Dr. Harned, as well as the fellow training under him, spent a lot of time with me and they listened carefully. I have not had this sort of experience with UK Healthcare in quite some time. These physicians could teach others about the importance of listening to patients and asking relevant questions.
*Dr. Harned and his staff has always cared and will really listen!
exam went as planned
This particular appointment was for a procedure. The nurses were friendly, understanding and very helpful before, during and after the procedure. I have never had a problem getting in contact with the care team or obtaining quick answers to my questions.
I'm very comfortable with the Dr and staff and feel they care about their patients and my problems!Are you happy with the care you received from this provider?
