“I am extremely happy with the care I received. Dr Harbin was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions and concerns. I am happy that I had him as a surgeon as he has the highest level of training. I wouldn’t hesitate to see him again if needed.”

Patient Rating:
“Dr. Harbin was definitely approachable and very helpful in helping me understand the condition of my hips and why surgery was a good option. The surgery itself went well and the next day he stopped in to check up on me, although I am pretty sure it was his day off. I am an equestrian and this hip replacement has dramatically altered my ability to continue to follow my passion and I have found that I have essentially no pain now when on my horse. Everything progressed pretty much as he indicated it would, I felt I could reach out to him or Anne with any issue or problem and receive prompt, courteous, and caring care. I can't say enough good things about my experience. Having the next hip done soon and anticipate that now that I know what the experience is like, this will go even more smoothly.”
