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.

Dr. Barnes is competent and caring. He goes out of his way to help his patients. As an example, I had extreme dizziness one morning. I called him and his schedule was such that he actually paid me a house visit! I can't remember anyone saying that their doctor did that for them. I can always count on him to offer sage advice. My wife and I feel lucky to have him as our physician.… See more
