Can’t believe how long the lines are. I read some reviews that said they had to wait 4-5 hours in line but that seemed like an exaggeration.. Until of course I had to wait for 4 hours to be seen by the doctor. Not only that, once I got to his room he was rude and belittling. What a waste of my time and money.

When my doctor told me that I may have appendicitis and needed to have surgery I was doing everything not to go to the hospital. Even ignored it for a few days but the pain got so intense that I found myself driving there instead of work one morning. Didn’t book an appointment or anything even though my doctor said I should. Went there and was in so much pain, was in no position to wait so I went to the er.

The receptionist looked at me with concern and asked what was wrong. I told her I needed appendicitis and then passed out from the pain. When I woke up I was in an er room with a doctor, a surgeon and a team of nurses surrounding me, talking in hushed tones to one another. When they saw I was awake the doctor calmly explained to me that I in fact needed appendicitis and needed it urgently because it’d already gotten bad. I didn’t argue and realized they were prepping me for surgery.

I never knew what that meant before, only heard of it in movies but it was good. Not just the prep but the surgery too. The doctors and nurses were very kind and sympathetic towards me. They knew how scared I was and did everything to keep me calm. After the surgery they recommended I undergo some post surgery rituals that really helped with the recovery and I was out of there way before anticipated which was good. I give Harrington a 4 star rating (taking away 1 star because I didn’t like the parking area). Everything else was perfect here.

Pretty shitty experience. Not only did it take me forever to see a doctor but their speaking tone with me was very harsh .
And on top of that they said I needed surgery even though I went to another hospital the next week and got their opinion..
they said a surgery was definitely unnecessary and that I should consider suing.. in my condition getting a surgery would’ve been bad.
Bad hospital, considering suing them.

If you’re worried about C sections or have any questions about it go to Harrington. I was considering the birthing center here for weeks and finally went for it because my other option was 20 more minutes to drive. Chose the closer one and even tohugh I had my doubts throughout, by the time I gave birth I was happy with my choice.

They told me I needed a C section when I came to the hospital after having consecutive contractions. I was worried sick about the effects a C section would have on my body, not just physically. But the OB was so nice and soft spoken, it made me feel confident with my choice and I am not regretting my decision even a little bit.
Big thanks to the great birthing center at Harrington Health Care System for being the best place a gal could give birth at.

Can’t deny how advanced they are with their equipment.. it’s all state of the art.. great strides towards greatness and any hospital that adapts to this is in my list. Their commitment towards patients is the second reason I love them. Great service, they don’t treat anyone differently, no discrimination, nothing. Felt very comfortable going to Harrington and would do it all over again.
