What a horrible experience at this office! I showed up to the office, had all registration already complete and I was told to sit down. Minutes later I was told to reschedule and couldn't be seen that day. I was told my appointment was at 2:30, but the receptionist there said it was 2 and that I was 40 minutes late. I have an injured wrist. They wanted me to reschedule for a week later. Absolutely cold-hearted staff. Didn't care about my injury whatsoever. I will never go back there again!

Dr. Barnes took care of my 15 year old son who broke his collar bone playing lacrosse. He always took the time to answer questions, and made my son feel at ease at each visit. His office staff is wonderful and we never had to wait more than fifteen minutes for our appointments. I would highly recommend Dr. Barnes for a sports injury.

Made an appointment with Doctor for second opinion and Surgery consul. This Doctor ordered an ultrasound and stated if meniscus tears were present he would do arthroscopic surgery on my knee. Saw him a week later with evidence of tears and he refused to do the surgery because of my cardic history which he was fully aware of on first visit. He also told my wife that he didn't want to have to tell her"your husband is dead". Totally unprofessional approach and wasted my time.
