    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus.

  • 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.

The best in town

Couldn't be happier with this practice. He knows his field and really demonstrates he has my best interests at heart. Warm caring and highly competent. I am quite aged and Dr Harshbarger really takes the time to understand my issues

Excellent Physician

elated with the quality of care from Dr. Harshbarger and his staff. He diagnosed and successfully treated a condition that I have suffered with for years that had been missed by my previous doctors. Shows a genuine interest for my well being and has a great command of his area of expertise. I highly recommend him...you won't be disappointed..!

Watch Out!

I would not recommend this doctor and his staff to anyone. Honestly, I would not allow this man to treat my dog. This business is poor in every way.

Business must be good!

In an attempt to make an appointment as a new patient I was never able to reach the new patient coordinator when I phoned. Her voice mail recording is sharp toned and states, "do not leave multiple messages...do not leave multiple hang ups, we will know..." Wow! But she is nice compared to the office manager who actually said, "you aren't going to get your way so we might as well end this." Then she hung up. This was during my attempt to get an appointment (they only offer one new patient appointment per day Monday-Thursday at 10am. Period.) All I can think is that business MUST be good. to have such a rude staff.
