William Barnes M.D. 

I have practiced pediatrics in Claremore for the past twenty years, long enough that I am now seeing "second generation" patients. I attended college and medical school at Washington University in St. Louis. My pediatric internship was served at the St. Louis Children's Hospital and residency at the University of Colorado in Denver. I served for five years with the Claremore Indian Hospital staff leaving in 1981 for private practice. For eighteen years, I had a dual career in pediatrics and emergency medicine serving as the medical director for the Claremore Regional Hospital Emergency Department until 1996. I resigned my ER position in 2000 to devote full time to pediatrics.

My main non-medical passions are my family and church. I have three adult children and grandchildren. At home, Marsha and I have two boys. Spending time with Marsha, Tyler, and Whitley is my favorite activity. We are active church members at First Baptist in Claremore where Marsha and I enjoy teaching four year olds in Sunday School. I serve on the medical mission team to Nicaragua as have both Marsha and Tyler.
