    Non-caring when confronted with my botched surgery he performed. Would not admit that problems do occur(as anyone can discover via cases on internet)and that the lap surgery he performed on me for hernia most likely caused the constant pain I am in by catching nerves in the mesh. He became arrogant when I questioned him about maybe this was the cause of my constant pain. He was terrible in his response stating he never had a problem and that I was wrong in even questioning possibilites

    Dr. Harris was able to explain the procedure in a calm reassuring manner for a lay person to grasp. I was left with a feeling that the outcome would be successful and the recovery would be swift. I found Dr. Harris to be a caring and considerate and a pleasure to converse with. A fine Doctor and a great man.
