Patient Reviews

Dr Barnett is incredible. Very concerned about me, tho she had never met me before. Took time, asked me questions, made me feel like I mattered. Informed me of test results before I left building. She is the best.

Dr. Barnett always has good advice. I especially like that she offers solutions that are not always "medical" but holistic/integrative.

Dr. Barnett skid-ish / quirky personality is getting old. IF there was an alternative to having her as my PCP, I would jump on it!

She was incredibly helpful and thorough.

I had been in to the clinic in March for the same issue. Doctor Barnett recognized me right away and remembered personal details (I was headed out of town right after my last visit) that made me feel like a real person and not a number.
