As always, Dr. McHarris was an excellent listener. She's very interested in me as a whole person, takes her time, and is absolutely nonjudgmental. She's careful to educate but never to push, offering options to treatment based on my goals. Shecould easily have treated only the presenting condition but went beyond to look for underlying causes that could be contributing. In the end, we came up with a multi-modal approach that works for me and we developed a follow-up plan to monitor its effectiveness. I'm so grateful to have found Dr. McHarris.

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 haveon file. Otherwise really great. The visitation was short, about 15 minutes or so.

This was my first appoint with Dr. McHarris. She is an excellent listener and took her time getting a complete medical history. She was very knowledgeable and recognized that I also had a fair understanding of my condition; I felt likeshe and I were a team. She made sure I fully understood the next steps in my treatment and answered all my questions. I trust her and feel like I can ask her anything. Wonderful doctor!
