in Corinth, MS |
What a wonderful surgeon! I had a very good experience with Dr. Harrison. He was very patient and explained my procedure thoroughly. He also prayed with me before taking me back to surgery. What a blessing!
He was absolutely wonderful. Refused to leave no stone uncovered to make sure everything was okay with my surgery after having some complications.
