Dr. Harris is likely the most respected cardiovascular surgeon in Jackson and was the #1 surgeon recommended to me after being told I needed coronary bypass surgery. He responded quickly and agreed to perform the operation within a week. He has a great team of nurses and technicians that assist him. I had no complications and am told that everything went smoothly and as expected. I fully understand why my doctor friends directed me to Bill Harris.

In April of 2016 Dr Harris and his team saved my life. It was called a miracle by many that I lived through such an emergency surgery, the odds were very slim. Here is a doctor with truly God given knowledge and skills. My family was so thankful for his compassion and the way he communicated with them during such a trying time. Mississippi and Baptist Health Services are so fortunate to have this doctor on staff and how blessed I feel to have been his patient
