When it comes to Dr. Harkaway, I have only had positive experiences. I absolutely 100% trust the process and think he is great at what he does. Would recommend 10/10
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Harkaway has consulted on medical matters for us as well as other friends/acquaintances numerous times. He is always generous with his time and knowledge. He even insisted on talking to my husband's ER doctor when we were in an emergency room with strange and scary symptoms. He is a very caring, compassionate and brilliant doctor.
in Malvern, PA |
Excellent treatment and care by Dr Harkaway and his staff. Watching Dr Harkaway interact with other patients in a careful and caring manner was additionally comforting and genuinely inspiring. Highly recommend Dr Harkaway.

Hes horrible. Period. No class, rude.

My most recent visit with Dr. Harkaway was great. He was thorough, genuine and compassionate every step of the way. I felt at ease after speaking with him and am confident in moving forward as necessary. I would definitely recommend him in the future.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Harkaway recently saw a family member of mine as a first time patient. As you can imagine, the experience itself isn't always a comfortable one, but Dr. Harkaway showed extreme professionalism, genuine concern and was sensitive to their needs throughout the entire process. He also took the time to explain our options in great detail; we never felt rushed. I would highly recommend anyone needing to see a Urologist to make an appointment.

Excellent bird flipping ability
in Philadelphia,pa |
He is very smart and gentle. He told me I have kidney cancer and made me feel like it was ok to be afraid but strong like I could fight it.

Too busy making rude comments in the hallway about previous patients to his RN's
in Moorestown, NJ |
Caring, pleasant, professional
in Dayton, NJ |
The care is second to none. Always available, always willing to sit down and discuss any issues that you may have in a detailed and easy to understand manor. Feel very fortunate to be in his care.
