I saw Dr. Barrington in 2016 after I was told by a different physician that I would need a complete knee replacement. I felt I needed a second opinion, so when I heard from a friend of my husband’s that he had had knee replacement surgery by Dr. Barrington and raved about him, I made an appointment. When I saw Dr. Barrington, it turns out I did NOT need a complete replacement, but only a partial replacement. That was a good news day! Dr. Barrington takes all the time you need to understand your condition and what he would do to correct it. His personal support staff have been with him for quite a while and they work well together. I recently returned to his office to get an injection in my other knee which will eventually need the same surgery. If you are concerned about scarring, my scar (just like my husband’s friend) is almost indiscernible. If you have been told you need a knee replacement, it is in your best interests to get a second opinion with Dr. Barrington.

Dr. John Barrington is an excellent Orthopedic Surgeon with a great staff. His “bedside manner”, best I have ever experienced! One year hip replacement check up revealed great healing. Easiest surgery, little pain, best recovery of any surgery I have had! Happy, happy happy...so grateful!

Doctor John Barrington is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He is concerned about the overall health of his patients that affect their hip, knee, and shoulder joints. He knows the patient's health is directly related to their diet. After his surgeries most scars will slowly disappear.

He is a great doctor but you have to block out the whole day! I waited over 2 hours and finally left without being seen. Office staff is great as is his medical assistant. The doctor does not care if he makes you wait’

Dr Barrington is one of the finest most thorough doctor I have had the pleasure to have as my surgeon He has all bases covered in a very complex procedure - a knee replacement. The surgery was without any complications in a patient’s view. I had excellent after care from Rehab and physical therapy to availability of medical team if necessary for follow up questions and explanations. I am very pleased after a year of healing. I would highly recommend Dr Barrington and his team. I might need my other knee repaired or replaced and will use Dr Barrington again. Thank You Dr Barrington! You Are The Best Susan Ellis

Dr. Barrington replaced my hip seven years ago and did an amazing job. I have never had a physician give more attention and information. He truly does care for his patients. Because of his skill, knowledge and desire to help others I have my life back. The pain that never ended has subsided. Thank you sir I shall always be grateful.

Amazing bedside manners! Office visit was thorough and revealing of all issues that cause my knee pain and he explained well in layman’s terms. I’m optimistic about my upcoming treatment/surgery. He had me convinced when he told me hed recommend same treatment if he were treating his mom. I trust and have confidence in him.

I was impressed with the overall courtesy and helpfullness of the entire staff. From step one, everyone put my needs and concerns first. They sought ways to make my visit easy and profitable to me. Dr. Barrington showed he was more interested in my problems than he was in profiting by stretching my care into additional visits.
