Ratings for Dr. Florence C. Barnett
Ive seen Dr Barnett for many years now due to a horrific MVA & other medical issues. She literally saved my life as I was days to a week away from actually dying when another Dr dropped the ball. I’ve had both a lumbar & cervicle fusions along with a couple other surgeries. I’m not a typical patient, if natural progression of things go one way, my body goes the other. She has always treated me with respect & empathy. Her staff also always treats me with respect & never have I left Dr Barnett or the office feeling I wasn’t heard or taken care of with the best coarse of treatment. I highly recommend this Dr and her God given talent as a Neurosurgeon and wonderful person.
Dr. Barnett performed a spinal fusion on my cervical spine. I was one of her youngest patients and most severe. She could have scared me with the severity of my situation, but instead was calm, patient, and thorough in explaining what was happening and what needed to happen. She does not tip toe around the reality of the situation, which I appreciate. I am going to have my second surgery with her soon, and would not trust anyone else with the job! While her punctuality score was lower than the others, it is because she spends time with each of her patients to ensure they understand their options and next steps. I value that she respects her patients enough to talk to them, rather than at them.
She has changed my life. Dr Barnett shows empathy and has the Best bedside manner. She gets straight to the point and bottom of an issue. I know what I'm talking about. I've had over 35 surgeries & procedures in my life. I wish all my Doctors were like her.
DR. BARNETT IS THE FIRST DR. I HAVE TRULY TRUSTED WITH MY LIFE. I HAD NO QUALMS WHEN SHE TOLD ME THAT IF SHE DIDN'T DO MY NECK SURGERY FIRST THEN I WOULD BE PARALYSED FROM MY NECK DOWN. I WENT IN FOR LOWER BACK PROBLEMS. AFTER THE NECK, I WAITED 3 MONTHS AND HAD MY BACK DONE. THIS WAS 5 YRS AGO. NOW I FIND I NEED MORE SURGERY. I HAVE ALSO CHANGED INSURANCES AND I'M GLAD TO SAY MY NEW INSURANCE COVERS HER CARE. CAN'T WAIT TO BE PAIN FREE AGAIN.
Dr. Barnett took me on as a patient to do a revision of a Spinal Cord Stimulator that my pain clinic and then another neurosurgeon 'could not place properly'. she was honest, giving me a 25% chance of making a different model work. She is different in that she actually woke me during the procedure to see if I was getting coverage. I wasn't, so she removed it. I believe she does a lot of revision other neurosurgeons can't repair or won't touch. She is very honest, which I loved. Her staff is really great also.
My orthopedic doctor referred me to Dr Barnett, said she was the best around (better than other neurosureons in his own practice). My L5 disk had herniated and caused numbness down my leg/foot. I had talked to about 6 or more nurses around the office and the hospital and they all said she is awesome. I found her to be very polite, friendly, and thorough in her work. I have been very pleased with her office staff as well. No complaints at all. She even commented that she's worked with one of my other doctors at the Capitol building on important issues. I would highly recommend her.
