“From the initial meeting, through to the procedure and follow up call, Dr Harris updated me at every stage, providing explanations where appropriate. Each interaction was followed by a written synopsis of what we had discussed. Due to Covid all meetings ( other than the procedure itself) were conducted online. Dr Harris managed to personalise these meetings in a way that was both reassuring and bespoke to me. He was fully briefed on my lifestyle, work and domestic commitments and spoke of these where and when appropriate. Molly, Dr Harris's very able administrator, ensured all meetings and associated documentation were sent out in a professional and timely manner. Given the extensive bowel, colon and breast cancer in my family I am confident that the various tests and procedure itself have been thorough. Moreover, I have been given advice regarding an ongoing condition which should help alleviate symptoms. I could not have asked for greater care and consideration from Dr Harris and cannot recommend him highly enough. “

    Very helpful consultation with Dr Harris. He has a wonderful demeanour and was brilliant in explaining and making recommendations for my frustrating gastro problem . I cannot recommend him too highly and perhaps he could persuaded to train in some different specialities so he can sort out my other health issues.

    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.

    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.
