Dr. Harris is a very caring, and personable doctor, who, when I had office visit, spent time with me, like a doctor should. I am a retired nurse, and I would recommend him to all, and count it a pleasure to work for him.
in Cape Coral, FL |
Overall okay. Would recommen My experience was good. When I first entered the facility I was doubtful. The reception area was not what I expected. The chairs are very uncomfortable and I was not acknowledged when I arrived. I had to go up and check that I had been entered as having arrived. There were several others ahead of me. Once the nurse saw me, I felt better. I had trouble with the prep and was concerned with that. The nurse that prepped me was very kind and gentle. Great personality.
in Cape Coral, FL |
As far as this procedure could go, this was very good. The only thing I may enter is if your forms direct you to go to a facility at a certain time, then the place where it tells you to go should be the place where the procedure is going to occur. Not a block down the street! Especially before 6:30 in the morning.

Dr. Harris and his team were wonderful in working with me and my schedule to set my appointment. Everyone involved with my procedure was effective, efficient, and caring. the procedure was on schedule, and I was released early after a full explanation of the results and with documentation to take home for later review. The office followed up early the next morning to make certain I had recovered well, and the information was provided to my primary care physician quickly. Thanks!

in North Fort Myers, FL |
Great bedside manner, very easy to talk with. Don't know why he prescribed ranitidine 150 that cost me with insurance $48.50 for 60 pills when Walmart sells it for $4.00 for 65 pills. I asked the pharmacist after I realized this and was told no difference between the 2 - I said except $40!

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.
