Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harrell "Having a surgical procedure is an intimidating experience for most people. It is my goal to lessen these fears by listening to my patients and building a relationship of trust with them. As a young surgeon, I consider it a privilege to provide my patients with the most current surgical techniques and advancements. Furthermore, I strive to serve every patient in a manner that I would like my own family to be treated. It is my strong belief that God is the author of all healing, both physically and mentally, and I hope to be used as his instrument for all people who are in need."
