      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. .
