Patient Reviews (1)
in Canton, MA |
I saw Dr. Barrett on two occasions for bowel leakage. He did not examine me on either occasion. He prescribed a probiotic. He next prescribed 30 days of an antibiotic. When I wrote him that the antibiotic was not working and asked for an explanation of his therapeutic strategy was, I got a response after more than a week only after I called the office to ask for one. A colorectal surgeon, after a simple examination, saw what Dr. Barrett would also have seen had he taken the time to examine me.
