      The doctor listened and is easy to confide in. He has shown the experience to be able to identify a wide range of conditions and have an extensive knowledge of them. He always processes my specialist referrals immediately but has the expertise to know if they are unnecessary and doesn't waste our time pursuing non issues. His calm and reassuring demeanor make me not want to delay visits.

      Dr. Harms listens well and is very knowledgeable. Seems to have a lot of experience in a wide variety of areas diagnosing and prescribing a course of treatment. He has only been my doctor for a couple of years and I don't know him well, but he is friendly, easy to talk to, and has been very responsive about referrals to specialists. I have been hesitant about seeking treatment for an arthritic hip so I was pleasantly surprised when he informed me, though my last doctors didn't, that there were probably excellent options for me besides replacement. He got me a referral to a sports medicine physician on the spot. Feel like I wasted too much time with my last doctor just out of familiarity and am THRILLED to be back with Memorial Care in Long Beach. I'll keep you posted on my hip.

      Dr. Harms had an extremely positive attitude and approach and quickly dialed into what I needed and nicely answered my questions and directed me toward my blood test. He also emailed me later to let me know my test results. Made me feel that I had a Dr. who actually cared about my health.. His nurse Denise was also extremely capable, efficient and nice. A good visit all around.

      Dr. Harms has been my primary care physician for many years. I have total confidence in his total medical knowledge and ability to apply that knowledge to any medical needs that I may require. Never had a problem with obtaining a necessary pharmacy prescription or a medical referral for specialist care.

      Had someone call to say he needed to see me sooner than planned after Labs done. Was leaving for NYC for eight days. No call back. Turned out to be elevated blood sugar, but left me hanging for my whole vacation. Wife complained of knee pain. Treated with drugs and injections, but never even did an X-Ray. It turned out she was bone on bone, and needed knee replacement. very poor follow up on perscription refill requests.
