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.
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
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!

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Barnes
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!
I have known Dr. Barnes for many years, as he initially rented an office in my husbands medical building. Prior to his joining MDVIP he treated us with expert care and this care has continued since he joined MDVIP.

I’ve only been a patient if Dr. Barnes since July of 2019, but his service and team have been exceptional! He is pro active and very professional with the many health problems I’ve had lately. From my hiv positive to pneumonia and the flu. He is right on!!! He gets an A+ in my book! Thank you MDVIP for having such wonderful professionals on your team!
Dr. Barnes has been with my family for over 10 years. His compassion for his patients are genuine and sincere. Not to mention he has a funny side. He was a phone call away when my husband went through colon cancer twice. He is truly family and we are so blessed to have him as our Doctor. Blessing to him and his family.
