About Barry Jones, MD

Barry Jones, M.D., is a licensed psychiatrist at Georgia Behavioral Health Professionals working in the Cumming office.

My training as a medical doctor, addictionologist, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst has given me a unique background for the evaluation and treatment of patients. My education has spanned a period of almost 38 years, and continues so that I may always remain abreast of the latest developments.

As with any medical specialty, psychiatry is always changing. New and better approaches to solving problems are being developed. As a member of professional organizations, I am able to keep up on the changes and to share new ideas with other doctors.
