    Have had a few problems with digestion over the years and Dr. Harris is great. He takes time to explain the steps in finding out what could be wrong, and options best for you. He never seems in a rush to get in and out of the room, then asks to make sure he's answered all your questions. Also, the online portal is helpful and saves time. I think this is a great medical office.

    Dr. Harris listens and offers valuable information and recommendations. However, I have left his office frustrated because after the 15-20 minute meeting, he disappears without asking "Do you have any questions?" I keep thinking he is going to come back, but he doesn't. He sends in a tech to schedule your procedure and you don't speak to him again. I was disappointed that my scheduled procedure was incomplete, and I had to call his medical assistant to get this worked out.

    Dr. Harris was recommended to me by my primary doctor. I felt very comfortable with him even though he had "bad news" to give me at my first appointment. Dr. Harris is very thorough, keeps timely appointments, shows concern to his patient......... you aren't just a number with Dr. Harris!
