Love Him

I love this guy. Definitely the best and most accessible Doctor I have had in years. He never makes you feel like he is rushed, and he is very kind and takes time to listen. I have referred a ton of people to him and they all love him too. I just wish he would cover the hospital rather than use the hospitalist service.

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Carrington.

The best thing he does is treat you like a partner in your health. I don't like being talked down to or treated like I shouldn't help make informed decisions about my care. I have never felt that way with him. Great Doctor. Wait times SUUUUCK there though...bring something to do. Staff upfront and on the phone is either adequate or crabby, never exceptional, but worth the wait and the so-so service up front to see Dr. Carrington.
