What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

Most of our patients have been with us for many years. We focus on listening to a patient's concerns, and understanding how that patient's unique situation affects their course and treatment. We provide expert care in the diagnosis and management of even the most complex gastrointestinal disorders.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Choose a doctor with extensive experience in GI care, and a solid relationship with the medical community that relies on him or her. On your first visits, see if your doctor is a good listener, and takes an interest in you as a person, not just a problem to solve.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

GI problems affect so many people, some briefly, and some for lengthy periods of their lives. Establishing a solid relationship with a good caregiver allows people to more confidently get back to their productive lives.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

Over the past two decades, our Gastroenterology practice has developed a thoughtful and very complete array of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to fully treat most common and complex GI disorders. My particular passion is in the care of patients with both Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis, as well as the treatment of patients with disorders of the liver, bile ducts, and pancreas.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

I'm moved when I hear that my patients insist on waiting for MY availability when it's time for an office consultation, or a scheduled follow-up procedure. I'm moved beyond words when someone reminds me that I saved their life, or that of a loved one.

What makes your practice stand apart?

We are a dedicated group of GI physicians, passionate about our work, expertly trained, and committed to being at the forefront of Gastroenterology - caring for our patients within a community setting, outside the hustle of Boston.

How many years have you been in business?

I joined Dr. Doree Barton in 1989, and have had the pleasure of watching our practice grow over these 30+ years.
