Holly A. Barko, M.D.
After completing medical school at UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas, an internship in internal medicine at Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, followed by residency in Anesthesiology at the Harvard-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA, Dr. Barko returned to Dallas to work for a private practice anesthesiology group. At that time, she also became a client at Advanced Skin Fitness Dallas, and quickly fell in love with the world of skin care and aesthetics.
Dr. Barko loves administering anesthesia, performing nerve blocks to relieve pain, and helping patients get through the stress of surgery. However, after a number of years working, she observed a trend in her patient population. Despite many advances in medical knowledge and technology, patients were becoming sicker, more overweight, more stressed, and relying more and more on prescription medications to treat symptoms but not the whole picture. Although genetics plays a role, many illnesses can be prevented or even reversed if there is early recognition and intervention. She felt frustrated by the fact that so many patients had progressed to the point of requiring surgery, when early interventions may have taken them down a much different path. Dr. Barko decided to study aesthetics, functional and anti-aging medicine, to have the opportunity to intervene early and help patients look and feel younger, optimizing their wellness with a personalized care plan.
By looking at each patient’s unique physiology, we can decrease reliance on prescription medications and guide patients towards improved wellness, youthfulness, and vitality. Dr. Barko is delighted to be a partner at Advanced Skin Fitness, and has fulfilled her passion of helping each of her patients reach their wellness, anti-aging, and aesthetic goals.
