Not Accepting Patients

Even though this website (vitals.com) shows that Dr. Barker is accepting new patients, unfortunately, he is NOT and, according to his staff, he has been "full" for a long time. Had heard so many good things about him, was disappointed to discover this. : ( The only way to post this was to rate him, so gave him 5 stars.
