Besides his surgical expertise, he seems concerned for his patients concerns; answering questions pleasantly. Even though orthopedic surgery is another day at work for him, it is new to me. He treated me with dignity and respect. He has been knowledgeable, pleasant and friendly.

I had a hip replacement June 2016. I went back for my one-year check-up recently and can say I am so happy with my new hip. Dr. Harris and his entire staff are the best!

Dr Harris and his staff were great! They answered all my medical and insurance questions. They also did a fine job on my knee.
Thank you Mark for your kind words! Best wishes, Sarah

I have had both hips replaced within 6 months of each other and am so pleased with the results. Dr. Harris is great and I have referred a couple people to him already.

I've been seeing Dr. Harris for a couple of years. He's treating me for a future THR (hip) and TKR (knee) replacements. 14 years of football from elementary school through college have finally caught up to me. We both know I will eventually need replacements but he isn't pushing that option. He is treating the current symptoms and helping me be as "normal" and discomfort free as possible at this stage.
Hi Sam, Thank you for the kind words. I will be sure to pass along this information to Dr. Harris and his team. Best, Sarah

Dr.Harris has been my orthopedic dr. for about 8 years now. I have had a partial knee replacement in both knees and he was always caring, and very willing to work with me. He is a patient, kind and considerate man and I have yet to meet a doctor quite like him. I am getting ready to have one of the replacement parts in one knee repaired and feel that I will get along fine. I trust him and never went from the beginning to another dr. for a 2nd opinion. He is the best! Sue Luter, Richmond Va

I've had both my hips replaced by Dr. Harris in less than one year and each time he was very professional, friendly and courteous.....as well as his nurses and office staff. I started with injections then on to joint replacement surgery. I didn't even bother with getting a second opinion, that is how much I trusted him. I would highly recommend Dr. Harris for joint replacement.
in Quinton, VA |
I was referred to Dr. Harris by my Primary Care Physician for hip pain. They took X-rays on my hip and Dr. Harris went over the X-ray results with me thoroughly. He took his time with me and made me feel very comfortable in asking questions. The office staff was very friendly and courteous.

There is something off about the office. Everyone has a bad day, but each time I return or I have contact with them my experience keeps getting worse. I broke my ankle and was referred by the emergency room. I liked the convenience and location to my house and decided to give the ER doctor's recommendation a try. The initial check-in staff were not very pleasant people and were kind of on the rude side. The medical staff did the bare minimum, was very uncaring, and never returned phone calls

I went to Dr. Harris for a 2nd opinion for knee surgery and decided to have him do the surgery.
