I did not have a positive experience with Dr. Harnden. She did not have answers for why she recommended one cancer medication over another. Particularly after having painful side effects. Perhaps it was a personality conflict or just me...Yes, I ask a lot of questions, and I expect my provider to be prepared to answer them, or at least follow up with an answer later. This is my health and I should have confidence in my provider. She was not a good fit for me. If you like “doctor driven” care, you’ll probably like her. But if you want to make decisions about your healthcare WITH your doctor as I team, you may be disappointed.

Dr. Garden has been my medical oncologist as I get myself through breast cancer and a lumpectomy. She has been so helpful listening to me and explaining things to me with very clear pictures and notes from our discussion. She has helped me understand my diagnosis, treatment and road ahead. I look forward to my next visit with her next week. I highly recommend Dr. Harnden.
