Not only alive, but walking.

"I was involved in a serious motorcycle accident in 2012. Many said I wouldn’t make it through the first night after the accident, and certainly not through the surgeries. Dr. Barber thought differently. He basically put me back together again. I am not only alive, but walking today thanks to Dr. Barber’s quick thinking and precision. Even the scars from my surgery are tiny and barely noticeable. Truly an incredible doctor."
