Patient Reviews

Dr. Harmon and her nurse are always attentive and are good listeners. We always review meds and discuss as needed. I have great confidence in both of them.

She is curious, ambitious, eager to resolve issues. She leaves nothing undone. She is a finisher. Under her care and direction there are always improvements. While I have chronic illnesses, attention to detail keeps them well managed. She gets results. I admit I need to do more because she inspires it in at least me, to strive for excellence in a provider-care + patient' self care teamwork effort.

DR Harmon always goes up over and beyond especially since I have a rare disease. she is very good about either reading materials to educate herself so she can better take care of me or she also will contact the specialists at the U of I

I came in for a pre cataract surgery exam. Dr. Harmon was and always is, very thorough and takes time to ask questions and address any concerns I have.

It was a busy day and time the provider had available was less than usual. She took the time to research a problem but relayed the answer through the nurse.

Dr Harmon and staff were all very supportive on a stressful day.

I got the feeling the provider was in a hurry and therefore was not as thorough as she should have been. Many aspects of the exam were not done. She does do a good job of listening to any concerns so not sure if that distracts her from completing the other aspects of the exam.

Dr. Harmon is a fabulous physician! She has always had concern for any of my healthcare concerns!!

Dr Harmon took the time to investigate the cause of my injury and coordinate with specialists. She uncovered the real conditions and agreed that removal of driving privileges was unwarranted - a great burden removed from me.

I love Dr Harmon! she was there for me in a very real way when I was dealing with being my Mothers caretaker. when mom passed she and her staff were a soft place to land with my grief.
