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 Ruth and Shih-Chen in MI March 17, 2020 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

In the midst of this virus scare, my 84 year old husband had a fall. Between phone calls, photos sent by phone of his injuries, and an office visit where Dr. Barnes personally shepherded us through a busy lab and X-ray facility, we were elated and relieved to find that he had no fracture or break from this fall. Now we are safely at home, having been coached in good wound care techniques… See more

I am convinced, had it not been for Dr. Robert Barnes, you would not be reading this little note from me. I recently had open heart surgery and his follow up care and referral and attention to my post surgery is beyond any words I am capable of making. Thank you , thank you, thank you for sharing your expertise and gifts and time Dr. Barnes

from Fabiola in MI March 12, 2020 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

Last June I arrived in Malta on the 24th of the month. I was in great pain and immediately went to a clinic where I luckily met a ver wonderful Orthopaedic physician, After x-rays, I was diagnosed with a lumbar fracture. I was put in a back brace, a candle brace, I had to wait a whole day agonizing in pain, and finally after a lot of bickering and talking about the orthopedic doctor that he… See more

Dr. Barnes is always available when I have a problem whether it is big or little. He has much compassion and knowledge. I hope he maintains his practice for a long time.

from Jan in MI March 11, 2020 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

My father came down ill, and at 95 years of age getting him into a car and getting him out to see the doctor was daunting -if not an impossibility. Dr Barnes made arrangements and drove out to see my father at my house, and gave him the medical treatment he needed. Dr. Barnes always goes beyond the call of duty! He is simply the best!!!

from Velette in MI March 10, 2020 for Robert C. Barnes, DO

I went to Dr. Barnes office because I was having difficulty breathing with any exertion. This was a continuing problem at that time. When I explained what was going on he calmly said I could not go home but must go straight to the hospital. I protested because I had other plans for the day. Dr. Barnes left the room and when he returned he informed me that my daughter would pick me up and… See more

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!
