Dr. Harrison does a pretty good job of explaining things to me. My one concern is that I am trying to loose weight and Dr. Harrison provided many options, I suffer from chronic migraines and exercise is VERY difficult, but only diets/exersise have been discussed. I am considered morbidly obese.

Dr Karen Harrison is the most caring provider I have ever had. they need more doctors so it wouldn't take so long to get appointment with dr Harrison. she is usually booked way in advance so if a health issue needed attention before the next follow up appointment it would be very difficult to get in and see her.

I have such respect for her because she was once my dad's physician and also cared for my sister. She does not hurry me out, and is always friendly and helpful. She is also helpful with retired teacher meetings and serves on the school board. The only negative thing I can say is that it is hard to get an appt. with her because she is so booked up.

I see NO reason for the medical assistant to be in the room with the Dr. during the entire visit.I was very uncomfortable this last time as the assistant seemed to talk and ask more questions than my Dr.
