After six decades in the Sunshine State, I needed to “face the music”. Thankfully, my wife encouraged me to visit Dr. Harris to treat my Basal cell carcinomas. I had tried the Mohs procedure, which was lengthy to say the least. In weeks, not months, I am happy to say, we have the cancers, small and large, at bay. I am scheduling future checkups, so we stay on top of any further developments.

With skin cancer being so prevalent in my family, I noticed a little dry skin on the bridge of my nose. I contacted Florida Skin Cancer Center and made an appointment on the day that the pathologist would be available in his mobile lab. Dr. Harris removed the tissue to be examined and within 15 minutes or so I was diagnosed with basal cell cancer. Dr Harris removed the cancer, put 6 sutures in my nose, and all of this took less than 40 minutes.
Two months later there is no scar on my nose. I will forever be grateful for their expediency, professionalism and thoughtfulness shown towards me. There is no better place to go than the Florida Skin Cancer Center!

I had a very large basal cell cancer below my left eye that left a dime sized hole after Mohs surgery. I was really concerned I would look deformed. Dr. Harris reassured me and was able to fix it so not only do my friends not notice it-neither do I. For anyone with a skin cancer I say there is no better doctor to take care of it than a plastic surgeon like Dr. Harris and the Florida Skin Cancer Center.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Harris’s for all my skin cancer needs for years. Due to my ongoing battle with Melanomas and other skin cancers, I visit the Florida Skin Cancer Center every 3 months for screenings, diagnosis and treatment as needed. Dr. Harris and his staff provide the utmost care and are extremely thorough and professional. Thank you for keeping me safe!

Had a temporal lift done by Dr. John B. Harris this past June of 2021. The surgery was done under local anesthesia and I did not experience any pain at all while he was doing the procedure. I was able to speak with the doctor and his nurse during the surgery. I am extremely pleased with the results of my temporal lift and would highly recommend Dr. Harris and his wonderful staff.
O. T.
Dr. Harris, It means more to me than words can say how thankful I am for all of your time and careful consideration on my procedure. Thank-you for preparing me and making me feel as though I couldn’t have chosen a better doctor or team of medical professionals!
N. C.
Thanks for helping make my surgical experience pleasant. Thanks to your techniques well done!

Dr. Harris,
With pen and paper there are no words to express how grateful I am to you.
I am doing great now.
J. K.
Dr. Harris,
Words cannot express how much I appreciate the excellent result of the surgery. I am so pleased with the outcome. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job.
Its obvious to me that you care about your patients with regard to their health and satisfaction. I‘m the lucky recipient of your caring attitude and wonderful talents as a surgeon.
C. W.
Dr. H., I am so thrilled with your surgical expertise as it pertains to my face and neck.! You have made me feel so fresh, and the changes to my neck are more than I imagined. I am truly grateful!
I am so happy I could scream! I have been a thrilled patient of yours and as long as you are available to keep me looking my best, I am surely going to revisit you often!
M. W.
Dr. John B. Harris is a caring, competent, skillful physician. My experience with him was one of trust which was fulfilled by his concern and follow-up care. His staff reflects the same. I recommend him highly.
T. N. M.
Dr H., I just wanted to tell you what a terrific surgeon we think you are. Your kindness and professionalism set you apart from any other doctor.

Looking in the mirror at age 63 I realized I needed a “lift’ of some kind. I did not want to be put under general anesthesia nor miss more than a few days of work. I felt like my options were limited. Dr. Harris explained a procedure he is doing in the office under just a numbing shot, and I would be back to work in a few days. Right, I thought! I am not a super-woman and not 40 years old! But if I could get the mini-facelift and not be drugged up for days and back to work in a week, I would do it. The entire process was “a piece of cake!” I am still amazed. I had the procedure on Thursday and on Monday I went back to work. I have no bruising, no swelling, and no pain, and I have had so many people tell me how incredible and natural I look. I told Dr. Harris that I would do this every couple of years if I needed to as I had such minimal down time, and the results are fabulous.

My dermatologist shaved off a dysplastic nevus. After reviewing the pathology report Dr. Harris advised me that the shave biopsy was not adequate treatment. He properly excised the dysplastic mole and left behind a very minimal scar. I will only see Dr. Harris at the FSCC for all future skin cancer checks and any needed biopsies and won’t have any more shave biopsies.
L. I.
The dermatologist recommended “Mohs” for a spot on my chest. I was thankful to find an effective alternative. Dr. Harris and his team have been easy to communicate with and I have been more than satisfied with the results and their professionalism.
B. H.
Dear Dr. Harris,
I wanted to thank you for how helpful, patient, and supportive you’ve been during my Melanoma melodrama! The initial diagnosis was a tough pill to swallow, but the journey has been easier to navigate knowing I have an awesome team in my corner. Thanks again.
M. W.
A plastic surgeon for a skin cancer on my face – a no-brainer! I want a plastic surgeon for all my skin cancers. People need to know a plastic surgeon is available to anyone.

I wish to extend my highest regards and appreciation to Dr. John B. Harris for his exceptional competence and genuine concern.
Dr. Harris restored my hope and trust in medicine and surgery. He demonstrates superior competence as a physician and surgeon, and perhaps equally important, Dr. Harris made me feel safe, secure, and confident in his skills and talents as a surgeon. Dr. Harris changed my life; he made me a whole person again.

Dear Dr. Harris,
You said before my surgery that you would take good care of me, and you certainly did. Thank you for the truly great care you and your staff extended to me throughout the surgery and afterward.
Please chalk up one more tremendously happy patient.

Finding Dr. John B. Harris, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for my skin cancer, was a blessing. He noticed a spot on the end of my nose. The initial biopsy indicated a fast growing Basal Cell cancer that needed immediate surgery. Dr. Harris performed the surgery with a mobile lab on standby to monitor the extent of the cancer. The surgery required removal of deep skin cancer, but he skillfully closed the incision and gave me a perfect nose again. Though the healing process was difficult, my care was amazing. Dr. Harris and his staff are gentle, kind, and exceptionally attentive. My friends at Vicar’s compliment his work, and I have recommended his practice to several friends and family members.

I have been a patient of Dr. Harris for melanoma and all my other skin cancer needs. Last year we found a thin melanoma that was easily removed. Because of the biopsy at the Florida Skin Cancer my melanoma was caught early. After surgery by a plastic surgeon no further treatment was needed and the scar was smaller than my previous melanoma. The staff at the Florida Skin Cancer Center provide the utmost care and are extremely thorough and professional. Thank-you for keeping me safe!
R. S.
I just had my first basal cell cancer removed at the Florida Skin Cancer Center-it was quick and easy.
After seeing the process my husband went through having a basal cell removed with Mohs I was expecting a much longer process.
Dr. Harris was very thorough, and with the pathologist and his team right there it went very quickly.
Dr. Harris and his staff at the FSCC are friendly, but also very professional.
C. H.
I have been a patient of Dr. Harris’s for more years than I wish to count. I first met Dr. Harris when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and he was the plastic surgeon for the breast reconstruction after my mastectomy.
He has been my plastic surgeon ever since and now takes care of my skin cancers at The Florida Skin Cancer Center. I especially appreciate the fact that Dr. Harris as a plastic surgeon cares how even the smallest scars like a biopsy scar looks. Some places shave the biopsy and leave an ugly scar. But Dr Harris makes a small incision for the biopsy and carefully puts a stich in each one of them leaving very little if any scar.
Dr. Harris takes no chances with skin cancers. I like having the pathologist available for the skin cancer surgery so that the report is available immediately that day. He and his staff are incredible-I love them all!
P. P.
Thanks for everything. Every so often someone will say, “I can’t believe you’re 60!”
So that makes me feel good. You did a great job considering the raw material you have to work with! I will continue to sing your praises to any of my friends considering plastic surgery.
A. A.
Dr H., You continue to work your magic-thank you!

If you are reading this and considering a facelift look no further. Dr. Harris is an artist and a genius. He performed a facelift and eyelid surgery on a friend of mine. She looked tired and haggard. Dr. Harris with surgery and fat injections transformed her appearance without changing her basic face. It is almost miraculous what he can do. Four weeks ago, Dr. Harris operated on me, and I look fabulous. There was very little bruising. After two weeks I went to a party with one hundred people, and no one could tell I had a facelift. People told me how great I looked, but I truly look like myself, only refreshed or rested. To me it is all the difference in the world. I felt like I was in competent hands every step of the way with my surgery and after care.
S. I.
Dr. Harris, I just wanted to formally thank you for my beautiful new look. I love the way everything turned out and my experience from the consultation to the follow-ups has been wonderful. I have recommended you to a number of women.
Thank you again!
J. R.
Dear Dr. Harris,
No words can express how happy I am with the outcome of the surgery you performed on me. You truly are an artist and a master in your field.
I have seen a lot of clients with bad results of plastic surgery. Your work surpasses all I have seen on the good side. You are a wonderful surgeon.
W. F.
I have just returned from my 50 year high school reunion, and I received a lot of attention and positive comments.
L. S.
Dr. Harris,
I want you to know how pleased my husband and I are with the results of the plastic surgery that you did for him. Thank you.
E. D.
Dear Dr. Harris,
Thank you for the wonderful surgery that was done for me. Dr. Harris, you are the most wonderful surgeon that I have ever had the privilege to meet, and care for me as a patient.
B. M.
Thanks to Dr. Harris, I can see like a normal person again. I didn’t realize how bad my peripheral vision was!
