What People Say About Dr. Richard Harrell, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Harrell performed an extraordinary neck ultrasonography on me that consisted of preoperative imaging and a surgical plan involving minimally invasive techniques. He answered all my concerns and questions completely, putting me at ease. The surgeon he referred me to was Dr. David Bimston with whom Dr. Harrell began an endocrine surgical collaboration some time ago. Upon my reading of his prestigious background, he is among fewer than 500 physicians worldwide who have completed the Endocrine Neck Ultrasound program and performed thousands of thyroid and parathyroid biopsies, et al! I would highly recommend this very special physician. We are all very fortunate to have his vast experience in such a unique and needed skill. Thank you! Jennifer Conner

Dr. Harrell diagnosed me with hyperthyroidism at age 16 and treated me. I'm 41 now and doing wonderful! I've seen him many many times over the years and still impressed with his knowledge and his curiosity to keep learning- that's an invaluable characteristic of a good doctor!
