SHC Patient, Dec 2014

I can say the my 2 care providers treated me with respect and explained everything in a professional manner. I have a very high regards to them.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

If I did not believe in Dr. Harsh & his team, I would not have agreed to the brain surgery I need. Dr. Harsh gave me time to consider all of my options & make an informed decision.

Dr. Harsh was a great doctor and he provided me the best medical service. I wish I am lucky to found another Dr. Harsh in New York City! Miss him!

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Harsh & Dr. Gibbs have kept me alive and enjoying a quality life - they are absolutely the best!

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Dr Harsh is wonderful.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Dr. Harsh spent very little time with me and was somewhat "rushed." Nurse practitioner (CT Dubrow) has not followed up despite leaving several voice mails plus direct msg. w/clinic staff.
