Dr. Harrod saw me for an ankle injury. He was my second opinion after my being dissatisfied with the treatment I received at another clinic. I appreciate that he didn’t jump right to surgery but tried more conservative treatments... Dr. Harrod saw me for an ankle injury. He was my second opinion after my being dissatisfied with the treatment I received at another clinic. I appreciate that he didn’t jump right to surgery but tried more conservative treatments first. He clearly explained his reasoning and what to expect. Ultimately, I did have the surgery, and I’m glad I did, it fixed me right up. Dr. Harrod is friendly, easy to talk to, and genuinely listens.
