I first saw Dr. Barrett when I was 71 because I had carried mail for over 22 years and had injuries my primary Dr. thought would benefit from his care after I told her I had had many side-effects from the medications I had been taking when I was working. He helped me get ready for knee replacement and referred me to Valir physical therapy. Thanks to Dr. Barrett I am still fit and healthy at 77. I highly recommend Sports medicine for any active person who wants to stay that way for life.
