Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harris "So many medical practices today are run like an assembly line in a high volume factory, often falling short of creating a quality product. I believe that there is still a place for the thinker, craftsman and innovator in medical practice. And, that it is still possible to be an understanding physician who merges clinical acumen with a warm unhurried manner. I take the time to tease out the correct diagnosis, custom design a treatment plan and execute that plan with pain staking attention to detail. I will never be an assembly line physician."

Patient Comments (1)
New Canaan, CT |
I am in my mid-70s and have worn glasses since 4th grade. Dr. Harris is the best opthalmologist I've ever had. I go into his NYC office from my home in CT several times a year - that's how good he is. I can vouch for the fact that he makes excellent referrals to specialists in various eye subspecialties. His office runs smoothly, like clockwork, and graciously. Dr. Harris is personable, takes the time to explain things carefully and answers questions fully. He is up-to-date.
