    Very kind yet efficient. No time wasted, while not feeling rushed or pushed through a process. Understanding that the injection is not pleasant, but also that it is important to do it with precision. Considerate in introducing staff and explaining everything that is happening.

      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.

      I was very impressed that Dr Harned searched out DrEshide (sp?). He was able get me into see Dr E same day (30 minute) later. He didn't have to do that and most doctors wouldn't have. It saved me a trip back to Lexington from Bardstown. Dr Harned gave me the option of opting out of a second consultation again saving me extra trip.

      My visit with *Dr. Harned was fine. He did a good job of explaining what was wrong and how to treat it. However, he prescribed a new pain medication (in addition the other pain medications) and never explained how to take it with (or instead of) my other medicine. I even asked through MyChart and didn't really get a clear answer.
