      I found Dr. Harris to be a very caring and competent oculoplastic surgeon. The process of having him do blepharoplasty on my upper eyelids was comfortable from beginning to end. I knew what to expect beforehand, and what to expect afterwards. Everything was well explained, and I was very pleased with the result. I would recommend Dr. Harris and his staff highly.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Harris' Care Philosophy

      I strive to treat a patient the way I would expect to be treated if I were in their shoes. Communicating with the patient throughout the examination by explaining what I'm looking for and what I am finding helps them understand their condition. I think it helps build trust and confidence that we both have the same goal, and that is to bring you the best possible outcome. I want to know about my patient's lives, not just their immediate problem. This allows me to serve them in a way that is most meaningful to them, not just to my understanding. I want my patients to leave the office feeling they were listened to and that their biggest concerns were addressed. If I can do that, I've succeeded as your doctor.
