How unfortunate that a colorectal surgeon couldn't help you remove your head from your own behind. As a current patient, I have seen patients of all ages and ethnicities leave her immaculately clean office with a smile knowing that between her and her staff they will be well taken care of. She's thorough, kind and my only regret is that she isn't a primary care physician.

Dr. Harris takes the time to listen to your problem. She proceeds to do a gentle and thorough exam explaining what she's doing step by step and explaining her findings in a clear manner. She prescribed a medication and even said let me know if you have any insurance issues. She is not bothered by questions and said to call if problem persists. Truly grateful to Dr. Harris.

Dr. Harris is a spectacular doctor and also incredibly warm, patient, and caring. I am amazed at how comfortable she makes you feel while dealing with the most ‘embarrassing’ part of the body! I trust her implicitly and am so glad I found her. I could not recommend her more highly.

Dr Harris is professional, and also so compassionate, funny, and kind. She listened to me, provided a thorough exam and diagnosis, and is doing ongoing treatment. I really trust and respect her, and feel comfort in the knowledge that she’ll give me the best care. In addition, the office itself is immaculate and felt quite safe in this scary Covid era. So highly recommended.

Great doctor. I'd seen two other highly regarded and qualified doctors before I saw Dr. Harris. The others didn't help despite lengthy treatment regimens. Dr. Harris helped quickly and efficiently. She also has great bedside manner despite the inherent embarrassment given the type of issues she treats. Wholeheartedly recommend.

Our experience with Dr. Harris has been outstanding: from pre-op visits through the post-op checkups, she has come across as a professional through and through with a human and caring side as well. We are so grateful to her for the excellent care my husband received and for her reassuring and confident guidance throughout the process. Yes, we definitely recommend Dr. Harris to anyone in need of medical care!

Dr. Marsha Harris performed a surgery on me for sigmoid diverticulitis. I am a 33 year old female and this was my first ever surgery. She not only has amazing bedside manner but she took the time to answer all my questions and made me feel at ease. The operation was a success and I am healing beautifully. Not only is she incredibly competent in her profession but she has such a warm personality as well. I would highly recommend her.
