“Dr. Barnett is in my opinion an outstanding neurosurgeon. I’ve been a health-care provider myself for over 30 years. After working in the industry for that long, you develop a keen eye for medical staff who “live the mission” and those who don’t.

I researched possible physicians for my disk-replacement surgery for several weeks prior to deciding what to do. Dr. Barnett’s patient outcomes and his skill sets made it pretty clear after doing my homework that he would be an excellent choice for the complex spinal surgery I needed. After talking with him in person and seeing the systematic and very organized way he analyzes his patient’s symptoms and what type of surgical approach they might need, I was convinced to use him for my surgery.

He will not push you or rush you into a surgery decision. What he will do though is arm you with the very best information you can get about your condition so you can make a smart decision.” -Wade Van Arsdale

“Dr. Nimesh H. Patel is a Neurosurgery & Spine Specialist who has greatly improved my quality of life. When I met with Dr. Patel for a consultation concerning my MRI and back history, his demeanor and personality instilled confidence in his expertise as a surgeon. Dr. Patel explained the results of my MRI and shared with me that the MRI had revealed severe stenosis in my lower back. He then shared with me that he could provide relief from my back pain, and possibly prevent further damage in the future. Dr. Patel was kind and displayed a genuine concern for my health and well being. The surgery went well, and I experienced pain relief early in the weeks following surgery. Stacey Castellanos, a Nurse Practitioner who works with Dr. Patel, was excellent and very supportive during this process and my surgery. Dr. Patel is an excellent surgeon, and I would highly recommend him to anyone suffering with back pain.” -Tom Spradling
