I would give zero stars if possible. I waited in the waiting room for over an hour. They had two other patients. I then waited in the exam room for a morbidly obese nurse to come in and verify all my info. One hour later, Dr. Harms came in and listened to my heart, said I had a heart murmur, completely ignored the fact that I knew about this and scheduled me for an EKG. After the visit, I needed everything faxed to my employer. It took them six weeks to fill everything out completely.

I started seeing Dr. Harms out of convenience, his office was about 2 mile from my place of employment. I am on a medication that I need to see a doctor once a month for follow-up and being in the car business I needed a doctor close to work, due to never having enough time off. I changed dealerships and manage a store 40 minutes each way from him but I would not even think about changing doctors. Dr. Harms is well worth the 2 hours of driving once a month to keep him as my doctor. I rate him A+

After waiting for 2 hours, Dr. Harms walks in the room giving me a dirty look as if I was bothering him. Never met the man in my life. I was there for a physical for employment. He was judging my diagnosis and my own doctor, who is into internal medicine. He is smart and kind. This doc didn't even say hi, bye or......well you know the rest. I will never be back here again.
Dr Harms and his staff perfectly paired knowledge and compassion. As a registered nurse. I appreciate the care he provides and have recommended him to others.
