Dr. James M Barry Jr 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.

Good, caring Doctor

I was referred to Dr. Barry by my PCP, who sees him for Multiple Sclerosis. She told me his manner could be odd but that he was a good doctor/she trusted and "like a a lot of specialists, they're brilliant but patient reparte is not their thing". I found him to be caring and extremely thorough. He accurately diagnosed my situation (that others had misdiagnosed) and took the time to learn more about for my follow up visit (fairly rare and not within his areas of focus). He manner IS offbeat but my non-professional guess is that he has Aspergers (runs in my family so I recognized it immediately). He acts a bit like the proverbial Mad Doctor 😊. One of the traveling techs told me that he's considered one of the best Neuros in DFW and I have recommended him to others, with the caveat that he's a bit of a funny duck but a good doctor. I never felt rushed or condescended to. His assistant at the time, Crystal, was great - very kind, quick on the follow up.

Unprofessional & Worst Bedside Manner

Dr Barry has the worst bedside manner of any doctor I have ever seen. He looked upward, acted as though he were intoxicated or high. He made snide comments under his breath and rolled his eyes. Even said comments like" This is one helluva problem isn't it!" I've suffered 2 months with this migraine, had iV infusions, been to ER & Carenow. His attitude was unprofessional and I left his office crying. Leaving one star only b/c you have to enter something to leave a comment.

I thought I WAS in pain until my appointment with THIS guy

The WORSE bedside manner. Strange, unsettling demeanor. Could not maintain eye-contact - constantly looking up or down. Spoke in short condescending spurts, under his breath, and then seemed exasperated when I couldn't understand him. He barely described his diagnosis and literally told me he couldn't help me that I had to go back to the referring physician. When I stated the referring doctor adamantly told me my problem was NOT what Dr. Barry had just diagnosed, he shrugged his shoulders and told me to do whatever I wanted to. I literally had to keep prying for information, advice and direction which seemed to make this guy's behavior even more unnerving. The whole experience was disagreeable, a waste of time and money and left me an emotional wreck having not received treatment options or prognosis. He gets one star only because I cannot post a review with "no stars".

Doesn't know how to talk to patients

We had an encounter with Dr. Barry & his behavior was bizarre and very unprofessional. I couldn't get out of the room fast enough. I wouldn't recommend this man to anyone.
