BiographyPeggy Barton, RN, BSN, ARNP, specializes in family practice and women's health, and believes that patients who are involved in their care have a better understanding of their health, resulting overall in best outcomes. As a result of this philosophy, Barton educates her patients and allows them to make informed decisions regarding their care.
Barton genuinely cares for each of her patients and their families, understanding the importance of providing the Best Outcome for Every Patient, Every Time®. She understands the anxiety and worry that accompanies any medical setting and often promotes the power of remedies such as probiotics, normal saline, Tylenol, Ibuprofen or ice for injuries to patients, before they feel the need rush in for care.
For those in the primary care setting, Barton encourages patients to make consistent healthy choices throughout their lives such as: smoking cessation, diet changes, exercise and meditation.
