    Tom H
  • My experience was pleasant beginning with the receptionist or intake person. She was prompt and courteous. Dr. Barth was professional and has a very good bedside manner. His diagnosis was right on and his treatment was very effective. I was seen at the Des Peres office.

    Dennis C
  • Dr. Barth and the staff at the Alton office did a great job to make me feel comfortable and informed when it came to ordering and using my new "boot" for my plantar fasciitis. As of about 2 weeks ago, my foot pain is GONE! Thank you all so much.
