    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 multiple clinics in West Kent, 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. He has also been active in research on topics ranging from ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease to Helicobacter pylori and acid-related disease.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    I have always found Dr Harris, to be very welcoming, professional and caring to my wife and I. In comparison to so many other Dr’s he sets a very high quality bench mark, taking the time in fully exploring health symptoms with a detailed observation of his findings. He then immediately dictates a detailed letter to my own GP Surgery, together with recommendations of prescriptions as well as requirements for future meetings.

    "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."
