Dr. Gary Barber


Emergency Physician

I’ve always been wired for Emergency Medicine since starting out as an ER Tech and EMT. Growing up moving around with the Army, I’m a transplant Texan starting in El Paso with high school where I met my wife.  After completing my undergraduate education and time as a wrestler at The University of Oklahoma, I worked in El Paso as an ER Tech leading up to medical school at University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA).  We relocated to Albuquerque for residency training in Emergency Medicine at University of New Mexico before returning to San Antonio to work at San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC) while Active Duty with the US Air Force.

I had deployment tours to Bagram, Afghanistan and most recently led a Tactical Critical Care Evacuation Team (TCCET) in NW Africa.  Currently, I’m the physician for the Critical Care Air Transport Team (CCATT) with the US Air Force Reserves out of Lackland AFB.  With continued interests in medical education, emergency ultrasound, and prehospital care I am part-time faculty at UTHSCSA working at University Hospital with residents and medical students.  It’s an honor to be a part of my local community in Leon Springs and San Antonio volunteering as a Cub Scout Leader, assistant coach for CYO Sports, church activities, and part of the Aue Elementary School family.
