5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Very Satisfied - New York

Dr. Barker is amazing. My nose came out looking spectacular. I am very happy with the results. Dr. Barker is a very patient man and is extremely understanding. He answered all of my questions and whenever I felt any discomfort he was there for me via phone or last minute appointments. I would recommend him to anyone.

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Professional,skilled, and Personable

Dr Barker was professional and personable. At my consultation appointment he explained all aspects of the septoplasty process to my satisfaction. He was assuring right before the surgery as well. I knew what to expect during the recovery process because he had prepped me in advance. My initial recovery time was about 3 weeks. My time out of work was 3 days. I'm very satisfied with my results. I'm glad I chose to have the surgery - I'm breathing easier.

Excellent Surgeon! He Helped Me Breathe So Much Better! - Chattanooga, TN

If you are needing any kind of nose surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Barker! At first, I was very apprehensive about getting my deviated septum fixed, but he was genuinely kind and patient throughout the entire process, answering my questions and thoroughly preparing me for what to expect. He also provided great suggestions on post-surgery care, which proved to be very helpful in increasing the...

51 Year Old with Dorsal Hump - Chattanooga, TN

I had considered rhinoplasty for a number of years in order to correct injuries sustained in my childhood and young adult years. My introverted, type A personality caused me to view rhinoplasty as a risk, which led to varied and numerous questions. Dr. Barker patiently, efficiently, and professionally answered each one which led me to proceed with the operation. I am completely pleased with...

Terrible Results And Worse Repsonse From Dr. Barker

I went to Dr. Barker for rhinoplasty and chin implant (when he was still based in New York) in September 2014. The total cost was ~$9,000. Initially, the rhinoplasty looked fine, but the chin implant was sticking out on the left with shooting pains going through my jaw, for the latter of which he said would settle down eventually. By March, the nose started to get really out of shape and...

1 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Horrible Experince

Horrible! I went to this doctor for rhinoplasty, but I didn't get the results I was looking for. He did a follow-up "procedure" which didn't work either. I was told that he would do the next surgery for free, if I wasn't satisfied. However, when I told them I wasn't, he dismissed me and wouldn't correct it. Horrible! Avoid this doctor if you can!
