We have been coming to see Dr. Harum for many years. My son has autism and is developmentally delayed. He functions at the level of a two-year-old and is non-verbal and not toilet trained. We had a period of time a number of years ago where he was very self-injurious. We had him in a football helmet for 18 months to avoid brain damage or injury to his eyes or ears. Dr. Harum helped us heal his gut and he is happy and never self-injurious. His and our family's quality of life is so much better. We will always be grateful for her kind and intelligent care of our son.

My son has been a patient of Dr. Harum’s for about 9 yrs. He received a diagnosis of Autism locally, I was quick to do my research. We travel 2 hrs to see Dr . Harum and it is worth every mile, every time. She discovered several other issues due to being very thorough, she is quick to explain, research, and offer comfort to not just the patient but family as well. With all the labs drawn, my son is still excited every time he knows he has an appointment with her. That speaks volumes itself

Our daughter has an extremely rare and severe neurological disorder that effects every system of her body. Dr. Harum takes the time to assess her thoroughly and answer all our questions without feeling rushed. She is very knowledgeable about medications and obviously took time to research our daughter's condition. She is very caring to our daughter and us as parents. After leaving from our first visit my husband and I looked at each other and said Dr Harum is the physician our daughter needs.

I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to evaluate our son so thoroughly, and for making sense of over 3 years' worth of testing and observations. I am really hopeful that through testing and targeted treatment, we will be able to improve his ability to detox, and that he will be able to find an easier path through life. I am so very grateful for your brilliance, expertise, and willingness to think outside of the box. Having been forced to navigate this world as a special needs parent

Dr. Harum has gone above my highest expectations of a doctor for my son. I have worked in the medical field and have known and worked beside many great doctors, but Dr. Harum definitely is on the top of our list of favorites. We have been seeing her for about 7 years, and even with all of the lab work performed, my son still gets excited every time he knows he is going to see her. She is irreplaceable and we would be lost without her on our side.

I came to Dr. Harum expecting the typical approach to my boy's autism diagnosis. She and her staff exceeded my expectations providing the most individualized personal care for my son while being clear and direct with the treatment plan. My son is now a different person and his condition is much more manageable. I was at my wits end and had given up hope but Dr. Harum saved our family. I would highly recommend her to any family wanting the best care.

What a poor excuse for a physician! Most physicians demonstrate some level of caring for their patients. Not Harum! This doctor is clearly not interested in the people she serves. I've never seen a physician so unequipped to address issues. The majority of my office visits with her, I spent the entire time reminding her of what was done and/or discussed during the last visit. In addition, I had to suggest the treatment options. If you have a Special Needs child, find another doc!!! RUN!!
