Dr. Harris was great! It's been a while since I've been in to see him but he remembered me from the last time that we talked.

I couldn't have had a better experience with Dr. Harris. Not only was he wonderful with resolving my issues, he's also delightful!
I felt he really did not recommend anything to help me with my acne problem. I had to ask him what I could do. I also felt he was in a rush with me. Dr. Chen was my doctor before retiring and she was more concern about my questions then Dr Harris was.
Professional and responsive to my questions.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Harris. He actually listens.
I like that he offered various options to treating eczema. He made us part of the decision process rather than being authoritative.

From start to end, this was a surprisingly pleasant visit. The office and nursing staff were friendly and efficient and Dr. Harris was wonderful. He listened attentively and made accute observations, without leaping to conclusions. I would recommend him highly to anyone - particularly anyone who, like me, has been frustrated by past derm. experiences.
My daughter began seeing Dr. Harris a couple years ago, for TERRIBLE, scarring acne. It was so bad that her self esteem was suffering. Today, her face is completely clear and absolutely beautiful! I just made an appt for my son who is starting puberty and experiencing the same terrible break outs. Luckily, I know we're in good hands!
Awesome! Thorough and efficient. Highly recommended
Excellent service! Physician and staff seem knowledgable and able to communicate in non-technical verbage. Will be returning in near future.
He was friendly and professional n
It was great. He knows exactly what he's talking about and knew what to prescribe me. He will be my dermatologist from now on.
I thought Dr. Harris was excellent. I have Parkinson's Disease, and he seemed to be very knowledgeable about the disease and the higher rates of melanoma among PD patients. In addition, he had a wonderful bedside manner. He seemed very professional, kind, and caring. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Harris was both friendly and professional. It was my first time to the dermatologist and I had quite a few questions. He took my concerns seriously, answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Harris!
Excellent doctor! High recommended!
I was thrilled Dr. Harris actually took the time to listen to my concerns. I was pleasantly surprised that I did not have to wait long to see him. The visit was pleasant.
Quick and easy!
Dr. Harris was absolutely amazing. My appointment was at 11:45 am, and I was taken into the room at 11:40 am. Earliest I have ever been taken in for an appointment. I have a gash that's turning into a scar and I was very self conscious about it. He didn't prescribe me anything, but told me what would work best and I could buy the products at any drug store. He knows exactly what he is talking about. I will do a follow up with him in a few months. Overall best doctor experience I have ever had.
:Very Professional and informative.
He explained everything clearly. He presented options. He was patient with my son. He was understanding when my son showed signs of being afraid. He continued to make sure the patient had no pain. Very caring doctor & never did I feel rushed. Thank you for making it a good experience for my son.
He is quick and efficient without making you feel rushed. Dr. Harris explains things clearly.
Seemed like a nice guy. Provided concern and care mixed with wisdom and judgement. Quick but not rushy like there were people scheduled at the same time or anything. I would recommend him.

Very, very informative and collaborative.
A good listener who asked great probing questions to understand the issue better. He also was great at explaining the source/manifestation of my condition & recommended conservative treatment to start with follow up. The bonus was he also removed a troublesome mole (a secondary issue) right on the spot! Fast, easy, painless. And a great personable doctor to boot!
Very nice doctor. Would definitely recommend Dr. Harris to anyone who needed dermatological opinions or services.
Dr. Harris was very patient with my questions and concerns. He took the time to explain my options, along with the Pros and Cons for each one. He's also very tech savvy, so information and illustrations were handy. Will definitely be following up with him!

I was very happy with Dr. Harris. He knew how to take care of my problem and also gave me my yearly skin checkup. His personality was quite pleasant and I felt as though he was very knowledgeable in the field of Dermatology. I wouldn't hesitate to see him again if I had a need too.

My visit was exactly what I was hoping for. I had never met Dr. Harris prior to this visit but my wife highly recommended him. He was friendly and took care of my issue on the first visit.
Dr. Harris was great. His receptionists - who also work for another doctor - could be more helpful and attentive.
Dr. Harris made me feel very comfortable and took the time to inform me of the best options for my condition. I chose to see him based on other recommendations on this site. The other reviews were spot on. Great choice for a dermatologist.

The doctor's Forest Park office is shared with Women's Health Services, and Dr. Harris' name doesn't appear anywhere on the office's signage. Even though I have a doctor in the same offices, the lack of any mention of Dr. Harris gave me concern initially. However, everything went smoothly with my appointment and my concerns were erased.

I am so happy that Dr. Harris took care of everything at my visit. Most Doctors like to look then make you come back a second time for treatment.
