My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I grew up in Newellton, Louisiana, a small farming community in Northeast Louisiana. My mom and dad owned and operated a Western Auto store for 50 years in that community. I inherited a love for sports from my mom and dad, playing every sport available growing up. This translated into an active lifestyle as an adult. My wife and our adult children continue to run and exercise. After 39 years in general family practice, I affiliated with MDVIP to bring my lifelong passion and pursuit of wellness and fitness to the forefront for my patients. 

My MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice is built around a comprehensive annual wellness program where I work with my patients to analyze their current health and work with them to create a customized action plan on how to improve it. I also get to return to my earlier days of practicing medicine with unhurried, individualized and proactive care. I will continue to address and help treat current medical conditions and other issues that may arise. Should you need hospitalization, I utilize the hospitalist programs at both St. Francis Medical Center in Monroe and Glenwood Regional Medical Center in West Monroe. We, in the Monroe-West Monroe medical community, serve northeast Louisiana, including Ouachita and Lincoln parishes along with southeast Arkansas.

Dr. Barnes has been our doctor for over 45 years and we consider him a friend as well. In that time we’ve never had any issues with getting an appointment or anything else. Now he’s even more available and he answers calls or text personally even on weekends. He’s our doctor for life and we hope he never retires!

from Mary in LA January 23, 2024 for David L. Barnes, MD

When I was attending graduate school at N.L.U. in Monroe, I became ill. I called my mama in my hometown of Newellton to know what to do. She told me that someone from Newellton had just opened a medical practice in West Monroe and that I should see him. It was Dr. David Barnes. He was a few years older than I, but I knew him well because our families belonged to the same church and his mama… See more

Dr Barnes’ promptness, efficiency, & knowledge goes above and beyond the call of duty! Anytime my husband or I have contacted him for any issues, he replies & takes care of it immediately! I recently had a question about a test I’d like to have done soon, so I texted him to ask about it even though it was after hours because I wasn’t sure when I could have the test done due to going… See more
