Inguinal Hernia repair. First surgeon insisted on an "open repair " procedure due to the size. Dr. Harris recommended laparoscopic repair, and would do the open repair if I insisted. I have had an open repair on the other side years ago and I am glad that I chose Dr. Harris recommendation for the laparoscopic procedure, the recovery time and associated pain were both significantly better.

Hernia surgery went very smoothly. Dr. Harris was incredibly reassuring to me and my wife pre and post op. My pain level was moderate right away, minimal for three days and virtually nonexistent after that. Highly recommend Dr. Harris!

I scheduled a phone appointment online & confirmed my info. I was NEVER called. I called the office back & they basically overlooked it! Then I find out that the ultrasound is NOT even offered at the office. The office is quick to mention the $200 office consultation after you complete your ultrasound on your own. The embolization surgery will be $6000 if they don't accept your insurance. What a SCAM & waste of my time!

I made my first appointment in his office and I requested Hernia repair as soon as possible. The office Mari was wonderful and got me scheduled in a week. Surgery was at orange coast out patient, that experience was pleasant. I had 7 pain for about 4 days then pain decreased everyday by one number. So after 7 days I was pain free. Thank you,

My wife and I thanked our lucky stars for finding Dr. Todd Harris as my left Inguinal Hernia surgeon. I had intense pain for many months, and it affected our quality of life very negatively. My previous doctor recommended open surgery, but I was apprehensive about the lengthy recovery. I researched the Internet for an excellent laproscopic hernia surgeon, and was extremely grateful to have found Dr. Harris. His expertise, extraordinary knowledge, confidence and approachable manner shone through at our first meeting, I knew instantly he is my surgeon. His wonderful support team scheduled my surgery swiftly so I wouldn't have to prolong my suffering. The surgery on 3/5/2020 went smoothly and as expected. The post-operative pain was minimal, despite minor difficulties with urination and bowel issues the first 2 days. I was fully recovered after 3 weeks, and now feel as good as new with no pain whatsoever. A great big thank you to Dr. Harris and his amazing support team!

Do you have a hernia doctor on speed dial? No one does. I looked up reviews which is why I am writing one. I had an umbilical hernia as well as an underlying tear. Went down at 8:30 am and woke up by 9:15. Felt discomfort for 3 days and felt like I had done 1,000 sit-ups. Did not need any pain meds and 4 weeks out back to normal actually. Highly recommend Dr. Harrris and associates!

This review is on behalf of my uncle who had an inguinal hernia repaired by Dr. Harris. Dr. Harris and his staff made the entire process stress-free and easy to understand, and both the office and surgical facilities were top notch. Appointments were easy to get, and wait times were nonexistent. The surgery went according to planned, and my uncle is now hernia-free and healing nicely. Thank you to everyone involved - will definitely recommend Dr. Harris to anyone who needs an excellent surgeon.

I'm so grateful to him! If there was a 75% chance that my umbilical hernia would get worse in the future, how nice to get it taken care of now. A week after meeting him, I had the procedure to have it repaired. Dr Harris does excellent work and is very skilled! Medicare covered the procedure. I would absolutely send anyone I know, in need of hernia repair, to him.
