CERTIFIED LIFE CARE PLANNER. ACTIVE CLINICAL PRACTICE. "I have known and worked with Dr. Barna as an expert for several years. Dr. Barna combines the rare qualities of intellectual brilliance, gifted healer, professional passion and patient compassion. He is an excellent communicator and has a great rapport with, most importantly, injured people. His service as a Life Care Planner is extremely effective due to the above character traits and also the following: (1) he is a licensed medical doctor; (2) he has received the highest level of Life Care Planner certification and (3) he continues to have an active clinical practice. In other words, it would be difficult, if not impossible, for his expert testimony to be disqualified and he is a very persuasive patient advocate.
