The most amazing doctor that I have ever seen- he is so, so bright, so incredibly kind and caring and takes time with his patients. We appreciate Dr. Carden so much.
in Valley, AL |
Absolutely horrible treatment. My husband needed a(n) full exam with hopes to find hid forever Doctor & he has to be reviewed (do not know what they are reviewing he's NEVER been there) before they will even consider letting him make an appointment. I have NEVER in my life heard that a patient has to be reviewed just to get a check-up. Needless to say our business clearly wasn't wanted there so be careful. They have a way of making you feel unwanted in less than 10 sec. flat!!!!!
in Phenix City, AL |
KIND, SMART, FRIENDLY, GREAT DOCTOR. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.

We have been trying to fill a prescription with his office for Ed Tallent since Dec 23 to no avail. Completely worthless staff...they tell us EVERY DAY that they will fill the prescription...here it is 30 December and NO response....do not depend on them....sick of dealing with them....try retraining or firing the staff....feel free to call me....
