    Please note, the fellow did a great job. Dr. Harned never spoke to me before or after procedure. During procedure, it was strictly business and he only spoke once I was on the table, telling me when I would feel something, etc. I did not feel comfortable enough to speak up about my fears or concerns, i.e, the pressure I was feeling in my neck vessels and how scary it was, whether that was normal, the pain and tendernes I've been feeling since procedure but not feeling comfortable enough to call my doctor to discuss.

      Dr. Harned (attending) was very, very astute in directing Dr. Pham to my delicate procedure. I made sure Dr. Pham completed the procedure correctly. I might add that 24 hours after my procedure, I am very, very happy with the results.

      I was seen yesterday by Dr. Josh Rock as well as Dr. Harned. As always I was floored in a great way! I've never had health care professionals that treated me, listened to me, and cared for me like family. This ship is a well oiled machine, and it is solid top to bottom; however, the direct interaction I had with Dr. Rock and Dr. Harned is unmatched. They took their time to hear my wordy self out, took their time in explaining everything they were thinking, they Involved me completely In the decisions going forward, and they did It all with amazing personalities! I couldn't be happier with my care and will recommend this office to everyone In need.
