Physician: Thomas A. Barrett, MD
I had a procedure on my right shoulder by Dr. Barrett. The total experience was exceptional. From the day of surgery to the follow-up visits. Initially I was a little apprehensive due the fact I had the same procedure on my Left shoulder several years ago and I remember the excruciating pain that followed. This time I had the procedure performed at Shore Medical Center and the anesthetist preformed a shoulder nerve block and it helped considerably with the pain following surgery. Dr. Barrett, in my opinion is the BEST at what he does, I have several surgeries performed by him and his attention to detail is uncanny. He is professional, courteous and knowledgeable, and explains everything so that the lay person can understand. I highly trust his professional opinion and his surgical expertise.
After Care Program – I have had the most wonderful follow-up after my knee surgery. Ralph,, who is Dr Barrett’s surgery assistant is one of the most caring and considerate people my husband and I have ever met. Never at problems for him to explain even the smallest concern that I had about my recovery. Shore Memorial is truly blessed to have him on staff. Thank you Ralph for your caring and most of all you taking the time to talk and explain exactly what what I would have to go through after the surgery. Although it was a lot of work to get where I am not after 4 weeks, the physical therapist from Cape who are associated with Bayada could not have been more caring. The PT is Mary Ann, not sure of her last name but she was the push behind me to keep me motivated. Thanks so very much to Ralph and Mary Ann for all their time and caring that they devoted to me.

Repaired a broken femur from a slip and fall on water on a leg that had already had a hip replacement and two revisions and a knee replacement with one revision. Complicated surgery and I am pain free! from the broken femur! Excellent job along with excellent bedside manner!

It’s been four months since I had my second total knee replacement by Dr. Barrett.
I realize how very fortunate I am to have had such an exceptionally skilled, kind, and compassionate surgeon as he is. I am so overwhelmed that my legs are now perfectly straight and I can walk normally again without any pain. What more could I ask for.
I will be forever grateful to him. In addition, Dr. Barrett’s surgical team is also fantastic. My gratitude is extended to them also.
