in Surprise, AZ |
Dr. Harding is a very pleasant Man, very personable , easy to talk to and explains things so that you understand them. My experience was one of the most pleasant in my 72 years. Made me feel comfortable and treated me very respectful. Thank you so much!

Dr. Harding is the best physician I've used. He scheduled and spent a surprising amount of time to explain my planned surgery in detail, and answered every one of my many questions. On the day of surgery, he had every potential issue covered, and spent extra time during the operation when unexpected challenges arose. Post-open follow up was just as thorough as pre-op, and I feel I couldn't have been in better hands. Highly recommended.

Dr. Harding is the best Thyroid Surgeon! I needed a partial removal of my thyroid. He explained the procedure to me thoroughly before the operation. After the procedure, I stayed at the hospital overnight. I never experienced any pain, days later I was back to my old routine. I am 72 years old, It's now been 25 days since I had the procedure done and I feel great. I recommend Dr. Harding, he is the best!

Dr. Harding was very impressive. He was kind and reassuring when telling us that my spouse needed surgery. He was thorough in his explanation. He gave us options and did immediate diagnostic testing at our first appointment in his office. His staff was also very pleasant and competent. Excellent experience all around.

Dr. Harding is an excellent surgeon! He performed a total Thyroidectomy. I had a large goiter with many nodules. Dr. Harding removed it through an inch long incision that is unnoticeable with minimal scaring and it's only been 1 month. He explained the whole procedure and made me feel very secure in his abilities as an individual and surgeon. I would recommend him to all who are looking for a qualified surgeon with a caring personality. .
