We didn't have a good experience with Dr. Harmon. She's very loud (my daughter has sensory issues and doesn't like loud sounds) and rushes you through appointments. But the major issue was Dr. Harmon's surgical skills. My daughter had an issue with an overabundance of wax and after two traumatic/painful procedures of extracting the it with a tool while she was awake, we decided to put my daughter under anesthesia to get all of it out. After the procedure that night, I looked in one of my daughter's ears and there was still a huge chunk of impacted wax. When I called Dr. H's nurse the next day and asked why there was so much wax left in her ear, she told me it was probably new wax that had formed. I reminded her that my daughter had the procedure the previous day and the nurse said, "Well sometimes wax forms pretty quickly." ??????? We never went back.

My son had the worst experience ever. Dr. Harmon should not be a pediatric doctor she is very unprofessional and does not car about her patients. My son was stated he was awake during his surgery and could feel ever thing. She did not even come out after the surgery to check on my son or do a follow visit with him. Jennifer is also very unprofessional.

Dr Harmon loves her job and loves kids. She is the best of the best. If the wait time is long it's Because everybody wants to see her... So be patient. Her level of expertise is second to none! A miracle worker! I can't think of anything bad to say except she doesn't have a twin or hasnt been cloned. The level of care that she showed for my son was very reassuring and set my family's mind at ease. Not that it matters, but she is a mother and just has that warm and calming spirit.

My entire experience was very nice, that includes my son, my husband and I....from the consultation appt on up to surgery. VERY friendly staff, bubbly Dr. Harmon, a well kept office...always a plus!!! Dr.Harmon did the consult and surgery as promised and my son did very well.

We saw Dr. Harmon today for a frenectomy for our 7 day old baby, and were impressed by her effectiveness and responsiveness to our concerns. She was thorough but fast, and made the process as painless as it could be for both our baby and her worried parents.

Dr. Harmon has been absolutely wonderful. She, her nurse, the nurse practitioner, & office staff were calm, attentive, compassionate, & thorough. To say this office is organized is an understatement. This office functions like a well oiled machine. Every step is planned out, & explained. Even help in setting appointments, planning surgery, what to do before & after. They called us at home, the following day, to see how my granddaughter was doing.

She was amazing! She answered all of our questions and never rushed us. She as patient and had a great personality overall. It felt like we were talking to a family member. In order to get appointments with her I schedule at whatever location she is available at without concern of travel distance. Thank you so much
