What People Say About Dr. Fredric Harris, MD
RecentMost Helpful

I may be one of Dr Harris’ oldest patients - dating back to the 1980s - and my husband is a more recent patient — from 13 years ago to the present. There is no doctor or surgeon more competent, thorough, meticulous, kind and caring than Dr Harris. His knowledge and experience are impressive, and he goes above and beyond where most doctors go to make sure his patients have gotten the best care possible. He not only saved our lives, he made us feel like it was personally important to him to do so.

Dr. Harris removed my gall bladder. Everything went perfectly and I now feel much better than before the op. Dr. Harris's incisions are the smallest possible (they were admired by other doctors) and my recuperation time was the shortest possible. Dr. Harris is knowledgeable, kind and competent.

Dr. Harris is an amazing, competent and highly experienced surgeon! I recent had major surgical procedure with a great deal of complications at White Plains Hospital. Dr. Harris made me quick realize I was with the best team to get through this! My sincere appreciation and gratitude to Dr. Harris and his A-Team for my very special care during this incident.
