Very unprofessional, and inconsiderate man. Left the Bayshore location after scheduling a very important procedure for my husband. Did not provide any kind of explanation, but most importantly, he did not follow through on his commitment to his patient. Very disappointed. And who’s to say he won’t do this again?

Dr Harlin has awesome bedside manner and is easy to talk to. My review is based on the fact that he did not properly close my ovarian vein using standards procedures. Two years later, the pelvic pain has worsen and I have to have the surgery corrected. Do not see a vascular surgeon for these types of surgeries. See a vascular radiology interventionist. They will do it correctly.

I was diagnosed with 95% blockage of my left carotid artery and referred to Dr. Stuart Harlin. From my first appointment with him he reassured me that the tests required for the best results of the surgery would be done and he would review them to insure his complete satisfaction with the prep prior to the surgery. Throughout the admission, pre-op, surgery and post-op recovery Dr. Harlin was totally confident in the outcome and made me confident in his ability and the outcome of this surgery.
