Dr. Barnes is an exceptional doctor. He is so precise and informs you about everything that he does. You couldn’t hope for a more concerned doctor. I Love Him!!!!


Dr Barnes was informative and very detailed before the surgery. The visits after surgery have been detailed and concerned w/my well being. This last visit, I got a bit of a butt chewing but needed it to get me back on the program.
