Learn More About Our Services

My parents first took me to East Penn Medical Practice when I was a little boy. I have so many good memories of visits to see Dr. Robert Barnes. You couldn't ask for a more caring or compassionate physician. His gentle nature and attentive bedside manner always made me feel safe as a child.

I'm now 42 years old and I have three children of my own. I take all my children to see Dr. Robert Barnes, and I was thrilled when his son, Dr. Brian Barnes, joined the practice in 2005. Dr. Brian is just like his Dad... ever-concerned about the health and well-being of his patients, ready to listen and always attentive. I've always felt like part of the family at East Penn Medical Practice and I can't imagine having a higher level of trust or confidence in a family doctor.
