Both the doc and nurse were super attentive.
The appointment was to discuss my medications and our next step, we came up with a good plan of attack for my meds going forward. Dr. McHarris seems to have the patient and their well being in mind when she meets with you.
Very reassuring initial visit: professional demeanor, obvious listening, full exchange of information, transparency of agendas, co-responsibility for my health care.
She was very pleasant and listened to my list of issues. My only one small observation was that I noticed she didn't write much down as I was listing my symptoms. My previous doctor used to write everything down to have on file. Otherwise really great. The visitation was short, about 15 minutes or so.

She listened to my concerns and made recommendations based on the exam. I had been lax on doing routine testing, but she was not in the least judgmental, and I really appreciated that.
MD Attentive and compassionate, patient and thorough. Staff efficient and kind. They all speak slowly and loudly so my 91 yo mom can hear and understand. Thank you for excellent care!

Best doctor I have ever seen and I am 76. Pleasant, not aggressive, informed. A nice visit. She is a great doctor!!! Bless her.

It did not meet expectations. The building and office staff all seemed unkempt and lackadaisical. Dr. McHarris seemed fine, but I don't intend to keep her as a PCP.
She is a very competent physician. She is very engaged in asking questions and listening to what you have to say.
Dr. McHarris 1. listens 2. suggests self-care strategies that work 3. prioritizes my health issues so I'm not overwhelmed.
I love Louise McHarris! She is an excellent doctor and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr. McHarris is extremely personable. She always listens to my concerns and shares her insight with me. I feel as though she genuinely has my best interest in mind. Furthermore, the FannoCreek staff is excellent. For example, today I was having my blood drawn and felt faint. The phlebotomist and nurse staff acted quickly to ensure my safety and comfort. Fanno Creek Clinic is a shining example of what a medical clinic should be. Thank you!
First appointment, but was seen immediately, and had plenty of time to review my health history. Appreciate her thorough and practical professionalism.
She listened more than talked, was aware of my (long) medical history, and gave clear follow-up guidance. I left knowing what to do and when to do it... and when to be concerned.
I really appreciate the thoughtful way she approaches issues, and her willingness to have an in-depth conversation. I trust her recommendations.
Next day appointment, very little wait, and very caring yet professional manner. Will definitely return for more general medical needs.
Dr. McHarris is a wonderful listener. She patiently listens to all my concerns and gives me good advice, based on experience and current research.
We discussed my medical issue and she gave me clear options and helped me decide which was the best way to go very good bedside manner.
The visit accomplished the goal of why I was there.
The healthcare provider was amazing. The medical assistant was far to be desired. In my time as a MA, which was only 8 years ago, you were to be kind, courteous and transparent...let alone be educated in current events and say your name. This person, of whom I never gained her name, didn't bother to introduce herself, spoke AWAY from me, was crass and disrespectful and made me feel awkward when I had to explain somethi g to her that she didn't understand, as it is a widely known hot topic for LGBTQ patients. I NEVER want to have her again. I adore Louise McHarris as my primary, but that MA is NOT to be my tech ever.
Dr McHarris is very knowledgeable, confident and in touch with my health needs.
We left a physician in Hood River and never thought we would be so lucky as to find Dr. McHarris. She listens.
She was very nice and listened to all my concerns and addressed them all. She even directed me to someone else that could help me further in my next visit.
She was prepared and very attentive to my needs.
Dr McHarris is friendly, thoughtful, wise, and doesn't rush things, even when the clinic is super busy. She always follows through with Rx and lab work.

She is fantastic. Listens to everything I say. Extremely helpful.
She was efficient, kind, and thorough. I scheduled the appointment early before work and made it out in a very timely manner. I found the Dr. McHarris to be very knowledgable and caring.
She is very kind and really listens to you. Really enjoy her
Dr. McHarris was OK. Nice enough, she listened and answered my questions adequatelyly. I did not sense and real interest or curiosity on her part to get to know me or really care about me as an individual. I am sure she is very competant in her knowledge base . Disappointed, but not surprised there was mot much of a connection there. . I am looking for a Dr. who has the ability to connect with me as a patient and show genuine concern and interest.
She was great!
She came in remembering what we had talked about three months ago. She had no notes. I believe she genuinely cares.

Dr. McHarris is very personable, knowledgable and compassionate. She explains things so that one can understand them, and she doesn't talk down to her patients (as some doctors do). I recommend her highly!
My husband and I were looking for a new primary care doctor. Positive comments led us to Dr McHarris and we are so glad. She definitely took the time to get to know us and made sure all our questions were answered. We look forward to working with her again.
I very happy to have found Dr Louise McHarris after many years of not having a doctor who remembered my issues. The clinic's system is very efficient too— no waiting with others who may be contagious. I'm very happy, thank you.

Dr. McHarris was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful with answering my questions with certain issues. On top of that, she was very attentive, nice and understanding of my concerns. I'd highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr. McHarris is very kind, professional. interested and informed. Never had a better doctor. Staff was great. The appointment was most helpful.
Dr. McHarris has been our doctor for several years and we feel very fortunate to have her as our doctor. She is always focused on us, no matter how busy she is.
She always listens to my issues, even asking about the stress in my life and other contributing factors to my health. I look forward to my visits even when I'm not feeling well.
I really enjoyed working with Dr. Mcharris initially. However, I booked an appointment with her and unfortunately had to cancel two of them in a row due to a hectic and demanding work scheduled. I did all the right things; called the front office, apologized and canceled the appointment myself. However, I then got a letter from Dr. McHarris to let me know she was no longer interested in being my PCP due to my recent cancellations. Now, if I had been a no-show, I would have understood. If I would have cancelled last minute, I would have understood, but in this case I did as much as I could given the circumstances and she wrote me off immediately. When I called the office and asked to talk to Dr. McHarris to clear things up, her front office folks were rude and told me it wasn't possible for me to connect with her. Thankfully I found a much nicer and understanding PCP instead.
I went in to update my shots and asked about my birth control and how I'd go about weaning off If I wanted kids in the future and she labeled the visit as an "Infertility consultation" which lead to a hefty bill a few months later since insurance does not cover that. Im not sure how my visit was labeled such and would never go back again. I have an active birth control prescription and they have records of all the shot updates I had that day but they won't reverse the claim. I still can't wrap my head around how they can label the visit this way. I found a new doctor. I don't need any future surprises...
My visit was same as before...EXCELLENT!!! The entire staff is kind, courteous, and professional.
Dr McHarris is thoughtful and thorough. She is familiar with my record and is always willing to do what is necessary to help. I highly recommend her.
Sarah & Ashley, in the lab, helped me so much today. They did more than the minimum. That's what health care professionals should be like.
Wonderful caring and intelligent doctor. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an excellent GP.
Dr. McHarris is an excellent, professional and friendly sincere professional. I feel like she really knows me.
I was running late and the receptionist calmly gave me direction and informed the doctor that I was late. Once I got to the office, the receptionist sent me straight back to be seen. The nurse and Dr. McHarris listened carefully to my rare disease needs and accommodated my health care requests. Her office is very accommodating and caring!!
Friendly, professional, answered questions and concerns precisely and clearly.
I feel very comfortable around her and sharing my medical concerns; I know she'll have good advice and take good care of me.
Dr McHarris really listened to my descriptions, and suggested what sounds like a really reasonable path forward. I loved the convenience of on-site labs, I was able to be out the door with several tests on the way within 15 minutes after she ordered them.
Dr McHarris is wonderful. I have searched long and hard for the perfect physician for my quirky needs. She is such a breath of fresh air. She's open, communicative, wonderfully resourceful, and just a lovely human being. I recommend her to all!

This was my first visit to Fanno Creek Clinic. Doctor and her staff were pleasant and helpful. But even more impressive was the fact that Dr. McHarris had researched a specific concern of mine before she met me.
I LIKE HER
Everything was great!
She is a very good doctor. Very attentive. I recommend.
She is an excellent physician.

Thorough, professional, and gentle. Listened attentively to what I had to say. Very pleased.
Excellent. Short wait, discussed issue, decided on course of action.
I am a medical professional, and I love Dr McHarris. She is kind, honest, and thorough. She has a very high level of integrity. She was not scared by my tears when I took (read: dragged) my husband to her because he has been fatigued. I had no idea I was so worried. She very graciously interviewed us both and made excellent recommendations. She has always been on time. I have never felt rushed (and, boy, can I talk). I can always get an appointment the next day if I need to.
I am always treated well and Dr. McHarris takes the time to really talk to you.
Good meeting. Attentive. Open. Good listener. Did not feel rushed. Open to referrals. She was great!
She was very kind and took her time. She listened to all of my questions and did not rush me. A nice change from what usually happens at a doctors apt.
We accomplished what I had hoped to accomplish.
Very good. I have been going to this clinic for a very long time, but my primary care physician retired and I needed to sign on with someone else. I feel like I will be in good hands.
Dr McHarris is a fantastic, understanding, very competent doctor. I was SO sorry to lose Dr Gragnola, and was hoping my new primary care physician would have the qualities I liked so much in him. I got very lucky!!! I feel very comfortable with Dr McHarris, I trust her, and know I can be myself. She listens and gives great advice. Also, kudos to the awesome lab pros who make even the most uncomfortable tests as painless as possible. If I can laugh while I'm getting blood drawn? That's pretty awesome. And my thanks to the nice people who run the front desk area....you all are great!!!!
Absolutely loved Dr. McHarris. She was completely genuine and concerned with my medical issues and quickly made a plan to relieve me of symptoms. I may have finally found "my" doctor!
