I got a diagnosis on Thursday evening that I needed my gallbladder out and was referred to Dr Barnes by my gastroenterologist. I called Friday morning to schedule an appointment and they squeezed me in that morning. Dr Barnes saw me and I was scheduled for surgery that next Monday. Had to make 2 on-call calls to him after hours and he was very understanding and professional. Great surgeon that cares and wants you to feel better as soon as possible!!
in Parker, CO |
Dr Barnes a very knowledgeable and capable surgeon. He was very informative about my surgery. After the surgery he visited every day to check on my progress. Office follow ups were great.
in Highlands Ranch, CO |
I have honestly never met a more caring and professional doctor. Dr. Barnes and his staff were easy to work with and very accommodating. They helped me schedule multiple tests and appointments quickly and efficiently. Even with Dr. Barnes' demanding schedule, I was able to see him when needed for pre-op and post-op visits. I am very happy with my experience and I highly recommend Dr. Barnes!

This is a professional who knows his stuff. I felt 100% confident in his experience to fix my problem. I hope to not have many or any more surgeries but if I must I will only see Dr. Barnes. It was an oddly pleasant experience.

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.

in Parker, CO |
