My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I always try to treat patients with respect – with consideration for their individual circumstances and experiences. I consider it my job to act as a resource and support for my patients, through positive reinforcement, discussion and education. The medical world has become quite complex and difficult to navigate and it is important to remember that we work for patients (not the other way around), that first and foremost it is important to be advocates for our patients, and that we are on the same team.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Barnes

from Dorothy in MI March 18, 2018 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

On September 23, 2017, I unfortunately fell while stepping up on the small concrete porch in front of my townhouse. My right foot did not come up as far as needed and the toe of my shoe hit the outside of the concrete sending me sprawling onto a porch chair putting all my weight on to my left particular my left knee. After I assested my physical condition, I determined that nothing… See more

I am a new patient of Dr Barnes, but in the short time I have known him I have found him to be thorough, compassionate, knowledgeable and very understanding. I wish our paths would have crossed sooner in life! GOD BLESS YOU Dr Barnes and Happy National Doctor's Day!

from Marilyn in MI March 11, 2018 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

Selecting Dr. Robert Barnes as my primary physician was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only is He knowledge in current medical issues/procedures, he has a network of specialists to refer his patients. Me being one of them.
Dr. Robert Barnes is a man of integrity. He is kind, listens to his patients, and goes way beyond in effort to make my/their life better.

from Bob in MI March 6, 2018 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

My wife Susan has A.L.S, and is no longer able to make the usual office visits. If I have a question about her health, I can call Dr. Barnes after hours or on the week-ends, which is very comforting to have this support. Also, he will make house calls if necessary! He is easy to talk to and very understanding of our situation.

from Jerry in MI March 6, 2018 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

I quickly learned my concerns were unfounded and I have been delighted with not only the unparalleled philosophy of MDVIP but now the manner in which Dr.… See more

from Terry in MI March 5, 2018 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

Dr. Barnes is the most caring, kind, interesting, knowledgeable doctor I have ever had and I've had many. He found cancer on my face and Dr. Kopitski was amazed that Dr. Barnes caught it. He's been there for me and my family whenever we needed him and spends all the time we need during Dr. visits never hurrying us along. I wouldn't switch doctors for any amount of money. He… See more

from Velette in MI March 5, 2018 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

We do so appreciate Dr. Barnes and have moved to four different locations to stay in his practice. He is knowledgable, patient, caring and accessible. After all these years we consider him part of our extended family. We would not be with MDVIP if it were not for Dr. Barnes. We wish him well . Velette and Bill S.
