I would first like to say that my wife is Dr. Harper’s patient. However the care that she gave my wife and also the considerations and time she spent answering all my questions prompted me to write this review. I have two beautiful daughters that Dr. Harper helped bring into this world. Neither of my daughters have any health issues related to the birth process, but that could have been a lot different. Both times there were complications. Complications that not only put my wife at risk, but my children as well. Dr. Harper was able to see that my wife needed hospital care with my first child. It was unexpected and early, but do to the problem Dr. Harper was able to see she knew she had to make this baby come early. That care my wife got was amazing. She was able to give birth and all was well. When our second child was born we didn’t know the cord was wrapped around our daughters arm and neck. When it was evident something was wrong again Dr. Harper sprang into action. I use that phrase because literally she did. She moved fast and with such precision. She had my daughter out and to the pediatrician with in seconds it seemed. I know that in both cases things could have had a bad result. I was able to see her skills as a physician in an extra stressed moment when seconds counted and it was indeed amazing. I know I owe the safety and health of my wife and my two daughters to Dr. Harper. Lastly I wanted to add that I always appreciated how she took the time to visit with me to see what questions I had and to see how I was doing. My wife was the important one and we all knew it. But Dr. Harper would always ask me things and include me in the doctor check ups. When we were at the hospital before and after delivery she would check and make sure I was taking care of myself ie eating and getting sleep. She is indeed a wonderful person and an excellent doctor.
Dr. Elise Harper is the best OB/Gyn. Dr.

I have ever seen. She is friendly and always takes the time to answer any questions I may have. I feel very comfortable discussing any issue with her.
SAW ME THROUGH MY FIRST PREGNANCY
VITALS Jan 10, 2010
Dr. Harper recently delivered our son. I had to be induced after a medical condition necessitated it. She used the Foley catheter to induce and was patient with my SLOW progress as it was my first baby and I was not at all dilated or effaced. I was in labor for 37 hours and everything went great considering the circumstances. I could not be happier with my doctor! — I selected her as my Ob/Gyn prior to getting married and now have also gone through a pregnancy as well. Office visits are always pleasant, and her nurse, Angela, is wonderful. I would highly recommend Dr. Harper!
