This was my first appointment with Dr. Barrington. I was recommended by my PCP Carolyn Ellis after having some episodes of fainting. Dr. Barrington asked about the reason for my appointment, explained the treatment options and test results as well as the recommended course of action going forward. He was extremely attentive and respectful when talking with me. He also discussed his follow up with Dr. Ellis regarding my treaplan.

I am always impressed with the care and attention provided by Dr. Barrington, which is why I'm willing to travel to Shadyside from Washington, PA for my appointments. I trust him completely to advise me and treat me in the best possible manner for my caridac issues.

Dr. Barrington is an extraordinary physician. He extremely knowledgable, caring, and proactive. He really listens to his patients, never talks down to them, provides sensible guidance, and ultimately makes decisions using the patient as a participant in the process. While he doesn't overprescribe tests, he is more than willing to accommodate patients who feel a certain test would be useful for purposes of reassurance. He is exactly what physicians should be today--a partner in the patient's care. A wonderfully warm and nice man who works very hard to provide the best possible care for his patients.

Best experience I've ever had with a doctor. He was genuinely concerned about my situation and addressed my needs.

11/30/2017
Dr. Barrington explained the heart procedure I need in a thorough and detailed way no one else ever has before. He made me feel at ease enough to actually schedule it, after seeing three other doctors and putting it off for 10 years! He also made sure every possible question I had was answered before he stood up to leave the room. He was very understanding about what a nervous patient I am!

11/30/2017
If possible, I would give Dr. Barrington a 15/10. He really listens and addresses your concerns. I feel very confident with him and trust him to give me the full picture and direct me in health care decision making. If possible, he wants to know the FULL picture as to what is causing the problems and fixing it, not just relieving the symptoms.

11/27/2017

Dr Barrington is what every doctor should strive to be!

10/18/2017
Dr. Barrington is excellent and I feel I am in the best hands with him

10/9/2017

10/4/2017
I love the entire staff. everyone is awesome.

9/21/2017
This is not my PCP, but a specialist. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Barrington--I've never had a better doctor care for me. He listens extremely well, is unbelievably patient with questions and explanations, friendly (and even warm), and clearly knows his stuff. I brought my daughter to see him years ago for a problem that four other physicians couldn't figure out and he was fantastic with her. Many years later he even remembers meeting me at that visit. And I'm getting the same extraordinary care from him that my daughter received.

9/20/2017
Doctor was very well prepared for our visit, had obviously studied our history, and was very patient,very knowledgeable, and a delight to talk to. Would certainly recommend Doctor to friends and family!!
