About Rachel Harris:

Being an ob/gyn was a natural fit for Dr. Harris. Her first medical school rotation was surgery, followed by ob/gyn. “I didn’t think I’d like surgery, but I found that I really enjoyed it,” she says. “And ob/gyn was even better because I loved working in a clinic and getting to know patients personally. It’s the perfect blend of primary care and surgery.”

Get to Know Dr. Harris

What Dr. Rachel Harris loved about volleyball, the sport she played in college, is what she loves about Southdale ObGyn today. “I loved how coordinated the sport is … the energy of the game … but most of all, I loved the teamwork,” she says. “I wanted to work at a family- and team-oriented group, and here the focus is on working together to take care of the patients. At Southdale Ob/Gyn, every single clinic employee is vital to ensuring that the patient has a good experience.”

Dr. Harris’s decision to become a physician came from her love of science, and also from her aunt, Dr. Garnet Harris, a family practice physician whom she shadowed for a few weeks during college. “She’s very passionate about her career, but what influenced me the most was how she respects her patients — and how much they trust her.”

Dr. Harris describes herself as empathetic and energetic, driven and down-to-earth. “I’m good at listening to what’s going on with my patients, and I respect that they have an integral role in their health care,” she says.

In addition to her aunt, she says she’s had many female role models, from varied walks of life, but all of whom share one trait: “They’ve found a way to show up with a positive attitude and to be of service to people,” she says. “And that approach to life is really important to me — to not focus on yourself all of the time.”

In her spare time, Dr. Harris likes to read, run, and try new things—from dance lessons (West Coast Swing) to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. She also enjoys spending time with her husband Steve, son Milo and is very excited for baby #2, coming in January 2017. “It’s part of having balance in life and being a whole person, so when I show up at work I can be there 100 percent,” she says.

“I feel so fortunate to have women come to me for their care. It really is an honor in my life. I’m so grateful that this is my job!”

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Harris is an exceptional provider. She carefully listens to me, clearly explains my options and includes me in developing an effective plan of care. She seems very knowledgeable and highly skilled in the treatments I need.

Dr. Harris is a good listener and takes time with her patients. She is quick with uncomfortable procedures. She meets my expectations for thoroughness.

Gynecological Problem Visit

Dr. Harris explained the procedure fully to me. The ultrasound technician was extremely professional and exuded confidence (I was apprehensive to have the procedure so this helped put me at ease).

Annual Well Woman Exam

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Harris. I felt heard during my visit and it seemed like Dr. Harris cared about me and had my best interests at heart. When I had questions, Dr. Harris listened and answered respectfully, and although this type of exam gives me anxiety, Dr. Harris put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Harris listened to my concerns and offered ideas of how to move forward but didn't make me feel pressured to do something I didn't want to do.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Dr. Harris is always very welcoming. She is friendly, makes time for conversation about my job, and remembers details such as my interest in getting masters degree. I have never felt like she was rushing to finish my appointment to move on to the next appointment. I'm comfortable asking any and all questions. Dr. Harris sits down, listens to my questions and concerns, and answers them or refers me to a specialist such as a physical therapist or x-ray technician.
