"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

"She is the best doctor I ever had"- R.W. / Healthgrades / Sep 14, 2021
"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."- A.K. / Google / Jun 25, 2021
CANDIDATES FOR MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS

How Can Medical Weight Loss Help Me?
At Integrative Pain and Wellness Center, we will start off your weight loss journey by getting to know you and your needs. Prior to your first visit, we will have you fill out several questionnaires, gather your medical history documents, and complete a full set of appropriate lab or body composition analysis tests ordered by the doctor. These labs are typically covered by insurance or affordable cash payment options and will screen for thyroid, adrenal, and other hormone disorders, micronutrients, and gut health.
At your first visit, the physician will go over your complete medical history, lab results, and detailed lifestyle review. It is important to address the underlying issues first, as we work with you to develop the best plan to make sustainable life changes. Your monthly membership includes health coaching, monitoring, support, and direct communication with your physician. We will work together with you to help you meet your weight loss goals. Even though we will give you all of the tools and resources you need to succeed, this journey is a partnership. We'll be encouraging you and helping you overcome your struggles until the very end.
