I had been treated for asthma for years. I felt that I should be feeling better after three years with the pulmonologist that was treating me. I then got another name of a pulmonologist from my general practitioner. I went to him and found that he ran some tests, but also supported asthma as my diagnosis. He also never changed my medication, so my condition remained the same. I mentioned this to my ENT specialists. She recommended that I see Dr. Harris. I went to my appointment with Dr. Harris and was immediately very impressed with him. He was very knowledgeable, thorough, and professional. He had me get a CAT scan. He then informed me that I had a lung disease that would not show up on a regular chest x-ray, but the CAT scan he suggested confirmed that I had a lung disease known as bronchiolitis obliterans. I have increased my lung tests values and feel much better since having Dr. Harris as my pulmonologist. I would certainly recommend Dr. Harris to anyone.

Everything goes downhill when you start being a bit more proactive in your care. I specifically want to lower my meds, I'm on some that are there just to counteract each other. I changed my other providers to get a good team that's willing to work together. He is not. I was experiencing bad symptoms with a benzo he prescribed me, and he seemed offended that I even suggested it could be an issue (it's well known that it is), and ordered me to have my PCP figure out what was the real culprit. I ended up having to use my PCP to carefully withdraw from the benzo, since he was so uncooperative. Another one of my doctors suggested a med that could possibly greatly simplify my issues, and he refused to even respond to my suggestion that I try it, so I don't even know why it will or won't help me. I'm not contacting him all the time, maybe a few times a year, yet he seems irritated to have to listen to me or my other doctors. Also kept emailing me bills with another doctor's name on them.

Dr Harris is great. He takes the time to talk to you. He returns my calls after hours. He is understanding to your situation. Some years ago he treated my uncle. To this day I still say he saved my uncles life many times. So, when I needed a lung doctor, I chose Dr. Harris. He is still a great doctor & I would recommend him.

Not good, told me I was too heavy and was totally ignorant in front of my husband. Will not answer any of my calls or his staff, because I was not using my clap machine enough, so instead of returning my call or writing me a letter to let me know he is dropping me as a patient, everyone in the office has instructions not to answer any of my calls.

Friendly staff and short wait time on all my visits. Very knowledgeable and doesn't make you feel like an idiot for asking a lot of questions. He really cares about his patients and spends a good amount of time with them. He listens to all of your concerns. I was uninsured at the first visit and was able to get samples to get me by until I could afford my medicine. His staff also gave me information about how to get my medication at a more affordable rate. I highly recommend him.

He only spent 10 min with me and did a very superficial exam, and didn't review my past medical history. I had a serious sleep problem and he had no suggestions. This was a waste of my time and money.

Dr. Harris is a gifted physician who has literally saved my life. When all other doctors were unable to figure out what the problem was, he was able to give me a diagnosis as well as treatment which quickly put me back on the road to recovery.

Came to him after another pulmonologist had no idea how to treat my condition. Had heard excellent things about this physician and all of them were true. He examined me and treated my condition correctly and I have not had an issue since. He was a godsend!
