When specialty services are needed, Dr. Barbee has a strong network of colleagues to refer her patients out to for high-quality care.
Do you treat children and teens?
I see patients from age five and up. I really like to see whole families, because I get a good perspective on what’s going on in all of their lives. Family history plays a complex and important role in my treatment of later generations.
For my younger patients, I do annual well-child exams, immunizations, sports participation physicals, and treatment for issues like asthma, acne, eczema, and more.
Do you treat geriatric patients?
Absolutely! My older patients typically come to me with a longer history of illnesses, medications, etc. I help guide and coordinate the care they receive from specialists. Each person is different, and I strive to take care of their unique needs.
Which gynecology services do you provide?
As a family doctor, I am fully trained in women’s health. I encourage all my female patients to come in for checkups and to get Pap tests and other preventative care as recommended. I also work with each individual patient to find the right birth control for her needs, treat STDs as necessary, and provide support for menopause.
Women’s health involves a lot of personal decisions and a high awareness of the body. As a woman myself, I empathize with my patients and understand that some issues are harder to discuss than others. I strive to be a resource my patients are confident in and comfortable with whenever they need advice or treatments.
