St.  James Parish Hospital is extremely excited to welcome a new Gastroenterology Clinic to its growing list of independent, specialty clinics. John Harrington, MD, brings an impressive resume to the St. James Parish Community.

Dr. Harrington earned his medical degree from the University of Mississippi Medical School. He completed an Internal Medicine Residency at Tulane University School of Medicine and a Gastroenterology Fellowship at Louisiana State University Health and Sciences Center in New Orleans. Dr. Harrington is a member of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and a Fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology. In 1999, Dr. Harrington partnered with Dr. Christopher Barrilleaux to open East Bank Gastroenterology which still serves patients through active practices in Metairie and Laplace. 

Board Certified Gastroenterologists Doctors Harrington and Barrilleaux provide expert and painless outpatient endoscopic procedures and treat common gastrointestinal disorders such as reflux (GERD), colon polyps, diverticulitis, ulcers, irritable bowel, liver disease, Crohn's disease and colitis. 

“East Bank Gastroenterology has proudly served the River Parishes for over 15 years and we look forward to extending coverage to the St. James community through a local clinic,” said Dr. Harrington. 

Dr. Harrington will see patients every other Thursday from 8:00am to 12:00pm at David Reynaud Medical Plaza located next to St. James Parish Hospital. To schedule an appointment in Lutcher, call 985.652.1126 or 504.456.7484.
