Complex Cases

What We Treat

Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

Dr. Barter is trained by some of the era's best internists.

Specializing in difficult complex, multi-faceted medical problems.


This debilitating condition affects millions of people.  Dr. Barter has closely followed the work of Bruce Patterson, MD and the Critical Care Coalition, watching the emerging published data on exactly what causes long COVID and what can be done about it.  Cornerstones of treatment in our office include:

  • Corticosteroid and adrenal support, as aggressive as tolerated
  • Blood thinners and fibrinolytic agents such as lumbrokinase, nattokinase, aspirin, heparin and others
  • Ivermectin
  • Inhalation treatments such as steroids or dilute hydrogen peroxide
  • Herbal or natural anti-inflammatories such as andrographis, elderberry, curcumin, resveratrol, melatonin, fish oil
  • Herbal or natural immune boosters such as Vitamin D, Vitamin C, zinc, quercitin, black cumin seed oil, olive Leaf, echinacea, low dose naltrexone
  • Intravenous therapies such as IV Vitamin C, IV Ozone-UBI, IV Phosphatidylcholine & IV Glutathione often with other nutrients
  • Beta blockers and short-term statins for cardiovascular inflammation and POTS symptoms
  • Treatment for Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, which is often set off by COVID infection and sometimes vaccination
