This office billed my insurance for a procedure that I never had, a Hepatitis C screening. When I disputed it, they told me that I had the procedure. I was referred to this doctor from my PCP regarding my colon...NOT hepatitis!!! Why would I have a screening when I didn't know anything about it...more

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.
