    Dr. Harty is kind and patient with me. Having Colitis is challenging for me, Dr Harty does a wonderful job of guiding me through my treatment.

    I have never been satisfied with his care. He has told me it was hard to believe when I told him symptoms before and he never remembers anything you say. He will forgot in 30 seconds. I was told I can't see another provider in that office which is interesting because other OU offices will allow it but in his contract it isn't allowed. I only see him still cause I did not want to go outside of OU so I just come and say everything is good and get my meds

    Dr. Harty allows me to answer any questions as well as listening to my concerns without the feeling of Wanting a one-word answer and no comment. He listens.

    The provider met with me I gave him an update as to my current status.
  • Dec 2, 2020
    They didn't provide enough information about how the virtual visit would work. He was late in sending the email link. He listened fairly well and seemed personable.

    It's always nearve wracking to go see your Dr, but Dr Harty is so great at explaing everything and encouraging me that I always feel better after seeing him. He is a wonderful physician.

    My provider was the utmost in being engaged and intentionally listening to my health concerns and the distress I had been experiencing. This doctor was exemplary for setting the standard for all doctors in his capacity for patient approach, interaction, as well as a multitude of practices covering my purpose for the appointment. His follow up was just as notable to know I could entrust my care to him on behalf of OU Physicians.

    Dr Harty is very concerned about my health issues and is trying to help me get well; however, the various medications just do not seem to be helping as quickly as I would like them to be, so we just keeping trying different meds hopefully to be able to find the right one. I realize this may take some time so we keep trying to find something tht works.
