Dr. James T Barrett has the following 2 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
- 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.

I was pleased overall with this visit. Dr. Barrett took the time to listen to my symptoms, come up with testing to verify his diagnosis, and took the time to keep me update of everything along the way. His bedside manner was amazing and explanation for why he was doing what he was doing was clear. I would love to have him as my primary care physician. My only complaint is that I was in the office longer than I had expected due to the extensive testing. From talking to the nurse, it is normal that he runs multiple tests to verify his clinical assumptions. I appreciate this thoroughness and wish more doctors were like this. Just don't expect to be in and out with this doctor.
