Dr. Harris and his staff were both friendly and professional. This has been by far my best experience with any medical group. My only criticism is that at times it is hard to reach their office personnel by phone.

Awesome service awesome care Great bed side manor truly cares about your care!!!
Irvine, CA |
I had an excellent experience with Dr Harris, his staff, the surgical center, the anesthesiologist, and post operation staff throughout the diagnosis, preparation, surgery, and post surgery for repair of my right inguinal (groin) hernia. Total surgery time was 1 hour with the actual surgery portion only taking 35 minutes, no complications or anything out of the ordinary. A little over two weeks after the surgery now and I'm feeling great! I would highly recommend Dr Harris!
Irvine, CA |
It was a positive experience from the beginning to the end. Dr. Harris was absolutely wonderful.
Irvine, CA |
Excellent physician. Highly skilled and competent professional. His staff was always helpful and friendly.
Irvine, CA |
Rushed meeting, didn't looked at CT scan brought to meeting to determine if surgery was even needed. $500 charge for 6 min., with no real feed back. They wanted to rush to surgery without even telling me what the CT scan showed. Wouldn't recommend.
I appreciate the feedback on your experience in my office. I always try to spend as much time as possible discussing surgery and answering questions but clearly did not do that in your case. Often reviewing CT scans and ultrasounds is not required if the hernia is easy to diagnose. I never try and rush patients into surgery so I am sorry you felt that is what we recommended. We would be happy to see you again and review your images and discuss your options in more detail. Dr. Harris, 08/2016

Dr Harris and his staff were extremely friendly, helpful and willing to answer any questions. Appointments were on time and the office was very modern. Surgery was successful and provided relief !
Irvine, CA |
I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Harris and his team. I was overwhelmed and depressed about my fibroid diagnosis. I went to three gynecologists and all of them recommended surgery. Thank God I found The Fibroid Treament Center. They took care of my insurance and and got me scheduled for my procedure in less than two weeks. I just wish my PCP and Dentist office was this efficient.
in Irvine, CA |
Dr Harris along with his entire staff were absolutely wonderful. The day of surgery, Lindsey explained everything in great detail. The procedure was smooth and the recovery was not as painful as previously explained. During the weeks after surgery, I got my energy back and I resumed to my normal activities. I can't thank Dr Harris enough for his dedication to this procedure.
Irvine, CA |
I was nervous going into the procedure, but the nurses had nothing but good things to say about Dr. Harris. Recovery was as expected, and I could really tell that Dr. Harris's quality of work was top notch. I opted for the bilateral laparoscopic surgery and the incisions were very small. Thank you Dr. Harris.
in Irvine, CA |
Explained procedure. Very professional. Tremendous doctor.
in Santa Ana, CA |
Dr. Harris performed laparoscopic double hernia repair with mesh three weeks ago and I couldn't be happier with the results. Being a chiropractor for over thirty years and always wanting to be there for my patients, I was concerned about the length of the recovery. I had the surgery on a Friday and a few days later on Wednesday I was back at the office working on my patients. It's been three weeks now and I feel great. I sincerely recommend Dr. Harris to my family, my friends and my patients.
in Chino, CA |
Doctor Harris has been the best Doctor I have ever been to. I can't believe how smooth the whole process went from the first appointment to the surgery and recovery. Thanks to Doctor Harris and staff.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
