Dr. David Barnett and his Staff are number one in my book. Dr. Barnett is a stand up guy and his Staff are equally up to the task of serving with him... He has performed Surgery twice on my old seventy nine (79) year old back in the past seven (7) years and worked miracles both times... today, I'm pain free (sciatic) and living the dream... Thanks be to Dr. David Barnett and his Staff

Terrible! My second surgery he injured a nerve. I told him I had numbness in my leg and foot. I was told it would go away in time. Well it's been years and I still have it. Now I have apathy in my right leg and have a hard time walking due to the nerve damage. There are much better doctors available.

I couldn't be happier. I'm totally pain free. His staff is excellent as well. His PA, Jennifer was excellent as well. If I had to do it all over again, no question, no hesitation, it's Dr. Barnett.

Lectured me about not having a Baylor radiologist read my MRI, complained about the East Dallas neighborhood filling up Baylor’s emergency department every night, I could go in and on about his ranting during my appt. no way would I trust this disgruntled hothead to get anywhere near my back.

Dr. Barnett is the best doctor I have ever met. He is caring, compassionate and addresses your questions thoroughly. I had sciata-like pain for 3 years in my left leg. After lumbar surgery I am now pain free. The staff is friendly and efficient. I would recommend Dr. Barnett without hesitation.

explains what he sees on MRI and radiologist notes. took all the time I needed to decide options. The fact that he is a Christian gave me peace and he came highly recommended by people he had already helped.

God sent Dr David Barnett my way while I was in severe back pain. Met with him and he explained in detail how he could fix my problem. I had full confidence he could do the job, which he did. After one week I was out of pain. Great God fearing man and great neurosurgeon. Thank you and your staff for giving me quality of life again.

I have had 2 back operations with Dr. Barnett and both have been very good experiences for me. Dr. Barnett has greatly improved my back pain and quality of life. His caring personality and straight talk made the procedures easy to understand and know what to expect from them. I had no problems with recovery. I would recommend Dr. Barnett to anyone having back problems.

Dr. Barnett is wonderful. Conservative in his approach to my lower back pain. My L4 L5 partial discectomy was a lifesaver.

Kudoes to the whole office. The appointments and operation were all proficiently and pleasantly provided. Strong communications made this so much easier. Love the results of surgery 4/2/2018 and still getting better. Thank you very much. Glad to have a good doctor for the other end of my spine as well.

I highly recommend Dr. Barnett. He is very caring and kind, while professional at all times. He carefully answered all the questions my wife and I had prior to my surgery. He made me aware of all the parts of the surgery and what I would probably be experiencing during the recovery. He is very confident and reassuring. Dr. Barnett repaired a herniated disc in my wife's neck two years ago. This year he provided a laminectomy and fusion on my lower spine to correct my spinal stenosis.
