I have suffered lower back pain and sciatica for years. Dr Barnett gives me injections that relieve this pain. I can go about my life instead of concentrating on pain. His experience and expertise have helped so many people live with out pain.

Helps you to understand what is the real cause of your pain. Gives you an honest opinion of what the options are and what kind of outcome to expect. Does not talk over your head and has a sincere desire to do what he can to improve your quality of life. You can see his passion to teach you about your body, you will leave smarter than when you arrived. The front office staff and O.R. staff are caring and clearly enjoy there job's.

Dr. Barnett's office staff are rude and unprofessional. They told my father who made a mistake with his appointment (as the elderly and those in pain often do) that they would NEVER reschedule him. Maybe we'll call you tomorrow if the doctor and the office manager agree. What? Believe the other reviewers who mention this as it is absolutely true. Please choose another provider as the character of his office staff is a reflection of Dr. Barnett's professional judgement. RUDE!
I'm very sorry there was a problem with that office. I am not affiliated with it any longer. I am in Solo practice in same building in suite 500. I only have my original long term staff and family working with me now. Hope that helps. All patients are called before visit to remind them of their appointment.
