My husband had his hip replaced August 2017. He was excited about the anterior approach, and it was the best thing that ever happened to my husband (except for me) ha! He was down,at home 4 weeks, back to work in 5 and has never looked back! Excellent surgeon/staff and rehab personnel.. we could not be more pleased!!

He is hands down the best. I had two partial knee replacements done. Both healed up really quick very little pain. No scars at all. Highly recommend him.

Dr. Barrington is absolute the BEST in his field. I went to see him with a case of AVN that no other specialist had diagnosed. While visiting with him and going over the MRI of the affected hip, he took his time with me in the explanation process. This was a surgery that caused me to have so much anxiety but Dr. Barrington talked with me dispelled my concerns. The surgery was extremely successful! Final Outcome for me was a complete success. Life is back to normal! Thank you Dr. Barrington!

Dr Barrington is the best in my opinion. I have had complete replacements on both knees and both hips. That was over 5 years ago and the surgery and rehab could not have gone better. He and his staff are very kind and caring, they go the extra mile!
in McKinney, TX |
Never had a better doctor. Ever Dr Barrington is highly skilled. Has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever known and I am an RN who has known and worked with many doctors in my lifetime. He has patience, kindness, warmth. I am flying 2,000 miles to have him do my surgery because I don't want anyone else to do it.

Dr. B is the best, I was scared to death to have my hip replaced due to bone on bone arthritis. I consulted with three other Dr.'s before deciding Dr. B was the right one. I am only 50 years old and had my surgery 8/2015 with no complications and no pain at all after the surgery, I was up and walking the day of surgery and went home the same day. Cannot say enough good things about having this procedure with this amazing Dr.

My Mom had a hip replacement done by Dr. Barrington. He is a great doctor, friendly professional and competent. Mom recovered quickly. CON: Be prepared to wait at least an hour for your appointment. Even when the waiting room was empty we waited that long and more.

Dr. B is great and knows how to make knee shots painless. Unfortunately most of his office support staff from scheduling & billing to 1 of his nurses are terrible. Staff did not get pre-approval for my series of 3 shots before I showed. Staff could not follow CIGNA billing instructions. I rescheduled and then 3 hours before apt got a terse call from Nurse Cratchett asking when I could be there. I jumped in car only to wait 45 minutes without seeing the doc. My time is valuable too #XPAT

Dr. Barrington did two partial knee replacements for me. Other doctors had told me I needed my knee replacements for years, but a partial was never mentioned before. At his office, I had the most thorough set of X-Rays I have ever taken. He also takes the time to explain things and will literally draw you a picture if you need one. His entire staff is friendly and courteous. I have never felt rushed or like I was bothering them. Minimal scarring and I no longer walk with a limp.
