"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."- K.P. / Google / Jun 24, 2020
"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."- C.F. / Google / Feb 05, 2020

"I brought my 3 month old son in to see Dr.Barker and I am ecstatic over how great he was with my son. He was very professional and informative. Since I had my baby he has been very uncomfortable with being in a car seat and I’m almost immune to him screaming when I put him in. Today was the first time that I put him in and he did not cry and actually fell asleep. I could cry from happiness. Thank you Dr. Barker!!!"- J.H. / Google / Nov 22, 2021

CANDIDATES FOR NONSURGICAL FACIAL CONTOURING
You may be a candidate for nonsurgical facial contouring if you are at or working to your goal weight but still have areas of the face with stubborn fat and loose skin, such as the cheeks, chin, and neck. During a consultation with a member of our team, we will ask about your medical history, areas of concern, and goals to figure out if this treatment is right for you and your needs. We will then work with you to design a treatment plan that addresses your unique situation and produces the results you want.
HOW IS IT DONE?
After your personalized treatment plan is created, you will relax in one of our comfortable treatment beds. Once you're ready, we will maneuver the applicator over the intended treatment areas several times to ensure comprehensive coverage. The majority of patients find this treatment to be comfortable and free of discomfort; however, if you're worried about pain, we may apply a topical numbing cream to desensitize the area. As soon as your treatment is complete, you will be allowed to go home and resume your typical daily activities. Depending on the starting condition of your face, chin, and neck, as well as your goals, you may require several treatments to achieve your ideal outcomes.
