I saw Dr. Barrett when I shattered my ankle. He was gracious enough to know at that time, almost 15 years ago, that he didn’t have the skills to repair that much damage. He referred me to an excellent surgeon in Philadelphia and I had the best care. It takes an honest and caring doctor to know your limitations. Dr Barrett was a fairly new surgeon but he knew enough to send me for the kind of Doctor that he aspired to be and has become. I’m back in his care and couldn’t be happier!

I broke my elbow on 1/1/2018. I procrastinated for a full week telling myself it was just a sprain. Dr. Barrett came highly recommended by family and friends., I am happy to say that the whole experience was more than satisfactory. Dr. Barrett is an excellent surgeon with an excellent staff. He has a warm, caring, respectful attitude toward his patients and I highly recommend him.

In Oct. of '15 I had a total knee replacement. A few months ago I had my other knee replaced. I realize how very fortunate I am to have had such an exceptionally skilled, kind, and compassionate surgeon as Dr. Barrett. I am ecstatic that both of my legs are perfectly straight and I can walk normally again without pain. What more could I ask for. I will be forever grateful to him. In addition, Dr. Barrett has a team of highly trained medical professionals who assist him. My thanks to them also.

This doctor-if that is what you want to call him- has the worst bedside manors ever. He does not listen to his patients, he would much rather dismiss them and tell them to go and see a different physician. This was the worst experience that I have ever had.

My family and I have been long time patients of Dr. Thomas Barrett one reason or another. My Mother who lives in Philadelphia broke her elbow while she was here visiting and Dr. Barrett operated on her. When she went home and followed up with an Orthopedic Surgeon, the practice was SO impressed with his work that they were asking my Mother who did it, what practice he was with and said he did a wonderful job because the elbow is very difficult to work on! I would NEVER see anyone else!
