When I first was referred to Dr. Harris, I was trying to find the source of continual pain in my side and general fatigue and emotional episodes. That first visit ended up being a life changing visit for me. Dr. Harris was very personable and Laurie and Val played critical parts in helping me find renewed health and energy. They all listened to my symptoms, ordered tests and came up with a coordinated treatment plan. Most of all, they not only listened to my issues but always assured me that they could and would make me better. They each take time to listen and thoroughly explain their treatment plan and b Tshey have helped me to feel much better and I am confident that they are truly interested in my wellness.

Dr Harris preformed labiaplasty and a clitoral hood reduction on me 6 weeks ago. I couldn't be happier with the results. He is very easy to talk to, really listens and is a really cool guy. He also checked on me numerous times after surgery to make sure I was doing well. If you are considering this surgery, he is your man. The staff is also warm and welcoming. Great experience from beginning to end.

I had been wearing pads for 30 years bc of bladder leakage. Dr Harris did the bladder sling/rectocele repair on me. I have to admit this has been an awesome experience. I no longer need pads and I am one ecstatic customer/patient. If you have doubts or worries about this surgery, don’t. Dr Harris and his professional staff are the way to go. I feel freer than I have in many years. Thank you Dr Harris and May God bestow His many blessings on you.

Dr Harris and his staff were so nice and helpful. I was really scared and had put off having my bladder surgery for years. He answered all my questions and the surgery itself was so simple. I wish I would have had it done so much sooner. I would tell anyone let Dr Harris take care of those embarrassing bladder issues. You will not regret it

Dr. Harris recently performed surgery I had been dreading and frightened of for years. He was terrific in explaining the necessary surgery, recovery time, what to expect, etc. He and his team performed the surgery at River Oaks Hospital and I could not have asked for better care. Sorry I didn't have it sooner.

In both work and character, Dr. Harris is unparalleled in his field. He embodies immense skill, intelligence, professionalism, compassion, empathy, wisdom, honesty, consistency, integrity, and excellence. He is the kindest and most patient doctor I have ever dealt with. He really listens with his heart and remains fully in tune with the patient. He is intentional with each word and counsels his patients with deep wisdom from years of experience, which guides every decision tailored specifically for each patient's needs. With every interaction, you can see just how much he enjoys his job and loves people, realities that are so comforting for patients to witness and to experience. His work is impeccable, and I am completely confident with the results from my labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction. I strongly recommend Dr. Harris! I cannot speak highly enough about him and his work!

My is Tara i am from Gulfport Ms. I was recommended by a friend that lives in Jackson Mississippi about Southeast Urogyn and Dr Robert Harris.. I drove 156 miles to see Dr Harris. My Reason for seeing Dr Harris was due to abnormal bleeding and overactive bladder. My first time meeting Dr Harris was wonderful he was very kind and nice to me. I explained my problems and the years I have been dealing with my situation to Dr Harris. He reassured me that everything was going to be okay and that something simple as surgery could fix my problem. A month-and-a-half later I was scheduled to have my surgery my surgery went well my healing process is going well I would recommend any female see Dr Harris and his staff at Southeast Urogyn . seeing Dr Harris was worth my time and the drive it. Dr Harris have changed my life for the better.. my surgery only took about an hour and a half no major pain afterwards and I was back up and walking as soon as I was release from Same Day Surgery.

Dr. Harris is absolutely wonderful. I was experiencing prolapse, and was told I'd have to have a partial hysterectomy. I was referred to Dr. Harris, and I went in to see him feeling overwhelmed and scared about the whole thing. He really made me feel at ease and comfortable about the procedure. He was very attentive and patient with answering any questions I had. I had a fairly serious surgery, but my pain and discomfort were very minimal. I was out of the hospital the same day, with no problems at all. I feel better than I have in a very long time. Truly one of the best decisions I've made, and I am very grateful I was referred to Dr. Harris. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job.
