Horrible woman! very Dismissive. Treated me like she was better than everyone. Will Not be returning- Only Decent thing about this office is the Assistant- Amanda. She was very professional and kind. Clearly doesnt belong there!

Dr Barrette was amazing. She performed emergency surgery on my calcaneus fx, my well being was priority. She explained everything thoroughly where I understood what and why. She' s direct and made me comfortable with her decision for the emergency surgery. I would highly recommend her and her team. I never felt nervous once .She is definitely A#1 in my book. A million thank you ' s to her and her team

This is a long time coming. Dr. Barrette performed a triple arthrodeses (sp) on my right ankle a few years ago. Following a long healing possess, rehab, and many braces, I am finally walking with no pain, and no braces. I can actually run a bit,. It feels great to move with no pain, although I do have a few "moments" at times. I truly appreciate all the care and advice she, and her staff, gave me. Sincerely, Frank Steffanides

She is a rude, arrogant, dismissive narcissist! She treats her patients like they are intellectually inferior! She offered me the most absurd recommendations- surgery and told me that it probably wouldn't work anyway! When I wanted to look at alternatives, she was gruff and rude & told me she sensed distaste in the air! Only someone with extreme arrogance would not realiz she herself is distasteful! I would never go back to her! I wouldn't let her operate on me or valet park my car at St Vs!!!
