Do NOT schedule with this Doctor!
I had a terrible experience right out of the gate. I kept getting emails about the visit but never got a clear direction on how to join the tele-health waiting room, etc. So the day of, he calls me sounding clearly annoyed at me for something I was not directed correctly to do. So we get in to the video visit and right out of the gate he's clearly not patient or understanding. He starts asking me to detail my previous diagnosis (which I have no issue at all and can have the records sent over asap!) but I was not told to have the record available, still not a problem. As we walk through my trail and tribulations of mental health, he questioned every medication change, or reason for why I stopped meds here, there or shoot, why did he ask me about when I was 6? He made me feel like I didn't know my body. I ended it with in 15 mins in. He's rude, aggressive and mean! Do NOT go here!

Dr. Harris did a great job with our situation. He went above and beyond, even working with us while he was on vacation to solve some paperwork issues.

Zero stars!!!! Beware!!! Worst doctor I've seen in my entire life. Totally and utterly incompetent. I've seen a few bad doctors, but this one takes the cake. Absolutely horrendous. Waste of time and money. Didn't address any of my concerns, requested unnecessary testing not related to my concern (and also not covered by my insurance, without telling me.) Additionally, horrible with his "office staff" as he has none - bad scheduling, and bad communication. You have been warned, do not see this practice. You'll most likely come to regret it. Seriously. Don't come here. Go somewhere else.

He was great for close to a year and then completely changed. Refused to do ppwk for me to return to work without several heated arguments via the phone. When he decided he would he thought my employer/ 3rd party would take a hand written letter (not letter head) calling me by my first name. Completely unprofessional. Unresponsive to his ‘portal’ etc. Due to his antics he cost me 3 weeks salary before I was able to return to work. I won’t say see him or not...use the info above to make your decision.

I would recommend him to my family members, he takes the time and asks the questions my other doctors didn't.

Prior to meeting w/ Blayne Harris I asked if he perscribed my specific medication, he indicated that he did. In adition I asked that my doctor not push unnecessary perscription drugs on me. Unfortunatly Dr Harris had his own agenda and tried to force me into taking unnecessary medication, he also decided that I be taken off my regular treatment program. Also, he's non responsive to refills & rescheduling (needs in general). He's extremely rude and agressive. I did not feel safe or cared with this person. Absolutely would NOT recommend. I found a wonderful new doctor & so will you.

If you have no options then yes go see him. No bedside manner and nearly impossible to get ahold of. Does not appreciate questions when you ask about medications. Dismissive. Come here if you truly just want to go in and get some pills and leave without having discourse.

Very difficult to work with, unfriendly, rigid and inflexible mentality about treatment plans, assumes the worst intentions in his patients. Would often double-book his patients. Does not listen, assumes he already knows. Each appointment feels rushed. Would recommend anyone but this doctor.
