Dr. Harrington

"I found Dr. Harrington to be a very pleasant, personable and professional in her demeanor. I would be happy to allow her to work on my heart again (God forbid I ever need it again), and highly recommend Dr. Harrington."

-- Vernon Todd, Mitral Valve, Valve Replacement, Median Sternotomy, 09/13/2019

"Dr. Harrington was nothing short of fantastic. While I had known for a few years I would need to have surgery to repair an ascending aortic aneurysm and aortic valve replacement due to my bicuspid aortic valve, when the time came and I found myself at only 40 years old it was no less scary.

Dr. Harrington walked me through each part of the process, and even spent time with my wife and I on the Thursday before the surgery to ensure we were prepared. The surgery went flawless, and the care I received throughout my time at the Heart Hospital in Plano was second to none. I would fully recommend Dr. Harrington and her team to anyone if you need to have this type of procedure.

Now at five weeks post surgery I am feeling great, I am in cardiac rehab feeling , and returning to work thanks to Dr. Harrington will have many years ahead of me to enjoy my family."
