Meet Sondra Beth Barker, CRNP, MS, RN
A "Woman to Woman" Connection
Sondra has worked closely with Dr. Duncan for more than four years, and the two providers take a team approach to women's health care. As Sondra is often the first person you will encounter in the office, she takes the time to sit with you, getting to know you personally to understand your concerns and issues. Establishing a personal rapport with you is important to Sondra. Many women first come in to the office feeling embarrased and even confused by their symptoms. Sondra explains that this initial "woman to woman" talk will help you feel more at ease.
As a nurse practitioner, Sondra is involved in all aspects of urogynecological care, from performing initial medical work-ups, to urodynamics testing, treatment and post-operative care. Throughout your experience, Sondra will play an active role in your overall care, scheduling tests and procedures, following up with you and being available to answer any questions and provide much needed support.
Philosophy of Care
"I treat every patient how I would want my own family to be treated," explains Sondra. She focuses on ensuring women feel comfortable and relaxed, helping to make their visit a more pleasant experience. She understands that urogynecologic conditions are very delicate, personal issues for women, and she lets her patients know that she truly cares and is there to help them through to a better life.
