Review of Dr. Barnes

- in Kansas City, MO |

Too busy to care for patients. She come flying and spend two minutes and be gone. Only at the office one or two days a week and teaches the rest of the week, hard to communicate with. Father had bladder cancer for almost a year, he was never told nor was I. Reports in his file clearly state the cancer and advise to follow up, she was more concerned with his prostate saying it was enlarged just to push the new rezum procedure which failed the first time. He never recovered and died.

Review of Dr. Padmanabhan

- in Chillicothe, MO |

I can't thank Dr. P enough for what she has done for me she is an excellent doctor and knows her field very well! She changed my life completely for the better helping me be a healthier person! She repaired a hole in my bladder that another doctor had done! It was a long year and a half of living with the hole and pretty much bringing my life to a halt due to being unable to do everyday things without pain and leaking! Dr.P was able to fix my fistula and give me my life back! She is the best!!!

Review of Dr. Barnes

- in Kansas City |

I was in the exam room for almost 45 minutes before she came in. She was rushed and cold. I have been depressed about my urinary issues, to the point of tears. She spent maybe 5 minutes with me and didn’t give me time to ask questions before hurrying off. Her resident had MUCH better bedside manner. I’ve been around lots of doctors and never treated like this. She may be competent but no way would I let her do surgery on me if it comes to that. I prefer my doctors care just a little.

Review of Dr. Barnes


As a male, I was a little apprehensive about seeing a female for urinary problems. After my first visit with Dr. Barnes, I was at ease and felt the choice was right. She spends time explaining all of the options, and what the issues are that I was dealing with. She gave me several options, and let me decide what made the most sense for me. A definite 5 star doctor. I feel like I made the best choice for me, and that I am in good hands. Thank you Dr. Barnes!

I never take the time to do reviews but for the first time in years I am pain free and it's due to the surgery done by Dr. Padmanabhan. I had a similar procedure done 6 years ago but it was ineffective. I'm now 6 months post surgery and couldn't be happier! Thank You!

Review of Dr. Padmanabhan

-Kansas City, Kansas |

After my new patient experience I refused to return. Part of it was beyond her control - she didn’t know I was in my room for almost an hour - but when she did finally realize I was there she only spent about 5 minutes with me outlining basic medical advice I had already received by my primary care doctor. That was the extent of my appointment and I was told to return in 6 months. Bottom line she didn’t seem too interested in providing personalized care so I found another urologist who was.

Review of Dr. Barnes

- in Kansas City, Kansas |

I visited Dr. Barnes after a frustrating experience with another urology provider. She was prompt, courteous, approachable and listened when I spoke. The appointment was set up in a way that minimized any discomfort I might have had and she did a thorough, comprehensive exam. I appreciated how she had reviewed my medical history prior to arrival and the treatment I received felt tailored to my situation/concerns. Relieved to find such a wonderful doctor!

Worst experience of my life. Her procedure failed and she offered to do another procedure with a poor prognosis. Her treatment was not polite and she lost my trust.
