Specialties

Dr. Stephen O Harkness has the following 2 specialties

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

A full radical mastectomy

It has been 25 years since my full radical mastectomy. And if I had to do it all over again I couldn't think of any surgeon that could do my surgery but Dr. Harkness. I've had plenty of surgeries in the last 25 years but Dr. Harkness is the best every.

Lacks bedside manner. Waited 2 hours after appt. time while he went to hospital for emergency. Sent me off without papers he said he would give due to rushing to see next patient who also waited 2 hours.

Wonderful Results

Dr. Harkness repaired an inguinal hernia on me. The area was complicated by an unused stent in place and a large amount of scar tissue. He did a great job circumventing the stint and finished his job. I was out the same day with cautions not to lift anything for awhile. Post OP: EXCELLENT RESULTS. I highly recommend him.

Intelligent diagnostician and caring physician

Dr Harkness is really interested in me as a patient and wants to find the correct treatment. He fully explained my health issue. He seemed fully focused on my health and willingly spent the time with me. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends as a doctor like doctors used to be-interested in their patients care and their patient's understanding of their treatment and outcomes. Not many doctors today invest their time in patient care as he has. Good man
