Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harris "I treat patients how I would like to be treated. Every patient that comes to our office is there for a reason: pain, loss of function, inability to play with their kids, inability to play their sport, among hundreds of others. Everyone is different and every patient encounter I have recognizes this. Many clinicians have lost the ability to talk to or examine patients and rely exclusively on an X-ray or MRI. I treat patients, not MRI's. Patients expect us to make a correct and timely diagnosis, provide both non-surgical and surgical treatment options, and discuss the expected outcomes of both. In my office, I not only use the best evidence-based medicine to treat patients, but I also write that literature, publishing and presenting from across the street to across the world. I use that evidence to make sure that every single patient gets the absolute best care possible whenever they step in the clinic or the operating room."
