Had total left knee replacement in May and total right knee replacement in August. Highly recommend Dr. Barrett and his associated, Jason Wilhelm, NP. Both were incredibly informative, were never pushy, thoroughly (and accurately!) explained what I could expect post-surgery and, most importantly, have always been available to return my calls to answer my questions. I think these two walk on water (I never would have had them do the second knee if I didn't) and I give them the highest of recommendations.

Went to Dr Barrett for a 2nd opinion and found his explanation of the process and expectations thorough and exceptionally helpful in making a hip replacement decision.

I received a hip replacement from Dr .Thomas Barrett at University Orthopedics in Rhode Island. It was a life changer. I had progressive osteoarthritis in my left hip, which made me increasingly incapacitated and in constant pain for the last 18 months. With a referral from my primary care physician, I went to my appointment at the Kettle Point facility. (Incredible campus). I was seen, x-rayed, and immediately diagnosed by Dr. Barrett, that my left hip was destroyed, and my only recourse was a total hip replacement. Surgery was scheduled. I received a call from Dr. Barrett on the evening prior to the procedure, inquiring how I was doing, and if I had any concerns or questions. I have never had a physician do that to me before. Day of surgery- I arrived at Miriam Hospital in Providence, RI. for the event. At multiple times I was asked for the name of my surgeon. When I responded “Dr. Barrett,” the universal response to me was “ He is the best”. He is. 6 weeks later-I am cured.

I am extremely happy with the care I've received from Dr Barrett and the entire practice of University Orthopedics in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. I definitely recommend them. Everyone that works there, in any capacity, so helpful. The staff is friendly and kind and the Physical Therapy department is spotless! Dr. Barrett in particular is patient, and thorough and explains everything in terms I could understand. He takes as much time with me as I needed. I worked with two physical therapists, Mark and Fran, and they are careful and very motivating while also nudging me along and without them I wouldn't have achieved the success I have. I heartily recommend this establishment to anyone that would like to have the very best care!

Dr. Barrett did revision knee surgery on my right knee. He totally removed everything I had done by another orthopedist 15 years ago. I had less pain and a far quicker recovery than the first knee replacement. In 5 weeks I was back on my 150 Montauk Whaler fishing for stripers. Thanks Doc.

I had my surgery May 29th and I have never had a doctor call me the night before surgery to see if they were any questions or concerns. His staff Ann and Sarah are truly wonderful people. This group of individuals are truly educated and have a wonderful bedside manner.

I had needed a full knee replacement for a couple of years. I finally made the decision to get it done. Dr. Barrett was recommended not only by the amazing Dr. Tabbador at University Orthopedics, he was also recommended by a good friend who recently had the knee replacement. I am extremely happy with the results. Dr. Barrett has an excellent bed side manner and took time with me before the surgery to calm my nerves. It's been 3 months since the surgery. He makes you feel like you are not just another "case". Dr. Barrett also has a great team! I also had an amazing physical therapist at University Orthopedics too which helped my rehab tremendously. I would highly recommend Dr. Barrett. I can honestly say I have had multiple surgeries and various physical therapy at other places throughout the years but University Orthopedics and Dr. Barrett are the best in my book!

Dr. Barrett is a very nice person. He spends enough time with you to explain your x-rays, procedure, outcome etc.. Very thorough. He performed my total knee replacement surgery in December 2019. I highly recommend him and University Orthopedics.

Dr. Barrett has performed a total knee replacement revision on my left knee. I am a veteran of knee replacement surgeries, after having gone thru bi-lateral partial replacements, then after I wore them down, bi-lateral total knee replacements. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Dr. Barrett has totally exceeded my expectations with this revision. He has amazing surgical skills, and has an outstanding bedside manner. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great knee doctor.

Dr Barrett is an amazing person and doctor. He took time with me to discuss pros and cons about my condition. He looked me in the eyes when he spoke to me and made me feel like he cared about me as a person not a insurance number. I am extremely happy with the doctor and his staff. He is a stand up man and a doctor that I trust wholeheartedly. Keep being the exceptional doctor that you are. I will send my friends and family to you without hesitation.

I saw Dr Barrett because I was having knee issues. I found Dr. Barrett's manner to be very interested in me as the patient, taking the time to discuss my short and long term goals, and he laid out several options, including physical therapy. However, ultimately knee replacement surgery was the answer Leading up to the surgery, and post op care Dr. Barrett has made himself available whenever I had an issue, a question, or problem. I saw him after surgery, the day after before I went home, and followed up in his office at regular intervals. I found him to be a very caring doctor who followed up with personal telephone calls to check on my well-being. I cannot recommend Dr Barrett enough. He made a very difficult operation and recovery easier. I don't think that my recovery would have been as complete without his skill and follow up

I had planned a trip to Italy and hurt my hip a couple of months before. Dr. Barrette was able to provide relief. He listened carefully, was kind, and non-judge mental.

Dr. Barrett was beyond exceptional treating my mom's broken hip. He went above and beyond with her needs and explaining the process of the surgery to me. He is super friendly, knowledgeable, and was extremely attentive to my mom and the questions that I had as well. I will absolutely recommend Dr. Barrett to anyone who needs any kind of Orthopedic needs in the future.

While Dr. Barrett's surgical skills seem ok, his bed side manner and desire to make his patients comfortable after major surgery is subpar.... to be blunt.... this man has zero empathy for his patients. Never have I ever seen a doctor act so cold towards a patients pain threshold. It was disappointing and upsetting. I am not his patient, nor would I recommend anyone to him, however it breaks my heart watching someone I love suffer because of the lack of confidence from this doctor.
