My family and I LOVE Richard Harding, M.D., who is absolutely wonderful! He's always been able to get us well in short order. Dr. Harding takes time to ascertain the medical Issue, and then explain it and the recourse needed. He's always been there for us these past twenty plus years. I marvel at his excellence, kindness and consistency, which has never waivered!
