Review of Dr. Harden

I had an Outstanding experience with Dr. Harden. She was able to work me in promptly,when I needed surgery. She is a professional , knowledgeable, and gifted surgeon. She used advanced surgical techniques,yet was still down to earth in her explanations and instructions to me. My follow up appointments were good and informative.I am very grateful to have received the quality care that I was searching for. Many Thanks to you, Dr. Hardin.

Dr. Harden is truly my guardian angel. I visited Dr. Harden for a simple breast cyst and while being examined, she found a small separate tumor that four other medical professionals had missed. After several tests, I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer. Dr. Harden worked swiftly and performed surgery just three days after my diagnosis. My lumpectomy could not have gone better and I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Harden is a gem and I highly recommend her; you are in wonderful hands!

I was diagnosed with colon cancer andDr. Harden was recommended by some of my health care friends to perform my colon resection. I am so thankful I chose her. She is very sweet and smart. I felt comfortable with her from the start. Now 2 years later I can barely see my scar that is about 6 inched down the middle of my stomach. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor!!!!

Today marks 6 months of my breast biopsy performed by Dr. Harden and I am still bruised/discolored. A surgical breast biopsy to remove a cyst of 1 cm (ONE CENTIMETER!!!) in diameter described to me as a "walk in the park" turned out to be the worst nightmare of my life! She left me with a big, ugly, puffy scar right on top of my breast that no bikini top will ever be able to cover, not to talk about that half of my breast tissue is gone. It looks terrible and I feel terrible. Bad experience!

Visited Dr. Harden for a consult regarding gallstone surgery. Dr. Harden broke down the CT scan item by item and relieved many of my concerns. She was knowledgeable and I left feeling confident and relieved as she addressed my concerns and thankful to know no surgery was needed.

Review of Dr. Harden

- in Niceville, FL |

I contacted Dr. Harden for hernia surgery after having had a bad experience with another surgeon. She took the time to explain the procedure and her experience and patiently answered my questions and concerns. The operation was slightly complicated but a complete success. I walked out of the hospital that morning. The follow-up visits and recovery were perfect. I highly recommend Dr. Harden with complete confidence.

Fantastic, in a word. She must carry a thesaurus in her head to explain stuff to me in a way I understood. Once I caught on, I understood. But she is also caring in surgery in how she made me look after it was all said and done. I don't look like a chop-shop. I have a little cleavage and a little muscle so when I am wearing clothing, my breast removal is not that noticeable. The thing I loved most is the wall of arrogance she does NOT have around her; and same with her staff.
