    I had my initial consultation with Dr Harris today. I found him extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Following an examination he took a generous amount of time to explain his diagnosis and his plan going forward. I am extremely confident that, following some treatment, he will resolve my issues.

    My consultation with Dr Harris is what, in an utopian world, every patient would experience. Not only is he supremely professional but also very personable which is a godsend for someone like me who needs a level of engagement to be able to relax. My appointment wasn't rushed through and Dr Harris explained his diagnosis in a jargon free way and what will happen next. Dr Harris put me at ease the moment I walked through the door and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting him.

    The whole process with Dr Harris, from start to finish, was seamless. I received appointments, treatment and follow-ups really quickly, all arranged through Dr Harris' fantastic PA, Mollie. Dr Harris always explained everything in a way that was really easy to understand as well as exploring all possible outcomes with me. His manner put me at ease and I would really recommend him to anyone who needs his services.

    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.
