My husband has been going here for about 2 1/2 months after having to have a super pubic catheter done in the ER , due to prostate blockage. Since then it has been impossible to get through to the office leave messages they don't return calls, the receptionist informed him he shouldn't be getting any kind of shots in the office yet that's the " therapy" the Dr. said would be the best for his cancer at this stage . She was going to talk to nurse & have her call us back, no call again very disorganized, run office system I've ever seen . You call and all the machine says is leave a message, not it's a Dr office what their hrs are they're out to lunch nothing. NOT impressed! If you can't depend on the staff to get messages chances are the Dr isn't getting them so there's a problem especially if you feel you should be seen right away due to infection or complications!

Dr. Harrigan is an amazing physician! He worked with my schedule, got me in in a great timeframe and performed my surgery with care and excellence. His post op instructions were very helpful and minimized my discomfort. His prescription for my meds was spot on and they worked great for me. He was available to answer questions after my operation and was very attentive to me. I drove almost an hour to visit his practice and it was well worth it! I would highly recommend Dr. Harrigan for any Urilogical needs, he is the best around!

I have been a patient of Dr Harrigan for many years and have found that under any circumstance Dr Harrigan will completely explain the situation in terms that you can understand and if you still have questions he will answer anything you ask.

I recently had a vasectomy performed by Dr. Harrigan. He has a very calming demeanor which was greatly appreciated. He answered every question I had at my consultation in a very easy way to understand. During the procedure he warned me when I would feel pain. The procedure took about 30 mins and we just chatted the whole time like we were at a coffee shop thats how relaxed he made me feel. Couldn't recommend him enough to anyone looking to get a vasectomy! Front desk people are very friendly

I received my vasectomy from Dr. Harrigan on Thursday, July 13th., & I honestly have to say it was COMPLETLEY free of any discomfort! Leading up to the procedure I was letting my friend's stories of past vasectomy experiences get to me. Happily I can say that Dr. Harrigan is a true professional & master of his craft...I HIGHLY recommend him for this procedure!

I am very thankful that I was referred to Dr. Harrigan early on in my diagnosis for prostate cancer. I elected to go with cryosurgery and it was totally successful. I have been cancer free now for 5 years.

Dr. Harrigan immediately went to work on my symptoms that several other doctors didn't want to address. He promptly began treating me and changed my life completely. He listened to me and respected my thoughts, and has been excellent in my ongoing treatment, which has been over 5 years now. Very nice to have a kind doctor that respects the patient.

'm extremely pleased with my experience at Dr. Harrigan's office. Due to my insurance (Medicaid) I could not find a doctor in Colorado Springs who accepted medicaid for a vasectomy. When i called Denver University they referred me to Dr. Harrigan's office. Dr. Harrigan's staff was polite. The procedure itself was painless, Dr. Harrigan was professional and talked me through the procedure. I highly recommend him. What i thought would have been a painful procedure, wasnt bad at all.

Had a vasectomy last week. He was friendly and very quick about performing my procedure. I was in and out in less than an hour and it was relatively painless.
