At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Overall, a very positive experience. Most importantly, Doctors I've met are very good. However, per my visit this week, I was surprised how some of the Nurses were not diligent in regard to preventive COVID-19 measures.
Dr. Hardt is attentive, listens to problems and concerns, and answers with detail and references to research. He provides recommendations for exercise that can be done at home and does not simply rush you off to physical therapy. His predictions as to the long course of recovery were correct--it does take about one year to fully recover.
Doctors gave me all the options and walked me through the benefits and drawbacks of each. They offered a lot of options and told me the possible results of each. Although the place was busy, they make me feel at home.
I was very impressed with Dr. Hardt, his knowledge and manner. He explained my condition and possible treatments so I could understand. Part 1 of my treatment was over before I could say okay. Support staff and reception were helpful and friendly.
Although the Resident Physician took care of me on this visit, who by the way was very thorough in answering my questions, before I left, Dr. Hardt stopped by my exam room to see how I was doing. That was unexpected and very nice.
He was patient friendly, confident, caring, polite, went along with my request to have the cortisone shot now rather than wait and see. I appreciated that very much. He did not exhibit I know better attitude some mds project.
Excellent surgeon. Actually spends time with you and explains things. Very personable and seems to genuinely care. After 2 years of pain and 2 back surgeries he correctly diagnosed my problem and alleviated 2 years of pain and discomfort. Can't rate him high enough.
Extraordinary job on my hip replacementâ€šÃ„Ã® better than I even expected. In addition to being an outstanding surgeon, Dr. Hardt is very caring and excellent at explaining procedures and outcomes and answering questions. I could go on....
Feel secure in hands of extremely competent, caring doctors teams they've assembled. Had my post op exam with Dr. Hardt this morning. Explained everything that occured in surgery . Showed me on xrays how very good my hip looks. Checked wobly knee and gave me imjection to alleviate pain. Suggested possible spinal injection to mitigate my back pain. I will be back for other hip when time is right.
Dr. Hardt is extremely intelligent and has a great way of sharing his knowledge a patient can understand. He definitely shows he is concerned about your situation and takes time to explain the detailsâ€š He does not make you feel like he needs to rush you out of the room.
Dr Hardt is easy to talk to and takes time to answer all your questions. He is an excellent surgeon and was all I hoped for in planning my hip replacement surgery. I travelled 40 miles and he was well worth it.
He's very direct...He is explain in detail my examination what's going on with my knee and my options...Answer all My questions in detail...And most of all I'm real comfortable with him...I trust is Judgment on my Health care option.
Dr Hardt has been my doctor through several very complicated orthopedic issues. He is a great surgeon, but is also great at talking to patients. He is extremely good at explaining what's going on, what the plan is, etc. I never feel rushed with him. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Dr. Hardt was wonderful. Not only do I have no concerns about his professional ability he is very , thorough,thoughyful and kind. After telling a friend about my experience he will be seeing Dr. Hardt next year when he feels he will need his hip replacement. .I love the check in procedure at Northwestern. It's so simple and I've never had to wait very long even when the waiting room seems packed. Everyone I've dealt with including a maintenance man directing me has been very kind and professional.
Dr. Hardt is a really knowledgable surgeon; he's also a warm person and seems to really care about your recovery. I love that he uses newer techniques that are less invasive. I feel entirely confident in the care I received.
I'm very pleased with Dr. Hardt, and my hip replacement at NW. He is thorough in his explanations, and takes the time to answer any and all questions related to the surgery and recovery. I've already recommended him to a colleague.
To begin, the wait time to see Dr. Hardt was minimal. Dr. Hardt made good eye contact with me and took the time to carefully explain my injury to me. He was professional and made me feel confident in his care.
Dr Kevin Hardt was very thorough And knowledgeable, when explaining the procedure. He answered my specific questions with reasonable and clearly understood facts and statements. .He also provided information specific to my case and condition.
In my opinion he is excellent. Tells it like it is, forward and direct. Explains everything thoroughly. Listens to me, the patient, and makes me fell relaxed and listens to all of my concerns; then gives me options on how to handle the situation. I have had two cousins and an in-law see him after my experience. They had knee replacements after I had mine. (both of my knees have been replaced. They saw my results and then had theirs done.
Just an excellent doctor. Down to earth. Very knowledgeable. If he cannot help you, he will refer you to another excellent doctor that can. Went to see him re:hips. After just an x-ray, he could tell hips are not causing my problems. All coming from my lower back hence referral.
Dr. Hardt seems to be very skilled, especially in anterior hip replacement procedures. My surgery went really well and I'm been able to resume pretty normal daily activities quickly. Dr. Hardt also seems to care about patients and outcomes.
Dr Hardt is very personable & easy to talk to. Has great "bedside manner". He's also a very good surgeon, which I know from my previous very successful surgery. He listens to my concerns & also very clearly communicates what to expect from the surgery itself as well as post surgery.
