overall experience was great
Jun 27, 2020
Dr. Harter is the first physician being had that has actually paid any attention to wanting to eliminate the headaches I have been having for years. The doctors I've had until now have had very little to offer and for the most part just look at me as if you say "there's not much I can do about it." Dr. Harter gave me not only a medical treatment plan for prevention, but she also gave me a list of foods that I can avoid that are potential triggers. truly appreciate her and am very grateful my husband found her. Can't say enough!

Whether in office or on virtual visit, Dr. Harter has been a consistent, incredible, caring doctor for the 15 years I have been her patient. I have a team of 6 different doctors to deal with my illness. Dr. Harter goes above and beyond all of them. Immaculate with her records and works so hard at getting records from other doctors when they fail to get them to her. in 28 years of my illness, Dr. Harter has given me the best quality of life possible. Her empathy is something not many people possess. I owe my life to her & would (and do) recommend her to anyone. I trust her with every ounce of my being.
Jun 18, 2020
my experience with the medical provider, staff and the front office staff is always excellent!

Dr Harter is easy to talk to and actually listens. Excellent physician.
Apr 11, 2020
I called the office to ask about what I should do since I was feeling sick and I left a message for the doctor. I assumed an ma would return the message with whatever the doctor said, instead they called me back to let me know the doctor would do a telemedicine appointment in 20 minutes. Dr. Harter is amazing and very compassionate. I'm so happy I found such a good doctor. I will continue to see her as long as she's in practice.

A pretty good experience.
Jan 21, 2020
This was a great experience and hopefully this level of trust will continue. So much better than recent doctor care.
Jan 21, 2020
Hard to be definitive as I had a lot of paperwork filled out. I do feel there was duplication in this process that wasted my time. I could have just registered on line.
Jan 21, 2020
I don't think she paid a lot of attention. She wrote down the wrong info - such as weight. I went to the bathroom and it took her a very long time to return to the room to do the blood pressure. I do not recall her checking my resting heart rate but the number seemed wrong.
Jan 21, 2020
Beth is just wonderful! She is a real gem! She is professional, patient, kind, and willing to go the extra mile and support my needs. She is also very positive!
Jan 21, 2020
Everyone that is affiliated wit Dr. Harter... which is Kim, Beth, and Krystal are amazing. I am so fortunate to be able to count on them when I need something. There follow through and professionalism is A+ . I have recommended Dr. Harter and the staff that works with her to my friends and they are now patient's of Dr. Harter because of her and her staff that works close with her! She has a great team and I continue my care with them because of it!

Beth has always been spectacular.

Dec 25, 2019
Very poor. Horrible parking. So far to walk I had a severe asthma attack last time and was told I couldn't be taken to my "far away" car in a wheel chair. I guess it was safer for me to fall by myself in the parking lot and get a second concussion. I don't see much concern for patient comfort or safety at Abrazo. It took me 10 phone calls to get a wellness appt. at the first of the year. I may end up changing doctors because of the above reasons and I hate that.
Dec 9, 2019
I went for a physical no real problem
Nov 21, 2019
The assistant and the Dr. are both very informative and experienced. I felt that they are truly interested in my well being!
Nov 20, 2019
I've been with *Dr. Harter for many years & greatly appreciate her thorough care & follow up. The office staff was very thoughtful & efficient - particularly the lovely young black lady - awesome!!
Nov 20, 2019
Doctor could have recommended that I go have a cat-scan done due to the pain in my chest.
Nov 20, 2019
I was impressed with the professional service I received.
Nov 18, 2019
That day there was no Lab Service- very inconvenient
Nov 18, 2019
everyone clueless about Lab not available
Nov 17, 2019
Dr. did not even try to clear/clean out my ears before referring me to an ENT.
Nov 14, 2019
Could use some higher chairs in the waiting room for those who have problems getting out of low chairs.
Nov 11, 2019
I was a very good experience.
Nov 11, 2019
excellent
Nov 11, 2019
Very good
Nov 6, 2019
Pam was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Could not have been nicer.
Nov 2, 2019
Your web portal, compared to several others I use, is a disaster. You need to scrap it and start over.
Nov 2, 2019
Much of registration could be done on-line before the appointment.
Nov 1, 2019
when calling the office the wait time can be long 4 to 12 minutes.

Oct 28, 2019
I find the staff to be a bit off-putting. Quite honestly I find them a bit gruff and rude. I guess it will just take time to adjust. The waiting area is very bright & loud.
Oct 28, 2019
I have great confidence in Dr. Harter, I feel like she is being stretched thin tho. I feel like she is helping me and I appreciate her efforts.
Oct 28, 2019
No information is given, I arrived signed paid, sat and waited and waited and waited
Oct 28, 2019
Beth is very helpful and informative. She listens and offers solutions.
Oct 28, 2019
I have concerns about my information being handled safely.
Oct 25, 2019
Dr. Harter has always made me feel I could discuss any concern. Her care and knowledge has kept me coming back even when she moved further away from where I live. I have recommended her to quite a few people and will continue to do so.
Oct 25, 2019
Only real problem was the ice cold air blowing straight down on my head during my wait. Very uncomfortable. Would have moved but didn't know where a better spot might be. Was ready to wait outside in the hall when Beth called me back.
Oct 25, 2019
Beth was very polite and attentive. She was very efficient but still caring and listened to what I was asking.
Oct 23, 2019
The front office ladies were professional, courteous, smiling, know what they're doing.
Oct 23, 2019
*Harter is absolutely the WORST doctor ever. She _____ strange comments in my records about my last visit. I'd be happy to provide you with the notes she wrote. I had to correct her. I, personally think there's something wrong w/her. #7. ZERO. #8. Never.
Oct 23, 2019
Nurse assts. were asking me about my rheumatologist, if I liked her etc. Then said she was looking for one and found the same dr. The entire conversation was unusual.
Oct 23, 2019
#2. Will never recommend to anyone.
Oct 23, 2019
This doctor had no reason to force or rather _____ the info a colonoscopy? When I said I wasn't interested she wrote some disparaging remarks in my medical record. And again I had to correct my record w/her.
Oct 23, 2019
alot was covered as this was yearly medicare exam
Oct 22, 2019
Beth is so helpful and thorough
Oct 22, 2019
the office felt very sterile . Need some decore to make patients welcomed and comfortable
Oct 21, 2019
Don't feel her diagnosis was correct at all. Diagnosed with migraines but no symptoms similar to anyone I know. Just said to change my diet. Not friendly.
Oct 21, 2019
Did not like or trust the doctor.
Oct 21, 2019
Wasted time searching for new patient forms online and was told on arrival that they are not online. Would be nice if that were clear. There is something online that says Forms... so it's misleading. It was easy to do on arrival, but why can't that be clear in new patient online instructions.
Oct 21, 2019
courteous, professional, made time for my questions, good listening, very helpful
Oct 21, 2019
Beth was great.
Oct 21, 2019
Impressive how quickly information and lab results were posted to the patient portal. Also that the office proactively contacted Simon Med to get my Mammogram results from earlier this year before I was an AMG patient.
Oct 19, 2019
Getting info on computer after the appointment was a hassle.
Oct 19, 2019
Dr. Harter is an outstanding doctor. i have been her patient several years.
Oct 19, 2019
Heather at front desk was extremely efficient.Dr Harter's assistant was also extremely efficient.y
Oct 19, 2019
using a tablet to answer questoon is difficult.
Oct 18, 2019
I appreciate the help and efforts of staff to get my appointment scheduled as soon as possible.
Oct 18, 2019
I received courteous and efficient care from everyone. All of my questions were answered by Dr.Harter and my visit was a very positive experience.
Oct 18, 2019
Beth was a tremendous help to me!
Oct 16, 2019
Front desk staff is always helpful. Beth is THE BEST!!!!! Dr. Harter always takes whatever time is needed to listen and tries to make adjustments to help address my headaches. I NEVER feel like we are rushed or like she needs to get to the next patient, I feel like she cares and tries very hard!
Oct 16, 2019
As already stated on previous screen, Dr. Harter is outstanding. She cares and spends whatever time is necessary to listen and to try to tackle the latest issues and problems that are taking place. She is never happy with the status quo, she is always trying to adjust or tweak what I am taking for meds to help me make progress. After months of struggles and no progress, I am finally moving in the right direction due to her care!
Oct 16, 2019
Beth is the best!
Oct 16, 2019
First time in my life that I felt like a doctor listened to me and I have been to a lot of doctors.
Oct 16, 2019
great. the front desk was quite courteous and the visit was excellent. dr Harter is such a great doctor and Beth her medical helper (not sure if her title). just love them both!!
Oct 16, 2019
I most definitely will recommend my dr Harter. she show concern and listens and we discuss my care. excellent Doctor!!
Oct 16, 2019

everything was good!
Oct 15, 2019
Dr. Harter is amazing. She is professional and warm and I have been a patient of her for the past 2 years +.
Oct 13, 2019
Jessica I believe her name Is, sits on far right, is very condescending to patients. zero empathy or cust service skills. I watched an older woman come to the front desk who had her appointment date confused. The woman was upset and said, "but someone called me yesterday and confirmed my appt for this morning!" Jessica was very rude to the lady and no apologies offered. She just kept restating, "your appt is Monday, ma'am." The lady, close to tears said, "just forget it. I'm done with this whole change yo 'Abrazo' whatever. I'll. find a new DR. Cancel my appt for Monday." Jessica responded with, "ok."The lady walked out the door and stood by the elevators on her phone crying. I wanted to help her in some way but knew I couldn't. Maybe the patient was 100% wrong, but that was beside the point. It was HOW it was handled. The desk clerk is In The wrong position there. She is the face of the office when people walk up. Leaves you with a very bad feeling about the place. To Me personally, when I first arrived she was so condescending, it took me aback. It was as if she had to "win" or prove me wrong. Crazy. I mentioned all of this to Dr Harter during my visit. I've been a patient of hers a long time.
Sep 24, 2019
I'm not use to scheduling/contacting my provider through a third party, I found it very inconvenient. I waited between 15-20 each time I attempted to contact my provider, even when I was asked to return a call.
Sep 24, 2019
I'm familiar with staff and I felt they were truly compassionate about what I experiencing
Sep 22, 2019
In office paperwork is poor same questions asked SEVERAL times
Sep 19, 2019
Dr. Harter was my doctor at her own practice
Sep 19, 2019
I had to get labs done and the Older Gentleman that was working the lab forgot about me. I almost left to go to another lab. He did apologize. I left at 5:30 p.m. I think I'd rather to go the lab I usually go to in the future. Your labs are drawn right in the front where the Gentleman sits. There is no privacy! They have to verify your HIPAA information where everybody can hear. Ehy can't they draw your blood in a room?
Sep 19, 2019
I'm glad Dr. Harter brought her staff because I know them. I felt very comfortable.
Sep 19, 2019
I can only recommend Dr. Harter I can't speak for the other physicians
Sep 19, 2019
Where they draw your blood needs to change. No privacy since your blood draw is right in the front desk
Sep 18, 2019
*Dr. Harter has been my dr. for years and knows what my need are.
Sep 17, 2019
Dr Harter is amazing!!
Sep 14, 2019
longer hours would help those who work; online scheduling/paperwork would be great; the PA told me the phone system is very inconvenient and the portal is the best way to contact her.
Sep 14, 2019
all paperwork should be electronic
Sep 14, 2019
Beth is great!
Sep 14, 2019
I have been a patient of Doctor Christine Harter for 12 yrs. She has always talked with me not at me, listened to my concerns and allows me to be a part of the decisions regarding my health.
Sep 8, 2019
really liked dr Harter
Sep 6, 2019
we were 30 minutes early to till out paperwork. we finished 5 min before our scheduled appointment and waited 20+ more minutes. we have never waited for dr Harter before. the rest was quick. office staff was kind.
Aug 18, 2019
She was great! Very patient with me and understanding and she was very thorough.
