I had my first colonoscopy last Monday. Dr. Barnett and the staff at Granite Peaks were awesome. Ann, my nurse, and Amy, my anesthetist, were both very kind, friendly, and courteous. GP was very efficient and worked as a well-oiled machine, yet, they were still very personable and caring. That wasn't just my own experience either, I noticed that as each patient was admitted, he/she was greeted warmly by name, by a nurse who introduced herself, and assured that she would be his/her nurse during their visit. I really appreciated their professionalism and bedside manners. For a procedure that can leave one feeling exposed and vulnerable, they not only allow one to keep one's socks on, but they also provided warmed blankets. After being wheeled into the procedure room, Dr. Barnett introduced himself with a friendly greeting and reassured me. Afterwards, he clearly explained to me the results, tests, and the way forward. I really appreciated the caring check-up call the next day as well.

3rd time in 11 years I have had both endoscopy & colonoscopy procedures performed by Dr Barnett. Great bedside manner, communication and overall professionalism! Drove 5 hours from GJ because I have so much confidence in him! Came very highly recommended from my U of U primary care physician of 25 years.
