Dr. Harrison's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Harrison "I am native of New Jersey but a Texan by choice. (Ok, I married a gal from Texas, enough said). I am an active member in my church, a community volunteer, husband and father to three sons. My goal is to combine my sense of humor and high surgical skill level to bring a fresh, cutting edge approach to plastic and cosmetic surgery in East Texas. I am in private practice which means patients always see me, the Doctor, not a PA and it is a bit like how going to the Doctor used to be, personal. I also received the "Texas Super Doctor" award in 2004, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017. I am also a Realself Top Doctor award winner for many years. My interests include cycling, tennis, reading, travel and body surfing. "
