Patient Comments (1)
in Santa Cruz, ca |
Dr. Harraher quickly and accurately diagnosed my husbands' very serious condition. We were very lucky that she happened to be visiting another patient in the hospital while we were in the E.R. She performed an intricate and delicate surgery with great success and answered all of our questions patiently and thoroughly. A bonus (as ultimately skill, knowledge and experience are of utmost importance when seeking out a neuro surgeon) is that Dr. Harraher also a really nice person.
