Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital (SJMH), in Weston, welcomes obstetrician/gynecologist Robert Harris, M.D., FACOG, to the medical staff. Dr. Harris is seeing patients at Mountaineer Healthcare for Women’s office at 66 Hospital Plaza, Physician Building Number Two on the SJMH campus.
Dr. Harris noted he is pleased to be offering services at SJMH.
“The people who I have met here are just the nicest people,” said Dr. Harris. “West Virginia is truly a beautiful place and the people are delightful. The Hospital’s affiliation with Mon Health is a very positive step for good healthcare for local residents. A new facility along the Interstate will add to the already great healthcare people receive here, with a state-of-art hospital. That is great news for all of us.”
He attained his undergraduate degree at Quinnipiac College in Connecticut before receiving his medical degree at St. Georges University in the West Indies. He completed his residency at Staten Island University Hospital, New York. He is board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a Fellow with the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Dr. Harris had thoughtful reasoning for going into women’s health.
He explained, “I chose women’s health because I enjoy the opportunity for providing both short and long-term care. For example an emergency room department cannot cultivate a long-term relation with the patient. This field also provide me with the ability to do both surgical and medical care. But perhaps one of the most important aspects of my practice is the opportunity to be a part of childbirth. It is an unique and exceptional experience to be a part of bringing a baby into the world. It is so moving unlike any other medical field.
At Mountaineer Healthcare he will offer annual well woman exams, prenatal care, labor and delivery, menstrual disorders, family planning, ultrasounds, gynecologic surgery and menopause management.
Dr. Harris’ parents Harold and Nancy Harris live on Long Island, New York. He has three sons – Robert, II, 12; Grant, 10; and Logan, 7. Currently, he is residing in Shadybrook.
