About

Dr Adam Harris is a Consultant Gastroenterologist and Physician with a special interest in dyspepsia, gastro-oesophageal reflux, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel diseases. He qualified from Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1987 and gained the degree of Doctor of Medicine in 1995 following two years of full-time academic research within the field of gastroenterology.

Dr Harris worked for the NHS for over 30 years, working as a consultant in Tunbridge Wells from 1997 until 2017, and now practices exclusively privately in Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, London's West End, Canary Wharf and the City of London. He was actively involved in the British Society of Gastroenterology and held the roles of Secretary and Chair within the Clinical Services & Standards Committee. In October 2007, he received a National Bronze Clinical Excellence Award, recognizing his “sustained and dedicated contribution to the NHS over and above any contractual requirement”.

Dr Harris has been involved in multiple publications, both within his field and more generally. He co-authored the NICE guidelines for ulcerative colitis, as well as the BSG Handbook for Independent Practice.

Explanation

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.

General (Internal) Medicine

Is a colleague

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.
