He was great!!
My first visit went well. He listened to my problems, and answered all of my questions, all in all he was very attentive and not rushed. Dr Harum explained everything, even using pictures. and models. He explained our next steps, I left feeling hopeful for the first time in over a year.

I didn’t like Dr Harum at all, & was so glad to change to another doctor in the practice. Dr Harum seemed to me to have what I call a “god complex,” which many doctors seem to get when they don’t listen to their patients because they’re not the ones with the medical degree. His bedside manner was very rude, & I never felt like he took me seriously. Example: I had a spinal cord stimulator trial scheduled with him. There were 2 manufacturers they used at the time & I’d done a lot of research & was only willing to try one based on clinical testing and reviews. I was very specific with Dr Harum about which one I wanted the trial of. He put the wrong one in and said it was no big deal. I was so upset! How could I decide on a surgery if I had the wrong unit? I went in on a Saturday to have the right SCS hooked to the implanted leads & only got an hour long trial because that’s as long as the correct rep was available to let me use it. I didn’t trust him after that & gladly switched doctors.

Dr. Harum is a fabulous pain medicine Dr. I have been going to him on/off for years with great results. He listens, advises options and is thorough in ensuring delivery of excellent medical care within his latest technology facility. His gentle approach is most calming with pain patients to also ease anxiety some experience with procedures. I moved from the area but due to a recent back issue, I travel 2+ hours for appts although I live in an area with many other experts which is a testament of care I receive at Chrystal Coast. I've listened to other patients in the waiting area and have heard nothing but positive remarks. Thanks for all you do Dr Harum !! My neck and back thank you too ;o)

I would definitely give Dr. Had an ********** if they had ten stars! I honestly could have NEVER survived all of the pain from 21 major surgeries that left me still having unbearable pain. He has done trigger points, cervical and lumbar epidural and cervical and lumbar radiofrequency nerve ablation on the effected nerves. I have been Dr. Harams patients over 20 years. Without a doubt he has made my life worth living. I can never thank him enough.
