FANTASTIC! He is calm, cool and collective and simply fantastic. Furthermore, I had an some annoying pain ailments after a surgery and then a car accident and he assured me from the moment I saw him that he/we would get this resolved. Perhaps more importantly, he kept that promise. Thank you Dr. Harris.

I would never refer anyone to Dr Harris. I have been a RN for forty years I have never seen a doctor treat a patient so rudely. When he forced me to reduce the dose of my pain medication, I went to his office and requested to leave a message for him. The receptionist said he would not talk to me. I would have to wait for my next appointment ( in 2 weeks ). So, I waited in the waiting room for him to come out. He walked out right past me , ignoring me. He told me to go to the ER. I have a severe nerve injury . He insisted I reduce the dose of my pain medication but he gave me NO tools to help me ; such as nerve blocks.

I have been a patient of Dr. Harris for over 10 years, through back and neck surgery & recently through a hip replacement. This office is special for the following reasons, well worth a 10+. Dr Harris is a great listener; he helps to diagnose the cause of the pain & the location; he provides options for relief & then supports his patients with ongoing care. Rare for Dr.s offices these days but he is 99% on time for appointments; his staff is knowledgeable & customer focused; he has hired enough professional staff to manage & maintain a quality standard in the practice. I have always seen Dr. Harris personally for each appointment, I have NEVER been shuffled off to a PA for an office visit. With critical pain, his staff fits me in for an urgent appoint. They can reach him if needed when he is not in the office & he responds. (wonder of wonders). I have referred friends and family to Dr. Harris with great success. Additionally, he knows & works well with surgeons in OC.

Dr. Harris is excellent in my opinion. My first visit for back pain, he listened, examined, and presented options. He helped me to come to a decision that we were both comfortable with. Every time I go for a follow up or another injection, he remembers things we talked about at prior visits! He always smiles, and always treats me well and with respect - not as just another faceless patient or another procedure to check off for the day. If you need pain management, go see him.

I have had 5 orthopedic operations and so I've endured a lot of pain, both pre and post surgery. Whenever I have a pain issue, I run to see Dr. Harris. He is smart, keeps up with recent research, is approachable, listens and has always helped alleviate my pain. And since I'm in my '80's, I'm not embarrassed to say that I don't mind that he is adorable!

After having multi-level cervical surgery in 2014, I've suffered from not only neck pain, but also shooting pains up my neck & into my head making my scalp tender to the touch. My surgeon & other physicians were not concerned. During my first visit to Dr. Harris in 2016, he knew exactly what was causing my pain. I broke down in tears knowing that I am not crazy! He is an excellent physician who actually cares about his patients! I would highly recommend him!

Awful Dr. matthew harris caused me extreme pain during a routine epidural procedure. He failed to wait for the numbing solution to work and instead hastily and carelessly injected me with painful epidural solution immediately after injecting me with the numbing shot. When I yelled out and started crying from pain he yelled at me to stop crying and accused me of simply wanting attention. I am appalled at how horrible this Dr treated me especially in my most vulnerable state. Worst bedside manner!

Even tho this was my first epidural cervical spine injection, Dr Harris alleviated all my concerns with care. He not only explained to me exactly what he was going to do, he also did that during the procedure. I appreciate his TLC.

Dr. Harris is a professional and caring doctor. He is very knowledgeable and listens to your problems and comments. I've had considerable lower back problems for many years. Prior doctors treated my symptoms with nerve ablation procedures. Dr Harris added SI injections to the mix with much improved results. I would definitely recommend him for pain management attention especially in the lower back area.

Today was my second visit to Dr. Harris. After moving here from Nevada and having an extensive back problem history, I was extremely impressed with how efficient Dr. Harris is. His line of questioning was very thorough and some tests with my legs and feet, allowed him to see what level of pain/limitations I was experiencing. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. I am extremely satisfied with his Doctor/Patient relationship and will recommend him to people looking for a good Dr.

I would highly recommend Dr. Harris. He listened to my issues and pain conditions, diagnosed the problem, and treated it immediately and effectively. He was very easy to talk to and seemed interested. This to me is a big deal, because I have had some doctors that over prescribe and require continued service. Dr. Harris let me decide my pain tolerance and determine when to return, if needed at all.
