38 Patient Reviews for Dr. Harrington

"Along with the aorta valve replacement a 5.5 cm aneurysm on the aorta was also removed. There were complications of severe inflamation caused by rheumatoid arthritis and medications which had to be considered prior to and during the surgery. Dr. Harrington exuded such confindince and made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. Even after the surgery she came by sometimes late at night and checked on me. I'm doing great."

"Dr. Harrington has been amazing. This was my 2nd open heart surgery. I had a few complications but she got me threw it. Dr. Harrington answered all my family's questions and kept them informed. This was a tough time not just for me but them also. My daughter said Mom I had lots of questions and she answered every one of them. The care I received was amazing. "
