Ft Smith, AR |
Dr. Barnes was wonderful with my mother in her last days of care at the hospice in-patient care. He had warm and helpful information at her bedside to her and the family.

You have to give a star or I wouldn't have given any!! This was the most hateful man during the most scary time of my life! Not allowed to ask any questions, no he doesn't want to be questioned. Was told I had Multiple Myeloma, and needed a bone marrow transplant and wasn't even allowed to know...more
