WakeMed Patient - February 2020

"When I began having pain in my hip, there was no question that a call to Dr. Timothy Harris'' office would be the first thing to do. Previously Dr. Harris performed hip replacement surgery on my right hip. Unfortunately, it is now necessary to have my other total hip replacement. I feel privileged to have a surgeon who excels in his profession as a surgeon and who has exhibited a caring ""bedside""manner . I felt free to ask any question that came to mind before and after my surgery. It''s never pleasant to find out that surgery is required; however, knowing that Dr. Harris will be able to perform my upcoming surgery, I''m as confident and at ease as one can be under the circumstances."
