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 and the City of London.

With the treatment plan, he was transparent about what may for may not work, thereby managing my expectations of reality, yet always showing confidence and hope. I would absolutely recommend him.

    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.
