I originally walked into Dr.Barrett’s office in June of 2017, frustrated with pain… confused and not knowing where to turn. I had previously been misdiagnosed for over a year and 1/2 by an orthopedic, who was not very familiar with what was going on and just felt like I had a stubborn injury that just didn’t want to get better and then treated and operated on by a orthopedic surgeon 3 times (2 on the right and 1 on the left ), who sort of washed his hands of my complaints and basically said “ you have a plain olde shin splint, suck it up and deal with it “ not his exact words but pretty much what my husband and I heard. At this point we didn’t know where to turn! I could not straighten my left leg out and flex my foot without unbearable pain. I got on Facebook group for people that had the same condition as me, which is Chronic Exertional compartment syndrome ( CECS)
and through lots of questions and a referral from a colleague in Las Vegas of Dr. Barrett’s, I landed in his office.
We walked into his office, the first week of June and I took all my previous doctor notes, surgery reports and test results and immediately, he looked a me and said “ it’s not a shin splint, you have nerve entrapments on top of the CECS”. He planned and additional test the following week and by Mid-July, I was scheduled for my first of a few surgeries that we knew were about to happen. When, we left the hospital that night, my husband left with Dr. Barrett’s cell phone to call in case of an issues.
Since that day in June of 2017, Dr. Barrett and his office staff, performed 6 surgeries on my calves combined and many other procedures to repair issues that were created prior to me landing in their office. They have also been there for me during the most difficult time in life !
You don’t get any better than this team.
