Today was my first visit with Dr. Harris because of our health system changes daily and he was the Dr. I chose. He took his time listened, answered questions and I was very comfortable with him. My fiance' went to him last week and said he was happy with him also. For a first time experience it was a positive one.

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.

Dr. Harris was friendly and knowledgeable. He listened to my health complaints and ordered the necessary tests to treat them. The wait time to be seen in the office was reasonable and his staff was friendly and polite, especially the nurse I saw on my first visit.

I felt a bit hurried for a first visit. Dr. Harris was very nice, professional, he had studied my file from Dr. Millin.. I hope to have a bit more time to ask him about some problems and pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Harris.
