Good doctor and his team was great
Dr. Harris and his very nice team made the whole experience of fixing my umbilical hernia an easy one from the first visit. Good communication, very professional and punctual. The recovery was fast and a follow up visit was needed only to thank the doctor and the team.

I went to Dr. Harris for a bilateral inguinal hernia repair. His office was very professional and easy to work with. It’s been three weeks since the surgery and I’m feeling very good. Thank you Dr. Harris and staff.

Good experience
My husband had hernia at his left side, we came to Dr. Harris for help, it’s a very good experience as far as a medical procedure can go. Dr Harris is very professional, the staffs are very friendly and helpful and patient. He recovered very well from the surgery and back to normal life in less then one month.

Fantastic experience throughout the process! Dr. Harris performed laparoscopic surgery with a mesh to repair my inguinal hernia on Dec. 1. I experienced literally no pain afterward. The only sensation was a slight soreness in my abdomen where he inserted the instruments, and that was a feeling like I had done too many sit-ups. Dr. Harris provides patients an excellent recovery chart detailing how they can expect to feel and what level of activity they can perform at various points during the three weeks after surgery. After three weeks, I had a follow-up appointment and Dr. Harris cleared me to resume all normal activity - while cautioning me to ease into my regular routine. I’m now back to swimming, biking, running, hiking, weightlifting, golf and paddling with no setbacks. I also have to give a shout-out to Dr. Harris’s wonderful staff - specifically Itzel and Mari, who could not have been more professional, helpful and pleasant.

The time I spent with Dr. Harris was very limited. He was very professional and answered my questions clearly. I never felt rushed but there was not much to discuss. I would recommend Dr. Harris to my friends and family.

The care and treatment received by Dr, Harris was exceptional. Two hernia repairs were performed, which were long overdue, having become increasingly bothersome and more uncomfortable over the past several months. The office staff and surgical team were also remarkable, making my entire experience, as a patient of Dr. Harris, a positive one.
