Here at Family Practice Center, we really do think of our practice as a big family. This includes our healthcare providers, our entire medical team, as well as our incredible patients. It is always extremely exciting to us whenever we have the opportunity to welcome a new member into our family. So without any further ado, allow us to introduce our newest Family Practice Center healthcare provider, Dr. Cassandra Barnes.

A native of Acworth, Georgia, Dr. Barnes received an academic and softball scholarship from The University of Tampa where she would pursue and receive her Bachelor of Science degree. Dr. Barnes’ medical career began as a certified nursing assistant with a hospice agency during her time in college. While attending the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine, where she would earn her doctorate degree, Dr. Barnes worked as a medical assistant for a local family practice. Dr. Barnes completed her Family Medicine residency training at Baton Rouge General in Louisiana, where she was awarded with the Behavioral Science award.

Dr. Barnes is board-certified as a Family Medicine Physician and has a wide variety of areas of clinical expertise. This includes advanced knowledge of preventive medicine, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses, behavioral health, and matters pertaining to women’s health (including Pap testing, birth control, cardiovascular health, and more). When she’s not at work, Dr. Barnes enjoys spending her time watching and playing sports, traveling, cooking, fishing, and spending time with her family and friends.

Dr. Barnes’ diverse skill set and wealth of experience make her an ideal fit for Family Practice Center and our patients. As a practice, our mission is to provide the best, most professional, and beneficial care for every patient we see. We feel strongly that the addition of Dr. Barnes to our practice will help us improve the lives and wellbeing of our patients for many years to come.

We feel incredibly grateful to be able to welcome Dr. Barnes to our family and we can’t wait for our patients to have the chance to meet her for themselves. We will be beginning to book appointments with Dr. Barnes, starting this month.
