Delivered with her as she was on call cross covering for my regular provider. I found her unhelpful when I called during the on call hours in labor. She was cold and didn't appear to care at all during the actual delivery when I was struggling. Didn't let my husband cut the umbilical cord (and if there was a reason for that, she didn't tell us). Overall not a good experience.

Cold and unhelpful. Was sent to doc Harris on a referral after months of being uncomfortable. She never explained what she thought was going on despite me asking. She threw different medications at me without a thought about possible side effects. Upon asking questions- she simply told me she didn’t know what was wrong with me. She even questioned my symptoms. Every time I left her office I was in tears.

Sadly, I do not recommend Dr. Harris. I’ve been an “easy” patient for years. At my last annual, I shared that I was divorced and dating a new partner. She made comments such as “I was running out of time” and I should not waste time and get pregnant with the person I had been dating for two months. I left feeling extremely deflated and worried about having children. I told her I was not going to get pregnant from a new partner and she was extremely dismissive. I’m only 35.

I suffered for over two years with a problem that my gynecologist just couldn't figure out. We tried so many different treatments and nothing worked. Finally my gynecologist referred me to Dr. Harris. She took one look at me and immediately diagnosed the problem and she started me on a steroid ointment. Two months later I'm 95% symptom free! I would highly recommend Dr. Harris, I know I will never go anywhere else! Thank You!!!

I had a gynecological issue that lasted over a year and a half. I truly believed there was no hope. My regular OBGYN gave me a referral to Dr. Harris in November of 2016. I started seeing her and finally in May of 2017 she helped clear up my issue. I am forever grateful for Dr. Harris's dedication and attention. She is wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone needing to see a specialist. Thank you for giving me my life back!

I was referred to DrHarris when my md could not find a solution to the constant pain I was experiencing. It was effecting all areas of my life. DrHarris immediately made a diagnosis w the right medicine to end my nightmare. She continues to be my md and I lead a normal,almost pain-free life because of her -expertise.
