He is brilliant and caring. He takes your history into account and is always concerned and looking out for you. He does not hesitate to also confer with doctors within the practice and around the Country. His staff is also incredible. Words cannot describe what a remarkable Doctor he is. You do wait sometimes, but he is worth the wait and it is because he spends time with his patients.

Dr Harris is a sweet man. But he gave us false hope with my husbands Colin cancer. He used the term "in remittance" prematurely and gave us false hope. His Personal nurse is a cold unfeeling woman who neglected to return my calls. Dr Harris was our last hope. He led us down the wrong path and finally said"I do not know what else I can do for you".....devastating!!!!! He is only human..., he failed us after giving false hope. He wanted to heal.... but wasted our last months together.

Consistent wait times of 2 hours in either office. Patient to MD time < 10 minutes. MD did not perform chart review prior to discussing case with pt, pt had to throughly explain prior abnormal labs in brief 10 minutes. I had to continuously repeat myself in the exam because the MD was not even paying attention to what I was saying . I am in the medicinal field myself with my Doctorate degree and this was the worst experience I have ever had.
