Dr. Harris is the Best! He is caring, kind, a good listener, honest but most importantly, he is a top notch doctor!
Brandon, MS |
Dr. Harris has treated 3 generations of my family since his first day out of med. school!! He is the best dr. we have ever seen and we've seen MANY MANY gp's and specialists of every kind. He knows so much about the medical profession in general from insurance, to drugs and the smallest details that can indicate a major problem. He is very down to earth and will explain everything to you in terms you can understand and he is so patient and caring, (Ran out of room). He is WONDERFUL and GREAT!

I would not be alive had Dr. Harris not been so aware of my fatal condition when no other doctor could find the problem. He ordered test to find that I had Graves Disease--{ I was slowly dying} & had me go to Baptist to the Radiology to have my Thyroid burned out and then gave me replacement. He sent me this year for ultrasound where by accident they found I had kidney cancer which was rapidly removed. He saved my life not once but twice. Best Diagnostic Dr. in the South- Thanks for my life!

From the very first office visit, Dr. Harris was very nice. He has an excellent bedside manner! He takes time and explains everything that's going on with you and strategizes a game plan for you to get better. He has never failed me, and I'm in his office more than I'd like to be. Any doctor that uses the term snot is alright in my book!! May God continue to bless your practice William Keith Harris!!
