Excellent comprehensive care and explanation of diabetic ulcer on lower leg. Very complete investigation of health problems contributing issues that may have effected care. Fast prompt follow through for needed after care and home health care needs short term. Dr. Harris took time to investigate and successfully treat issue after another doctor spent 10 minutes with me and immediately wanted to do complex, unneeded surgery.
