Dr. Harms is one of the most caring physicians I have ever met. He takes time to listen to you and even calls you back. In regards to his staff, BJC hires them.

I would recommend Dr. Harms however his office staff are the worst to deal with. I feel sorry that a doctor has to deal with such incompetence. Trying to get someone to answer the phone is a challenge at this office and then the hold times are crazy.

I call his office anytime of the day and get a message that the office is closed. It doesn't matter if it is 9am, 10am, 2pm or 3:30pm, the message says the office is closed. It makes sense now why Dr. Harms gives out his cell number. The office does not follow through. I am still waiting for them to Fax results to a Dr. 10 days later. How long does it take to send a FAX? I saw Nurse practitioner Denise and she was great. Needs new office staff. Can only schedule appointments online.

I don't like the fact that when I'm on hold, I'm on hold for up to 25 minutes at the most. It's rediculous, or the fact that I drive 15 minutes to get there for them to close early. I went there around 3:45 and they dont close until 4:30 supposedly. This isn't the first incident for that. Also went up there to find the door still locked after lunch and they forgot to open it. Other than that the doctor and his nurces are great.

Dr Harms is knowledgeable and caring. He took the time to listen to all our questions and is working with the other drs. However, his staff could not be ruder. They changed the appointment by an hour, but didn't contact us to let us know. After nearly 45 minutes, I asked how long they expected the delay and was curtly informed that the appointment had been changed, meaning we had another 30 minutes to go before potentially seeing the doctor. No sorry, nothing. Inexcusable.

When I needed to see him the first time (I suspected I had strep) his receptionist told me they could not get me in until the following week. The next time I asked for an appt I saw his PA which was fine but a week later I was seriously ill and needed to talk to him or make an appt. It took 3 full days and 4 messages from me to return my call. I ended up at urgent care. What is the point of a dr if you can never see them? Not to mention the fact that the receptionist was not pleasant AT ALL.
