my name is gloria and i have been going to doctor harris' office for 5 years. i have met his wife. i have met his son, i have met lora and julia and donna. and for the 5 years i have went to his clinic i have never had a single problem with this doctor, the establishment, or the office staff. i am always treated with respect and dignity when i go there. dr harris is a very well rounded and intellegent individual. he is very understanding and always looks out for his patients best interests. i have always said " a paroll officer shouldnt be a paroll officer if he has never been on paroll". and a pain management doctor shouldnt be a pain management doctor if he has never experienced pain. and that i think is what sets this man apart from the other dr.s in reno. he well understands the limits of pain that one person can endure and is very thoughtfull about how he can make his patients life's easier to deal with such bone clinching pain. he is outstanding in my book, BEST in reno. period.

Dr. Harris Wife no longer works in the office. Julie who is very down to business is not rude unless you come at her like an idiot. Her Daughter Donna who is as polite as can be works the receptionist. Dr. Harris on my initial meeting with him actually listened to me rather than just relying on my chart. Together we put together a pain management program that has been working for months. He is a little short on administering local anesthetic when doing Nerve Blocks as the initial administration of anesthetic hurts as much as the Nerve Block injection. He also is not afraid to RX heavier pain medications when needed but is very conservative in doing so. He is the best I have found in the Reno Sparks area and I have seen them all. One thing! He will charge you 15.00 to rewrite an RX should you loose one or not fill it within twelve days of the writing. Doctors should tell you that Prescriptions expire in twelve days. It does not seem like a lot to ask for a duplicate Rx.

I have been seeing Dr. Harris for over a year and have always found him and his staff helpful and they have always treated me very well. I do not feel rushed by him and he really takes time to explain the cause behind my pain. He is very fast to identify and correct and new pain issues I have which is such a nice change from past doctors. He is proactive instead of reactive but doesn't recommend expensive treatments. He is also very understanding and kind.

This doctor uses a very practical approach to pain managment which seems to be as little invasiveness as possible. Refreshing. In additition based on some basic workup was able to pinpoint one crucial cause which no one both at Mayo and Reno failed to do. His approach is very relaxed and I enjou that he shares information as if I were a colleage. There have been rare occasions when staff may have taken upon themselves {his wife} to make unwarrented diagnosis over the phone and sonetimes prescriptions wetr promised to be available with some hiccups, however I believe they all mean well and I have much confidence in Dr. Harris who is extremely knowledgeable and has been an invaluable part of my pain management. THANK YOU DOC!

I was referred to this physician for pain management. Although it seems that he has helped me with my medical issues, because of his rude staff members, I will not be returning for continued treatment. I believe all his staff members are family. Not good business !!!

At first, this doctor comes across a bit distant and intimidating, however, as I let him continue his observations just from having read my chart I then became a fan. Dr. Harris demonstrated an amazing range of knowledge going into why Fibromyalgia is a real illness to talking about abnormal bone growth in the spine and M.S. Before I met this doctor I ridiculed any doctor using the word Fibromyalgia, but no more. I was also relieved to learn that he didn't feel I had this illness and went very deep into questions and medications as well as again my chart which my primary doctor made sure contained all pertinent information. After my 1st appointment I honestly felt like I had been admitted into a private and secret medical practice that only the privileged and elite were allowed to go. That's how good this doctor is. Not only does he deal with medicine, but epidurals plus some. Also, after only 2 mos, he filled my prescription without having to look at my chart. IMPRESSIVE!!!

His office staff is horrible, one of the worst in town. He is OK, pleasant bed side manner. But I left only because of his staff. They are extremely rude, putting the all mighty dollar a priority over patient care. Too bad that his staff is his family. That makes it very difficult. I left, glad I did.
