He continues to immerse himself in new research and direct development updates of The Harlin Center's clinical decision support software (CDSS). The center's software enables Dr. Harlin to analyze big data, determine the root causes of disease, and to diagnose with much greater accuracy than he would otherwise be able to do.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harlin "When patients have a deep understanding of their health risks, they are much more incentivized to follow through with prescribed interventions and treatment plans.  Patient education is central to our patient care.  Patient education drives patient follow through, and that in turn drives better health outcomes.

Excellent care requires followup care and so our conscierge service does not limit the number of patient visits.  We also welcome spouces, family, and friends of the patient because we understand that they are part of the patient's healthcare team."
