Dr. Barres has been my doctor for over 20 years now. She is amazing. I trust her explicitly! She is very knowledgeable as explains everything in detail. What I love most about her is she cares so much. I have moved but still travel 1.45 hours to keep her as my primary. I highly recommend her. We are lucky to have her!

Dr. Carmen Barres is always concerned about her patients and works very hard to assist in their healthcare needs. She has been my doctor many years and no matter what she has advised me it was always for my best health whether it was good or bad news. I have not had many doctors as caring and professional as she is. Both myself and husband are patients and I have noticed that she has a passion for her patients health and well being Awesome doctor who provides amazing healthcare. Charmaine James

I, personally as a man, would have been very reluctant to have a female as my personal Physcian. However, my wife scheduled an appointment with Dr Barres, and after seeing the care she gave to my wife quickly changed my mind. She is through and is concerned with her patients total health. She is NOW my personal physcian!

I have found Dr. Barres to be extremely professional; she is medically knowledgeable and patient. In addition, she is highly organized, focused, and perseverant. She always answers my questions and explains issues with me so that I understand what's going on with my health. I have been seeing her for over ten years and have followed her from LaBelle to Ft. Myers. I highly recommend her and have encouraged family and friends to see her, as well.
