Twice while in hospital, following back surgery, I was accused by Dr. Barnett that the only reason I came back to be admitted was to get more on that with his finger pointing to my medication pump. The first time it happened I overlooked it, but the second time his action almost killed me. I will he WAS NOT my primary MD on the case, Dr. Shad Bidawalla was. By not listening to my complaints there was a massive infection in my back. I had surgery & spent the summer at MCP.

Prior to the lamenectomies Dr Barnett performed on me I hadn't felt my toes in 2 1/2 years!! I felt my toes at the absolute instant I awaken for surgery!!!

Dr. Barnett is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. His office staff are polite and professional. My medical care was handled in a professional and caring manner from my first office visit through my last post-op visit. I would highly recommend Dr. Barnett to others.

I am so thankful that I went to Dr. Barnett. He looked at my MRI and told me exactly what I needed to have done. He did a laminectomy on me for spinal stenosis to relieve pinched nerves. It was instant relief. So thankful that I found him and trusted him with my care.

The Dr. is fine but the office staff needs help in customer service.

It has been 9 months since my 82 y.o. dad?s back surgery. He had stenosis at L4-L5 and underwent a fusion. Before his surgery, he was heading toward needing a wheel chair. Three months after his surgery, my dad was back to his usual daily exercise program which consists of lifting weights, walking, and anything else he wants to do. He has returned to his usual activities such as hunting and family events. Dr. Barnett is a sincere and caring physician who I highly recommend.

Dr. Barnett's Care Philosophy

As a Neurosurgeon, I understand the stress and frustrations of patients with neurological or spine conditions and strive to provide them with individualized treatments that address their concerns and meet their needs. During a visit, patients should expect to be thoroughly counseled regarding the natural course of their condition and the risks and benefits of the options that are available to them in straightforward terms.
