By all accounts, Dr Barnes s an excellent rheumatologist. However, Health Grades has listed her in their internal medicine category. Most physicians that are certified in internal medicine are primary care physician. But Dr Barnes doesn't accept patients for primary care. Health Grades should list Dr Barnes only under Rheumatology.

Outstanding MD in all ways.

I would have loved to see Dr Barnes. However, after my Doctor recommended me to her, I never received a call to schedule an appt. I then followed up with the office staff and got my head ripped off by her very rude staff. I was told "we will review your doctor's notes and let you know if she will take you". I was appalled at how this woman ripped into me. Needless to say, I had my Dr recommend another Dr. Hopefully Dr Barnes will find out that her office staff has a rude reputation.

I am a newer patient and find Dr Barnes to be very thorough and caring. She digs deep to find the cause of issues and works to resolve. She explained my diagnosis and gave me information to read as I have never heard of it before.

Dr. Barnes was very thorough getting my medical history correct. She gave me options for my treatment and ordered blood work to be sure I had no hidden problems.

Dr. Barnes has been treating me for RA since 2007. I was diagnosed with Fibro a couple of years later and after a long, emotional and painful struggle, I filed for and obtained SS disability. This doctor made sure I had every supportive care possible and she has worked tirelessly to find a medication to manage my RA. We finally struck gold with xeljanz with methotrexate, Cymbalta for Fibro, and nucynta for pain. Dr. Barnes has professionally, ethically, and thoroughly managed my care for 9 years
