Dr. Harrison has been my doctor for many years and I have always been very pleased with my association with him. He always explains any treatment and listens to my questions and concerns. He never rushes me but is very thorough. He and all of his staff have always been very pleasant and caring. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor!!

Hi Doctor Harrison. The treatment on my shoulder helped quite a bit. It is much less painful. You are a wonderful doctor and I will miss you very much. Kaoru Tullock

This group was recommended to me by another surgeon and long time friend. I had knee replacement surgery performed by Dr. Harrison. I found him to be a genuinely caring, skillful and patient person. We tried several treatments before resorting to surgery. He cares about the person rather than just the body part affected. We had many discussions about things other than my knee. Were he not retiring, I would certainly remain his patient. Best wishes for a long and happy retirement my friend.

I was referred to this specialist for what I was told is carpel tunnel syndrome that I'm experiencing. I'm also nursing a six week old infant and understand that medical care may be somewhat limited. But I was hoping that I would be given something for relief of my condition. However, I received nothing. I was not even given advice of exercises or therapy to alleviate my pain. Nothing. I have to wait one month just to have a shock test performed. Then I assume I will be waiting some more.
