Dr. Harris listens carefully as well as explains. But what is most important, he assigns usually very effective wide range of treatments from drugs and diet to physical exercise and life style.

Like an above unfavorable review he also with me spent all of my six mo. visit looking at his computer scoffed at my questions and the visit lasted less than 10 min. I think he is no longer interested in his work. Bruce Pitzer, Sarasota

Both my husband and I have had very negative experiences with this provider. His head is buried in his computer the entire time you are with him. He rarely looks at you and has a poor "bedside manner". He is arrogant, spends little quality time with you and I would not recommend him to anyone. I have worked in the medical professional industry for over 30 years and I think it is time for this physician to retire. He does not like his job.
