I've been coming to see Dr. Barkley for about 18 years. I always come to him and will continue to do so. He is concerned about me and makes sure that he has all my information to help me follow the next step. I feel comfortable talking to him about any problems I may be facing. He is truly a great doctor.

In the past I frequently relocated due to job opportunities. As a result I have experience with many different GP's. I've been with Dr. Barkley for almost 2 decades now, and Dr. Barkley is by far the best of the GP's I have used.
