If you value your life, don't have Dr. Harmeling as your doctor. He will not diagnose, he keeps no medication samples at all, too much holistic, the front office is a complete incompetent mystery. He does do the cool bro' thing until he goes into robot mode, and you somehow feel like you are not a patient but some threat to him.

Dr. Harmeling seems cool at first, but then it's obvious he is just acting. A friend of mine saw Dr. Harmeling for years for a chronic condition that caused him a lot of pain that sent him to the hospital almost a lot. Did this doctor ever refer my friend to a pain specialist? No. Dr. H acts all nice and cool, but when it comes time to ask him to order a test or make a referral to a specialist (time for him to do his job), it's like pulling teeth. He must get rewarded from insurance companies at the end of the year for keeping costs down with his patients. If you are thinking of choosing this doctor, look elsewhere. Also his receptionists are totally rude and heartless. They must hate their jobs because they treat patients like dirt. If you want an all around bad experience, you now know where to go.

Staff is completely and utterly incompetent. Doctor is manipulative and rude... assumes he knows everything and unyielding or unwilling to be wrong. Talks down to patients and is "rushed"... like he'd rather be out surfing than listening to patients. Staff fails to communicate clearly and takes the approach that their**** don't stink, when clearly they do. I would not recommend this doctor to even my worst enemy.

Rushes in and rushes out, doesn't take time to listen to patient concerns. Can be condescending -- especially to older patients -- and isn't very thorough in exams (3 annual physicals over 3 years and never had to remove any clothing???). If I could find another provider who would take my insurance, I'd leave him.

My experience was that he is curt, controlling, manipulative, condescending and can't be trusted to maintain confidentiality.

Dr. Harmeling is very smart and very nice. One of the most easy-going docs I have ever met. And he takes time to explain what is wrong and what to do about it.
