Dr. Harden is a caring Physician, I felt comfortable discussing my concerns, my brother had passed away recently and suddenly unexpected from Colon Cancer in the small intestine, he got me a referral to get the screening. He is witty, funny , personable, and explains things so you understand, I ask a lot of questions.

My husband and I needed to find a new doctor and Dr Harden was the only office accepting new patients. Also, not all doctors accept Medicare assignment, but they do. We have been going there for a year and so far have no complaints.

We needed a family doctor in Redding and Dr. Harden was the only doctor we could find accepting new patients. He and his staff have been wonderful! He's great with our newborn, and has been very respectful and thorough with each of us during our new admit appointments. I'm surprised by his low reviews and so far have been very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism.

Went to my first appt. with Dr. Harden. Staff very cold and unwelcoming. No one smiles. My first impression of Dr. Harden was that he was not very happy to be there. Made comment about doctors being forced out of private practice because of today's medical policies. He didn't seem interested in what was going on with me. No examination whatsoever. So hard to find a doctor in Redding. No one is accepting new patients. So very sad that doctors don't care anymore.

We were a little hesitant to make an appointment after reading reviews. However, we are glad we went ahead anyway. We found Dr Harden and his staff to be very competent, kind and efficient. We are happy to have him as our family Doctor!

My mother was a patient of Dr. Harding. When she reached her final days we called Dr. Harden's office multiple times over two days to get a hospice referral with NO response. Patient advocacy attempted to contact him as well as the Hospice agency. Again, No response. My mother has since passed away. Still no response from her doctor. If you care for yourself or your loved on you need to avoid this poor excuse for a professional.

I would not recommend this man to a dog! He is rude, his staff is rude, and they are inept.

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.
