I was very pleased with Dr. Harkness with my recent surgery. I went through a difficult time involving several specialists, tests, biopsy, and then surgery over a period of several months. At each step, it became more complicated and I was finally sent to him at the Hope Women's Cancer Center in Asheville, NC. He was excellent. I was anxious and really worried, but my doctors that I knew well all confirmed he was the best. He listened, and it was the best experience all the way. Wonderful Doctor

Waynesville, NC – Jan 31, 2017
I accredit Dr. Harkness 100% with my mother's death.Diagnosed with reoccurring breast cancer that had metastasized. He prescribed a treatment that was ineffective-when questioned about it was very combative. My mom went on vacation and had to be rushed back home - it had spread everywhere which he had missed on the last scans. Bedside manner at the hospital was horrible. The few times he saw her, he was very insensitive to her. In the 10 days my mom was dying in the hospital, he rarely saw her.
