Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Poor bedside manners and the office environment seems off. The staff was rather rude as well. The doctor did not do the due diligence to read my file before talking with me and made me get the same blood panel work done that I had already completed a month ago (costing me $300). Glad I was able to switch to another OB.

Dr. Harrington has been a wonderful doctor to me over the years. I respect her so much my parents now go to her also. She can be matter of fact, but I like that so I know what she is thinking or has ruled out. She has a great sense of humor, is very knowledgeable, and really cares about her patients. My parents speak highly of her also. Fantastic doctor.

First time I met her, liked her direct approach. Seemed to listen and care. Terrible at following up on issues raised though. On following visits she was curt, rude and had the audacity to ask "why are you here?" As if I was a nuisance When I was feeling horrible, medical wise. Not an empathetic or compassionate person. Yikes.
