Give this physician the best rating possible! I was a patient of Dr. Barnes when he practiced in Rockford, Ill. and I was terribly disappointed when he left the state to practice in Colorado. He is a top-rated surgeon and I've never met a doctor who showed more compassion for the anxiety of patients facing surgery than this man. He is truly a gift to the profession.
