Wade Barker, M.D.
First impression was that he was very personable and made me feel at ease. I saw him at both my pre-op consultations and he came to see me before my EGD procedure. He also spoke with my husband after the EGD and the surgery.rnrnI would have liked to see him at my post-op visit one week after my surgery.rnrnHis office staff is great, although I was not impressed by his assistant, Bobby. Bobby went over the risks with me at my second pre-op consult and all he did was read off a piece of paper. He was not able to answer my questions. I also saw him on my post-op visit and again was not able to satisfactorily answer my questions.rnrnFuture patients should know he is VERY BUSY and not always accessible.rnrnHe does have a structured aftercare program but these are not all handled by him or his office. I think that he should have a post-op visit one month after surgery -- not 3 months.rnrnThe risks were covered by his assistant, Bobby (see above).rnrnOverall, I was very pleased and would recommend him.rnrnI believe a combination of surgical competence and bedside manner are equally important. Dr. Barker has, without a doubt, the surgical competence; and he is very warm and compassionate -- he just needs to remember to make time to visit with his patients after the surgery.rnrnI am not familiar with other patients of Dr. Barker, so these are just my own impressions.
