I was a patient of Dr. Harris for 7 years. She did my first surgery, a laproscopic surgery for endometriosis and delivered my first two babies. I trusted her completely. For my 3rd pregnancy, I hoped to go without an epidural and thought having a midwife stay with me during transition might help me achieve my goal. I went to one office visit with a midwife in town, and realized that I just wanted to go back to Dr.Harris. She knew my history, and I felt a connection with her. I did not feel comfortable with the midwife I visited. I did not realize my files were transferred by going to that one appointment; but they must have been. When I tried to schedule an appointment with Dr. Harris, excited to return, I was told I could no longer be a patient b/c my files were transferred. I explained that I did not leave for mistrust reasons, only to have a midwife with me during labor. I also explained that I had endometriosis, and would never dream about having another Dr. operate on me if the need arose. I was never planning on having a midwife treat me for endometriosis! None of this mattered. It was the policy. It did not matter that I had been a patient there for 7 years, and that I had given them tons of money! I have heard that this happens often. It seems to break the Dr.s code of "do no harm". I felt rejected, hurt, and abandoned by Dr. Harris when I really felt like I needed her during a difficult pregnancy. However, I blame her office staff mostly. I am now 16 weeks pregnant and still trying to figure out who my provider will be for this 3rd pregnancy. I would not recommend another patient to the office b/c of the coldness of the office staff that I have experienced. I suppose if you do go to this office, hope and pray that you never end up needing emergency surgery far away from home where your files might need to be transferred. You would no longer be able to be a patient there ever again upon your return home. This policy is absurd and needs amendment. I love Dr. Harris. However, I hope the office amends this hurtful policy that only makes these good Dr.'s look unprofessional and cold.
