Visiting Dr Barnes is like a visit with family or friends. Prompt and professional in every way. Dr. Barnes knows her stuff, educates well and takes as much time as necessary. I will be a patient as long as she is a doctor. My grandson gets very angry with me if I visit without him. I have had severe problems and know I am in the best hands.

Dr. Barnes was very kind, caring, and professional. It took some time to see her but I can understand why as she was spot on with her diagnosis, her treatment plan. I was feeling better in weeks with her advice. I thought I was going to need surgery but she helped me feel better without it.

I went in to see Dr. Barns, she conducted several x-rays on my foot and ankle. I have had extensive surgeries done on my ankle and foot. Through most of the exam I felt I was being well taken care of. She began to talk to me about the shoes she sells in her office. Since I am doubly insured she didn?t feel there would be any issue with my insurance coverage. My insurance turned it down. I asked what the next step would be and was told there was told there was nothing nothing more she could do!
