Patient Comments (2)
in Waco, TX |
He asked me questions that I did not know how to answer. He was curt, impatient. He flipped the slides, and if I did not respond immediately, he was again curt, impatient. When you are looking at two blurry slides, it is not easy to choose. He repeated instructions several times, as if in were a child. I said that this wasn't working and told him his bedside manner needed some work. He said I could leave. He wrote that I was combative to his staff. Not true. I only had a problem with him.

Dr. Harkins is really one of the best doctors out there. My son had a scary and rare eye problem and he saw him very quickly and went out of his way to do extra research for us and explained everything to ease our minds. He did extra leg work to arrange a hospital stay and necessary tests for my son and I absolutely recommend him. He was definitely sent to us by God in our time of need last summer!
