Verified Patient Reviews
After waiting for almost an hour to be seen, I expected superb service but that was not what I received. The doctor was not very personable or pleasant. I did not feel as if he had given me any usable information to assess the problem with my knee. I was really disappointed in this experience.
Please update the Zocdoc profile so it is clear that he specializes in arthritis and knee replacements.
He listened carefully and gave good advice.
Excellent physician! Through exam. I feel better already.
My visit with Doctor Harrington was very good.He explained procedures concerning my knee,we viewed x-rays together and he told me when i was ready for my left knee surgery let him know.In the meantime i could come back for further injections every three to four months if i chose to.
Great! Quick, relaxed and professional.
He takes his time with you and answers all questions without making you feel like he is rushed even when he is very busy.
Very receptive to my condition and offered a plan of action to address the treatment of the problem without the need of immediate surgery. I was very pleased with the candidness of his approach to the problem. I am happy to have found him.
Very nice and attentive staff. Dr. Harrington was easy to talk to and provided professional experience. I liked him and would go back if needed.
Dr. Harrington was great! I have had 4 different knee surgeries all on same knee! The last surgery was just two months ago. I have osteoarthritis and bone on bone. I will be 43 this week and have been told by several surgeons that I am too young for knee replacement! I get I'm younger than most knee replacement patients, but when I have tried everything from medications, injections, P.T., to surgeries and I am still in a lot of pain! This Dr. has been the only one who has listened to me! He is very attentive and I never felt that he was rushing me in and out like most surgeons.
Prompt, professional, and curteous.
Very Professional - explained problem and solution in great detail.
I was very pleased with his manner. I had quite a list of questions and he calmly sat there and fully answered every one. He didn't rush the conversation and showed me every courtesy.pp
Dr. Harrington was very attentive to my concerns. He explained the steps he was taking to remedy my problem .He left his office feeling 100% better!!!!
Great! Making an appointment was easy, to start with. Dr. Harrington's professionalism shows and I trust his judgment.
Very good visit. Doctor was methodical and systematic in both diagnosis and treatment.
My visit with Dr. Harrington was EXCELLENT. He came in and clearly explained my x-ray results to me, told me my options, and we went from that. What I liked most about him, is he did not rush in, quickly gave the results, and then dodge out of the door. Bedside manners to me is a "priority" and Dr. Harrington earn this rating.
Glad that I found a great Doctor to help with my 15 year old knee replacements that are starting to go bad. Not only was Dr Harrington highly professional, he gave me hope for my "future" knee surgeries.
It was good i like the fact that he takes time to listen to u. And The Staff are awsome! I would defintely recommend him to anybody.
Dr. Harrington was excellent. He explained things in clear terms and answered all my questions thoroughly. He has a terrific bedside manner. You will immediately feel you are in good hands...and his credentials...they are beyond reproach.
