During my visit, Dr. Harris was thorough, timely, and generous with his time and recommendations for my personal eye care treatment plan. He is extremely knowledgeable about eyes and I would recommend him to anyone i know who would require any eye treatment. Excellent physician!!

I had cosmetic eye surgery (upper lids and puffy underneath the eyes) by Dr. Harris. He answered all my questions before I scheduled surgery and at the post surgery office visits. I am extremely pleased with the results and recommend his services.

Excellent communicator. Listens. Explains and speaks to you as if you were a friend, not above you. Not arrogant or dismissive. Staff is friendly and you feel welcome. Short wait at office, and if you present with a medical situation that is needing immediate attention, he will accommodate your case. Highly competent occuloplastic surgeon that appears to love his work. He could also qualify as "Dr. McDreamy" lol!

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.
