Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Harsh was easy to talk to. He explained , thoroughly, the surgery to be performed. He is compassionate and has great bedside manners. He never appears rushed and make you feel as if you are his only patient. I would consider him an excellent surgeon - based on my family's experience with him...more

He performed c-5--c-7 discectomy/fusion and later carpel tunnel release for me. I trust his expertise and he also did surgery on my mother. Both of us were pleased.
