Patient Comments (11)
in Redding, CA |
Dr. Harden is smart and gets the job done but he's always in a rush and acts like I'm a burden to him. I don't think he enjoys his job. Not a comfortable atmosphere. Plus each appointment takes well over an hour and a half. His assistant is the worst as she has a terrible attitude and never returns calls. Not sure how she's still employed. Other staff is great though. Looking for a new doctor who hears my health concerns.

He is heartless. Asked to discuss my mother's diagnose with him and I was told me he wouldn't even talk to me because I live out of state. I am so shocked at his heartless lack of response.
in Redding, CA |
Not sure about these comments left from others but i've never had any issues with this office or it's attitude. I've been a patient for quite a few years and he has always spent the time needed and cares about what he says and makes sure he answers questions and i'm good to go.

If you cancel or aren't there on time, they charge you $25 no matter what the reason. However, it's seems to be ok to have to sit in the lobby for an hour or more. Your time doesn't matter. And if you have to cancel appts you will end up being dropped without notification as a patient!

If I had to choose between dying a slow and painful death and trying to get a life saving medicine from Dr. Harden and his rude office staff, I would choose the slow and painful death every time. No compassion for their patients, no respect, and no professional attitudes to be found in this hive of incompetence.
Redding, CA |
Horrible doctor. He has no compassion. He also has no respect for other people's time. If you make an appointment, even for something simple such as prescription refills, be prepared to be there an hour minimum.
in Redding, CA |
He has been my doctor, and our families doctor for 13 years. He is super consistent, doesn't over prescribe, and is smart. He is kind and generous. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a doctor that is experienced and doesn't pump you full of pharmaceuticals robotically.
in Redding, CA |
Very poor bedside manner. Can be down right rude at times. Also seems stuck in a rut as to listening to health concerns, not at all open minded. As for the office they are hard to get thru to, and seem very frazzled, and in a hurry. Dropping the ball more often than not when it comes to rx refills and accuracy in billing and charting, which causes insurance problems. Not recommended. They've improved on wait times, now only runs abt 30 min past appt time. That's just to be called back
in Burney, CA |
He is always helpful. Knows a lot about really helping with health issues, He is good also for referrals. We are confidence whenever we go to see him of getting good care - over the seven years of consulting with him.
in Redding, CA |
Just tried to make a new patient appointment and I carry dual insurance. The woman answering the phone told me I had to fill out an initial new patient application to see if the doctor would want to see me. Are you kidding? A tryout to see if you make it into see the doctor. I only called this office because I have a family member that sees Dr. Harden. Maybe the doctor needs to give his front office people a phone script to read as to not completely offend them. I guess Dr.'s don't need patients
in Redding, CA |
Hard to talk to. Hard to get information from. Very cut and dry. In a hurry to get to the next patient. Assistant the same way. Not friendly.
