I took my son to see Dr. Hardin after a heart murmur was detected at a sports physical. My son has never any medical conditions/concerns. Dr. Hardin thoroughly examined my son and had an EkG performed. He explained all the reasons for a possible heart murmur detection and completely eased our concerns and was able to clear my son for his sport the same visit. His beside manner was lovely and his professionalism impeccable. I highly recommend Dr. Hardin.

My son saw Dr. Hardian when he was working at Loyola University Hospital in IL. I was so sad to hear Dr. Hardin had left Loyola since he is an excellent heart doctor. He is very compassionate and thorough. His bedside manner is excellent and makes children feel very comfortable and he is very reassuring. I think it is going to be very hard to find another cardiologist as good as Dr Hardin. I would highly recommend Dr. Hardin. He is the only doctor I would trust doing a heart operation on my son
