From start to finish, Dr. Harris, his fellow physicians, Dr. Long etc all, and his office staff treated us like we were friends, equals, and valued patients. My husband's surgery was botched by the 1st surgeon he saw and Dr. Harris fast- tracked him into the OR and fixed it completely. Harris...more

His advice to my son re acute prostate pain was to live with it. This usually isn't what a patient is expecting to hear during an office visit. Very bad listener. Maybe some compassion could replace some of the arrogance.
