What Our Patients Have to Say...
Dr Harrington is a fantastic doctor with a realistic approach to treating patients. He is straight forward and honest which I appreciate. I've the past 10 years he and his staff have always made me and my family feel like a priority and always provide phenomenal service and care. His level of personal touch and care is second to none. – G.D.
Dr. Harrington is our family doctor, truly a remarkable man and fantastic doctor. I couldn't recommend him highly enough. - R.W.
We love, love, love Doctor Harrington. He truly is “My Family Doctor!” The whole family - wife, son and myself - have been seeing him for years. He has a great bedside manner with kids - he is absolutely fantastic with our six year old. As an adult, you can expect genuine warmth and an experienced and highly regarded physician who will never “talk down” to you. He’s also been fantastic about squeezing us in for last minute appointments and has actually taken care of my son one time even after office hours. I cannot rave about him enough. Sometimes while driving by his office, my son will ask if we can just stop by to say hello!
Dr. Harrington really cares about the people he treats. My whole family lives him, young and old. I love his extended hours and friendly office. - J.L.
Dr. Terrill Harrington, of My Family Doctor, is perhaps a doctor from a different time. Remember the days of house calls and when business were a part of the community? This small doctor's office hidden away in West Seattle creates a feeling of being taken care of. Dr. Harrington is personable, and goes out of his way to be available. He is by far one of the best Doctors in Seattle. – K.C.
I have known Dr. Harrington for more than two decades - he is both my friend and my physician. The glowing positive comments posted about his professionalism come as no surprise to me at all. Because of my personal relationship with Dr. Harrington I know why he went into family medicine - he did it to help people. His service to his patients in this community are not just his vocation… this is his dream. He considers it a privilege to be a trusted resource to his patients and to the West Seattle community. - M.L.
Dr. Harrington is a solo practice doctor who goes ABOVE AND BEYOND when it comes to his patients. Twice in recent months he offered to go in to his office on a Saturday to see me. In fact, the first time it was on a three day holiday weekend when I threw out my back. He takes his time and doesn't rush. He is very thorough and very thoughtful. I have never seen or heard of a better doctor. Almost every single doctor I have ever had could learn a lot from Dr. H and his bedside manner. – S.E.
Great place. Went here tonight for an ear infection b/c my regular doc's office couldn't fit me in today. Reception was very nice, office is very clean and nicely finished, the doctor was very nice and I got in and out fairly quick even though the waiting room was busy. - A.C.
Dr. Harrington is so great. I have had bad experiences with doctors in the past. I don't like going, I'd rather deal with the pain. But I was in almost unbearable pain from my shoulder hurting, and another urgent care clinic didn't help at all. Dr. Harrington was exactly what I love in a doctor. He was very approachable. Asked great questions. Owns the clinic and really takes an interest in you as a person. He took the time to explain EVERYTHING. And the why behind it all. LOVED it. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. He really knows his stuff. – K.M.
So I'm one of "those " guys who NEVERS goes to the DR and have the worst anxiety about new dr offices. This office is FANTASTIC! The front desk lady Bee was so cheerful made me feel right at home. Office is old fashion has a very small waiting room. The exam room was clean and the nurse was friendly. I have an awful fear of needles and she got me in one shot! The Dr was worth the really long wait he had some kind of emergency. – R.L.

I just (as in 20 minutes ago) had the MOST amazing experience with Dr. Harrington! I had a nose bleed for two days straight and my regular doctor couldn't see me until tomorrow. I was trying to suffer through the misery, but when I started to get shaky, I decided to walk the half a block to his clinic. I could tell they were getting ready to close and was preparing to get turned away (which has happened to me at other urgent care facilities), but Colleen at the front desk took great care of me. She got me water and LOTS of tissues, she offered to help me fill out my paperwork and she listened as I explained the extra long version of what happened. Dr. Harrington saw me within TEN minutes of my arrival, which is unheard of at any clinic I have ever been to, even if I have had an appointment. Dr. Harrington asked good questions and really worked to understand what had happened. Then, he led me to the procedure room and cauterized both nostrils. Finally I had relief from the non-stop nose bleed!!!!! He wrote me a prescription for the underlying cause and gave me some samples of an ointment to use in my nose. Dr. Harrington even encouraged me to take my anti-anxiety medicine tonight to help me relax! What a thoughtful man. On top of everything, he asked me to come back for a follow-up tomorrow evening FREE of charge. I will venture to say that this was hands down the BEST experience I have ever seen with emergency medicine for me or any of my family members! What a wonderful feeling to know that good medical care is less than a block away. – C.W.
Wonderful doctor and staff. Went out of their way to help my son when he cut his thumb in a kitchen accident. Even stayed after hours. Would definitely go there again! – J.B.
My family Doctor is this cute little family practice in west Seattle independently run by Dr. Terrill Harrington. What makes this place so great is the fact that the entire family may be seen here for all sorts of issues including dental. The doctors are caring and give you a warm family feeling. Doctor H is great with my children and Dr. Brun handles our dental needs. The office is very small but they take care of all our needs! They can squeeze you in for an appointment same day, the doctors return phone calls promptly, and they have a friendly staff! Couldn't ask for more! – S.L.
Dr. Harrington is the perfect combination of knowledge, common sense and approachability. He has been our family Doctor for about 6 years now and not only has he quickly and efficiently remedied any problems, he has saved us thousands of dollars in healthcare costs. Getting appointments is easy, especially for emergent issues - his evening office hours are very convenient. (I almost didn't write this review for fear of him becoming too popular - but by the way I see him doing the laundry late at night or working on the building on the weekends I know he will rise to that occasion!). – C.L.
We were dealing with a second-degree burn that happened after 5pm, meaning every urgent care clinic in our immediate area was closed. I didn't want to wait hours at the ER, so I found Dr. Harrington online and decided to risk it. Excellent decision, as it turns out! The receptionist was lovely and welcoming from the moment we walked in. We filled out paperwork and were taken back immediately, and had to wait all of five minutes before Dr. Harrington came in. He was friendly and knowledgeable and we were on our way with the necessary prescriptions. So much cheaper, easier, faster and friendlier than an ER trip! – E.G.

Went in with an ear infection, and though it took a couple of appointments for the right antibiotic combo, I was informed by the doctor and his staff that I would not be charged for the extra visit, was given plenty of samples to help offset the cost, and Dr Harrington was more than willing to talk over the phone and write the prescription I needed. He and his staff went to great lengths to be as helpful as possible. This is a great place to go, especially if you don't have insurance. - A.Z.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Harrington for about 3 years. Our son was born a couple of weeks back and so we were in a position to decide if we would continue with him. It was an easy decision as we’ve felt that personal connection and have been more than satisfied with the level of care and attention to detail that we’ve received. Our family has added Dr. Harrington to the list of things we love about West Seattle. - T.W.
I love Dr. Harrington! - C.P.
We take our daughter to Dr. Harrington and have been very impressed with his kindness and attention to her. There is no rushing, we don’t feel like we’re just another parent on a list and he answers all of our questions with thoughtfulness and professionalism. I highly recommend him and have referred many people to him for a great overall family doctor. - L.L.
I bring my family to see Dr. Harrington. I would recommend his office to anyone who’s seeking a new family doctor. He has a beautiful little office tucked right here in West Seattle. On many occasions I’ve called and been worked in the same day. You never feel rushed. Dr. Harrington has the perfect bedside manner that is now days hard to find. He has a way of making you feel like you’re his only patient. I can’t say enough. :)
We moved 140 miles from Seattle, but continue to see Dr. Harrington as our family physician. We feel his skill, compassion, integrity and cheerfulness is second to none. When you are in his exam room you feel as though you are the only patient he has. Through the years he has become a trusted friend as well as physician. He is like the small town Physician of yesteryear, only right here in West Seattle. You are truly blessed to have him in your community. E.Y.
My husband and I have gone to Dr. Harrington and we really appreciate the fact that he does take the time to answer your questions, we never feel rushed. I generally never have an issue getting an appt. when I need one also, which is great. - West Seattleite
Over four years ago, my husband and I randomly picked Dr. Harrington from a list of docs; we have since had many occasions to be grateful for our luck! After the birth of our son I suffered from complications and Dr. H actually came by the house to check on me. A couple of years later, we asked Dr. H to assist with the birth of our daughter. His office has always been able to get my family in for urgent care (once late at night for a violent allergic reaction) and are friendly and professional. We’ve recently moved to Vashon Island, but will keep Dr. H as our family doctor. His friendly, one-on-one care is worth the ferry ride many times over. Thanks, Doc! - Vashon Mom
