Specialties

Dr. Kulli M Barrett has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • 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.

Patient

I have never had a problem with Dr. Barrett. She spends time with me and explains everything about my tests and uses layman terms so that I can understand my lab tests. I think that she is great and came highly recommended by my urologist, and I trust him completely. Dr. Barrett is a good fit for me, and I can't remember her ever saying that I have to exercise as a treatment, only that exercise is good for everyone. I only have one kidney, lost one to cancer and she is taking excellent care of me. .
