In 2002, Mobile, AL operated on by Dr. Harris for pancreatic cancer, took out 3/4 of my pancreas. Today, still alive & doing well. September 2018, looking for an RV campground in Atmore, AL. I was in car, husband in truck pulling RV. OnStar wrong, so put car in reverse instead of park, stepped out to talk to husband, car moving, door knocked me down, right leg fell under tire that ripped all flesh off bottom leg, crushed it, horrible injury. At ER, Dr. Harris called in and he saved my leg.

If you are looking for a doctor to not care about you or your well-being, this is the doctor for you! Dr. Harris told me I was "fine" when I came to see him for my follow-up appointment! I told him that I haven't had a BM in 13 days with serious abdominal pain (to the point I was crying right in front of him). Also he barely explained my biopsy results to me and I couldn't understand what he said nor did he try to explain the results! He spent maybe 5 minutes with me! PLEASE do not go see him!!
