Primary care providers do a good job screening patients.

Dr. William Barrett in an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee replacement. He performs more than 500 hip and knee replacement procedures each year and is actively involved in clinical research on joint replacement. Dr. Barrett has been voted one of the “Top Docs” by Seattle Metropolitan Magazine and Seattle Magazine for several years, including 2011.

“Project Access is a well-run program in that the primary care physicians do a good job screening the patient and getting them ready for surgery. The patients come in and see us and, if surgery is appropriate, then we are able to get them scheduled. Valley Medical Center donates the hospital services, and the implant company donates the implants. It’s been my experience that the patients in Project Access are incredibly appreciative. They know you’re doing this as charitable work, and they’re very thankful.”
