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.

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.

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.
