Went for a simple outpatient procedure, still in rehab 1 month later. Went in to get stitches removed, sat in waiting room 3 hours in a wheelchair. Could not get answers as to what happened. Over books, not sensitive to patient need. Very disappointed!

After 2 visits and him never introducing himself, a weak handshake, taking 3 weeks to get the 2nd appointment (bc the staff never answers the phone), to be charged a co-pay to get my results then another co-pay to see the Dr who would actually do an injection, I requested my file and will go elsewhere for an injection. Let’s not forget the staff member steadily eating at her desk while she’s dealing with me.

I was amazed that I called on Monday, had a MRI scheduled for Tuesday and appointment with Dr. Harrod on Wednesday. It was the second time his PA was able to correctly assess my problem before Dr. Harrod even came in the exam room. Keepers, both of them!! Very very satisfied with all of B&J staff! A well-run operation which focuses on the patient! Excellent!!

Dr Harrod is an excellent surgeon. I can’t thank him enough for performing my spinal fusion. He was very thorough when explaining my condition, treatment options, and treatment plan. I’m a veteran and I have Medicare. I know he didn’t get paid much for doing my surgery but he did a grade A job. I would recommend him to all my family, friends, and strangers.

Dr. C. Harrod is a brilliant surgeon, he did surgery for a pinched nerve on my spine, I had numbness in my hand, finger with my leg giving out sometime when I walked, Dr. Harrod, stated everything that my body would do with this pinched nerve, everything he stated to me I had already experienced without my telling him anything about my back or leg where the problem was. I recommend Dr. C. Harrod neck, back or cervical spine surgery

I would not recommend this doctor to treat a dog. I was referred to him by another orthopedic doctor. I had to wait 3 hours to see him. All he did was dictate on his dictaphone and rushed through it. He was talking so fast that my husband and I couldn’t understand what he was saying. He never explained anything. All he he did was write a note for me to give to the referring doctor. I left that left that office clueless. I will never him again!

Dr. Harrod fixed a very extensive back problem that should have been done by another surgeon twelve years ago. He corrected the problem and alleviated my pain and I will be forever in his debt for doing his job to the best of his ability. If all surgeons were as dedicated...there would be less patients using opiates to manage the excrutiating pain left behind after inadequate judgement calls. He was totally honest, respectful, and dedicated to fixing the problem. Great office staff.

A prior surgery by another doctor did not give any relief to left leg pain that was bad enough to keep me from walking or standing for more than 10 minutes. And I used to run marathons and wanted to be very active in retirement. Dr. Harrod performed surgery and I can now jog / ride a bicycle. He gave me my life back. The only negative is that he is typically ran 60-75 minutes behind schedule but he is absolutely worth that small inconvenience.

Waited over 1 1/2 hours and doctor spent little time with us. He was never clear in the treatment and changed treatment without explanation. A horrible experience and the vet does a better job at treatment and communication.

I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my back and neck problems. Dr. Harrod is the absolute best there is! I have a cervical spine fracture, and he has answered all of my questions and has always fit me in to his schedule if I’ve had any concerns. Not to mention he’s extremely knowledgeable and personable. He and all of his staff are just outstanding.

Before visiting Dr. Harrod my pain level was so great that doing any activity was impossible. After lower back surgery I am happy to report my pain level is 0. I have my life back now. Through out pre-surgery, surgery, and follow up visits, Dr. Harrod continues to answer all my questions and concerns. He and his whole staff are a delight to be around. Every day I realize that all the pain is gone and I'm getting stronger I'm thankful for my doctor.

Dr Harrod is a miracle worker! I had my first scoliosis surgery in 1979 & a second surgery in 2013, both by different doctors. I was still in chronic pain. Dr Harrod operated on me two months ago and I feel better than I've felt in decades....truly. I can stand up straight for the first time in years. My pain has decreased significantly. If you have flatback from the Harrington rod I wholeheartedly recommend that you get an appointment with dr Harrod at BR bone and joint clinic
