He is aswsome. He has replaced my left knee twice ( I fell and messed the first one up). His dedication is outstanding. He spends as much time with you as you need him to. I would highly recommend him.
in Hixson, TN |
Thoroughness of evaluation. Surgical Skill and explanation to the patient and family. Ease of speaking with him and his assistants (who are all very knowledgeable and nice). After care of complicated and unusual total knee replacement.
in Cleveland, TN |
Dr. Barnard has always been thoughtful and thorough at my appointments. If I had a complaint, its that I usually have to wait an hour before getting in the back (not as big an issue in the Hixson office, but that is further out of my way.) His staff is great, too.
