Psychiatrist in Columbus, Georgia, Louis Barton, MD

Louis Barton, MD

Louis Barton is a Psychiatrist with more than 40 years of experience. He started UCLA when he was 16 and by 18 was working as an EEG technician in a sleep research lab. In his senior year of medical school, Louis completed a student clinical research fellowship at the NIMH in psychopharmacology. Louis believes it is important to understand the patient’s context of their symptoms and the impact they have on the whole person, as the same symptom can be from very different and overlapping issues. He strives to use fewer medications, prescribed at doses based on the science. Louis offers cognitive based strategic therapy with a strong emphasis on trauma survival. He works to give useful suggestions using examples that would be familiar to a person’s unique experiences. In his spare time, Louis enjoys playing and building guitars, remodeling his home, and fixing old cars.
