Specialties

Dr. Barry J Fenton has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

I have had the luck to find this outstanding physician when I was at the lowest point in my life. I cannot begin to tell you how he has helped me. He listens patiently, was very empathetic and helped me find my way back to reality. He is #1 in my book and would not consider going anywhere else. He has become my friend as well as my confidant.

Never again

After 6+ years of monthly visits and well over $5000 spent, never missing and appointment , never have I been late nor have I rescheduled an appointment or asked to have a Doctor call me back EVER NEVER!! Like Dr. Fenton but due to his heavy scheduled started seeing his PA JESSICA! Not good not kind doesn't even try to act like she cares or wants to hear what you have to say when flippantly asked how's everything going? She's busy writing, doesn't look up at you and if you ask her to be so kind and date a RX for filling day 29 Sso you can go on vacation instead of 30 days then your in trouble! She will not NOT DO IT but take it a step further and date it for day 31 so your travel plans will really be screwed! Doesn't even say have a good trip .. Nothing zero zip get out of her office! Sick to my stomach to think any of my money when in her big fat wallet! Go work in a dark damp prison as it not only suits your souless personality but kindness isn't a requirement!

Dr Fenton

Dr fenton dismissed me as a patient and never told me. I showed up for my appointment and was informed but I wasnever given a referral for another doctor. I needed my mess refilled as well and he wouldn't refill them. I am now out of my medications and can't get in to see another doctor for 3 weeks. I'm withdrawing from my, meds ( Zoloft, gabapentin and trazadone). I would t recommend him to my worst enemy!!!

I always feel a bit rushed and hurried and like I don't get the chance to say what I need to, but I really like him and his diagnoses are accurate and he's got me on good meds... I always leave feeling like I wish I'd have gotten the opportunity to express myself. However, I am comfortable, and I respect him a lot... I don't think I'm going anywhere anytime soon.
