Dr. Barter is one of the best doctor to come around. I came close in having cancer. First thing he did was assure me that I was going to be ok. He made calls after surgery to make let family know I was done and answer any questions they had. He is truly a miracle worker. I adore this doctor. He came highly recommended by my previous boss but never expecting more then just a regular basic doctor and patient relationship but after being a patient of his. I now believe there are truly some excellent one and he is by for the best example of what a great doctor is.
When another "doctor" mis-diagnosed me with advanced ovarian cancer, Dr. Barter took the time to evaluate and explain, to myself and my spouse, my medical situation. He gave me hope, based upon his medical expertise, when others had just given me a death sentence. A total hysterectomy was needed, but Dr. Barter was right: my very large tumor was benign. He took a genuine interest in the whole patient, not just the "body parts" and surgery. I would, and I did, trust him with my life.
This is the second time I had to go back to Dr. Barter. He doesn't take the time to explain everything. I had an ovary and my right fallopian tube removed in September. Now my other ovary has a tumor growing on it. He recommends a full hysterectomy, but that means instance menopause for me. I understand all of that, but he hasn't taken the time to explain, what the means, how I deal with that, or if I will have to take HRT. In addition, he is recommending chemo, and yet again hasn't taken the time to explain that either. He is like well let me get in there and see what is going on.I am not Thanksgiving turkey, and he needs to explain everything.
