General Comments

I used Dr Hardigan for over 20 years thru bypass surgery and aortic valve replacement. He always made time to see me and explain what was going on in a way that I could understand. He is very concerned with his patients and yes he did warn me about weight, diet and race increasing my risk with cardiac diisease. I don't think him telling risk should be called racial slurs. I am a woman of color and Dr Hardigan is NOT a racist. The patient that accuses him of "racial slurs" is once again stirring a pot and using race as an excuse. I love Dr H but with last surgery I fell thru the cracks. I waited 2 days to go home and on the 2nd my family got upset and he was in SC. He thought I went home the day before. I had 3 Drs and I guess they all forgot. I would use Dr Hardigan any day of the week. He is an excellent cardiologist!

Negative Comments

dr hardigan is arrogant and doesn't listen to the patient--thinks he knows best without listening and insists he is correct. this attitude would/could have caused me some serious medical problems if I had listened to his advice instead of insisting I was correct and demanding he run another test (which he did 3 weeks later) I had another blocked major artery 90% which he had to correct. He initially denied the problem was heart related and wanted to send me to a lung specialist !!

Dr. Hardigan was inappropriate, insensitive and did more harm than good for me.
Wait time
15 minutes
"Wait time was very reasonable."
Easy Appointment
"Appointments were easier to get with less wait time than most offices in the area."
Promptness
"I waited 15 minutes tops."
Friendly Staff
"The staff was professional & friendly."
Fair and Accurate Diagnosis
"The doctor disagreed with another doctors diagnosis and this doctor chose to swear at me about the other doctors course of treatment. He should have taken it up with the other doctor."
Spends Time with Patients
"He spent plenty of time telling me to find a Nazi and have myself put in a concentration camp so that I'd lose weight. He assumed I wasn't married and was spending time telling me how I wish I was like the skinny girls at clubs. "
Appropriate Follow-up
"I cancelled my follow-ups."
The doctor was inappropriate, insensitive and did more harm than good for me. I left the office crying and depressed. While berating about weight, he made racial slurs.

Positive Comments

The office environment and staff were good.

Negative Comments

When disagreeing with another doctors prescribed treatment, he swore at me about the other doctors choice of treatment plan. He berated me about my weight for over 15 minutes. He made racial slurs. He didn't trust me as the patient to be telling him the truth about me.

General Comments

Worst doctor I've had the misfortune to see. My experience of seeing him has made me apprehensive about doctors in general.
