“I found Dr. Harbin to be an excellent communicator and very comfortable! I am confident that I am in good hands if and when I need surgery.”
– Linda G.
“Dr. Harbin was wonderful!”
– Elizabeth K.
“After a long process that was not working, I was sent to see Dr. Harbin. At that first visit, he told me it would be a prolonged treatment, but we would get there. I would probably always need a cane to walk, but give it some time. He was exactly right, to take a great deal of time but now I am doing great and walking without a cane! I was hopeful at the beginning, and now I'm delighted to be able to take care of my young granddaughters and to do the things I did not think would ever be possible again. Thank you so much to Dr. Harbin and Ann!”
– Adele C.
“Dr. Harbin wastes no time, is very thorough and knowledgeable. Have been treated by other Drs. in this practice due to not realizing I am not 39 years old anymore and seen to injure more easily. All have been outstanding.”

“Dr. Harbin is very professional; a good listener answers all questions you may have. His staff is friendly, professional and responds quickly to patient needs. I had surgery for total hip replacement and was out of the hospital the next day. Three days after surgery, I am using only a cane and can put full weight on the leg. I am very grateful that Dr. Harbin is my doctor. I am without pain in my leg and lower back for the first time in many years.”
– Melanie J.
“This is the first time in six months I drove home, and my hip didn't hurt me. The real test will be when I sleep tonight, but I have never felt more critical then I did today in Dr. Harbin's office. His staff and he himself made me feel so good! Thank you!”
– Johna S.
“Dr.Harbin explained the procedure and post-treatment thoroughly. As painful as bilateral knee replacement surgery is, he explained that it takes time to heal, and that process was up to me. Everything is going great. His positive attitude was key to my success.”
– Drew B.
“Dr. Harbin went out of his way, coming back from Christmas vacation to do my surgery.”
– Stanley B.
“TKR. Excellent results. Minimal scarring always very accommodating. Would recommend Dr. Harbin.”
– Mary M.
“It all went as expected. I'm pleased with Dr. Harbin and all the staff. In addition to the physical therapy that was prescribed, I went on my own for a deep tissue massage about three weeks post-op. That was extremely helpful because some muscles in the surgical area were bound up and were causing more discomfort at that point than the surgery. If one were to seek a message such as I had, he or she would have to be sure to select an expert massage therapist.”
– Reynold W.
“Fantastic very well explained excellent job felt assured when l left.”
– Donald P.
“I found Dr. Harbin very easy to talk too. His explanation as to what was going on with my knee was very informative, put me at ease. I look forward to my next appt. My experience with the Bone & Joint Care was very positive. Thank you Mike Gaggi.”

– Kenneth G.
“I am pleased with my experience with Dr. Harbin. He's warm, personable but also very professional, as is his entire staff. Dr. Harbin explained everything thoroughly and was patient with my many questions. I'm already delighted with results of my hip replacement surgery (just 2 1/2 weeks ago--and he got me in a month early on a cancellation so one month's less pain!) and am recovering even more quickly than expected. All in all, I can't imagine having a better medical experience, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for a joint replacement.”
– Susan P.
“I saw Dr. Harbin to discuss my future hip replacement surgery. Dr. Harbin was very thorough and answered all questions that myself or my husband asked. He showed us my x-rays and explained what the condition of my hip is. Dr. Harbin was a profession and pleasant. Very pleased!”
