Upon first meeting him I had to rely on gut instincts to determine if he can be trusted for surgery, and right away I liked him. After 3 surgeries, 2 by him, I was right. He's a good Dr.

I have been a patient of Dr. Harris and he came highly recommended by a co-worker who had gone to see him regarding a knee and back work injury. Dr. Harris has been my attending physician for my work injury and he has always been extremely thorough, very attentive, and most of all considerate and compassionate. For those who have ever dealt with a DOL workers' comp claim, will understand the horrible and nightmare process. Dr. Harris and his entire staff have always gone beyond to always help!

I was a patient of Dr. Harris, I had a hip injury and was seen by a few doctors, which no one could figure out what was going on and just prescribing me medication and took me off of work. once I went to Dr. Harris he found that I had a possible labral tear and with his help and physical therapy I was able to return back to work. I fell happier and not in as much pain anymore.

Dr. Harris is aligned with the insurance companies ultimately in charge of the services you receive. His evaluation of patients with whom he operates on are in his favor and deliberately avoid objective testing. My recommendation is to insist that Dr. Harris or his colleagues not be allowed to do any post operative evaluations of his or his colleagues treatments. It's simple logic to conclude his findings will be in favor of his work and conveniently negate the facts.
