James Harris, M.D.
My first impression of him was wow, he is a straight to point man with lots of knowledge on the different procedures. Overtime my impression didn't change about him. The staff was great. I had one minor upset with the surgery coordinator, but all was corrected and fine. He performed my surgery, I had no complications and NO PAIN. I'm truly impressed with him. I would recommend him to anyone who considers this surgery. Dr. Harris really emphasized the aftercare and the program is very structured. Overall I would rate him on a scale of 1 to 10 as a 10. His bedside manner and surgical competence were both great! Thanks Dr. Harris!

October 1, 2009 I made contact with a local bariatric surgeons office. I expressed my interest in the surgery etc. They mailed me this packet of paperwork to fill out and return. The packet contained a 12 step process from the initial 1st consultation to getting approved for surgery. Naturally, I thought this will be a piece of cake, but boy was I wrong! It's a journey!
