Dr. Todd S. Harris has been awarded numerous honors over the years. This year Dr. Harris was awarded America’s Best Hernia Surgeon due to his ongoing commitment to hernia patients. His dedication to his patients by ensuring outstanding care and a concierge type approach to hernia surgery is demonstrated by his ongoing recognition with these top awards.
The awards are some of the most important to any physician, including Dr. Harris, since many are voted and awarded by the patients themselves. Others are given to Dr. Harris for his overwhelmingly positive feedback from patients online.
Awards Recieved Dr. Todd S. Harris – 2015 – 2022 Castle Connolly Top Doctors Award
(From Castle Connolly) Most people would agree that gambling with their health care is a dangerous idea. When it comes to medical care, excellence and expertise are crucially important. Yet Americans receive top-quality care from their doctors and hospitals only about half of the time. From inadequate screening during routine checkups to subpar treatment of critical illnesses, inferior care can have costly and tragic results. Too often, patients simply don’t know how to find the best doctors, trained to deliver the best care.
Castle Connolly takes this challenge seriously. Since the company’s founding in 1991, our “Top Doctors” guides have been identifying the nation’s best doctors and hospitals in every part of the country and in every medical specialty. Our lists are based on peer nominations and professional assessments by our physician-led research team not on hype, advertising, or third parties that have something to gain by recommending a particular provider. Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors are rigorously selected from among hundreds of thousands of physicians. Our intensive research methodology is designed to identify doctors that will speed patients’ healing, minimize pain and discomfort, shorten recovery periods and enhance and lengthen lives – in other words, achieve the best possible health outcomes.

Physician of Excellence Awards 2014 – 2022
Dr. Harris was awarded the 2014 – 2022 Physician of Excellence Award. The Orange County Register publishes its annual health issue and lists Orange County’s Physicians of Excellence. The Physicians of Excellence (POE) program was started by the Orange County Medical Association in 2004 (published January 2005) to take the place of the Best Doctors program that was previously used by the magazine. The purpose was to localize the selection process and to have defined selection criteria that were easy to measure.
The OCMA Board, when venturing into the POE program, recognized the fact that all physicians meet a standard of excellence simply by the fact that they have completed the training and education necessary to become medical doctors. However, there are some who go above and beyond in serving their profession and patients, and as a result, the OCMA Board believed that by creating the POE program it would be able to recognize and honor those physicians.
