John M. Barnett, MD, is a board-certified radiation oncologist at UT Health East Texas Cancer Insitute in Athens. Dr. Barnett pursued a career in medicine because I wished to help patients with their medical needs. “I treat patients like I would want to be treated with compassionate care and concern.”
Dr. Barnett specializes in the use of radiation to treat prostate and bladder cancer in adults. “I began my journey in medicine in family practice and emergency medicine, but saw the need to use those diverse skills in the area of oncology.”
Dr. Barnett enjoys ranching, horsemanship and flying antique warplanes.
