Taryn Barrette, MMS, PA-C

St. Vincent General Hospital would like to introduce you to our newest provider, Taryn Barrette, P.A. A physician assistant at the Leadville Medical Clinic, she is passionate about providing a complete care approach tailored to the needs of each patient. “I always try to treat the whole patient,” says Barrette. “I want to know who you are, where you are from and what your goals are for yourself. I want to work with each person individually to maximize what they believe health to be. I focus on mental health, physical health and preventive health at the same time.” Taryn started her medical career as a registered dietitian, where her passion for preventative care formed. “After working for almost 2 years as an RD doing research and consulting in nursing homes, I felt that the best place for me to be if I wanted to engage in preventive medicine was to be in primary care. I found the best way to get there was through P.A. school,” Taryn says. “Being in primary care and having a nutrition background is a great way to mingle health care with prevention.” Originally from California, Taryn has also called Massachusetts, Arizona and Utah home. Taryn, along with husband, Bill, and her dog, Toby, are overjoyed to be part of Leadville – and the wealth of outdoor activities the community offers. “I am so excited to be part of a tight knit, small community. I love the idea of being an integral part of a group of people working towards a common goal.” Taryn adds, “And of course, I am drawn to Lake County's amazing outdoors and mountains.” Taryn is now accepting patients at the clinic located at 825 W 6th Street, Leadville, CO 80461. Walk-ins are welcome: Monday, Tuesday and Friday between 8am – 5pm; Wednesday and Thursday from 5-7pm.
