Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harkins "I have focused on constant improvement in the care I provide to my surgical patients. Too many doctors do things the way they always have because it works "just fine".  "Just fine" isn't good enough for my patients! I and my team continue to adopt and master the advancements in surgery, to always look for "best practice" techniques to offer to our patients, and to listen to our patients for their feed back on what they "loved" about our care and what was only "just fine".  This approach has lead to me receiving frequent requests to lecture and teach what I've learned across the country.  Our reputation is also the reason so many patients drive from across Houston an even travel from out of state to receive compassionate state of the art care from our team.  I invite you to come in for an appointment and see for yourself the difference our focus on you makes!"
