Patient Comments (1)
in Gallman, MS |
I have no personal experience with Dr. Harkey, but he performed brain surgery on my mother in November of 2014 to remove a tumor. IMO, I think he could've done a better job cuz B4 the surgery, she was able to walk and talk normally, and use her right arm, and after surgery, she wasn't. I hate that my mom has to put up with having Aphasia the rest of her life.
