Dr. Harris listens to your concerns, takes great care in explaining and guiding you through your care.
Sarasota, FL |
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.
in Sarasota, FL |
I was very impressed with him and liked his sense of humor. He seemed very knowledgeable in many areas. I think I will keep him around for awhile.

He covers all your systems before running tests. Does not like to do any unnecessary tests. He then has you come back to see him to review results and gives you copies to take to Dr up North.

Knowledgeable doctor, but felt hurried in the appointment, like on a time clock.

Dr Harris has a quality lacking in most physicians; he listens to what you have to say, and never rushes you. If anyone asks me for a pcp recommendation, I ALWAYS send them to Dr Harris!!

in Sarasota, FL |
David Harris was referred to me by a co worker when I first moved here to Sarasota. I had previously had the same family doctor who took care of me, my mother and both of my aunts for as long as I could remember. It was scary changing doctors. Dr. Harris made me feel comfortable from the moment we met. He explains everything completely and addresses any concerns you may have. I felt as if he had know me my whole life after my second visit. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!
