Robert A. Harris, MD

“I had health issues as a child that sparked my curiosity about treating illness. As I grew up I was very interested in sciences, physics and engineering. I like oncology because I get to intervene in a patient’s life at a time that it really, really matters to them. My favorite part is the one-on-one time I get to spend with people.”

Dr. Harris likes to spend time with his family, traveling and scuba driving.
