Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dealing with rotator cuff issue. Dr. Harris gave multiple options for moving forward and supported more PT instead of instantly recommending surgery.

Dr. Harris and My Left Knee
Dr. Harris evaluated my left knee and gave me several options to choose from. He answered all of my questions and allowed my wife and I to decide on what course of action would be best for my left knee. Then he explained the surgery and it's up side and down side. After hearing all of my options we chose to have a total knee replacement. I have total confidence in Dr. Harris and his team on my outcome.

Solved my problem with one visit. I loved it that he spoke people talk not doctor talk and that he didn't talk down to me like so many other doctors.
