Friend. I loved Dr. Harris and her staff! The entire time I felt like she was my advocate and really listened to what I wanted. After having four children I was ready to have my pre-baby tummy back. Her caring staff was always available for my questions and I appreciated all of their care. I also felt like she stands behind her work 100%.

Good doctors deserve some help in getting the word out Like anybody else I did extensive online research when I was considering having breast augmentation. Two things were very important to me: 1) That my physician shared my philosophy of beauty (or at least understood and respected it) and 2) that they had the expertise needed in order to successfully deal with an anatomical variation known as pectus excavatum. Being a health care professional, I feel I can tell when a doctor truly enjoys what they do and cares about the patient's needs. After a consultation with a "marketing savvy" cosmetic surgeon I was horrified at how easily a woman may be bullied into an appearance that didn't suit her. I was getting ready to look into out of state doctors when a friend suggested Dr. Harris. After meeting with her, I was very relieved to have found a local surgeon I liked. She took the time to listen, give me an overview of the procedure, answer questions, take measurements, go over the breast implant catalogue, discuss my concerns over pectus excavatum, etcetera. I walked out of her office certain that she knew what I wanted and that we had a good plan to achieve it. In addition, when I was tempted to deviate from the original plan, she did her duty in giving me an honest professional opinion, which I was so grateful for! The anesthesiologist that assisted in my procedure was also very caring and pleasant, which put me at ease. Of note, her fees and payment arrangements were also very reasonable and accommodating. The staff was also kind and pleasant. Overall, I definitely recommend Dr. Harris.

Dr. Harris is everything you will want in a plastic surgeon and more. Her attention to detail is a true talent based from her art background. She spent more time than any other doctor that I went to for a consultation. I felt more comfortable with her and therefore more confident in my decision to have my surgery because of her professional conduct and bedside manner. If she thought I was a little hesitant than we would spend more time talking about that hesitation. Natural outcome and exercise were key to me... I had absolutley no doubt in my mind that I made the right decision to do my surgey because it was truly what I wanted for myself. It was more than a confidence booster... it was a personal decision that was the right choice for me. After seeing her in the OR, I was ready. I am so happy with the result and had a better outcome than I could have ever imagined. My result is truly a part of me that I can't imagine being without...breast implants. I would highly recommend Dr. Harris and her super kind and supportive staff that held my hand the entire way through...OUTSTANDING. If you have consulted with another doctor please consult with her and compare. I am in real estate and would never just tell a client to get one bid. Go with the best!!! I will be back. Thank you for everything...from start to finish and beyond and exceeded my expectations. She really cares and that is hard to find in any industry. Amazing!! Also... They called and made sure I was not working 2 days after surgey...yea very important to listen and follow post surgery instructions!

I could not be more pleased with the results of my breast implant removal and lift. I had decided I would never feel really good about my appearance again, but Dr. Harris changed that. She did what I thought could not be done. She is truly an artist, and also cares about her patients and what is important to them. She is a real professional. The staff is great as well. I would recommend Dr. Harris and her staff to anyone considering plastic surgery. I will definitely be back to see them.

I highly recommend Dr. H. I spent nearly 13 years thinking and planning on getting a tummy tuck. I talked to three other cosmetic surgeons, and Dr. H was by far the easiest physician to talk with and was willing to patiently answer my many questions. Although I am sure she would be a terrific cosmetic surgeon for men, every woman who is considering cosmetic surgery should see Dr. H. She understands why and what is important to women about cosmetic surgery. Now that the surgery is over, I could not be happier. Having the surgery and having Dr. H do it were two of the best decisions I have ever made. She is an angel.

Dr. H is a great physician and surgeon. My procedure was the first surgery I had ever had and she made me feel very comfortable right from my first visit. She gave me all the information about my procedure beforehand and continues to follow up with me to make sure all we well after. I am very happy with my results. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful plastic or cosmetic surgeon and practitioner.

I was referred to Dr. H by a trusted friend. My decision to have surery was not an easy one, until I had my consultation with Dr. H. I immediately felt I could trust her and felt confident in my decision to move forward with surgery. It was very successful and she changed my life.

Dr. H was an amazing doctor before, during and after my surgery. I always felt overly comfortable with her from the moment I met her. I had visited other plastic surgeons before choosing to use Dr. H, but the moment I met her, my husband and I both just felt a sense of ease about her. She has always had my best interests in mind and was very honest about how the entire process works from consultation to total recovery! Dr. H is not only a plastic surgeon, but she is also an amazing artist. This is a unique quality to have in a plastic surgeon, many can study and practice to become a plastic surgeon, but not everybody is born with the natural ability to be an artist. Dr. H was an artist first who turned her love into a fantastic profession. People often ask me if I would have my surgery again, and with no hesitation I would say 100% yes, and only with Dr. H. I have and will continue to recommend her to my family and friends. Not only is she amazing, but so is everyone that works with and for her.
