Jake Barnard, DO

Education: Arizona State University

Clinic: Tempe

Growing up, all I wanted to do was play ball. All through school I played football, baseball, and basketball. I still really enjoy sports and play any time I have a chance.

When I went to ASU, I ended up working at a pediatric clinic. That’s when I really got interested in medicine. I realized how much I enjoyed helping people feel better. Before coming to Mountain Park, I was a Pediatrician in the Army for three years. I love the diversity of Mountain Park and the goals the organization aims to reach.

I have been married to my best friend for 13 years, and we have four children—three girls and one boy. I met my wife when we were both attending Mesa Community College. Family is important to me. We really enjoy just being together. We try to hike and play sports as much as we can. Something people may not know about me is that I lived in Jordan for five months during my time in the Army. The people in Jordan were so awesome and welcoming.
