New York, NY |
Dr. Harrison was so worth the wait. Initially I was getting antsy about the hour-long wait as the office was backed up, but when I finally met with Dr. Harrison, I realized you cannot put a price on a doctor who takes the time to make sure his patients needs are fully met. He had an excellent bedside manner that truly put me at ease and he was incredibly patient and reassuring as I asked several questions. Dr. Harrison gave me a thorough examination alongside addressing my initial concerns.

It is by far the worst doctor in my life that I have visited. OMG, the bedside manner, nonexistent; the unnecessary test results, plentiful; the attitude from the dykey secretary, check! The worst office. How is it that this office is allowed to operate in such precious real estate as 10011 when there are so many other hungry and better-qualified specialists/doctors? Why?

Dr Harrison is a very nice and caring man. But other reviewers are correct, his equipment is filthy and appears really unhygienic.I went for weeks, because he kept telling me to come back two weeks later, nothing was really solved, although he was thorough. Eventually I had to get myself off the cycle and just stop going. There is hardly ever a long wait though, and the receptionist is very nice.

Dr Harrison was very personable and knowledgable. There was no waiting time and he gave me all the time I needed for questions. I highly recommend him.

I will never go to Dr. Harrison again. He had me going in circles trying to get medical records that he and his office should have been getting not me. During my appointment he kept leaving the room and wasn't giving me the proper attention and care I needed. He is rude and told me not to ask 50 million questions during our next appointment because he's going away. Rest assure I will not be going to that next appointment and I'll find a doctor that actually will help me with the issue I'm having

I couldn't wait around long enough to see Dr. Harrison because just one look at his office and it was filthy. I arrived early to my appointment only to find all the waiting room chairs were stained and dirty. I was afraid to even sit down. For some reason, I decided to wait for the doctor anyway. His office tools were duct taped, and there were dirty plastic containers everywhere. I left immediately citing the office's condition as my reason for leaving.

Not sure why the reviews here are so low. I had a great experience with Dr. Harrison. The woman at the front desk, Jill was incredibly helpful when my insurance company was being difficult. She spoke to them personally and got me full coverage for the visit. Dr. Harrison was knowledgable, quick, and had a good sense of humor. Would definitely recommend
