Specialties

Dr. Brandon R Barton has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Best Dr i have ever had best bedside manner

I have been seeing Dr Barton for several years. I am one of his VA patients at Jesse Brown. My 1st visit was video taped with my permission. He wanted to take the video back to Rush hospital to present it to a group of doctor that meet to review special cases. He has the best bedside manner I have ever experienced in my life. He does not rush you during your visit. He will listen to everything you have to say. Before you leave he writes out instructions that are in words we can understand and explains each step of what he wants to accomplish before your next visit. If he is prescribing you a medication it goes on his written instructions exactly how he wants you to take it. He leaves nothing to chance and makes sure you uunderstand and are happy before your visit. I trust him with my life which is in his hands. He is one of the good ones and I am lucky I was sent to him. If you are looking for a doctor in his specialty you can't go wrong.

Made my life better!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suffer from Lupus attacking my brain. Through his careful and in depth review of me and my records, he made that diagnosis. His prescriptions and care have GREATLY IMPROVED MY LIFE!!!! I tell everyone who have witnessed my improvement that he's made it happen. I will forever be grateful to him. I used to have to stay home for years at a time due to pain and complications that made me look as thought I was having a stroke or seizure. Now? I can leave my house and engage in life again! Even if it's just a few hours at a time, it's better than being homebound.
