Dr. Thomas Barbour III has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

  • Orthopedic Surgery

    An orthopaedic surgeon is a physician who specializes in diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and disorders involving the musculoskeletal system, such as hip replacements and arthroscopic knee surgery.

First Visit

Check in went smoothly; wait time was minimum. Dr Barbour entered the exam room almost immediately. Examined my finger--reason for the visit--thoroughly. Simple in-office surgery will take care of the problem. Date for surgery established. I'm very pleased.

Horrible bed side manner

Supposedly a sports medicine doctor. Do NOT take your child to him. His professional opinion for my 13 yr old athletic son, after 9 months of being out of ALL sports, was to stay out another year and quit all throwing sports. He thought my son was a pitcher, which he's not. Very berating, argumentative, unprofessional and a severe cause of GOD-complex.
