41 Patient Reviews for Dr. Harrington

"I am only 40 years old and had to have my aortic valve replaced. Dr Harrington made me feel comfortable from the initial consultation in her office. She explained everything 100%. After meeting with her, I had my valve replaced the next week. She is simply amazing. I would highly recommend her. She answered every question that me and my wife had and made the bad situation that we were dealing with as pleasant as possible."

"I am so thankful that I was referred to Dr. Harrington by my cardiologist. Her skill in the minimally invasive surgery to replace my aortic valve was the best. Her after-care was attentive, constant, kind, and informative. She was in to check on me every day and multiple times a day for the first 3 days. All of the questions my family had were answered with kindness and respect. I saw her for my follow-up visit and she showed how pleased she was with my progress. I'll never forget what she said: "Now go and live life to the fullest!" As far as results, I feel better than I have in years. Had she not operated when she did, I would not be here to make these comments. Thanks Dr. Harrington!"
