“…the best of Eastern and Western approaches with an emphasis on well-researched, clinical methods.”

Elaine Smith, Los Feliz

I originally began seeing Dr. Barker 5 years ago for hypothyroidism and anemia, and I was thrilled to find a doctor who takes his time during each visit trying to understand the whole person sitting across from him. I also liked that Dr. Barker’s take on health integrates the best of Eastern and Western approaches with an emphasis on well-researched, clinical methods. Rather quickly we dealt with my conditions and I rarely needed to see Dr. Barker until I was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago.

Since then, I have gotten to see a lot of Dr. Barker as well as the other doctors and staff members of Paracelsus. Eight months ago, I underwent surgery and afterwards I wasn’t ready to endure chemo, so I began doing weekly IV treatments at Paracelsus. Once or twice a week, I spend time receiving infusions during which I am compassionately cared for by members of the staff, and my lab tests have show this is paying off – after surgery, my tumor markers were above the normal range. After 2 months of infusions, they were back in the normal range. When we tested them again a few months later, they had dropped twice as much.

I guess I sort of lucked out in that the doctor I was seeing for general purposes happens to specialize in cancer treatment. My appreciation of Dr. Barker has deepened quite a bit as there have now been many difficult things to discuss and hard decisions to make. In the end, Dr. Barker is a thoughtful listener with an open mind who will sensitively map out the most pragmatic treatment approach. In my case, the pragmatic thing to do at this point is to add some chemotherapy in with the treatment I am currently doing. This has been a very hard pill for me to swallow, but in the end I trust Dr. Barker’s input more than any other doctor I have ever known, and I am less apprehensive about going through it since he offers a treatment protocol that will increase the chemo’s effectiveness and reduce its side effects.

“…the atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming. It feels like home. I love the staff, too!”

Kristine L., Highland Park

I have hormonal imbalances, adrenal fatigue and something called pernicious anemia. Dr. Lily spent a lot of time talking to me, getting a full picture of my current heath situation. She found out about my nutrition and how much exercise I get, as well as who I am personally and spiritually. She gave a lot of attention to what was going on in my life, and how that was affecting my health. At each appointment, Dr. Lily assesses exactly where I am then adjusts supplements, gives homeopathic remedies, and/or recommends tests. She always spends plenty of time showing me test results and explaining what they mean. I have learned so much from her. My health has turned around dramatically!

Dr. Lily is also incredibly thoughtful and sweet. I look forward to my appointments with her. Whenever I go to Paracelsus, the atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming. It feels like home. I love the staff, too!

“All four of my kids love going to see Dr. Lily. I no longer have anxiety about taking my children to the doctor.”

Sarah Burt

I turned to Paracelsus after numerous trips to our traditional pediatrician and allergist trying to figure out what was causing my 18 month old’s repeated ear
infections and chest congestion. After about three rounds of antibiotics, getting lectured about how not getting vaccinated was causing the ear infections and then being sent home with five different medications, I went to my car… cried, called my husband and said we need to go down a different path. A friend recommended Paracelsus. After my 15 minute phone consultation with Dr. Lily, I was sold. Our first visit was VERY thorough and I left SOOO relieved. Dr. Lily did not prescribe my son medication after medication to eliminate the symptoms. Instead she was able to get to the root of the problem by simply taking the time to understand him and how his body functioned. Within less than a week of our visit to Dr. Lily, his chest congestion was completely gone, there were no more ear infections and he was able to sleep through the night. He is now three and has not had a single ear infection since. All four of my kids (7 months to 8 years old) love going to see Dr. Lily. I no longer have anxiety about taking my children to the doctor. I’m always relieved when I leave their office, feeling the genuine care for my children and their health. The front desk staff is also so welcoming and cheerful. LOVE IT! And LOVE THEM!

“When I first met with Dr. Barker, it was evident that he genuinely cared about me and what I was going through.”

Sharon, San Dimas

When I was in my mid-twenties, I was diagnosed with Lupus. After about 20 years of dealing with the pain, fever and fatigue, the disease attacked my kidneys. This was a frightening experience by itself but I became even more frightened when my western doctor prescribed chemotherapy for my condition. I took one dose and decided I wanted to consider other treatment options.

I began seeing a different doctor, and also discovered Dr. Barker. When I first met with Dr. Barker, it was evident that he genuinely cared about me and what I was going through. I quickly grew confident in him and found that I was comfortable talking to him. When discussing my condition, he took his time and was very thorough.

Dr. Barker worked with my new rheumatologist, used a variety of treatment techniques, and gave me suggestions to help me take responsibility for my own well-being and to achieve optimal health.

I greatly appreciate the professionalism and care that I experience and would highly recommend the Paracelsus Natural Family Health Center to everyone that I know.

Thank you to the dedicated staff and especially to Dr. Barker for all the care and support.

“I am sure I would not be alive today without the health support I received from them”

Terese B.

I wanted to write this recommendation for Dr. Brousseau and Dr. Lily, because I am sure I would not be alive today without the health support I received from them for my advanced ovarian cancer over the last four years ago. I was given a death sentence by several oncologists before I began to work with the doctors at Paracelsus. I needed help with my immune system. I did IV treatments as well as taking many supplements and following their lifestyle advice. The most valuable thing to me is the partnership relationship which allows me to have a say in my treatment. My cancer markers are in the normal range now!

“Even at short notice, someone there always finds time in their busy schedules to accommodate me”

Angela K., South Pasadena

As someone who has been a regular Paracelsus patient for over six years, I can safely say that you will get excellent care here! Dr. Barker and Dr. Lily are very dedicated, kind and caring individuals.

In order to manage the side effects from one of the prescriptions given to me by a traditional doctor, it has become necessary to get two IV Pushes per week. Even at short notice, someone there always finds time in their busy schedules to accommodate me because they know how uncomfortable I would be otherwise.

Dr. Barker and Dr. Lily have both been very gracious and responsible about answering questions in between sessions, renewing prescriptions, and ordering labs. Dr. Lily even learned how to adjust my hiatal hernia for me which I really appreciate!

As if this wasn’t enough, the office is stunningly decorated. It feels like a peaceful oasis. I also love the receptionists who are always so sweet and patient.
