Our Carolina Care Highlight this week recognizes Dr. Kathleen Barnhouse, from the Department of Family Medicine. Here’s what one of Dr. Barnhouse’s patients had to say: “I truly like Dr. Barnhouse. She is in a position to make a difference in people’s lives and she does so with concern, care and experience. I have recommended her to friends and I will continue to do so. She is efficient and yet she has a great sense of humor and that puts me at ease…”


“…I explained my problem to her and she expressed what was happening and what course of action was necessary – she also gave me choices, which I appreciate. I was glad, in this instance, that there were choices. She took the time to perform a quick procedure to help my diagnosis along and then she referred me to an additional department at UNC for further testing. Her knowledge is evident and her manner is just perfect. She makes me feel like an integral part of a team. She is the best example of what a family medicine doctor should be and I felt fortunate to have her guide me through my problem.”


Our patients often provide comments about their providers when completing their Press Ganey patient experience survey. While you can always review comments at UNC Health Care’s Find-a-Doctor website, we will highlight a few of the best comments every two weeks.
