Dr Harris was brilliant with our baby boy and we were very grateful for the fantastic level of after care. The day after the procedure he came to our home to check on the baby and throughout the process post op he called several times to check in on our little boy's wellbeing. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr Harris as an expert in his field and for the amazing care he provided our family.

Dr Harris helped us with the bris for our son. We live outside London and he kindly offered to come to us twice, first for the procedure and the following day to give us more support. As others have shared, we appreciate the focus Dr Harris places on aftercare, calling regularly to listen to our observations and recommending best practices for smooth recovery. It is important to highlight that you not only get the services of a Mohel, but also the expertise of an experienced Doctor. As a total package, we feel blessed to have Dr Harris' involvement from the beginning and will be happy to recommend his services. Thank you Dr Harris. Regards, Dennis & Maddie
