Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harris "As a neurologist, I believe in listening to the patient, providing thorough testing and giving you the best treatment possible. I use a team approach by utilizing a neurology physicians assistant to shorten wait times and get you in as soon as possible. I continue to teach new residents which allows me to stay up to date on the latest treatments. I have privleges at University Health Hospital and will admit or see patients there when needed. New patients are always welcome!"

Patient Comments (2)

I absolutely love Dr Harris. She took care of me when I was under Minagar but its better now because she is the head dr in charge. I'm having problems with my MS now but at my appointments she took the time to sit down and explain everything to me. In my opinion she is one of the BEST DOCTORS...more

HANDS DOWN, THE BEST! I wouldn't trade her for the world. I truly thought I might be dying because I could not imagine living my life in such pain as it had become mostly. It took a month and a half but I am better, I may never be 100% but I am thankful for the life she was able to get me back to....more

Thank you Melissa! I am so happy we could help you. It makes my heart happy to know that you are better. We are working to streamline the workload for our girls upfront. There is a lot of work that they have to do and I think it can lead to burnout. We are reducing the number of new patients we see so I can focus more time to our established patients as well as reduce some of the work in the front. Please let me know about other issues that we can work on and I will try to address them!
