This was my first visit to this provider. He was recommended by a family member's physician. I was very happy with my choice. It was a routine first visit, however, at the time I had a sinus infection & received medication for it, infection cleared in a few days.

Dr Carrington is the greatest!roomer did not use 2 identifiers, which she should have; nor did she review my meds. perhaps that's not her role. only asked if I used alcohol or illegal drugs. also did not identify herself to me - I had to ask her name. nor review my meds

Scott and staff are great as always. But, this last visit felt rushed due to pressures from changes with new office standards and procedures. I really like my doctor but when office management begins to interfere with my access to him, it angers me. If I wanted cookie cutter services I would just go to any doc-in-a-box... But I chose to start and build a "better healthcare partnership", I searched doctors and found the healthcare partnership I wanted with Dr. Carrington. I hate to see that diminish because of some stupid structure study.

Dr Carrington and I discussed how I was going to step down my warfarin and substitute the substitute med. that was prescribed by the cardiologist before I have the scheduled procedure with the urologist. Coordination between the different specialists was very enlightening and helped to eliminate any concerns I had.

As always Dr. Carrington was highly engaged, easy to talk to, and a true professional. I feel fortunate to have him as my primary health care provider.

The offices he refers me to never call, don't know if its their office or his not following through

Reviewed on January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

We love seeing Doctor Carrington, the frustrating part is calling the office and never having a person answer, always having to wait for a call back...even when calling for an appointment and I think that's ridiculous. Someone should at least answer the phone to help you make an appointment, even if that person is in a general office and not in the specific doctors office. The clerk's at the desk outside Doctor Carrington office always seem understaffed when we arrive in person so I can understand why they can't answer the phone also, but I think the medical group in general should dedicate some staff to answering calls for appointments rather than patients having to leave a message and wait for a call back.

My visit with Dr. Carrington was great. He is thorough and listens well. the only concern I have has is that I have left messages about test results and scheduling appointments and have had a hard time because I haven't received calls back.

Dr. Carrington is easy to have a conversation with and does not rush through the visit. He is genuinely concerned about any medical issues that are brought up during the visit.

Dr. Carrington is everything I think a doctor should be. He listens, he is observant, and he seems very intelligent.

The only problem I had with my visit was a communication problem between the office and the lab area. Apparently, they don't both share the same computer system, so they (the lab) didn't have some of the information I requested them as part of the blood work. Fortunately, Dr. Carrington was able to update my records so they were able to complete the blood work. I would like to see this corrected.

Reviewed on May 28, 2018 7:00 PM

Visit was routine. Dr. willing to discuss anything I brought up but did not do what to me would be basic checks previous doctors have done without my having to ask, such as oxygen levels, basic vision, throat, glands, and ears. Even though I have provided background history of tests and inoculations, they ask these questions even tho they should have the answer in front of them. Most importantly, he also did not consult chart history for any tests I might be due for like osteoporosis and/or colonoscopy, nor follow up on previous concerns. In other words, if I didn't bring it up, neither did he, If I had a concern, he seemed to be more apt to refer me to someone else--a "specialist"-- rather than treat condition/problem himself. However, in all fairness, I have moved to city recently and have only seen dr. 3 times. And he has been very good with my husband.

I have only been to one appointment with this provider so far, I am a new patient there because the doctors office I was going to closed. I was definitely looking for a good place to go that cared a lot about there patients and there needs. I like this new provider Scott Carrington a lot. The first time I met with him for this appointment he took the time to listen to me so I could let him know where I stand as far as my medical stuff goes. He didnt rush me at all he just sat there and had a conversation with me so we could both get on the same page. This is an excellent provider I think so far and hopefully it will stay that way. I would without a doubt recommend this provider to other family, friends, and people around me!
