Our visit to see Dr Harris exceeded our expectations. In today's medical environment we didn't expect the level of professionalism with compassion that this doctor delivered. I would not only recommend him but his office (Tina for one) to all my friends and family. Truly an exceptional experience. Job well done, very well done. Thank you. Scott and Angie

I have been a patient of Dr Harris for several years. He is an excellent and caring doctor. His staff is very helpful to his patients. They are very courteous and respond to phone calls immediately. I would highly recommend him as a physician.
in Cape Coral, FL |
The staff was caring and very very kind. Dr Harris was also kind. Overall a very pleasant experience. The only very upsetting thing was not being put to sleep before being wheeled in for a colonoscopy. Very hard not to feel humiliated. No fault of theirs, just found that a bit traumatic. Thank you to the staff . They were super comforting.

He puts his patients at ease so they feel very comfortable in his presence and when a procedure is to be done there are no worries because I have always felt that when Dr. Harris is with me that I have the very best Dr. that I could have. And his staff have always been very courteous and helpful.

in Punta Gorda, FL |
Overall, I am very happy with Dr. Harris - both his skill level, staff and as a person. One thing though - the waiting room at the surgery center is a noticeable step down from his offices.
in Cape Coral, FL |
Dr. Harris is very knowledgeable and skilled plus he is a kind and caring doctor.
in Fort Myers, FL |
Have had a few problems with digestion over the years and Dr. Harris is great. He takes time to explain the steps in finding out what could be wrong, and options best for you. He never seems in a rush to get in and out of the room, then asks to make sure he's answered all your questions. Also, the online portal is helpful and saves time. I think this is a great medical office.
in Fort Myers, FL |
Dr. Harris was friendly, informative, professional, and obviously a very competent physician. I enjoyed my appointment with him and have full confidence in his diagnostic abilities and recommendations.
in Bokeelia, FL |
Very good - he listens to my concerns and we agree on a plan of action.
in Punta Gorda, FL |
Dr. Harris listens and offers valuable information and recommendations. However, I have left his office frustrated because after the 15-20 minute meeting, he disappears without asking Do you have any questions? I keep thinking he is going to come back, but he doesn't. He sends in a tech to schedule your procedure and you don't speak to him again. I was disappointed that my scheduled procedure was incomplete, and I had to call his medical assistant to get this worked out.
in Cape Coral, Fl |
He is a very good and caring Doctor
in Cape Coral, FL |

Dr. Harris took the time to answer my questions and concerns. He did not rush through our appointment, as so many doctors nowadays do. I like the fact that we discussed what is right for me, rather than some cookie-cutter solution. He has a very relaxed demeanor, thereby putting his patients at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Harris based on my experience with him.
in Cape Coral, FL |
Dr. Harris and his staff attended to our immediate needs with extreme knowledge and an outstanding ease of mind attitude that my son would obtain the best care for his chronic GERD. I highly recommend this practice if you are interested in high caliber treatment.
in Cape Coral, FL |
Who wants a colonoscopy anyway? If you HAVE to have one I highly recommend Dr Harris! The wait was short and the office staff were absolutely fabulous! They all took their time. It didn't feel like a conveyor belt like most md offices in this region! Dr Harris was very warm and polite. Put me at ease quickly after meeting him. Very down to Earth. The surgery center staff was awesome as well. I was in and out in less than 2 hours! See u all in 5 years!
