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.

I believe that when your doctor is not only exceptionally gifted, absolutely committed, and uncompromisingly thorough, you are very, very fortunate. When you can also add that he is a true friend, well, then you realize how very special your experience is. Skip is in a league by himself. No one is better.

It was such a great comfort to know that Doc was not on a time schedule that prevented him from responding to my concerns. Oh yes, and he know what email is unlike MOST other practitioners... I feel fortunate am I under his care, I'm just sayin...

I have been seeing Dr. Donald Barber for twenty-plus years. Sixteen years ago I had one of those heart check exams and it showed what appeared to be a small spot on my left lung. After consultations, Dr. Barber insisted I have an exploratory operation at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena. It turned out I had lung cancer and two-thirds of my left lung was removed. Frankly put, his insistence… See more

Dr. Barber accepted me in to his practice out of the great kindness of his heart. He had been my husband's doctor for many years, but not mine. But when I asked him, even though he was probably full, he accepted me. And he has been an absolute Prince with me...he listens, (a lot), he is always positive even when I've been a super challenge for him, and I know he truly cares.

I truly believe that Dr. Barber saved my life on two separate occasions- once with prostate cancer and the other with breast cancer (yes, I am one of the few unfortunate males to have breast cancer). In neither case did I have outward symptoms and did not suspect the cancer on either occasion. Thank you, Dr. Barber

A great doctor and person. Up on the latest research, etc. Always very attentive and, most importantly, basically saved my life when it became clear I might have lung cancer in a very early stage. Really can`t say enough good things about Donald Barber, MD.

from Nancy in CA February 12, 2014 for Donald W. Barber, MD
