Dr. Craig K Harms has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Harms is excellent; however, his staff is lazy and incompetent. Refuse to answer the phone on a regular basis, ignore messages from pharmacy and patients. Set the answering machine to say closed a long time before closing. Have had to go to the office to get them to return the pharmacy phone calls on my medications. Been waiting two weeks this time around. Dr. Harms is very good, but I would choose to go somewhere else due to his staff ignoring patients and goofing off with their friends and sales people.
I have given this office chance after chance and I am very disappointed in the overall care I have received over the past 3 years. Just recently, I called because I wasn't feeling well (had to wait 4 days to get in which is typical). I am supposed to be Dr. Harm's patient but I have only seen him once in the 3 years I have gone there. I typically have to see his PA. She is very nice and seems to care for her patients during the evaluation. HOWEVER, I had to call 3 times to get ahold of anyone about some results. Once I left a message, the second time I was put on hold for more than 15 minutes when I finally hung up, the third time I called an hour before the office was supposed to be closed and the phones were rolled. Finally, I got through to someone the next business day and I was told I would get a call back. I am still waiting. This is not the first time this has happened. I am so frustrated. I love the convenience of the office being close and like I said Denise is caring and doesn't hesitate to refer you for testing etc. But the other stuff that goes along with it is unacceptable. Oh and on the day of my appointment I was the only person in the waiting room yet I waited an hour past my appointment time to be seen.
Dr. Harms is one of the greatest Doctors I have ever had known and at almost 67 I have known a lot of Doctor's. He never rushes you and is always willing to listen. I don't think anyone could beat this man on Bedside Manner. You can tell he really cares and that's something you rarely fine anymore. I would recommend anyone to see Dr. Harm's if they are looking for a great doctor that is good and really cares about you.
