I went to see Dr. Harrison for an Achilles injury and he completely botched the diagnosis. He concluded that it was fine. When asked why my foot showed so much trauma (black/blue/swollen) he did not have a good answer. I went for a second opinion and was diagnosed via MRI (not x-ray) that I had obliterated my Achilles tendon. Had I not pursued a second opinion and received the proper care, my quality of life would have been seriously deteriorated due to Dr. Harrison’s incompetence. STAY AWAY!

Fantastic doctor. I am 92 and have had ankle pain for over 20 years. Dr. Harrison did a full ankle replacement, and I no longer have any pain. It's amazing!
