Yes I would highly recommend Dr. Harrison. I broke my foot three months ago and and instead of going to urgent care during COVID I called his office and got an appointment that day. His nurse came out with a wheelchair for me to my car. He was able to x-ray fit my foot fit it for a boot all in his office. I’ve been very pleased with the care I’ve had these last three months ,plus his office staff is also very nice to work with.

DR Matthew Harrison, is outstanding! He's very quiet but very caring. I had surgery on my right ankle and so far I feel great. I won't write a book about it, but I highly recommend that you go to him. Special thanks to his assistant Alex.

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!
