I have to say that Dr. Barrett and his entire staff are absolutely amazing! He made me feel very confident going in to a full hip replacement. I had zero fear. He and his nurse practitioner Tiffany did a fantastic job on my left hip. It was a rather complicated surgery yet they did it seamlessly. I’m so excited with the results that I can hardly wait to get my right hip done.

Just to put this in context, I am deathly afraid of needles so the fact that I had total trust in Dr. Barrett and his excellent team is a true testament to what a great orthopedic doctor he is. I would highly recommend Dr. Thomas Barrett to anyone. Outstanding!!!
