For the first time in my long life, I have found a physician that I am finally comfortable with in sharing details about how I feel inside and out. Dr. Barnes has helped me to become more aware of my own decisions about my health and have learned that physical and mental health, for me, are entangled. I am a widow and wish to be as healthy as I can be so that I can live an independent life for many years. Dr. Barnes has always rooted for me, which encourages me to do better for my next visit. I am very healthy and don't have to make appointments often but when I do, I am always comforted and encouraged by Dr. Barnes. Although Dr. Barnes exudes professionalism, his sincere mannerisms and ability to breakdown lab results in a clear and simple language for me, his patient, is a gift that is not present with many Physicians and I hope to have Dr. Barnes as my Physician for years to come. Thank you, Dr. Barnes. You are not just my Physician; you have worn many hats - my counselor, cheerleader, comforter and I also feel humbled to call you ,my friend.

Thanks Dr. Barnes for everything.....but especially for sharing with so many of us the very special gifts that God has blessed you with. This thanks is also for your family that loves and supports you and is reflected in the way you care and listen to all who come to see you. Thanks also to Carolyn who is always there to greet us with a smile no matter what the reason we are there. I know that God has truly blessed with me with a wonderful doctor and friend. May God continue to hold you safe in the palm of His hand. Sincerely,

It was 1:30 am last Sunday morning when I woke to the small pimple on my chin, now not so small, causing my lower lip to swell. I decided to text my growing problem to Dr Barnes with the hope that when he got up in the would return my call. He called me back 5 minutes after I texted. He call in the prescriptions I needed to a 24 hr pharmacy. I had the drugs I needed to stop the rapidly spreading infection by 2:00 am. Dr Barnes has been my friend and my doctor for 31 years. There is a list of life's experiences, just like this one, that describe John Barne's service to his patients and community. He is truly one of Richmonds top Docs...

When we moved back to Midlothian over 20 years ago, I was fortunate to find John Barnes for my primary care physician. Although, we were both quite a bit younger, John has remained constant over the years. He cares and listens without rushing and makes it feel as we have a patient/physician partnership. I feel blessed to have John to address my primary care.

When I joined the MDVIP Program in early 2013 at the milestone age of 65, I knew the time had finally arrived for me to focus on my own health. For so many years, I had cared for all other family members, but, never me. I couldnt recall back then when I had ever had a truly meaningful physical examination, much less an annual physical. After caring for an ailing mother and helping my husband recover from a heart attack, I began to realize the importance of my own health, but didnt really know what to do and how to do it. Joining Dr. John Barnes MDVIP practice has provided me with a far better understanding of a healthy approach to life. The program membership has been an extremely valuable investment. The annual physical, various diagnostic testing, and a wellness plan just for me guided by Dr. Barnes have all attributed to my overall health. And for the first time, I feel like I have a partner in my well-being. With Dr. Barnes interest and concern, I personally feel compelled to do a better job as a patient. Thats not to say that I will always select an apple over chocolate, but, as a MDVIP Program member with Dr. Barnes as partner, I will be more responsible and focused on my own health!

I have been a patient of Dr. Barnes for many years. I do not think that there is a better doctor anywhere. He really cares about his patients!! Throughout the years I have had several situations that needed immediate attention. I always got prompt care. MDVIP policies help the patient to make healthy living choices.
