    I am writing to let everyone know how disappointed and heartbroken we were with Dr. Harter' s care. His office is disorganized and frankly doesn't seem like they care about patients in the least. We cancelled our son's surgery with Dr. Harter because I don't think that my son would receive good post operative care. They couldn't get their act together to send me pre-op information. I had to call time after time to get any type of information without any luck. I'm not impressed with Dr. Ha

    Dr. Harter performed a risky surgery by performing a subtotal resection of a JPA tumor growing out of my 12 year old daughter's brainstem. He managed to get out more tumor than anticipated and caused her no neurological deficits. I didn't trust any other doctor but him and I got many opinions. There were many doctors that deemed her tumor inoperable because of its location. He spent a lot of time answering all our questions and was very honest about possible outcomes. His hands are blessed!

    I am utterly thankful and blessed to have had brain surgery completed by Dr. Harter. I was very recently diagnosed with ganglioglioma in the right temperal lobe of the brain. Dr. Harter had been completely helpful and has considerably spent a lot of time with my parents and I before my surgery procedures to make certain that we understood the circumstances. He is incredibly kind and never gives you the feeling that he is just your surgeon, but also a friend who is willing to hear your opinions.

    would not even see my son because his avm was on his foot. then sent us to nyu referral nurse line who referred us back to the same group. How can you call this compassion care, when my son is in pain everyday and doctors who refuse to help a child.
