Jules Hooper. – Oct 07, 2021
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.

I had an umbilical hernia and was very nervous to get it fixed. Walking into Dr. Harris’s office in Newport Beach, his staff was very welcoming and friendly. Dr. Harris and his staff made me feel very comfortable about my surgery and answered all of my questions.

Claudia Frias – May 20, 2021
I saw Dr Harris today for a hernia consultation. My primary doctor diagnoised it and I have already visited another surgeon who confirmed it as well. I was seeing Dr Harris to get a second opinion. When I arrived at the office, I was told that the paperwork that I filled out and emailed back to the office was never received. They then checked the inbox of the person I sent it back to and they found it. Then they said that 3 things were not filled in, and I had to show them on my phone that everything was actually filled in. When I saw Dr Harris, he did a quick check of me standing up and he said I didn't have a hernia. He didn't seem interested in discussing it more even though I told him 2 other doctors have told me that I do - and that I was shown how to push it back when it pops out. The whole "consultation" lasted 10 minutes and he rushed out of the exam room. My impression is that the office is terribly disorganized and the Dr is not interested in treating older patients.

I highly recommend Dr. Harris as a surgeon. I’ve had great experience on every thing so far! Location with tons of parking and very easy access. Staff was amazing!!! Super friendly, helpful and kind. Dr. Harris was great on communication, honesty and being realistic with situation. Such a good connection with me as a patient! I’ll recommend Dr. Harris for anyone with or without insurance. They are very clear on prices and fees! I got a procedure on my hernia plus extra seroma removal without any extra charge!! All I can say is very rare to find business like this today and I’m so lucky to have Dr. Harris to take care of me. Thank you so much!

Tom – Mar 26, 2021
Had a hernia that has been bothering me for the past 3 years and couldn't get any help in other hospitals. So thankful that my daughter found this clinic that specialized in hernias and didn't have to worry about not having insurance. The doctor and staff was amazing and super understanding of the language barrier I had and allowed my daughter to come in with me. My hernia is now officially fixed and all I have left is a small scar.

Great hernia surgeon! My husband had umbilical Hernia surgery several years ago and ended up with a large ugly scar. My scar is basically non-existent! Dr Harris and the staff were completely professional and so organized. None of my questions went unanswered. Surgery was quick with minimal discomfort. Recovery was fast and back to,surfing in only 3 weeks!
