Dr. Harrison and his staff are very professional in all aspects of dealing with me the patient. Everyone I had interface with was courteous and explained everything that they were doing and why they were doing it. I can give Dr. Harrison and his staff five stars!!

Disgusting person! Don't go here he only would love to call you names and put you down not a professional so called doctor. He's being turned in for unprofessional treatment.
in Carriere, MS |
There is no one else I trust more than Dr. Harrison when I receive epidurals with prednisone. Very good at what he does! Highly recommend this alternative to neck and lower back arthritis & sciatic pain.
