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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Barber

from Krishna in CA March 15, 2020 for Donald W. Barber, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Barber for nearly 20 years! I am now 82 years old. I feel that he understands me well and he is in tune with my health! I had an health episode 18 months ago or so. Suddenly I lost 10 pounds of my weight in two weeks!! I was alarmed and scared.

from Craig in CA March 13, 2020 for Donald W. Barber, MD

I've been lucky enough to be in relatively good health, but Dr. Barber is a big part of that. He's always been there for me, year after year.

Do I give him grief about those prostate exams? You bet.

I love the guy anyway.

Thank you for being you, Skip.

from Gayle in CA March 11, 2020 for Donald W. Barber, MD

Dr. Barber is very thorough in his physical examinations whether during the yearly evaluation or an office visit!! He has amazing critical thinking skills and I do believe saved my husband from a heart attack in the near future.

Thank you Dr. Barber and your entire staff for creating a wonderful health care experience for me. Whenever I have an illness I always get the support and kindness to help me get back on the road to recovery. I am blessed to have you all as part of my overall well being system and I am grateful for your knowledge and medical expertise whenever I need it.

from Lovena in CA March 26, 2018 for Donald W. Barber, MD

My husband, Harold, and I appreciate Dr. Barber's caring and thoughtful attention to our medical concerns. We trust and rely on his opinions. We've come to care about him also, and wouldn't want any other doctor. Besides being a very good physician, he is a good family man, and we appreciate that. We love Barbie too.

Don't go anywhere, Dr. Barber, we need you.

Skip, thank you for the informed, intelligent, honest, and caring approach you bring to your practice. Thank you and your staff, too, for going the extra mile needed to get me accepted into a retirement community. I'll miss you when we move.
