First appt. with Dr harpring was suppose to be for my head scan, he came in breezed his finger over my head said everything looked fine and walked out. ( my problem is on the inside of my head). Made another "headscan" appt to find out I was waiting 2 hours for him to come in and tell me they would call me in about two weeks for my scheduled scan. Never called me. Lied to my face twice and does not keep his word. DO NOT RECCOMMEND THIS CARELESS SOUL. Save your money. Staff was understanding.

Staff=cold, uncaring, incompetent. Focused solely on insurance information. Doctor=actually spent very little time with me, but assessed me as a patient in need of care, and ordered further more invasive testing. The scheduling of that testing was difficult because he took forever to dictate and transfer my records to the next group. His staff also did not do the proper insurance paperwork. At the follow up he contradicted himself and stated nothing was wrong and nothing he could do. Surreal.

It has now been 5 yrs since my neck fusion and it feels wonderful. He has an awesome bedside manner! Shows great concern for your well being. I now need another part of my back fused, and I know I'm in the best of hands!!! I haven't seen him since then(trying to put off 3rd fusion), but Dr. Harping here I come

What does our family think of Dr. Harpring? Over the years, he has saved the lives of two of our relatives (my bother-in-law in Jan. 2016). Degenerative Back Disease runs in our family. Dr. Harpring was the lead doctor on numerous surgeries on our family (3 surgeries on my back alone). We wouldn?t think of using anyone else.

I would not recommend to anyone. Unprofessional staff who appear to be incompetent and uncaring. Phone calls are not returned and surgery dates are scheduled too far out, leaving you to endure pain for a longer period.
