    Dr. Harris was NOT my doctor, Dr. Keith did my procedure. Everything was done in a professional matter. I was in and out in no time with full explanations of the findings and to follow up in 5 years.....I could not be happier and would recommend Dr. Keith to all my family & friends. Also a phone call follow up a couple of days later was very appreciated... Regards, Peter J. Bochnovich

    Highly recommend Dr. Harris. What I anticipated would be a complex and complicated experience, turned out to be very easy. The support staff was just excellent. The entire process was simple, everyone was very communicative, all the questions were answered with confidence and comforting responses. I was just very pleased and there were no negatives of any kind.

    Dr. Harris was very professional as well as personable. I felt at ease when he first walked into the examining room when I met with him to talk about the procedure. Then on the day of the procedure I appreciated that he came into the procedure room before the test to see if I had any questions and how I was doing. Then after the procedure he came to the recovery area to let me know what the test had show. This was very much appreciated. Not having to wait for a phone call.

    I probably spent 30 seconds awake with the man and maybe a few more afterwards, not sure I remember the last one all that much. I guess I'll be back to see him in 7 to 10 years if all goes well. Knock on wood!!

    I was dreading my colonoscopy. I'd had one 12 yrs previous. But, I was pleasantly surprised. The prep was so much easier. All "over the counter" products were used in the prep. The day of my procedure, the staff was very friendly and efficient. This is a rather embarrassing procedure to be sure. Yet I was made comfortable and put at ease. Dr. Harris was wonderful. Looking back, I don't know why I was apprehensive. I would recommend Dr. Harris and his staff to all of my friends.

    I had a colonoscopy several years ago. It was extremely painful and I had a lot of anxiety about having another one. Dr. Harris was very nice and assured me I would not feel anything and made me feel at ease. The procedure was quick and I did not have any pain. Dr. Harris saw me after it was done and said everything was fine.
