I have been a patient of Dr. Harris' for more than 20 years. He literally saved my life/sanity. Dr. Harris worked with me to find medicine that worked for my frequent migraines and a preventative medicine that helped control them. My husband now sees Dr. Harris for Cluster Migraines and has had great success. Talking with Dr. Harris is always a joy as he listens and remembers you on your next visit.

Dr. Harris as well as staff always make the patient feel welcome and have the patient's well-being the main point of interest. If one does not fully understand medical terms/tests, he will take the time to do so. Always willing to help alleviate anxiety one may have and explain diagnoses and gives advice on the best plan of care for you. He is by far one of the most down to earth physician I have had in such a long time. He is really concerned about you as an individual and makes recommendations for your benefit. Most of all, he listens to you and takes your viewpoint into consideration as well. So thankful for him and his polite office staff as they too are willing to help in any way possible.

Dr Harris put me at ease immediately. Since my MRi is apparently not normal it seems like it’s hard to explain but I’m happy with his decision to do another one in November and compare it to the first one. I’d recommend him to anyone

I absolutely love Dr. Harris. He is quite possibly one of the most compassionate and considerate doctors I have ever met and having been a runner on the hamster wheel of healthcare, it is always refreshing to interact with a doctor that treats you as a person. And doesn’t immediately judge And label if the “p”[ain] word is mentioned rather is solution focused and goes above and beyond to provide excellent service. Can not recommend highly enough
