Over 10yrs ago my mother had her gastric bypass done by Dr Wade. Long story short my sister and I also our family almost lost her. At the time her surgery was done my mom had a stroke and has since had 9' cut from her small intestines. Life has not been the same my sister and were forced to leave college and take care of our mother because we were told by him that she wasn't going to make it. I would not recommend this man to anyone for any reason. to this day we still are battling with issues my mother hasn't worked and has been on disability for over 9 yrs.
My wife had several compilations after her surgery with Dr barker starting with a collapsed lung then an out of control hart rate He did a second surgery that ended with her being brain dead Through out all of this heart break Dr barker continued to fight The good fight and god bless him it just wasn't meant to Be
Didn't clean wound before closing me up after bowel obstruction surgery, also placed an ostomy bag right under my breast, i had to have a 2nd surgery from a dr. Who takes dr. Barkers BOTCHED surgeries. I was in ICU for 6 weeks, had to have wouND reopened and vacuumed closed, using my leg for a skin graft. Also in bariatrick surgery clipped my intestine and my bowels were leaking into my body. Had to have emergency surgery. Dr has an aloof, rude personality once procedure completed, as if it's the patients fault for his almost life ending errors.
Absolutely wonderful outcome without ever so much as one single problem! Followed my instructions and dropped 115 pds. Now, over 9 years later I have a normal life and have kept off over 100 pds all this time.....never dropped below 100# loss. Dr Barker is a God among surgeons as far as I am concerned!
