SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Outstanding courtesy throughout appointment.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Dr Harris was exceptionally proficient, giving thorough explanations of my condition that I could understand and apply. Thank you Dr Harris. You made the arduous trip worth the effort.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Though I would recommend this doctor to others, I would warn my friends that he uses technical terms without explanation. I had to stop him multiple times to say, "I don't understand the words that you are using." He continued to do that throughout our meeting. Annoying but expected from a doctor! Some decade, you'll start training them to speak in a language that their patients can easily understand...

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

I would highly recommend Dr. Harris to any family or friend that can access Stanford with their health care provider.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Well all is very good how they attend.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Worst bedside manner I have ever experienced. Rude, dismissive, acted as if he was to important to be there, spent 2 minutes with me & refused to explain anything or discuss condition/option.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

recommend Your hospital and the doctors all the time to people that I know

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Both Dr Harris and Dr Mc Farland are excellent in every way.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Of course I do recommend your treatment is very comfortable.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Good.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Everything was well done!

SHC Patient, May 2017

dr Harris has been my doctor for a long time. he is excellent across the board

SHC Patient, May 2017

In spite of sending an email to him, he never replied to it. Yet he questioned as to why I did not get an ultrasound study done before my appt. slot. I felt dumb founded. His staff communications need improvement URGENTLY.

SHC Patient, May 2017

I felt as if I was being seen by my regular physician. He didn't seem concerned and I left feeling like I had wasted my time.

SHC Patient, May 2017

Dr. E.J. Harris is an excellent physician. He has kept me walking - A great feat with this compromised body.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Dr. Harris does not call after procedure even if there are some problems called in. Nurses do however.

Dr. Harris has exceeded all expectations and been one of the best care providers ever.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Good experience during my visit to the hospital.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

All in all this was an excellent encounter.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

IT;S ALL GOOD

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Harris was very dismissive of my concerns. While he was certain, (with little explanation to me), that my symptoms were not a vascular problem his demeanor was condescending and unconcerned when I asked questions about my next steps. His general response was "all I can tell you is, it's not a vascular problem, I don't have anything else to tell you. I've had the concerns for almost 3 years and as the frequency and discomfort increases I was trying to get advice on what type of doctor might be able to help. He just didn't seem to care & was clearly bothered by me prescription for more help.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr Harris and his team are the best in the world, they have my complete confidence.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Couldn't have asked for a better person, because I already had one.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Very, very satisfied

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr. HARRIS is very blunt - he "tells it like it is" - Did not get the sense he cared, however; he was impersonal to us. Very competent but....

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Harris has a natural manner that inspires patient confidence that his results fully affirm.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Dr. Harris is world class.

Dr. Harris is truly wonderful! He built a stint to take the swelling out of my left leg several years ago..closely montors the vascular functions......His professional, caring and kind manner makes me confident that I have the finest vascular surgeon in the world......Thank you Stanford!

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Perfect

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Grateful for Dr Harris' expertise and comfortable manner.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

really knowledgeable and skilled but I would like broader explanation e.g. why is scar tissue so often an answer to why something didn't work? Must be common. What is anyone trying to do to get around it? I have enough advanced degrees to understand an explanation and even a brief telling of research results and aims;

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Terse.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Very good experience.
