Ratings for Dr. Scott Carrington
When I went to make an appt with Dr Carrington's office, they said that since I had not gone to him in three years that I was a new patient and he was not accepting any new patients. I asked them to see if he would still see me and he said that he would prefer I find another doctor. SO I am leaving that practice all together. I DO NOT recommend Dr Scott Carrington.
Scott is a great Doctor in my opinion. He has helped me with many ailments and I have never had an issue with him missing a diagnosis. Sorry to hear about the others bad experience. I will say that he is a very busy Doctor and for good reason. He is a great physician and in high demand.
Dr. Carrington is a nice person, but I have had a similar experience regarding an upper repiratory infection. When I saw him I had been feeling miserable already for a couple weeks, very sore throat, drainage, pain in ears, low-grade fever, etc. and from having the same symptoms in previous years, felt I needed an antibiotic. Dr. Carrington wouldn't give me one and said I just had a cold. The next day after work I saw a different doctor at an after-hours clinic, and was diagnosed with tonsillitis and sinusitis. He gave me two medications (one was a strong antibiotic) and recommended that I have my tonsils removed as soon as possible after recovering from the current infection. I am now a year post-tonsilectomy and have not had an URI reoccurrence since surgery.
Not impressed with Dr. Carrington. I have had sinus infections every winter for 20 years. Because of an insurance change, I had to change doctors and got Dr. Carrington. When I saw him, he lectured my on the overuse of antibiotics and said he wouldn't give me one. Only after it turned into bronchitis and I saw another dr was I given any medicine. Very frustrating since I had a newborn at home at the time and was trying to stay healthy so she didn't get sick!
I have OSF insurance. Dr. Carrington is a nice man but totally missed the fact that my adolescent son had pneumonia. He did not even bother to run a chest x-ray after the kid had been coughing non-stop for two weeks. A specialist figured out the pneumonia when we went in for allergy testing. He heard the chest "crackling" right away. A pharmacy tech at Walgreens also told me that Carrington missed a fungal lung infection that he had and he almost died. So, Dr. Carrington needs additional training in handling lung related issues, it appears.
