  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • 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.

I haven't been to a doctor for 15 years because I hate going to offices/hospitals/labs but I did see her since my friends, family and neighbors were demanding. It took me a while to calm down, but I was so glad to have found a really caring doctor. She actually spends time with you and relates. No in and out in 15 minutes. I'm so glad I found a personable, caring, fun person to deal with my concerns. What a great choice I got!

Great doctor!

I never had a dotors visit like this before. I took my mom to this doctor last week and she has lots of health problems. This doctor examined every bit of my mom and wanted to know all of her problems. If you have older family or parents you should see her. She is a great doctor!

She is kind and smart

THis is a highly specialized office with only board certified geriatric doctors. Everyone in the office has special training in caring for older patients. We were referred to Dr. Barker by our neighbor. She has a closed practice but made an exception for my family. This was he best visit we have ever had with a doctor. Dr. Barker was focusd in on my mom and her medical conditions immediately. She tried to work with us and was extremely understanding of what we as a family could and could not manage. I am so thankful for her and her staff. She will continue to work with us and our primary doctor to monitor my mom. Do whatever you can to see anyone in this office...I ahve heard good things about all of the doctors here. Our favorite is Dr. Barker!
