Ratings for Dr. Phil Hardin
Met him for an appointment about 20 years ago. Said that I was ineligible to use the pen since HE thought I needed better control and didn't think that the pen would assist. I went somewhere else. 20 years later, after 30 years of diabetes type 1, I have no complications and am in GREAT health - no thanks to HIM. Would be the LAST doctor I would ever see. It's all about HIM and not about the patient. HE's extremely rude, presumptuous, and ignorant. Move on.
Dr. Hardin is an amazing doctor, I have been his patient since 2015. He is very knowledgeable, in my opinion a true expert in his field. He knows home to communicate effectively with his patients so that they gain understanding of not only diabetes, but the treatment plan that he determines is the best course of action.
I have only been seeing Dr. Hardin for 3 years now however I find him to be extremely knowledgeable and very kind. He has put me on different medications and I am now off of the insulin that had made me gain over 35lbs. Ive been losing the weight (10lbs left to go). As for the other comments about him being arrogant.......I disagree completely!!! He absolutely knows what he is doing and I am glad he is my doctor. I have had to call his office a couple of times and he has never not responded to me (maybe because I am not a constant caller?) I think that anyone that gets referred to Dr. Hardin has been placed in the best hands possible. Let face it people Diabetes is not a pretty thing and if we can get it under control and live a normal life then lets do it and stop being so bitter. Thank you Dr. Hardin for everything you have done and continue to do for me!!!!! Cheers!
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.
