“I love the disease process in GI. Many GI illnesses are amenable to therapy. It is a technologically heavy specialty that is rapidly changing. The disease spectrum allows us to care for a wide range of ages and different patients from different backgrounds. We care for healthy screening patients and very ill liver patients. I enjoy the variety.

I try hard to listen to patients and find out their concerns and needs. I try to educate patients so that they understand all of their treatment options. I hope to give my patients knowledge and peace of mind and provide care with a sense of humor.”

In his personal time, Dr. Harmston enjoys skiing, golf and family time.
