Bio

Dr. Harris completed his MD training at Texas A&M University & his Family Medicine residency at Texas Tech Health Sciences Center. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Family Practice & is a member of the American Medical Association. Dr. Harris practiced Family Medicine in the Aberdeen, Washington area for 14 years prior to moving to Olympia, Washington in 2004. He has a special interest in the full spectrum of the human condition from urologic concerns to migraine headache; newborn care to urgent care issues; or from allergies to chronic pain. His philosophy of treating patients includes listening to the complete details to most clearly define a patient's problem(s); & then offering a spectrum of treatment options that most closely fit the patient's comfort level.

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer! It is the only medication that has actually worked for me. I just hate the side effects. However, I would rather live with side effects than RLS!
