I came for a second opinion thinking a hip replacement was in my near future. Turns out I was misdiagnosed and I don’t need ANY kind of hip surgery! I am so thankful for Dr. Barrington’s expertise and the time he spent explaining the source of my pain.

I have the utmost confidence in Dr Barrington. He already did a partial knee replacement on me and I am very pleased with the outcome. Therefore I have complete trust in him and his staff.

Dr Barrington has performed two surgeries on me and I have been very happy with the results of each. He is very professional and explains exactly what he is going to do prior to the surgery and once again afterwards. He has a great bedside manner, takes time to say a prayer with your prior to surgery, and genuinely cares about the well being of his patient. I am a patient and cheerleader for life!!!!

FANTASTIC. Dr. Barrington changed my life for the better. He replaced my left knee last year and after having my one year checkup today I can say it is great. Hiked a 3 hour challenging hike which was impossible before. Will probably be ready to replace the right knee next year. He is also a very friendly nice man.

Amazing!!! He is the most caring, informative and professional Dr. I've ever experienced. He replaced my wife's hip and now she is pain free and has her life back. From Dr. Barrington to the rest of the staff they are hands down the best.

I’ve had one hip replaced by Dr Barrington and have just scheduled the next hip. I am traveling from my home in Washington to Texas because I only want him to do the surgery. He is extremely skilled and has the kindest bedside manner of any doctor I’ve ever known. He’s absolutely wonderful!
