First impression; very nice, professional, caring. I really like this guy, feel very comfortable with him and all his staff are equally nice. Look forward to having Dr. Barnes do my surgery. Went through a small battle with Cigna, but Dr. Barnes did a peer to peer review and I got approved. I am so happy. Again, very nice man who takes the time to talk to you where you don't feel like a number, He is to the point and tells you what you need to know. I like his style!

One of the best decisions I have made in my life. Dr. Barnes was recommended by many nurses my wife works with, she is also a nurse, at Baylor Hospital Ft Worth. Dr. Barnes is straight-forward, unpretentious, down-to-earth, and compassionate. I had my surgery 12/2010 and weighed 337 lbs then I reduced my weight to 220 lbs 5/2011. I have my life back and my weight fluctuates +/- 10 lbs. I no longer require any regular medication for blood pressure or cholesterol. 2 years plus with normal healthy check ups. The aftercare provided will keep you on track and the staff is always available for questions and concerns.

I like that he was straight-forward with all his answers and was very professional. He made me feel like I was the only patient he had every time I had to visit him. The day of my surgery, the tech in the pre-op room told me, "you have the best doctor." She was right! Dr. Barnes did a great job, I felt wonderful and 4 years later, I still feel wonderful.

If you want a trusting, competent doctor, who knows what he is doing, and does it well, go to Dr. Barnes. You will be glad you did.

I absolutely love Dr. Barnes. When you have your first office visit with him, he's a little intimidating. But over time, I realized that he's just a straight forward and blunt person. He's gonna tell you how it is whether you want to hear it or not. Now that I've gotten to know him better, he's an absolutely wonderful man. He genuinely cares about his patients and wants them to succeed. His office staff is the greatest staff I've ever met. They are always nice and polite and willing to help you in any way. The program in his office is great. Everyone meets with a dietician and a psychiatrist. After surgery, you will continue to attend classes with both of these people who will teach you what to expect in the upcoming weeks. They are very informative and caring.

Overall I would rate this office a 10 (on a scale from 1 to 10). If they can put up with my moodiness and continue to be so nice, they are the greatest in my book.

Dr. Barnes is a great doctor. I honestly can't think of a negative thing to say about him. I had complete trust in him for my surgery, and his bedside manner is good as well. Of course, had I not had a \"peace\" about having the surgery, I wouldn't have. He asnwered all of my questions about the surgery. I was a little nervous about getting STAFF infection...my husband did last year at another hospital (back surgery).My life was on the line, and I had to believe that all would be well for my own mental well-being. I've had 2 strokes in the past (37 years old), so he was very straight forward about the risks of surgery. He was very adament about the liquid diet before the surgery, as well as the liquid diet after the surgery. The \"before\" diet was VERY HARD, but I did it perfectly. I'm now eating solid foods, and haven't been sick at all. Dr. Barnes has also talked with me about the aftercare program, and I feel totally comfortable calling the office with any questions that I might have. He encourages you to call if you have a question. I'm looking forward to going to the classes as well.
