About Brian Barmettler, MD

I chose to pursue medicine to assist people with their health and decided on internal medicine as my specialty in order to develop ongoing relationships with patients. The opportunity to collaborate with patients and help them with their health is rewarding. I believe in working with each individual in addition to their other providers with a teamlike attitude. Using good communication to develop relationships with patients is important. I enjoy getting to know people and learning about their lives and interests. I love reading, paddleboarding, playing guitar and ukulele, and traveling when I am not working.

I feel fortunate to have found a new physician so well qualified who listened to my health concern and shared a plan for tests to diagnose my condition. He also saw to it that I can see him promptly when the test results are In.
