Dr. Harris Says:

I know that visiting a surgeon for the first time can be a scary experience. That's why I want to express my gratitude to my patients who take the time to fill out Patient Surveys about their experience with myself, and my office. I hope that all of the feedback from my prior patients helps ease the anxiety for my future patients! Thank you to all my prior patients, Todd S. Harris, MD, FACS

Very profession staff. I knew I was in good hands and made the right choice. Very routines operation with no issues.
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.

He explained everything about hernia surgery clearly and made me feel confident that everything would work out fine, which it did. Without reservation I would recommend Dr. Harris to family and friends. I hope never to need his services again, but should I develop another hernia, there is no question that he is the doctor I would choose. Likewise, his staff was exceptional and very helpful.

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!

Dr. Harris and his staff were very professional, friendly, polite and most of all caring. I was really worried about my surgery. The morning I went in to have it done they all took the time to talk to me and explain what was going to take place step by step. Dr Harris also came in and spoke to me prior to my surgery and really made me feel at ease. I can't say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Harris and his staff. If you want the best hernia care possible, give Dr Todd a call.

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
Irvine, CA |
