What People Say About Dr. James Harms, MD
Reply
In spite of his dark sounding name, Dr. Harms seems only interested in helping. My teenage daughter was very nervous following X-rays showing a slight curvature of her spine. We saw Dr. Harms to consult on these X-rays. He was very thorough, respectful of my daughter's intelligence and modesty, and clear in his recommendations and explanations. Grateful for his experience and manner. Recommended!
