    Excellent professional service. Provided me with advice on how to improve mobility and reduce current pain experienced in my knees. Also gave assurance that the arthritis was manageable and did not require surgical intervention. I would have no hesitation in seeing Mr Barnes in the future if my condition deteriorates

    Explanation (5/5)
    Mr Barnes is a dedicated professional. I have recently reluctantly had a new knee.Many concerns I had were dealt with by Mr Barnes before admission. His care during the op and the post op treatment some out of hours is commendable and I would not have been where I am today with out his help and support. I will be having my second one done very shortly under his care.
