Learn about this Doctor

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.Read more

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.
