This has been an excellent experience from beginning to end. He and his staff engender confidence and trust. Every interaction with staff, from the front desk, to the Med Techs and Lauren, APRN, was offered with respect. Dr Harris, performed a medical procedure with explanation, appropriate medication and showed me the results and gave me a good explanation of the reason for my previous symptoms. And since the procedure, i have been symptom free. The follow up visit included daily holistic practices to keep healthy. I am very grateful for his expert and kind care.

Dr. Harris is wonderful. He's easy to talk to and is straight up about his prognosis. My diagnosis was not as pleasant as I had hoped, however his prevention plan has made the transition easier. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a Urologist.

If you have any urology issues, I strongly recommend seeing Dr. Harris. He is friendly, compassionate and very very thorough. As a bladder cancer survivor, I feel he has saved my life, and he has kept a very close eye on me. I am grateful for him and his very good care.

I have been a patient of Dr. Harris for three years as a prostrate cancer survivor. I have found him and his staff to be very attentive, courteous, and professional. He has attempted, and succeeded, to work with my specific, and somewhat unique, needs and schedule. He answers my questions and explains in clear terms what options are available. I would recommend Dr. Harris without hesitation.

Been a patient since 2012 after growing dissatisfied with (my now) prior urologist. Dr Harris & the staff have been amazing and at 65 i have undergone a few procedures all with amazing attention from him and the staff. I have recommended numerous people to him and every one of them has been glad. Wait times are almost never excessive, he explains things thoroughly and in emergency needs, he's seen me quickly. I have only positive things to say about him and staff. Will never go to anyone else.

My husband and I are both patients of Dr Harris and have been since 2012. Our experience has been excellent. My husband was treated for prostate cancer and I was treated for bladder cancer at the same time. We are so thankful to have found a doctor who made this time so much easier for us. At one time we were at the office three times in one day and the office staff, and the nurses couldn't have been more helpful and caring. Anyone being treated by Dr Harris will get the best care possible.

This doctor was unavailable, changed appointments and then fired my father after my father finally asked his PA for instruction since the doctor was never available. He is rude, and violates physician conduct through patient abandonment

This man is beyond excellent. He has helped me with many problems, most importantly when he diagnosed my Prostate Cancer. He set up a treatment plan, got me into Radiology the same day for a consultation with 21 Century Oncology to set up treatments. And after 1 year under Dr. Harris' care and guidance I am cancer free. When he explains what is going on he speaks in such a way that you totally understand what is happening. I am 74 and never have I had such trust and confidence in another doctor.

In the last 5 visits, trying to resolve the same issues we have been working on for over a year, I have only been able to see the doctor ONE TIME, the 1st time. Then I was handed off to a P.A., then a different P.A., then a technician, then the 2nd P.A. again. The 2nd PA assumes he is doctor and recommends procedures, meds (which nearly killed me ), etc. When I take the time to see a doctor with major issue, want to see my doctor. Doesn't happen here.
