My child has been seeing Dr. Harper since she was 2 years old and is now 13. I trust her so much that I refuse to find another physician in Florida where I now live. She is such a joy and very professional.

Dr. Harper is absolutely amazing. I had so many recommendations for her to choose as my son’s pediatrician. My first two visits with her was very welcoming. She’s very knowledgeable about any questions and or concerns. My spouse and I love her personality. I would definitely recommend her for any child’s pediatrician.

From the time we were called back until we left the clinic, it was the best pediatric experience we've had. Dr. Harper and her nursing staff were so wonderful and caring. My two year old warmed up so quickly he didn't even want me beside him and went right to them without problems. Dr. Harper listened to all of my questions and answered everything without hesitation. They were all smiling the entire time and so playful with my son. I couldn't have asked for a better effort at quickly gaining rapport from a doctor's office.

Dr. Harper AND the nurse that assessed grandson were efficient, informative. The nurse was the most cheerful I've ever encountered, amazingly so. Dr. Harper ordered essential lab work to insure child moves onto adult practitioner in great health. My grandson has loved Dr. Harper from the start and is not anticipating change.

Dr. Harper is great with my son. She sings to him when he starts to fuss and lets him see the medical equipment to get his mind off of being in the office. She always reassures my fears and answers my many "first time mom" questions. My sister referred me to Dr. Harper as soon as I became pregnant and I would do the same to anyone looking for a pediatrician.
