New Office! 900 W. Chandler Blvd #A2, Chandler (NE corner of Chandler & Alma) Hashimoto / Hypothyroid Clinic
(480) 782-7522 Welcome to Chandler’s Integrative Endocrinology and Rheumatology Clinic — Endocrinology emphasis: Hashimoto / hypothyroid. Rheumatology emphasis: Spine care, minor acute injuries and chronic non-inflammatory musculoskeletal problems — through a customized blend of conventional medications and complimentary approaches.
Affordable Community Clinic - focused on areas within Endocrinology & Rheumatology
A non-government community clinic. Most community clinics are either free clinics staffed by part-time doctors and staff, or they are funded by government sources. This clinic is privately owned and free of the bureaucracy of governement or corporate healthcare entanglements, and thus able to operate at low costs while still providing a high level of personalized service. This is only practical if we focus on certain areas of endocrinology and rheumatology only in the ambulatory (non-hospital) setting. Dr Barnett chose this path because he believes it is the ethical ideal of of outpatient healthcare. It is not practical for clinic which takes insurance to offer fees as low as ours (even including insurance discount rates), and still offer the high quality of care that we provide.
Dr. Barnett uses BOTH conventional medical approaches AND the best of alternative approaches to treat a variety of common endocrine (hormone) diseases, with an emphasis on thyroid disease / Hashimoto hypothyroidism.
- Hot flashes
Dr. Barnett blends conventional exams, labs and imaging with the best of evidence-based alternative medicine. Most hypothyroid patients will be prescribed NatureThroid, which is a glandular medication containing all thryoid hormones in one pill. However, it may be better for some patients to be on Synthroid or its generic, Cytomel or its generic, or some other thyroid medication, including compounded alternatives to manufactured drugs. Other hormones, medications, or supplements may be recommended as well. Each patient receives a customized approach based on many factors.
Treatment of Hashimoto Thyroiditis is bulk of Dr. Barnett’s practice. He is confident in providing the best clinical approach to protect the thyroid, improve symptoms, while still preserving bone health, which is a concern when using Synthroid (levothyroxine) or other non-glandular medications.
Dr. Barnett mixes regular medicine with acupuncture, spinal adjustments and traction to create a custom approach for each patient’s needs and preferences, which is an alternative to typical chiropractic or conventional medical approaches. His rheumatology emphasis is on chronic non-inflammatory problems, especially of the spine utilizing a combination of joint manipulation, trigger point work, acupuncture, injections, prescription medications, and evidence-based supplements.
Spine Care & Non-inflammatory Conditions
Dr. Barnett provides an integrative medicine approach to spine care and other chronic joint problems from minor acute injuries, the effects of old injuries, irregular anatomy, repetitive stresses, and osteoarthritis, He combines the most time tested and evidence based aspects of traditional medicine such as spinal manipulation, clinical nutrition, and acupuncture with the most conservative aspects of conventional medicine, such as injections, traction, and prescription medicines.

- Psoriatic Arthritis

Inflammatory / Autoimmune ArthropathiesDr. Barnett is not an endocrinologist. Rather, he is a naturopathic general practitioner using an integrative medicine approach (blend of natural and conventional medicine) to treat many inflammatory / autoimmune rheumatologic conditions such as rhumatoid arthritis and lupus. Although he has a strong preference to co-manage auto-immune (inflammatory) arthropathies, as long as you do not have a severe flare-up or compromised immune system, or are dependent upon injection medication (biologics) for management of your condition, Dr. Barnett is usually willing to manage your condition. He is comfortable prescribing most rheumatology prescription medications as long as patients are capable and willing to be monitored closely with frequent / appropriate exams, blood work, and possible imaging. He may recommend that conventional medication be combined with acupuncture and supplements if helpful.

Looking for a doctor who will treat you as a unique person? Conventional medicine is very good at treating the majority of persons who neatly fit into a textbook picture of a single disease. Dr. Barnett does not reject conventional medicine. He is willing to prescribe conventional medicine. However, as an integrative medicine physician, most of his patients are not so easy. Most of them have come to him because the conventional approach has failed to treat their symptoms satisfactorily. He finds that integrative medicine (one foot in conventional medicine & one foot in alternative medicine) is the ideal combination to treat challenging cases.
