Stay away from this doctor. In my opinion she should not be practicing medicine. If a patient comes to your office and blood work is ordered, what should be done for the patient. If the volume of blood is decreased dramatically, urgent action needs to be taken. Buyer Beware!!!

Horrible doctor, she leads you to believe that there is so much wrong with you when all you do is go in for a regular check up and a slight soar throat. She will look you in the face and say something is terribly wrong with you when all you had was a cold. She will insist on bloodwork and MRI, and EKG, and to go visit the cardiology. I was very disappointed with her. I'd turn away if I where you!!

I went to Dr Harms,because the hospital requested I do a follow up after I've had a bad reaction to diet pills. I read it was released Stayton I have been dehydrated. Long story short, Dr Harms sent a notice to DMV That I shouldn't be driving. I took in the papers from DMV to get to get signed off. she refused to sign untell she finds forethought g wrong with me. Completed,blood work, CAT scan, chest xrays, MRI, I am in perfect health and perfect driving record. Now my license Is in jeperdy.

If I could give a 0 rating I would give but I don't have the option. a very cold and non professional doctor, did not stick to her oat of keeping patients privacy and told my relative about my health issue which I have kept away from them all my life. Did not do anything for me and will never want to see her again.

Paid a lot of money for this out of network provider. Things were seemingly well the first few months. Through some failed medications I was pushed onto another doctor who didn't take insurance with outrageous prices that I could never afford. Because medications failed, this provider refused to see me anymore and took me off all medications - unprofessional. Nothing explained.

I went to Dr. Harms for my check-up when I first moved to the area & loved her. However, one year later I was just starting a new job and just needed one more month of refills on my birth control so buy me time until I could come see her. Not only did Dr. Harms deny my request for just one more month, the receptionist told me word for word " if you really need your birth control then go to urgent care". I want to be able to rely on my doctor & since I cannot rely on Dr. Harms, I will not be back

I'm 42 and my first appointment with Doc (do no) Harms was the best experience I've had. She's approachable, candid without being shame-y, and has a great sense of humor. She treated me like a human and not a med chart, but she was thorough about the contents of my medical history and purpose for the appointment, too. I went away feeling like I had a doctor I could brag about & recommend to local friends when it seems so many other folks (like me, formerly) are unhappy with the docs they see.

I used to see Dr. Harms when she was at Ross and Associates in RSM. I really liked her bedside manner, she was very thorough and her caring nature shown through in her exams and the medical advice she gave. I trusted her decisions implicitly and was very sad to see her leave the practice. I just switched my PCP to be able to see her again in Laguna Hills, so I hope that she has not changed.

Pros: Dr. Harms is simply the best doctor I've ever had. She always takes time with me to discuss concerns, and even explains the science behind what we're discussing. She does blood tests in-office for preventative care and to monitor chronic conditions, which saves me a lot of time and money. But she doesn't have an ego about giving referrals when needed. Cons: Might be a wait, but that's the flipside of an office where patients aren't treated like cattle! Bring a sweater - it gets cold.

Dr. Harms does not provide first line of treatment, she has always sent me out to specialists rather than talk about diet, lifestyle, etc. She even referred me back to my endocrinologist to get answers to my questions regarding fosomax that she ordered for my osteoporosis.
