I sought a 2nd opinion (cancer), and saw Dr Barnes. He is a national treasure. I felt terrible emotionally - he put me at ease, said we would treat this and let's get moving. Within two weeks, Dr Barnes had other tests in motion and plan together. In that time, the first dr still hadn't followed up with me. I highly recommend Dr Barnes! His staff is great - they have kept in touch with me - the support is amazing.

Dr. Barnes was very good and straight forward when my mother was going through ovarian cancer. I would recommend him to every body. Also his assistance Joann P was also very helpful to my mothers needs as well. Although my mother has past I will never forget them. The Lombardi Cancer Center is a A plus in my book. Thanks for all your help.
