They clearly need competent staff to schedule appts. There is absolutely NO reason to rush to get there on time and have to wait over 1 hour to see the Dr. for a consult!!

Doctor spends a lot of time with patients

Dr. Harrison listens. He spends a lot of time with his patients, cares about their well being and is very skilled.I can't think of a doctor who is more professional or knowledgeable. He cured me of a problem I've had for 40 yrs. I trust his good judgment.Sadly, his office staff (the face of the practice) is mediocre at best. A few of the self important clerks should be retrained in courtesy and time management.

I have been treating with Dr. Harrison for IBS for over 15 years, and I highly recommend him. He is empathetic, professional and thorough, and does not do unnecessary testing.
