Wonderful, kind and a Dr. who actually listens to you and answers any questions you have without rushing you out the door. I also went home with printed information on my procedure and what to expect. I wish Dr. Barnes was a PCP also.
Dr. Barnes was told twice that my 84 mother's previous gastroenterologist had warned that she had so much esophageal scar tissue and any stretching would have to be done very gradually. After her procedure, he told the family that he had had to crack the rings around the esophagus to open it fully. At the time, that sounded extreme, but at the time she seemed fine and was discharged. Later that night, she began bleeding profusely and was admitted to the ICU, requiring 13 units of blood.
