My father had complicated cardiology problems while in the hospital two years ago. Dr Harrison was highly recommended, so we requested he see dad. His bedside manner was excellent. He explained the situation in terms dad could understand. Dr Harrison put him on medications that help him to this day. I've been a nurse for over 25 years and I could not have been more pleased with Dr Harrison.
