Dr. Harper has handled our son Landon’s cancer case extremely well. He has been my son’s oncologist for three years now. He is knowledgeable and thorough. He has been with us through the worst time in our life and I’m glad he was.

Dr Harper has been extremely communicative and giving throughout the process of our son being diagnosed with a rare cancer. His supporting staff and peers are also wonderful. It was shocking news to learn of our boy's illness but we are confident in the next steps and care from those at Children's.

Seems permanently too busy to discuss or clarify questions. He makes you feel that your child is not very important for his busy schedule. A little arrogant and careless. If we called, it is hard to get in touch with him and once we did, he almost hang up on me telling me he is very busy and he doesn?t have time to discuss my case? Disappointed of his attitude, just to put it in an elegant way?! He might be professionally OK, but as character he is?low (again to put it in an elegant way!).
