Dr. John M Harrison 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.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

All the years that my father has been under doctor care Dr. Harrison is by far the most remarkable one!!! He took his time with my dad and then explained at length,took all of my dad's medical history,wrote it down then questioned that he had it all down correctly. My dad had a cat scan that showed a spot on his lung.....Dr.Harrison had all three(dad,mom and myself) of us to view the image on his computer and explained in-depth! Even though we were confronted with the possibility of cancer Dr.Harrison and the way he dealt with us we left his office with a positive attitude and reassurance that all would be well!!!!!!!My dad was so impressed that he said he wanted to send a thank you card to Dr.Harrison!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Dr.Harrison.
Staff said if I had been seen by another pulmonary physician, then Dr Harrison would not treat me. What was behind this was that my family physician made me an apt here and with another specialist and told me to take the first opening....needless to say, this was not the first opening so I called to cancel this appt. You can NEVER do that here.....they hold that against you as if you had committed a crime. Poor attitude and poor treatment from staff.
I liked having lots of my test done before seeing him. He spent 45+ Minutes in room with me covering everything from head to toe. I was so pleased this was my first visit with him and I feel like he will get to the bottom of what is wrong. If you need pulmonologist.believe me he is good, good bedside manner. I had went to another one couple of weeks ago he was in the room 10 mins never done any test never got a history nothing. money wasted.I worked in health care for 30 yrs I know good from bad believe me Dr Harrison is great.
