Expert in treating rheumatoid arthritis
Dr Kaye-Barrett believes firmly in person-centred, holistic care. Within her rheumatology practice she liaises closely with other allied medical professionals such as physiotherapists, podiatrists, nutritionists, cranial osteopaths and acupuncturists in order to ensure the best possible outcomes for her patients. Discovering the most effective pain treatment for her patients is a priority, and she works alongside other specialists - including spinal surgeons, pain specialists and interventional radiologists.
