Dr Barnes came into his office after hours to take care of my wife’s distress. Could not express our appreciation enough for his extra “after hours” service. Thank you Dr Barnes!

10/29/2018

I'm glad I was able to continue with Dr. Barnes after Dr. Sullivan's retirement. He has taken good care of my sight and that of my wife's.

10/29/2018

Dr. Barnes has been my doctor for 10 years and have never had and problems with him.

11/04/2018

My husband had Dr. Barnes and we were both very happy with him and that is why I specifically asked for Dr. Barnes for my surgery.

10/22/2018

Dr. Barnes seemed almost like my condition was below his expertise. He did interrupt me from time to time when I was trying to explain my condition. He sort of seemed like my condition wasn't important enough for him. He was very knowledgeable and I trust his advice but it certainly was not a friendly experience.

10/15/2018

I Am very satisfied with Dr Barnes services

The doctor was very rude and acted like he was hiding something that he wanted to say to me but wouldn't. I don't know what the problem was but he acted like I was annoying? Not my best experience

07/24/2018

A friendly professional who makes certain the patient has all the information they need to make an informed decisions about embarking on cataract surgery. He is a medical doctor demanding the most of himself to do the best for his patient.

04/23/2018

I think Dr Barnes is a good dr....he has changed since I first met him. I have a disability and wonder if maybe he just didn't know how to handle it..but

04/23/2018

Dr. seemed to be in a hurry and didn’t give a chance to ask what if’s. The pre dr. process of tests with the techs was excellent, just wished we would have had the chance to ask a couple more questions and if we could continue our eye care through this office.

04/23/2018

Have always admired Dr. Barnes. His professionalism is top of the line and his caring and knowledge of his profession is impeccable.

04/24/2018

Wonderfully skilled doctor. Thank you.

04/17/2018

I like Dr. Barnes. He was pretty cool, and extremely confident. He was very smooth. The only thing I'd have changed, is to have spent more time talking to him about everything. Although, I can tell he is a very busy dude with a lot of patients to see so I understand his brevity. He dialed me in with great efficiency, and I'm thankful for his help. Just would have been cool to learn more about the small details of everything. Like... the eye code talk and stuff he was communicating with the girl who writes down on the chart. Oh well, that's the life of a good doc I guess. See the patient, dial em in, and cruise onward! Haha great guy, and he knows what hes doing.

04/03/2018

Dr. Barnes is very caring He is just wonderful!

03/26/2018

I was referred to Dr. Barnes by my cardiologist and have the utmost trust in him. He performed cataract surgery on my father and it went better than expected.

02/05/2018

This was my first time with Dr. Barnes and I really liked him. He was very forthcoming and honest. I'd recommend him and hope to see him again.

01/30/2018

I went to see Dr. Barnes for what I thought would end up being something along the lines of an allergy. Turns out that it was Narrow Angle Closure Glaucoma. Dr. Barnes sent me to see his associate in Lansing, Dr. You. Didn't love the drive, but appreciated that Dr. Barnes wanted me to be seen by Dr. You for her opinion on the best course of action. The doctors decided that the best approach for now was the laser and Dr. Barnes did that in Mt. Pleasant. It went exceedingly well and my check up showed good pressures in both eyes. Everyone at LO Eye, both Mt. Pleasant and Lansing are caring and kind. I hardly felt like it was a medical appointment! Thank you all so much for saving my eye sight.

01/22/2018

He was very abrupt, didn't let me finish telling him what concerned me. Said patients and doctors talk differently and cleaned his ear with a q-tip while telling me his results. Gross, Rude, totally inappropriate and unprofessional.

01/16/2018

I was thinking of going down state to have my eye surgery. Then I found L.O. Eye Care and Dr. Barnes. I could not have been happier as Dr. Barnes is an excellent Dr. He is such a caring, kind Dr. as is his staff. My eye surgery went excellent and its amazing how well I can see without glasses. Thank you Dr. Barnes!

01/18/2018

This was a very positive experience. Dr. Barnes was very clear explaining the procedure and about surgery.

09/06/2017

Did not spend a whole lot of time with doctor... felt rushed. So while he and staff were friendly I did not get a chance to get to know them. Doctor's medical techniques were okay (problem with eye was resolved). If needed I would go back, but as for recommending Doctor I would just say I saw him and he was okay.

09/08/2017
