Donald W. Barber, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The goal of my practice is to provide state-of-the-art primary care to optimize the quality of life for my patients and minimize the impact of disease, aging and suffering. The goal is getting things accomplished in an atmosphere of mutual respect, understanding, compassion, collaboration and professionalism.
I believe that the practice of medicine is an opportunity for me to use my gifts, talents and passions to partner with my patients, listen to them, understand their unique needs and come to know them as intimately as possible. Having developed close and personal relationships with my patients, and through the use of my acquired knowledge and experience as a physician, I am able and work side-by-side with my patients to achieve the best possible outcomes for their wellness.
