Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hardy
  • You are unique, your health issues are unique, and you deserve a family practice that offers unique health solutions.
  • Improving your family's quality of life is more important than just checking off the boxes to meet the standard of care.
  • Finding and treating the root cause of illness is superior to solely treating symptoms.
  • Spending time to talk to you and understand your complaints yields a more accurate diagnosis the first time.
  • Integrating holistic healthcare (mind, body and spirit) allows your body to regenerate using its innate healing properties.
  • You will accomplish your health goals easier if your family practice provides you with compassion and understanding.
  • Patients deserve individualized, whole person, holistic medical care and treatment.
  • Educating patients improves health outcomes without medicines.
  • Your opinions about your health and healthcare treatment are valuable.

Dr. Hardy and his staff are very friendly. They treat you with respect "like family". I have seen Dr. Hardy for over 4 years now. He is very knowledgeable. He was very accurate when he diagnosed me. The office went the extra mile to take care of my medical needs, my case was with a specific referral. I recommend this office.
Dr. Hardy used to have an amazing staff who were trustworthy and the doctor used to be great. Now, he's a wolf in sheep's clothing. He has misdiagnosed me with several conditions and prescribed medication that I didn't need because, again, I was misdiagnosed. I followed up with a different doctor and they did the proper procedures to diagnose the problem and they were astonished at what Dr. Hardy prescribed. He puts false notes in my reports and the office manager lies and argues. STAY AWAY!!!
We are very sorry to hear about this through healthgrades. Please contact us ASAP. I would like to review your case and open an investigation. At Legacy Family Medicine we strive for excellence in patient care. Call 407-781-1000 and request to speak to the Nurse Manager.

After going through several doctors, I could not be happier that I met Dr Hardy yesterday. I can be a difficult patient, but I have not had a doctor who showed more compassion, understanding, and took the time to listen and explain things in detail. He never rushed me, clearly knew his stuff, and has a "bedside manner" that is second to none. If you happen to live in the East Orlando area and are looking for a new primary care physician, then this is your guy. His staff was equally as great!

Dr Hardy is personable, asks good ? & I never feel rushed. He is open to listening. The reason I don't give a 5 is prescriptions 50% of the time w/prescriptions there's an error. 1 mo ago I was given a nose spray & specifically emphasized send it to the mail order. It was sent the wrong place, came back to them & cancelled, I never got a call. I took a daily generic med, 3 x they called in the brand name. Finally I just switched b/c I ran out & was done w/trying. Triple check up on them.

Dr. Philip Hardy has everything I was looking for in a doctor...he takes the time to listen, he takes the time to explain in detail my options. Me and my daughter are very happy having him as our family doctor. I usually don't do reviews but Dr. Hardy and his office does deserve this and more....God bless you!!

Dr. Hardy is the best md in the world. I am truly blessed to have him for my primary care doctor. He is truly a God sent md for anyone who needs a doctor. He is very, very knowledgeable with any medical problems that I have had. I pray for him & his staff & his family daily. What a blessing he has been for me & my husband. Words cannot express what an excellent doctor that he is. He has never failed to help me with anything that I need. May God continue to bless Dr. Hardy & staff & family.

Good doctor but office waits are long. Staff always states they had an emergency prior. That does happen but 2 out of 3 visits.
It is an emergency when we are giving malignant results to patients, it is an emergency when a patient breaks down crying and displays signs of anxiety, it is an emergency when a patient can't breath... We are a medical clinic where we see everything from a simple case to the cases mentioned above. We try our best to see patients in a timely manner but there are times where we have emergencies. This is why we let other patients know. Your understanding and compassion will be appreciated. LR, RN

Dr. Hardy does not follow parameters he has set. Too many problems with him. Finally decided after being a long time patient the issues are too many to be worth it any longer. Some of his staff can be extremely rude and argumentative at times. The staff can only be as good as the doctor.
"Our Doctor does not follow parameters he has set", He follows medical guidelines set by the state of Florida. It would be helpful to know the details of the staff being rude and argumentative with names. Please contact us through our website with the details or call our office and request to speak to the Nurse Manager.
