As an OBGYN, Dr. Harkness feels honored to walk with women through some of the most significant milestones in their lives. She enjoys being able to provide holistic care to her patients, foster close relationships with them, and empower them to make the right health decisions for themselves. She believes in using a team-based approach to medicine, where all of a woman’s doctors work together to ensure excellent care.
Dr. Harkness is particularly interested in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery. She also enjoys counseling women through low- and high-risk pregnancies and helping them with family planning.
Dr. Harkness loves adventure and has gone white-water rafting down the Nile River, experienced a safari, trekked through the jungle to find wild gorillas, and jumped out of a perfectly good airplane—twice. When she’s not traveling, Dr. Harkness and her husband enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, and listening to live music.
