Celebrating National Doctor’s Day With One Of Our Physicians


As the need for emergency care increases, so does the need for emergency physicians and at Golden Triangle Emergency Center, we have some of the best of these doctors.

Since it’s National Doctor’s Day, we’re going to be discussing how GTEC is different from other emergency facilities and why one of our very own physicians, Dr. Brad Barton, chose to pursue medicine.


Celebrating National Doctor's Day With One Of Our Physicians


What made you want to pursue medicine?

I have wanted to be a physician since I was about 5 years old. My father and grandfather were both physicians as well, so I guess it just runs in the family.

What’s a typical day like for you at GTEC?

Unlike most ERs, ours has a quiet and relaxed vibe right that you’ll notice when you walk in the door. Patients often see the doctor before they finish filling out the paperwork, ensuring their satisfaction. This is a result of our top notch hand-picked staff. We love our employees and they love working at GTEC. This translates to a very attentive and friendly patient interactions.

What’s the most rewarding part about working at a facility like GTEC?

The most rewarding part of working at GTEC as opposed to the hospital-based ER is that we get to really spend a lot of time with the patient so they can most accurately describe their symptoms and what happened to them. This time with the patient is exceedingly important for both their treatment and the doctor. In the overcrowded hospital-based ERs, the emphasis is on seeing as many patients as possible, which means short, abrupt conversations with your physician. At GTEC, our patients aren’t treated like just another number. We offer highly attentive and individualized care as a happy and healthy patient is the ultimate reward for us.
