Worst experience

Dr. Harris was recommended to me for a leg injury. The first time I met him was for a minute before my surgery and I found him rude. At every follow up appt, he met with me for two minutes and would try to run out the door like I was an inconvenience or a waste of time. Even if I tried to ask a question he would be half way out the door. I have had some rude doctors but he takes first place. For such a traumatic injury and recovery to go through, I was hoping to find a doctor with a little compassion and bedside manner. I would not recommend him.

caused scoliosis, butchered me

I do not recommend Dr. Harris. He performed a one level fusion, L4-5, and made a huge- over 6 inches- incision for that. Surgery resulted in significant iatrogenic (this means caused by surgeon) scoliosis. It was visibly evident immediately after surgery. He's also rude. Everything is the patient's fault. Stay away from him.

A very smart, wise and considerate Orthopedic doc.

Some years ago, Dr. Harris re-organized my spine - which was giving me a lot of pain from stenosis, discs and other issues. I found him to be very friendly, caring and, above all, a highly skilled orthodedic surgeon. He thoroughly explained to my husband and me what would happen and what to expect from the surgery. Now I am back again to his office - this time with trouble in a different area. He took a lot of time determining how to proceed and talking with us about his findings. My husband and I trust his judgement thoroughly and find him to be a very fine physician.

Glad I went to him

I was undecided if I would go to him because of a couple reviews I read on here. My Dr. Recommended him and my Dr. is awesome and I read the positive reviews on here, so I decided to see him. Glad I did. He was smart, polite, funny and he took his time explaining things. He was to the point and made me feel better. If your thinking about seeing him... See him! The Dr. is the best at what he does. He had a whole team looking at my images and they all came in the room to share their opinions. Dr. Harris is my second opinion as I had seen another Dr. before him. Glad I went and if I have surgery... HDr. Harris will be the Dr. I go to.

Waste of time

i went to dr. Harris on referral from my doctor. He was rude, condescending and impatient with me. He acted as if I was an imposition upon him and I left his office in excruciating pain and in tears. I drove 3 hours each way to see him. What a waste of time! I would not recommend him to examine my dog! He never even examined me! I wish I could call my insurance carrier and advise them not to pay this jerk but they would stick me with the bill in the end....
