Dr. Harmon was AMAZING!!! He was everything I needed in a surgeon I can’t say how highly I recommend him to you. His staff was also excellent in every way possible. There in no scar at all on my face and my cancer is gone.

Excellent physician and surgeon. Dr. Harmon is a perfectionist and I would not trust anyone else to perform Mohs on my face. Have had several cancers removed and no visible scarring. Amazing work.

Absolutely horrible experience. Dr Harmon has awful bedside manner, does not explain anything & left me with a large, very visible scar (even though he got on first round). My current doctor says my scar not usual for MOHs. I would highly recommend avoiding this doctor. Would never let him anywhere near me or anyone I care about again.

I recently had my 5th or 6th Mohs procedure for skin cancer removal from Dr. Harmon. He is the only Doctor I would trust with my skin. I have been seeing him for close to twenty years, and he is always professional and attentive to my questions and concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Harmon to anyone who would like the best dermatological care possible.

Dr. Harmon as a doctor did a fantastic job with my Mohs procedure. You cannot even tell I had the procedure unless I point it out. However, his bedside manner is lacking. I became very anxious before the procedure, and instead of reassuring me, I was made to feel like it was weird that I was feeling anxious. I ended up feeling like I was putting them out. Then, on my follow-up visit, I waited over an hour and didn't even see him (nor a PA or NP). Definitely the oddest office I have ever been to.

Dr Harmon did a great job on my MOHs surgery on my face. I think it will heal very nicely. Staff was nice and have adequate instructions on the post op care. The only reason I can't give more stars is because of the wait time. I had to wait over and hour and a half just to go back for my appointment and then even longer at my follow up (2 weeks later) - ridiculous!! Clearly they are over booking him. They should have a day where they only see follow ups only.
