We have had a great experience with Dr. Barker! Our newborn had a tongue and lip tie revised, and Dr. Barker worked with her to relieve restrictions. In three sessions, she has gone from a poor sleeper in constant discomfort to a happy, relaxed baby. He helped loosen up her tongue restrictions and she is nursing much better (and my pain is gone)! I highly recommend Dr. Barker. More

Dr. Barker has helped me turn my health around without the use of harmful medications. I was diagnosed with RA and didn't want to take the meds with horrible side effects. He has helped get my RA under control, I am off my cholesterol and blood pressure meds. He has helped with hormone treatment which has improved my life tremendously. And at the young age of 60 I feel fabulous thanks to Dr. Barker. More

I had seen multiple doctors including a primary care physician and dermatologist regarding severe back acne and nobody was able to help me. After one session with Isabel I saw tremendous results. I have seen her two more times since and my back is like night and day. She is amazing and really knows what she’s doing! I would highly recommend. I also saw Dr. Barker for Bodyworks and allergy testing. He is phenomenal. I will absolutely be a lifelong patient. More

Dr. Barker has treated others in my family, and we had great results. I started seeing Dr. Barker for some issues that resurfaced and other offices were unable to help me. After some testing we found some issues that other offices did not even consider! After treatment, I am feeling better in almost every conceivable way. It feels great to be off different medications that I always wished I did not have to take. My overall health is great, and I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Barker and Integrative Pain and Wellness Center. More

I wanted to share how much appreciation I have for Dr Barker , I came in two weeks ago with pain all over my head and neck from wisdom teeth extraction. I literally couldn’t function at all, not able to go work or do anything. After 4 treatments I’m a new person ! He has hands of god and he is effective . I definitely recommend this amazing place and Dr Barker . More

Dr. Barker DO and Dr. Melanie Gray DO are on another level. I started OMM (Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine) treatments about a year ago for a variety of impact injuries from sports, motor vehicle accidents having significant pain, pressure, nausea, irregular heartbeats, lower back pain, torso discomfort from scoliosis, neck pain, headaches etc. Since seeing Dr. Barker and Dr Melanie I can say that their tactics of intervention were impeccable and noticeably different from any Doctors I had been to in the past. What I have loved the most is how passionate they are about their work. They take their time to address every need but most importantly... they listened. Even after the first treatments I could tell they were onto something. After a few treatments, 90% of the time I had no symptoms. The 10% was usually sleeping wrong or me doing something silly but even so, my body started resolving irritants quicker. Then I reinjured myself after a electric bike accident and had a full blown torn labrum we later found with imaging. One exosome injection later, I felt again 90% improvement from one treatment! I decided to try another round several months later and BAM! Now I have my FULL range of motion, stable and pain free. As a Massage Therapist, you can understand why this is so important... Now I feel like I have my life back. I have confidence in every step and every breathe. Thank you Dr. Barker and Dr. Melanie Gray for always being there when I need you most! Thank you for fixing me when I was broken. More

My family and I have been under Dr. Barker’s care since August 2018. We have seen him for numerous reasons now from illness to injury to somewhat behavioral issues and he has been a tremendous help in all cases. We usually see him for OMM specific work but we have also used him for allergy and micronutrient bloodwork tests and analyzing the results for recommended lifestyle changes and care plans. I first started seeing Dr. Barker to manage severe and constant migraines that I never seemed able to get a handle on. Through multiple OMM sessions we got the migraine frequency down to a manageable level. Once I started seeing real progress I unfortunately got in a car accident that gave me some neck whiplash injury to deal with and then I became pregnant. The pregnancy presented unique problems for me that Dr. Barker was able to help me manage. I felt confident with his aide that I was doing all the bodywork necessary to provide a safe vessel for my growing baby. He even provided an OMM session for my newborn when he did an OMM session for me a few days after delivery. That session following the birth was incredibly helpful to realign my body from the physical strain of labor and delivery but also incredibly helpful in helping my baby release muscle restrictions and gain mobility and be more at ease when nursing. Unfortunately for me, my baby and I had quite a bit of difficulty with establishing a breastfeeding relationship but Dr. Barker was extremely helpful throughout. He assisted in identifying severe lip and tongue ties and recommending a specialist to help provide revision. He provided OMM bodywork prior to the revision procedure so baby would be more at ease and his body welcoming to the procedure as well as a follow-up OMM session to help baby post-procedure during the healing process. Dr. Barker has always been a dependable and wonderful provider through all of these life’s adventures for us but the most impressive result I experienced was specific to my own breastfeeding challenges that didn’t seem to be caused by a baby’s latch or the needs of a newborn but something within me causing major pain. Dr. Barker aided me by doing chest specific OMM treatment where he identified and released serious restrictions. The relief was immediate! I could tell just by scooping baby up and carrying him around the office for a diaper change and out to the car that my chest and shoulders felt tremendously better. But the real noticeable improvement was the rest of our day and overnight. Nursing him was so much easier and so much more comfortable! My chest finally felt relaxed and free to move with the needs of caring for a baby. I cannot thank Dr. Barker enough for helping shift my newborn experiences to the positive! I am incredibly appreciative and grateful that I have Dr. Barker on my family’s care team! More

My daughter was diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 14. After 4 surgeries, her endo grows back despite being in medically induced menopause. We found Dr. Barker through our PCP and we cant say enough great things about him. She has been experiencing pain again with her adhesions and does not want to have another surgery at the moment. When her pain is too much to handle, Dr. Barker is able to manipulate her abdomen to separate her adhesions and reduce her pain. She is also a dancer and he manages other pains she experiences with minor dance injuries. More

I started seeing Dr Barker over a year ago. I was having a frozen shoulder that was being treated for six months with no results. Other physicians had decided to do surgery. Dr Barker manipulated my shoulder 2 times and it healed without surgery. I suffer from an autoimmune disease and he is successfully treating me with low dose Naltrexone. He is now my primary physician. I have diabetes and heart disease. I had problems taking diabetic drugs and balancing my glucose. Dr Barker has guided me through making a change to insulin and I have never felt better. He is very caring, conscientious and thorough. We are Thankful Dr Barker has taken me on as a patient. More

I first contacted Dr. Barker about a year ago, my lactation consultant recommended him since my newborn daughter was having trouble latching. He treated my daughter, and treated me as well since I was suffering from some neck pain. Life got busy after that, and this year when I started having back pain and neck pain again, I went back to Dr. Barker. He has helped me feel better. I’m finally not achy all the time. His new office is beautiful, and Lindsey is great and very helpful. More

We absolutely love Dr. Barker and recommend him to anyone who is looking for a natural solution or an alternative to "traditional" methods that may not be working for you. He has helped us with our toddler who has had a tough time with ear infections and acute upper respiratory issues, as well as worked on my husband for thyroid issues. I strongly believe he is the reason why my husband did not have to get his thyroid removed when another Doctor told us it was the only option. He is very professional and extremely good at what he does. We feel so lucky to have found Dr. Barker and will continue to use him for any and all of our future health needs. More

My son had a dental accident 7 years ago, which caused his bottom jaw to click to the right as he opened it. Dr. Barker is helping us to realign that jaw so that when braces are applied, they are applied to a strong and steady foundation. Dr. Barker did an amazing job in explaining to me and my son what he was doing during the session and why. I would highly recommend Dr. Barker for anyone. He works with realignment of the body in a very different and functional modality. More

My TMJ specialist recommended Dr. Barker to help treat the pain I experience in my jaw, head, neck, shoulders, lower back & hip associated with my TMJ. Before seeing Dr. Barker, I was seeking treatment from a chiropractor and an acupuncturist a couple of times a week to manage the pain.  The osteopathic manipulations Dr. Barker uses are more gentle and last longer than the chiropractic and acupuncture manipulations.  Dr. Barker's technique is similar to acupuncture in that I am extremely relaxed throughout the treatment. Dr. Barker collaborated with my TMJ specialist and guided her before, during and after my lip release which provided a lot of relief from headaches and neck pain. Dr. Barker is also successfully treating my imbalanced hormones with bio identical hormones to help me transition into menopause. My oldest son & my daughter are also being treated by Dr. Barker.  As a baseball player and a clarinetist, my oldest son benefits from the musculoskeletal manipulation treatments and exercises recommended by Dr. Barker. Dr. Barker evaluated my daughter for enlarged tonsils; tongue & lip ties (which she has); & spinal misalignments as well as ADHD symptoms.  He provided feedback to help us determine the order in which and how to best treat her symptoms. I highly recommend Dr. Barker to anyone seeking a holistic, integrative approach to overall health and wellness. More
