September 14, 2015 – This morning we welcomed Dr. Lily Harris as she arrived for her first day working as a pediatrician at Raleigh Children & Adolescents Medicine.
We make the distinction “first day working” here because this is not her first visit to RCAM.
A detail that has been stated before and will likely come up again: from early childhood though her teen years, Dr. Lily Harris visited RCAM as a patient!
You will find her bio here.
In short, after medical school and her pediatric residency at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, she and her husband had a baby and she spent a year working as a pediatrician in Goldsboro before beginning this morning at RCAM.
We are really excited for her to join our practice.
Two Doctors with the Same Last Name
Some of you seasoned RCAM families have likely noticed that we now have two pediatricians who go by “Dr. Harris” – there is the new Dr. Lily Harris as well as not so new Dr. Todd Harris (no relation).
When asked about having two pediatricians with the same last name, RCAM Office Manager Debbie Maness says, “Our plan now is to be patient and work through any confusion that may occur.”
Rumor has it that they hare investigated the use of a nickname.
NOTE: best nicknames so far: for Dr. Lily Harris – “Dr. Lily”, “Lil’ Doc”, or “The New One”; and for Dr. Todd Harris – “Dr. T”, “Dr. Doug Ross“, “The Tall Guy with The Receding Blonde Hair”, or “The One that doesn’t wear Sponge Bob Ties” (Dr. Todd Harris says, “Feel free to NOT share ideas for nicknames.”)
