My 78 year old mother was 8 minutes late for her appointment today. They told her she would have to reschedule her appointment. Totally unacceptable, they were only 2 other patients in the waiting room. We will find another doctor who is more understanding

My father in law was recently a patient of Dr. Hardy's at the hospital there in Wilmington, NC. His expertise was evident and his honesty was something that my family appreciated more than he will ever know. He had a wonderful bedside manner and was able to explain things in a way that we easily understood what was going on & what the plan should be. We are grateful for his care. Thank you.

I’m so thankful for Dr Hardy! I was having some issues, he listened to me and took action. We went from the exam room to his in house surgical room. He biopsied the lump in my neck and turned out to be cancer. My physician kept treating me for viruses. So thank you that Dr Hardy took that extra step! That was in 2014 and have been cancer free since 2015! Thank you Dr Hardy and staff!

I was so touched how caring this doctor is. I have worked in a hospital and saw unemotional doctors talk so cold to family. Dr. Hardy is a model for doctors to follow. May God bless Dr Hardy.
