      I saw Dr. Barnett at memorial when I was admitted for diverticulitis. He was wonderful. We clicked from the start. He was spot on in how he treated my condition. His wife also works by his side and she is wonderful as well. I love and trust them both.

      Dr Barnett was my husband's physician during a very critical time. He was always willing to walk the extra mile for my husband and kept me updated with all the medical info. Always took the time for both of us.
