Worth the wait. Felt like she listened to me and actually gave me a plan to help me feel better
We entrust our entire family to Dr. Harnish. She very personable even seeing us out in public to know our children's names. She always takes her time with each person. She is very knowledgable but also has a wonderful bedside manor. We have an easy time getting appointments. Our children look forward to seeing her and so do we as a family.
I am a 58 year old male who has seen a number of physicians over the years, and I rate Dr. Harnish at the top of the list. I have been her patient for the 6 years I have been a resident of Cheyenne. I have never had an issue with getting an appointment or being seen when there was an unscheduled health problem that required an office visit. Even when seen as a walk-in patient, Dr. Harnish spends the time needed to discuss anything related to my health. I have never felt rushed. Other friends that I know that see her tell me the same thing. When you are with Dr. Harnish, you feel like you are her only patient. I feel blessed to have such a competent and caring physician. AJ, you rock!
Dr. Harnish sees my entire family and she is a very sensible, caring, and professional physician. The front office and billing, however, can be very troublesome. Once I waited 45 minutes to see her because my file somehow got lost. Also, the billing has been a high-maintenance process and we have to watch it like a hawk. Still, it's worth the trouble to keep seeing her.
