By focusing on lifestyle changes, nutrition and personal stressors, we guide patients to take a healthier approach to everyday living. This helps patients become aware of the things they can do to prevent disease. The staff arranges the preventive health care testing; such as colonoscopies, mammograms, bone mineral density, prostate testing etc.; thus removing the hassle of scheduling and insurance questions, making it easier for the patient to stay on target.
The annual wellness examination involves an interview process where the past year is evaluated and the current complaints shared. The wellness examination then gives the physician the opportunity to uncover the beginnings of a disease process before it gets out of control, leading to early detection and greater ability to correct the issues.
By limiting her practice to a limited number of patients, Dr. Britten is able to be accessible 24/7 to address those illnesses that cannot be anticipated. It may require interacting with the necessary specialists to solve the issues or perhaps caring for the patient in the hospital. But whatever it is, Dr. Britten will be there to guide the patient and the family through the process and help to return them to good health.
Come meet Dr. Britten and learn of the exceptional 24/7 medical care!
So many people work very diligently to manage their financial assets as they move toward or enjoy the goal of retirement. Our health, the care, the maintenance and the gratification of living well are assets that are even more significant to our everyday life. The brilliant expertise and exceptionally personalized commitment to each patient in her care, makes Dr Barbara Ann Britten an unparalleled manager of your most precious asset; your health. Her skilled supervision of her patient’s well being is a superb balance of tenacious ‘leave-no-stone-unturned’ health investigation, caring bedside manner and the knowledge and assurance of years of practice combined with ongoing analysis and study. I write this as the daughter of a woman entering her tenth decade in life and who has been in Dr Britten’s care for years. Through every aspect of my mother’s fiercely independent later years, Dr Britten has been an advocate, experienced voice and soft shoulder on whom my mother could call on and count on. Living 1,000-miles away but knowing my mother is in Dr Britten’s care makes the miles melt away and assuages my worry. The ever-ready care and concern she demonstrates with each interaction is palpable. I cannot imagine a more excellent manger of anyone’s most valuable asset….our health.
Dr. Britten is a Board Certified Internal Medicine physician, who has been practicing medicine for thirteen years, the last six here in Naples, Florida, where her reputation for compassion, medical expertise and patient care is well known.
After raising her daughter and son, Dr. Britten returned to the academic arena and graduated from New Jersey Medical School/University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, in 1997. She graduated at the top of her class and was elected into the medical honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha.
Residency training was done at University Hospital, Newark, NJ. Training in the inner city gave Dr. Britten the opportunity to care for large numbers of patients from all walks of life. That experience has been the driving force for her to volunteer at the Neighborhood Clinic, a clinic for the working poor.
Dr. Britten lives on Marco Island with her husband of forty years. She enjoys swimming, golfing and spending time with her grandson.
