I recently had a CT Scan and my PCP recommended I see Dr. Harris . From the moment I entered his office I felt at ease. Dr. Harris explained thoroughly the results of the scan and what needed to be done. He drew an illustration to help me understand what needed to be done. I felt comfortable with his care and the surgery procedure. Throughout the entire surgery and hospitalization I was secure and knew I had the best surgeon. An excellent doctor and person Thank you

Simply wonderful, and the staff too! I had to have a procedure, as stubborn as I was initially declining. I was glad i eventually did...he was very patient. His office staff today post-followup were simply amazing too. I had to just share this!

I had emergency gallbladder removal and Dr. Harris was focused, sharp and patient in describing the process. He answered my questions and those of my husband. He has an easy bed-side manner and was able to earn my confidence.

Last week I had a bilateral hernia operation with Dr. Harris. My operation was far from a simple one; it took almost 5 hours. It was an extremely complicated surgery but Dr. Harris performed it with no complications. He took the time before and after the surgery to talk with me and make sure I was doing well. Every time I had a question, he and his staff were there to answer them. This was such a big hurdle in my life to overcome, and I am blessed to have had Dr. Harris perform the surgery.
