Featured Reviews



David Hardy has been a life saver in a part of the US that has been uniquely and disturbingly indifferent to my suffering. I could not possibly be more grateful for the way he takes the time to truly listen to and evaluate my concerns, and he responds with empathy I have not found in any other doctor or care provider within UT, or anywhere in East Texas for that matter, at all. I simply don't have the words to thank David for how much he has helped me both with my conditions and to simply help to ease my fears. There are, perhaps, one or two other doctors whom I would rate as five stars, but, on that same scale, David easily deserves at least ten and is in a class of his own far superior to the rest when it comes to quality of care. I am extremely lucky to have found Mr. Hardy, and I will continue to recommend him to everyone who asks for my help locating a quality healthcare provider. 10 out of 5 stars on every visit, without any hesitation.

Although I only saw Dr David Hardy from ETMC (UT Health) on Fifth st, a few times, he really cared about my health and showed concern. He did more than other doctors have done for me in the little time I saw him. He explained well how he planned to help me feel better and all I can say is now I feel better thanks to him! Thank you Dr David Hardy!!
