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.

Dr. Barnes is very dedicated, caring and thorough. I know he is the best physician I have, and if I need him, he is there to help me. He is a good man and a great asset to the medical profession. I feel honored to have him as my doctor providing ways for me to be a healthy strong woman as I grow older.

I had a serious case of poison ivy and had been using over-the-counter topical ointments prior to calling Dr. Barnes' office for a more effective prescription. It was on a Friday and I knew I would not make it comfortably through the weekend. Dr. Barnes' office called a prescription into my drug store. After work on that Friday, I stopped to pick up the prescription only to be told by the pharmacist that they didn't have the prescription. I said I would call the doctor's office while I was standing there at the counter. The pharmacist said, Good luck with that .... it's Friday and it's after 5 p.m. .... all doctor's are on the golf course about this time. I pulled the MDVIP membership card out of my walIet and placed the call. Not only did the doctor's office answer, but Dr. Barnes answered the call himself. By this time, there was a long line of people waiting for their own prescription. Dr. Barnes quickly cleared up the confusion with the prescription, and the pharmacist, obviously impressed, announced for all to hear, I've never had a doctor answer his own phone after 5 p.m., and especially on a Friday! I spent the weekend comfortably recovering from poison ivy and grateful for my MDVIP experience!

I have known this man for many years and he has been my personal physician for perhaps 30 years. During a routine physical 10 years ago he discoverd a health issue that would have taken my life. He referred me to a specialist and 10 years later I am alive and well. I owe my life to John Barnes. Need I say more.

Since joining Dr. Barnes's practice (now MDVIP) four years ago I have only been to see him a very few times (knock on wood) so I don't have much to report. But I was so impressed with him that when he joined MDVIP I of course went with him. Then two weeks after joining MDVIP I needed to talk to Dr. Barnes on a Saturday so I called him on his cell phone and in twenty minutes I had all I needed to know. Wow!! The reports and phone calls from Dr. Barnes after my annual physical were superb. Also the two specialist he referred me to have been excellent. Completely pleased with my choice of physician!!!

Dr. Barnes you have always been a great Doctor but since joining MDVIP we have gotten to appreciate you even more.The 1st time we really realized it was when we called for an emergency after hours and you answered the phone, and that was not the only time either. Your encouragement and discussions regarding our last third of our life have significantly changed our health and quality of life. Your staff is just as supportive as you as was demonstrated on one occasion when they watched 2 of our grandchildren so we could get bloodwork done. It is nice to see you being able to enjoy your practice more and set such a good example for us. We are so grateful that we followed you to MDVIP and look forward to the many years to come. Thank you for everything and know you are appreciated.

Dr. Barnes is dedicated, knowledgeable, concerned and honest. He is always professional, he sets high standards of care for his patients, he is always available and willing to tend to my medical needs and issues. And to promptly secure any other associated services that I may need. My attitude about maintaining a more healthier lifestyle has grown because of his help. Dr. Barnes is exceptional and I am glad to be one of his care patients.
