Of all the providers I have had over the years, he is by far the best. Never seems in a hurry, always remembers my hobbies, is clear, concise and relaxed.

I realize that it is not Dr. Harwood to get the referrals, but I had to make a phone to [...] to get the referral. My primary care doctor never put a referral in, even after me making three calls to them. I am seeing Dr. Harwood for my heart, and have to get a referral everytime I see him. Which is every three months.

Dr Harwood was exceptional in talking directly to me ( I am very hard of hearing).. He respected my concerns and gave an understandable explanation to my choices of care for my heart failure.
