About Me

I’m Wes Harden, MD, FACOG, an obstetrician and gynecologist (OB/GYN) who joined Phelps Health in 2018. I also serve as the medical director of the Physician’s Excellence Committee and the division chief of Surgical Care. I commonly see women for pregnancy, contraceptive counseling, abnormal Pap smears and abnormal vaginal bleeding.

As an OB/GYN, I get to provide both hospital and office care combined with surgery. This specialty also allows for long-lasting patient relationships. I also enjoy guiding patients and families through pregnancy.

I am originally from northern Missouri. When I’m not at work, I enjoy traveling, horseback riding and kayaking with my family. Other hobbies include maintaining my farm and occasional snow and water sports.
