Specialties

Dr. Albert A Barrows III has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Excellent Services

I have been going to Dr. Barrows for quite some time now, and he has never left a question in my mind about the services that he offers. I require a lot of different services because I travel so much for work, and he has always been knowledgeable and informative with the way he has to handle my unique situations. When I return home, I always know that I have a good primary care physician.

Difficult parking for handicap access

The handicap ramp extends into the handicap parking space and for a full sized van the parking spot is too small. And the only way out of the parking lot from that parking spot is to back up out of the lot. No room to turn around. Very difficult in a large vehicle.

Top notch doctor

Dr Albert Barrows, Hyannis, Ma is in my estimation a top notch medical provider. He is not all smiles and small talk, but rather focuses all his attention on his patients well being. He is always quick to return phone calls and will answer questions unless he feels a visit is in order. I have never felt that I was being rushed during an office visit. He follows up on even the smallest issues leaving no stone unturned. Without a doubt I feel my medical well being is in good hands with Dr Barrows.

Bedside Manner

While Dr. Barrows is a good doctor and diagnoses well, his bedside manner is horrible. He RARELY smiles and looks at you while talking to you. His face is buried in your chart most of the time almost giving you the feeling that you are just a number in his line of patients for that day.
