Dr Harris is very warm and friendly. He listened to my problem very patiently and explained to me in detail all the possible causes, test results and the prognosis. He also suggested long term solutions such as lifestyle changes to address my concerns.
From the moment of contacting Dr Adam Harris’s secretary for an appointment with him , the process was quick , direct and explained thoroughly , and above all gave myself huge reassurance in the path of the medical examinations that Dr Adam Harris was recommending, it has been a genuine pleasure to have met and been consulted by such a very personable and professional Consultant.
Dr Harris is welcoming, professional, good humoured and truly expert. He takes the time to explain things clearly and to make sure that you understand, but is never patronising. His level of expertise is such that he inspires great confidence. He is very highly regarded by his peers as well as by his patients. I had an attack of diverticulitis and really struggled with its severity. I had no understanding of how things could improve. Under Dr Harris's guidance I have made a full recovery: I have to live with diverticulosis but am confident now that I can. I would recommend Dr Harris without reservation and his easy manner and humour meant that I really enjoyed meeting with him.
Dr. Harris explains very clearly the aspects discussed and quickly answers questions. At 83 I am still able to follow and judge, having seen doctors in Italy for 21 years and in France for 22! I particularly like the fact that he does not over prescribe medicines and diets, which I know from experience can be harmful.
Dr Harris has always been totally professional and exceptionally approachable.

Dr Adam Harris is an excellent Consultant Gastroenterologist with whom I have had the pleasure to work with for over 20 years. He keeps up-to-date with advances in Gastroenterology and takes pride in delivering evidence-based medicine to his patients. He is professional, and is extremely clear in his verbal and written communication. He is also a highly experienced endoscopist. I have no hesitation in recommending him to patients seeking a gastroenterological opinion.
Dr Dennis Barnes
Having been a colleague of Dr Harris' for 20 years, I am pleased to be able to recommend him as an expert opinion in gastroenterology and a mentor in my early practice. Without a doubt, he always puts his patients first by making them the centre of everything he does. His knowledge is second to none and he has a keen eye for detail, often able to make a provisional diagnosis from the history and clinical examination alone, with the considered use of investigations. His approach and sense of humour puts his patients at ease from the outset and I have no hesitation in recommending him as a fellow expert in this field of medicine.
