Dr. Phil Hardin's Ratings
Dr Hardin is very knowledgeable in his field. However. He refuses to get into the modern age so you have to FAX your results. In my case I had to drive for half an hour one way to do so. I told his wife(?) at the counter this. The Dr. then told me -via her- not to fax anymore results.
It took two weeks to fix my low results because we played phone tag; she never picks up the phone the first time. I saw the commercial on t.v. about Invokana, that it can lead to bladder cancer. In coordination with my family Dr. (Dr Hardin is 'to buisy' to respond when I call) I decided to not take this medication anymore. He then REFUSED to continue our patient/physian relationship and told me I had my last consultation. I made it clear that I did not question his knowledge but I did not trust the medication. There was no way he'd take my answer. I wish the Enterprice will beam up it's captain. And all his knowledge.
I see nothing arrogant in this Dr....in fact he is likely the best I have ever seen period. Maybe you gave him a reason to act in a way you did not like. He has always met me in the hall or came into the room with a smile and has always been pleasant to me.
He is the rudest, most arrogant doctor I've ever met. There is no excuse for a doctor to belittle his patient.
I had type 1 diabetes for over 46 years. I do not expect a doctor to hold my hand, or even to genuinely care about me, but a little respect would be nice.
He has been my diabetologist ever since I came back to Canada in 2007 after living (and being diagnosed) in the middle East. I've never had reason to ever think of changing doctors, despite there being many fine specialists whom are closer to me than him.
He never beats around the bush and is genuinely interested in getting the best care possible for you. If that means taking some flack from him, then deal with it--he wants what is best for you; he''s not there to baby you.
I was afraid of him at first but now I like him. He is a wonderful diabetic doctor and is extremely knowlegable. I am in and out of my appointments within 20-30 minutes with little or no waiting in the waiting room. He doesn't beat around the bush and is straight with you.
Wow!! Dr. Hardin is a knowledgeable, well read and published specialist in Diabetic care. What some may confuse as arrogance or possibly poor bedside manner is that Dr. Hardin is there to provide support and guidance as the PATIENT cares for their diabetes. Dr. Hardin, his staff, your family Physician cannot control the disease in a Patient. The Patient must do this and is accountable for their own health, and must responsibility.
Yes, he is arrogant. He's a specialist after all. But he is extremely good at what he does. I've seen him for 15 years since I was first diagnosed with diabetes. He didn't treat me as a human being until I got into grad school but still has always been a concerned and caring doctor. I've been to other endocrinologists and have always gone back to Dr. Hardin. I live out of province now but will happily make the trip back to Edmonton to see him a couple of times a year!
