An excellent doctor with caring and patience. He explained my husband's condition in details and also left us hope that one day my husband's vision could be better after the oil is removed. After so many unsuccessful surgeries, I think as patients, we want to learn not only the facts, but the hope even though a small hope. Thank you Dr. Barnard for your understanding!

Dr. Barnard and staff, from the front desk to all the assistants are top notch, wonderful , dedicated people. My husband is a patient of Dr. Barnards and was very frightened to learn that he has macular degeneration but with the first visit Dr. Barnard put him at ease and explained the treatment and his best expectations of the treatment. He's doing very well and trusts Dr. Barnard 1000 %.

Dr Barnard is professional, compassionate, and thorough. He has performed one emergency retina surgery, and a follow up surgery to remove scar tissue on my right eye. He informed me every step of the way, and of course I was freaking out thinking of having someone poking around in my eye. He was very reassuring and made me feel that all would be ok, and it was. He also performed a procedure on my husband and he feels the same way about Dr. Barnard. His staff is also has the same qualities.

Dr. Barnard.....although quiet this man is good, very good. I am on vacation in rural North Carolina and had to go to another Doctor for my wet mac. degeneration condition, and what a difference. Severe stinging in the eye for hours later, a bloody eye, etc., etc. This never happened after treatments with Dr. Barnard. Everyone had told me that he was good and the best individual for this condition, and today proved it to me, with no doubt. Highly recommended.. I.S.K.Reeves V

Recently I found out that I had macular edema brought on by diabetes. I was referred to the Florida Retina Institute and was seen by Dr Thomas Barnard. I found him to be the type of doctor I prefer, relaxed, and friendly, but. direct. He was able to show me images of the damage and clearly explained my condition and consequences. Sucessful laser surgery was performed two days later. Cataract surgery may be necessary a few years down the road and this is the doctor I intend to use.

I began visiting Dr. Barnard about two and half years ago for retinopathy in both eyes. He has taken great care to properly assess my condition and make suggestion as how to treat it. Eyes are so very important and the care given is critical to maintaining good eye sight. Having said that, trust is of paramount importance. And I trust Dr. Barnard. He and his staff are professional and caring and I know I am getting excellent care. And I highly recommend him,

I was an emergency referal and got an appointment within 3 days. Dr Bernard examined me and ordered further tests which were done promptly and in a highly professional manner. The diagnosis was made and treatment started. I was very impressed by Dr Bernard and his staff.

Dr.Barnard and his staff have have a very efficient and well organized operation. Dr. Barnard knew that I am a physician, and I think he gave me more information and explanation about my problem than I think the average patient receives. This was much appreciated. I was very impressed with Dr. Barnard's staff, especially Mike. It was a fine experience.

This was my first visit to the office and Dr. Barnard was so kind and put me at ease. He explained a very serious situation in easy to understand terms and made me feel I was at the right place with the right person to get the help I needed. The whole staff - his team was outstanding. I am so very happy my doctor referred me to Dr. Barnard. Very very pleased with him and have full trust going forward with my treatment.

I'm a new patient and was pleasantly surprised with the staff and Dr. Bernard. Came for appointment on wrong date and they were still able and willing to fit me in and they didn't seem to be put out in the least. My eyesight is very important to me and obviously to Dr. Bernard and the Titusville Staff. Cynthia .

A handful of years ago, I had a very serious retina detachment at the age of 50. Dr. Barnard was by my side the entire way, as I went through 6 retina repairs, a lens implant, and subsequently a cornea transplant. He is a very skilled surgeon, and very reassuring, always doing his best to improve the vision of each and every patient he sees. After several years, I still go back for check ups and Dr. Barnard is always happy to consult on my vision. The staff is great too!!
