“I relate to patients by thinking of them as family members. Dealing with patients on a personal level and asking a lot of questions helps me recognize their specific needs.”
Dr. David J. Harrington is an Obstetrician/Gynecologist at the 260 Cochituate Rd, Framingham location of MetroWest Physician Services where he practices general obstetrics and gynecology. His special clinical interests include female incontinence, urodynamic testing, related surgical procedures and medical management.
When treating patients, Dr. Harrington believes it is important to keep the information on a patient level so they don’t feel overwhelmed or confused with technical terms. “I ask my patients a lot of questions to fully gauge their understanding and empower them to make decisions about preventive care or other treatment options.”
Dr. Harrington’s practice spans from the treatment of women before, during and after pregnancy to and through menopause. "Obstetrics is a very happy and exciting area of medicine. The frequent ob visits builds a unique patient relationship and there is nothing better than seeing the joy in the parents’ faces when they hold their baby for the first time.”
When focusing on pre- and post-menopausal women, Dr. Harrington has learned that precautionary actions are crucial for women going through this change. “This time is a great opportunity for women to take preventive actions, like exercising and eating a healthy diet, to take care of themselves and improve their overall health.”
After receiving his medical degree from Brown University, Dr. Harrington completed his residency at Hartford Hospital in Connecticut. Along with his experience as a physician at Norwood Hospital and as a Women’s Healthcare Specialist in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Dr. Harrington was also commissioned in the United States Military and served as the Chief of Gynecology and the Director of Outpatient Clinical Procedures at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. He is a fellow of the American College of OB/GYN and a member of the New England Obstetrical and Gynecological Society.
