Specialties

Dr. Maurice C Barnes Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Funny, Intelligent....a good listener

Dr. Barnes has a wonderful dry sense of humor that takes the bite out of any kind of situation. He is easy and unassuming...he listens and asks questions. I've seen him several times and he pulled me out of a very dark place.

The doctor you want!

I am eager to say that Dr. Barnes (still cannot call him Maurice...too disrespectful) is the best Gastro guy I have found. The most important thing is that he listens to his patiences with thoughtful attention. If he was not my doctor, i would still be suffering with Colitis and have no treatment options! his bedside manner is tops and he really gets to know his pateinces. He is No. 1 in my book!

I waited 3 hours to see Dr Barnes, only to have to wait another 30 minutes in my room. I have been to see Dr Barnes a few times, and this is what you can expect EVERY time you go in. Not to mention the doctor is slow, and does not do a very good job explaining things to you, and his staff is AWFUL. My advice to anyone who has an appointment with him-find another doctor
