherapy and surgery. Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.
    Patients defined as obese or having unhealthy Body Mass Indices (BMI) have much greater risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension, many types of cancer and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
    One subspecialty of bariatrics is the focus on the correlation between obesity and mortality.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Patient

Dr Barker is the best !! I have been going to him for 8 yrs now. I have a lot of health issues, over the years doctors have kind of done this or that , but nothing helped. DR Barker believes in tests. For me it has been a life saver. After some tooling and re tooling, Dr Barker has got me on a treatment plan that has made my issues a little easier to deal with. HUGE. He is always running a little behind do to no fault of his own. When someone comes in to be seen for one aliment and then gives him the , OH by the way, statement then it starts. It not the doctors fault. It is the patients. The only issue I have had with his practice, He is almost impossible to get into him, if you have a illness pop up, flu. etc. He does have an assistant. Dr Crawford. she is good also, but with my health I would prefer himself. But she does a great job also. This man works his tail off, to help his patients, I am 49 yrs old and I will go to Dr Barker,. until my time is up. 10 stars.

Saw his nurse practitioner today extremely impressed with her and entire staff. I have a complicated medical history and she made being a new patient a very easy transition. Could not be more pleased!
