Patient Comments (1)
in Garden Grove, CA |
I've had three surgeries with Dr. Harness and all of them were really excelent. My only scar is not noticeable and he is an expert in preserving the breast shape. He is a professional who cares about his patients and gives each one all neessary and punctual medical follow-ups. I thank God for placing a professional like him in charge of my surgeries. .
