There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

I drive by at least a thousand physicians from Clarks Summit to Wilkes Barre to see Dr. Harris. Why ? I believe him to be one (1) of the best physicians I have ever met. I have complete faith and trust in his expertise.

I went because I am having issues of fatigue. He was more concerned with my weight loss. Even after explaining several times I changed to a healthy lifestyle. I work out and eat healthy. He ended up running tests trying to find why I lost weight, not for my fatigue issues.

I wanted to go on a new medicine. He wouldn't let me do that since the last visit 6 mts. ago. I believe he is fed up w/me because of past visits.

I always feel like Dr. Harris' scheulde is so jam packed he has to get through his appointments quickly. I don't feel like that is Dr. Harris' idea but rather Geisinger's staffing process.
Sep 22, 2015
I travel 2 hours just to see Dr Harris
Sep 8, 2015
I do not appreciate when I am spoken to in a condescending manner. I came to this dr for help and he suggests I have dangerous surgery!!!

Aug 14, 2015
Dr. Harris is a trusted and very experienced physician.
Aug 11, 2015
I would recommend absolutely recommend Dr. Harris to anyone who needed an endocrinologist. He listened to my health issues and symptoms and seemed genuinely concerned. He even caught an issue completely outside of my thyroid condition.
Aug 5, 2015
The first words the dr. spoke to me were - "you wouldn't be diabetic if you had gastric bypass".

June 17, 2015
again in regards to Dr Harris. I was told not to use medical words because I'm not a dr or a nurse. he was very rude to me. then said he would be in touch via email if he thought he could help me.
