Preformed a right hemicolectomy, removed complete small colon, 11 lymph nodes and appendix. surgery was flawless, aftercare excellent, 10 weeks later scar has faded very nicely and am now going back to work. All the nurses and Lab techs told me how luck I was to have him and they were correct!

Dr. Harris is by far the best doctor that I have ever had. He is a consummate professional who puts the patient's health first. He literally saved my life as my appendicitis attack quickly escalated into something far more severe. I will forever be indebted to him for literally saving my life. He is upfront and truthful with a bedside manner equal to no other. I consider it an honor and one of the highlights of my life to have gotten to know him. Thank you very much.

If you need surgery ( no one really wants to need surgery) Dr Harris would be my choice! He made a scary diagnosis much less frightening!!! Would have been much harder for me if he hadn't been so reassuring!
