Edward Barns, M.D., FACS, is a board-certified ear, nose and throat specialist, also called an otolaryngologist, at Lake Regional ENT & Audiology. Dr. Barns specializes in advanced otolaryngology procedures, such as head and neck surgery, as well as allergy conditions, sleep apnea and endoscopic sinus surgery. And, he cares for pediatric patients, treating a full range of diseases and disorders, including chronic ear infections requiring tubes.

“As an ear, nose and throat specialist, I see patients from a wide array of ages,” Dr. Barns said. “I might step into one exam room and see an 8-month-old patient and then the next patient I see might be 90. That variety is what I really enjoy about my specialty.”

Before joining Lake Regional in 2015, Dr. Barns worked at Integris Bass Baptist Memorial Health Center in Enid, Okla.

The size and offerings of Lake Regional Health System drew Dr. Barns to practice here.

“It’s pretty amazing what’s available for people living here and those who come to enjoy the lake,” he said.

In addition to being certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, Dr. Barns is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy.
