Mrs. Barnes was quite wonderful and I felt very comfortable with her. I forgot to go over a few issues but I know the clinic is busy and some staff is on vacation and I didn't want to keep her too long. I hope to see her again. I liked her a lot and enjoyed my first time visit with her, she was very professional yet easy to talk with.
