My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

"Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane." – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. That statement has remained with me most of my college and medical school career and helped to motivate me to become the physician I am today. As an African-American physician, I aim to provide an excellent healthcare experience to patients of all races, genders and cultural backgrounds. 

Family medicine has been rewarding because I believe it is the ideal area of medicine to make a difference in all stages of life. My goal has always been to listen, teach and provide personalized healthcare to improve the health and wellness of my patients and their families. It is important that I empower my patients to take charge of their health and serve as their coach and supporter as we go through the life long journey together. 

I provide care to patients in Delaware and I am a member of the medical staff at Bayhealth, both Kent and Milford campuses. My practice cares for pediatric, adolescents, adults and geriatric patients. I perform minor office procedures, offer acute care, women’s health, chronic care disease management and assist families with end of life decisions. I also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices. As an osteopathic physician, I continue to use Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy as adjunctive therapy to diagnose, treat and prevent illness and injury. 

As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, my focus is on spending time with patients and developing strong relationships to adapt my care to the unique needs of patients and communities using evidence-based medicine to benefit and promote good health.  I welcome you to become a member of my healthcare family. Let’s work together to make a better you!  

About the Practice/Practice News

Telemedicine Option: I am also using telemedicine visits to stay connected with my patients when they are unable to see me in the office. It is easy to do, and we have maintained our momentum with preventive health goals and chronic care during difficult times.

Over 18 years I traveled for my job. Made it a habit over those years to always move my legs and ankles every flight, and walked through many small and large airports. After retirement I still traveled as my youngest son lived out west. In February, 2021 I flew a 3 segment flight to California and back. Several weeks had passed since that flight, and I noticed having difficulty with shortness… See more

I met Dr. Cedric Barnes over 20 years ago when I relocated and had to choose a new primary care physician. I cannot tell you how fortunate I was in making the choice to join his practice so long ago.

from Robert in DE March 16, 2020 for Cedric T. Barnes, DO

Dr. Barnes been my doctor since 2007, that's the length of time I've lived in Delaware. He's a great doctor and is very concerned about my health. When he switched over to MDVIP, I scared I was going to have to change doctors. Thank God I didn't have to. I don't look at Dr. Barnes as being just a doctor, he's also a friend.

from Linda in DE March 12, 2020 for Cedric T. Barnes, DO

I have so appreciated my relationship with Dr. Cedric Barnes. He listens to me, is supportive and provides quality care. He has taken care of me for 17 years. The switch to MDVIP has only improved his practice and enhanced the relationship. Can't imagine having any other doctor!
