Specialties

Dr. Michael J Barber has the following 2 specialties

  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

    While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
    They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

This man is a Monster

Dr. Barber took liberties upon my sleeping husband in a non-emergency situation, and took away his heartbeat - forever making him dependent on a pacemaker, when there were many alternatives available to us, that would not have been so devastating to him. However, Dr. Barber wasn't able to personally perform the more sophisticated surgery (and bill for it) so he did the less sophisticated thing, and this has forever destroyed his heartbeat, and with it - his health. My husband got so sick that he was recommended for a heart transplant, but the drugs that Dr. Barber put him on also destroyed his lungs and liver, so he couldn't get a transplant. This so-called Dr. set him up to die. DO not EVER visit this doctor.
