The office was efficient and there was very little downtown waiting to be seen. Dr. Barnard answered all of my questions.

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 HAVE BEEN SEEING YES SEEING DR. BARNARD FOR DIABETIC EYE CARE FOR MANY YEARS AND I DO BELIEVE THAT I MAY HAVE LOSS MY SIGHT WITHOUT HIS CARE. MANY THANKS !!!!
in Titusville, FL |
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 .
in Punta Gorda, FL |
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!!
in Lake Mary Florida |
I had a detached Retina. Dr Barnard and his staff made my operation and recovery an absolute success. I could not recommend a Doctor/Surgeon higher.
