Dr Harris was recommended to me by a neighbor who had a knee replacement. My problem, a torn miniscus, was diagnosed and Dr. Harris and I, after a thorough discussion of the options, decided on surgery to clean it up.I cannot say enough about Dr. Harris' spending long sessions explaining the procedure and the care I received before, during and after the surgery. Even the recommendation by his staff of Patty Brown Physical Therapy was spot on.I have nothing but the best things to say about the entire experience and would recommend Dr. Harris without reservation to anyone in need of Orthopedic consult and/or surgery.
Dr Harris saved my leg and foot from amputation. The ER Doctors did not notice I severed an artey, He was the on call ortho doctor at ST Johns Hospital when I was brought in for an MVA.When he arrived at the ER he noticed I had no blood flow to my leg at which time he called a vascular specailist and I was rushed to surgery. Many thanks for saving my leg and footI think Dr harris should be a Truama doctor, but he is just as good of a orthopedic doctor.Would like to thank you again please call.
