I had a broken nose that was repaired surgically in my home toen and had a planned vacation the next week after surgery. I had consulted with my surgeon and he stated that another doctor could remove my splint if they were willing. Dr. Barns graciously took on the task and did a wonderful job! The front staff worked hard to gather my records and get me in in a timely fashion. Thank you all!

Do no go to this doctor. After doing quite a bit of research I attempted to explain an issue I am having with my rhematoid arthritis and it's effect on my inner ear. He had no interest in listened to what I had to say or researching it further for me. He dismissed what I attempted to discuss and walked out in the middle of my session. It seems the only thing he is interested in is selling hearing aids. He is an unintelligent, lazy, and inconsiderate man.

Dr. Barns is amazing. He actually sits down with you and listens to your concerns. Then comes up with a treatment plan and really explains himself and the logic behind his plan. He communicates very well with my primary physician and I wouldn't go anywhere else. His staff is so friendly and his nurse Shawn is top notch. Couldn't ask for a better team.
