I have been seeing Dr. Harmston for approximately 20 years. He has always been very professional and personable. He puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable. Answers any and all questions you may have. I’ve had good experiences each time I’ve seen him for my colonoscopies.

Amazing experience!
Who would ever guess that a colonoscopy could be a "good"experience? Dr. Harmston and his team where absolutely the right balance of keeping the environment light and professional. Not enough stars to taste the experience. He was great.

One of the greatest!
I have been seeing Dr Harmston since June of 2015 for end stage liver disease. He has been one of many that since that time has done what he has so I can still be on this earth today. Dr Gawlick and Alonso are two other of many that were also there. Over these years of seeing him in the office, performing a Colonoscopy or my daily visits during many lengthy stays in the hospital this Doctor, but more an inspiration to me, has been someone I owe endless gratitude to for his bedside manner and exemplary care for me. I get emotional when I think of you and the rest of the Liver and Cancer teams that have done so much for me. As you know it was not an easy road. Thank you for putting up with my stubbornness and fight but it was a fight for life, for my family and future. Thank You Dr Harmston for this, and the clean bill of health last week.
