13 Patient Reviews for Dr. Barnhart

"Dr. Barnhart was great. My valve is now working perfectly. I'm so thankful!"

-- Bob Strayhan, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr. Barnhart recognized the importance of immediate surgery on my heart after passing out 3 times within a short timeframe. He said that he could not ethically let me leave the hospital without surgery. I agreed and I had aortic valve replacement the next day. I'm thankful for his sense of urgency and I'm thankful for the work he did. I'm doing great 4 months later. No recovery issues. I would highly recommend him. "
