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.

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.

I believe that when your doctor is not only exceptionally gifted, absolutely committed, and uncompromisingly thorough, you are very, very fortunate.
