“Way back in September of 2015, I never imagined that by May of 2016, I would be the new person I am today. Please know how much I appreciate you and all you have done for me. I often think of you when I list people I am grateful for. As of this date, I am able to resume some of my most loved activities and at a level that I was capable of 15 years ago. It has been an amazing journey into a renewed future for me. Because of you and your expertise, I am pain free and a "free range" senior citizen.
This is not enough, but just a gesture of my heartfelt gratitude.”
“I am so glad I had the total knee replacement done. Even a few days after surgery, I did not have the amount of pain I had for years prior.
Everything went well right from the doctor's office, right through the procedure and my hospital stay. I would definitely recommend Dr. Componovo and all the staff at Moutain Valley Orthopedics.”
“Dr. Barnes is very knowledgeable and very personable. I really like him very much and completely trust him.”
“I had a sudden attack of a serious infection in a hip that had been replaced 20 years ago with no problems since. Suddenly, I could no longer walk and I was a newcomer to this area with no previous medical connections. Pocono Medical Center spent a day testing me & found sepsis in my hip. Dr. Camponovo was called in on an emergency basis & set up a procedure for an operation to attempt to remove that infection & called in several specialists to consult, as the cause was unknown, but very serious. He was at the hospital every day to check on me with infection specialists. He followed up for 3 months while I was in recovery at home. At all times, he was honest with me about the possibility that the treatment might not work & what treatment may have to follow in the future. He worked very closely with Dr. Gandotra, the infection specialist, & my treatment with him. His instructions for my recovery were very strict & he explained in detail what might happen if I did not follow them. He was also frank about a possibility of a future attack & the drastic treatment for it. I really appreciated his honesty & his strictness about treatment. Some patients like to have their hand held & be told that all is wonderful. I do not. I want to know that my doctor is telling the truth yet showing a concern for my health.”
“Dr. Barnes is one of my favorite doctors. He is so kind to his patients and spends time with you to hear your problems. He has been trying to solve my knee problems for quite awhile now and has me doing tests and seeing other doctors to get to the problem. He is believing it is coming from my back and just keeps working with you. He did 2 knee operations on me. He is ALWAYS laughing and with a little giggle. Even when you are going to surgery, you know he is close by. His nursing staff is great. So friendly. Always calls you by name. I am always relaxed when I am there and know he will have you laughing. I would and always do recommend him to others.”
“I had arthroscopic surgery on my knee and let me tell you that I was very happily surprised that the pain after the surgery was very minimum. Dr. Barnes is not only an excellent doctor, but he has a terrific bedside manner. He is also a part time comedian. Thanks, Doc.”
“Referred from emergency room for severely swollen left calf. A couple weeks later, bad pain and weakness in both knees. After a couple visits for the severely swollen calf plus now knee pain, he asked for new contrast MRI and x-ray and blood tests. He discovered that I had Lyme Disease! After one week on antibiotics, my knees were much better – finished regimen of antibiotics and several weeks later am recovered! His intuition/experience was EXCELLENT.”
“Doctor came in to hospital on a Sunday to see me. Ditched his family to see how I was doing 4 or 5 hrs. Later I was operated on. The follow-up every day he came in to see me personally, and PA came later to check on my progress. I was told by Dr. Williams any time there's a problem, come in and he would see me because I live 260 miles away. Doing fine one year later, back to work, not bad for a guy who could not walk a couple of days.”
“Wonderful, intelligent, and empathetic physician. He does something that most doctors do not do; he listens to his patients and he actually hears them. I was pleasantly surprised and relieved that he prescribed a treatment plan for me that worked. I can not say enough about him. I highly recommend this efficient, caring physician and his office personnel.”
“Dr. Barnes is very honest in his conversations. He is open to what I have to say and listens.”
