Fredericksburg, VA |
I had a particularly tough situation that Dr Harding knew what to do off the top of his head. His demeanor is very clinical but his support staff ( I saw four other people) are very attentive and empathetic.

Caring and compassionate

Great surgeon, fast and quick, but explains the situation and provides care. you can trust him and his staff.
in Spotsylvania, VA |
Wonderful, kind and friendly Doctor. Took his valuable time to talk to me about another issue. At the time, it was just what I needed to hear. Excellent manner. Paula Green, RN
in Spotsylvania, VA |
My experience was beyond positive. I knew I had a knee problem and Dr. Harding agreed, BUT his first response was NOT to schedule surgery, but to explore every non-invasive treatment possible. In his own words, surgery isn't the first option, it is the last.
