Barnes, Phillip Lance Dr
I've been the patient for many physicians over the years for injuries or ailments. Among the military, VA, and civilian, without a doubt Lance Barnes stands apart from them all. Reasons? Simple; he is a man of heart and caring that most physicians seem to separate from, or not have the capacity to show when care providing. The circumstances of our lives at the time are too personal, too painful to recount here. The woman referenced in 'our', will always be a part of me. When, before and after hurricane Katrina, he tended to us, it was not just his amazing capacity to be a true physician and healer, but to be a man and 'friend' in the most real sense of the word that has never left either my memory or soul. If all doctors were like Dr. Philip Lance Barnes this world would be a far better place. Thank you Lance; for the times you not only cared for us, but for the times we embraced... and your equally caring and magnificent wife was pure lagniappe, also a godsend. May G-d bless you both.

Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
