May 09, 2023
Our 2 daugthers were DX with eye cancer (5 months & 1 month) in both their right & left eyes. Dr. Harris treated both girls, collaborated with their ped and onc to make sure they were all on the same page, & consulted with other doctors when necessary. She was to the point & discussed treatment options with us before implementing the plan & made sure we were aware of risks & benefits. She took the time to answer our questions. Dr. Harris was able to save both girls' eyes/vision. We tried to spare our girls as much pain as possible & with Dr. Harris' approval we had all blood work (ordered by their onc) done while they were under anesthesia with her. She successfully advocated for our family when the hosp was demanding implemetation of new policies that were detrimental to us after 7 years of visits. We have since moved to TX & the doctor here has continually complimented our daugther's treatment areas saying, "The Dr. who treated her did a fantastic job!" WE AGREE. So Thankful!!
