I was suffering with diverticulitis for about 5 years. The pain was unbearable and I had to be hospitalized. I was told I would need surgery to resection my colon to take out the infected part. A friend recommended Dr Harris and changed my life. He operated on me in Feb and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome or a better doctor. The man is amazing. He explained everything beforehand and it all went exactly like he told me. I am a fan and owe him my quality of life.

I had a colectomy 6 months ago due to severe ulcerative colitis. Dr. Harris and his whole surgery team were excellent. I have a permanent ileostomy that I am completely happy with. If you are considering this type of surgery I would definitely recommend Dr. Harris.

The best Doctor there is, he saved my husbands life, after being sick with UC for 8 long years what Dr Harris did was life saving surgery. Life will never be the same after removing big colon (colectomy)but its a big improvement, living without a pain.Dr Harris will spend time with you explaining everything, step by step and answering all your questions. Its 4 years after my husbands surgery and he is doing great. I cant thank you enough Doctor Harris for giving us a second life, God Bless you.
