Dr. James Barnes Was Caught in the Act of Being Awesome
A small office, especially a doctor's office, with a staff of only three, can be a blessing or a curse.
If all three truly like and respect one another, it can an incredible blessing. Of course, if there's a "squeaky wheel", it can be a horrific nightmare. Thankfully, in the case of Dr. James Barnes' office, all three members are like family, and Dr. Barnes' two employees, Tori and Taylor, truly believe that Dr. Barnes hung the moon.
After we read the nomination letter they wrote about Dr. Barnes, we're convinced he might have hung the moon as well.
Just see why he was an easy choice as this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award!
We have both worked with Dr. Barnes for years and we both came from other physician offices before working for him and no doctor compares to ours! Let us tell you why....Dr. Barnes is compassionate about his career and his job of helping people find themselves again. He has been performing Bariatric Surgery, also known as "weight loss surgery" for 26 years. He works sun up to sun down making sure each patient he sees is handled with care and he never makes anyone feel uncomfortable about their weight and never falls short to assure any patient that he is here to help. Dr. Barnes works so hard not only during the week but even on the days after a long shift, being on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week, he still manages to find time to make picture frames from wood, refurnishes old furniture from time to time, and spends unlimited amounts of time with his family! Before COVID hit Dr. Barnes would take trips a few times a year to Haiti to help out over there for people in need. He even had to deliver a women's baby in the parking lot when visiting there and never once complained about it when telling us the story. One thing that both sticks with us both to this day from a few years back is Dr. Barnes taking his car to get new tires just up the street from our office at lunch right after we finished seeing patients. He comes back into the office just drenched in sweat and we both jokingly said "Dang! What did you do? Walk back?" He laughed and said "Yes I did! It wasn't to far!" He even had a few people who knew him ask him if he wanted a ride and he declined them. He does not get enough recognition for how kind hearted, hard working, and down to earth he really is. He is just your ordinary guy who doesn't brag about having such a successful career. He just lives his day to day life as a laid back guy and he would give his shirt off of his back to anyone with no questions asked! He deserves a night off to take his beautiful wife, Christina out to dinner and just to relax!
Dr. Barnes should be this weeks kiss country caught in the act award because we catch him everyday and can't thank him enough for all he does!
Dr. Barnes, because you've been 'Caught in the Act' the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner!
Take a listen to the phone call we made to James to let him know that he was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
