Hands down the best pediatric ENT. He’s put tubes in two our sons’ ears, with ongoing routine follow ups. So easy to work with, very gentle, excellent with children. He is clearly very intelligent, but also just a good, kind person.

We've only been to him once, but Dr. Harkins is hands down one of the best pediatric doctors we've ever been to. He was great with my 6 year old daughter and really listened and gave us valuable information. I would recommend anyone to him, he is truly top-notch.

Removed adenoids for our 9 year old daughter. Best results!! Our girl had no pain at all which was shocking. Even next day! We were told adenoids were big. We even didn't have to give her Tylenol! Best results we could hope for - thank you Dr Harkins!

My son had his ears tubed, tonsils and adnoids removed. Dr. Harkins and his staff made everything possible from insurance pre certification to scheduling my sons surgery asap due to its urgency. I've called numerous times during the day and at night and I've received immediate response from the nurses and the doctor on call. Dr. Harkins and his staff have always been courteous and attentive.
