Dr. James Harrop is very considerate and answers all your questions. I have been going to him for years for a degenerative spine.. Considers all options available in managing your health care needs.

Dr. Harrop performed neurosurgery on my seriously injured son. He sustained massive spinal fractures, an incomplete spinal cord injury and brain injury. Dr. Harrop is not only one of the best in his field, he has great bedside manner!
Cranbury, NJ |
Top notch surgical skills mixed with decent patent interaction. Dr. Harrop is no nonsense and very talented at what he does. For this reason he's very busy. He spends enough time to care for you, but be prepared with your questions, because otherwise he'll be in and out before you can think of things. Overall, top notch and healed my problem completely. Talented and therefore someone I could trust. Highly recommended.
