Dr. Harris is a doctor’s doctor. He is extremely well trained and a proficient surgeon. Simply outstanding. He has repaired both of my knees (several years apart), and on both occasions my recovery was quick and complete - as good as new. I recommend him without reservation.

Excellent orthopedic surgeon! He repaired my torn rotator cuff and had me in physical therapy the next day. I cannot say enough good things about this doctor. If you want the very best of care and a very specific physical therapy protocol, this is your doctor. He will see that you get results and return to your daily routine. A++++=

Dr. Harris did both my left rotator cuff (12-8-05) and my right rotator cuff (6-18-09). Excellent recovery. Dr. Harris had me in therapy within 22 hours from both surgeries. My Pastor told me he was having rotator cuff surgery and I immediately prayed his surgeon would be Dr. Howard Harris! AND he is. I have referred many friends to Dr. Harris because of his expertise in shoulder problems. They have all thanked me. I am blessed. Ann B. Kelley

Dr. Harris did shoulder surgery on me. He inserted 2 screws, reattached the tendon, sewed up the rotator cuff and sent me to physical therapy the day after the surgery. What impressed me the most was how the people at physical therapy praised Dr. Harris. Because of my age the healing has been slower than I would have liked, but I now have no trouble and have greater range of movement than on the other shoulder.
