it went great, I'm back to work after following her plan and receiving treatment. I had a bulging disc that I thought would require surgery. She got me back to normal with no surgery thankfully, following her plan that included treatment from her and a referral to another doc as well.

Description of Work
Had a bad back, got treatment from Dr Barrett. She helped me get better. She always does great work, and is very professional and thorough. She really knows her stuff. I mistreat my back regularly, and she always gets me back on my feet and feeling well. Now if I would just follow her advice for the long term!

Doctor is a pleasant chap but made it clear that since I was a kaiser member all visits would be limited to 20 minutes--this even included the initial consult-Ths was frustrating to me but doctor indicated those were the parameters for kaiser patients-Not exactly the truth as I have since been advised by other naturopathic doctors that initial consult would be 40 to 60 minutes and average appt. time would be a half hour. I even mentioned this to Dr. Milner and his response was thats what he did. At times I felt like I was a charity case and was advised if I wanted more time I could go to his clinic and then he would "review" the work of his residents. His ultimate recommendations for diet and nutrition were almost identical to what I was allready doing. He apparently is an "expert" on cardiac naturopathy and did call me when I was too sick to come in. Overall I get the picture of someone more concerned with "business" . He apparently has been doing this for many years and now works only three days a week despite seeming relatively youthful. Since I stopped seeing him I have received letters that he now has "recent grad assistants" to help him oversee his workload-----seems like less involvement and more business for his practice which he own and has several employees.

Description of Work
visited naturopath for several visits to develop a program for cardiac health-Doctor gave me an an excellent exam and took history over five visits and made recomendations for diet and nutritional therapy

I used Cindy Anderson, one of the acupuncturists there. I really liked her. She did cupping on my shoulder and while it was somewhat painful, she explained why she was using cupping along with the needles. I bruised the next day, but my shoulder did feel better. Unfortunately, the treatment just wasn't working on my shoulder. I was disappointed that she didn't stop the treatment and offer some alternatives. I finally just quit going (I found massage to be more helpful). She is not the best acupuncturist I have had, but I would go back to her with specific injuries. The practice was good about billing my insurance.

Description of Work
Acupuncture for a frozen shoulder.

He didn't address my issue with my thyroid and he didn't have the test that would have given him the information. I got a bill for the appointment, but I would not agree to pay the entire bill.

Description of Work
I was going to consult with him about my thyroid condition, but he charges $250.00 for an appointment. Before the appointment, I requested that his staff get all of my records from my doctor. When I got to the appointment, he didn't have any of the information. He proceeded to talk to me about an experimental procedure that he has a proprietary interest in, but it had never been used on anyone with a brain injury.
