What Patients Say

His bedside manner is amazing – he’s so calm and comforting. He did the retrievals and transfers for my two IVF cycles. First was BFN, so he did some tweaking and the second was BFP. We have a 13 month old DD now, and owe it to Dr. Hardy. (if we had a boy, Hardy just might have been the middle name) I love that man!

Thanks to Dr. Hardy we have a beautiful son. He is now 2 1/2. He was very thorough and tells it like it is. He is extremely smart, but truly does care and wants you to have and I quote “kids who will go to Princeton”. We had Male factor infertility and had success on IVF #1. We are now going to start a new cycle at the end of Aug 2012 for baby number 2.

Dealing with infertility is an emotional, draining rollercoaster ride which had seen us go to different physicians. Dr Hardy was the first doctor to give us our options presented in a calm, methodical and compassionate way. He is diligent, thorough and followed through in every way. I have recommended him to anyone I know dealing with infertility. He is an excellent doctor.

Hi everyone – I just wanted say that I just made an appointment with Dr. Hardy for a second opinion. I’m currently at RSC and even though I have been happy there, I have done 3 IVFs without success and I think it’s time to see what someone else might say. So anyway, I thought I’d introduce myself and say thanks for all the good recommendations for Dr. Hardy.
