Foothill Ranch, CA |
Things appear to be progressing well. I had a very large hernia so recovery is taking longer than per Dr. Harris' literature. Which makes sense. But, it would have been to have been told to expect it then I would have adjusted my plans and activities accordingly. However, to get a really good review, you should check back with me in a few months. I may have great things to say then.

Dr Harris is friendly and he'll answer questions or concerns you might have!

My experience with Dr. Harris and his staff was amazing from beginning to end. I had read other reviews online prior to considering a surgeon and While there are many other surgeons closer to home, I'm glad I made the decision to drive to Newport Beach from Santa Monica. The surgery left me feeling only a little discomfort for a couple of days but no real pain. Having the right surgeon using the right materials and methods made my procedure as good as it could have been. Thank you, Dr. Harris!
