Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.
To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.
As of 4/15/2020, Dr. Hardy has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients.

Lisa (and I think Tammy) were excellent and skilled ultrasound techs... they were pleasant and made me feel at ease... Dr Hardy was very nice as well along with his nurse Brittany... everyone made me feel reassured about my condition and made me feel that I was seeking out care with the best possible professionals that I could!

Dr. Hardy is an exceptional doctor. He listens to my concerns and fears. He takes the time to answer all of my questions and includes my husband in all of our discussions. My case does not follow a typical textbook case and Dr. Hardy never once dismissed anything I say, or makes me feel stupid, but looks at each issue and treats me as a whole person, not just a bunch of different problems. Because of his determination, caring spirit, patience and willingness to take on a challenge I no longer am using a wheelchair and we have discovered a disorder other doctors never thought of looking for. I truly believe that if it wasn't for Dr. Hardy my life would have been short but I now have hope for a long, full life.

More than an hour late with no apology. No eye contact. My daughter was recently diagnosed with a rare condition called nutcracker syndrome. Traveled from NY to see this physician as Cleveland clinic reported to be a facility that treats this condition. The physician seemed rushed, said, "you'll have to convince me it is nutcracker syndrome." We came to see him to have the condition evaluated. This statement seemed bizarre. Then said he has been "wrong before. Didn't think someone had compression and indeed they did." My daughter was scheduled for a sonogram next but the doctor canceled it and requested records from another provider. When I reiterated we traveled from NY, he said, after he gets the records, he will call. I thought they would request a faxed report right then Had a person with him who was not introduced. He asked her to give us a card with his information and then he left the room. My daughter said. "mom, I am not sending that doctor anything. I would not want him to treat me. The ultimate irony is that I work in a hospital system and tech courses to staff about how to treat patients. The Cleveland Clinic empathy video is used as a teaching tool. I felt like the nurse who told me the doctor was backlogged and the doctor both needed to watch that video.

I'm very grateful for all the Cleveland Clinic has done for me to have a better quality of life. I'm a Veteran, & unfortunately, the VA informed me of this cituation I have, & was "addimate" about me allowing them to operate on me. when I refused, & insisted on returning to Cleveland, they had no choice but to allow me to. (with protest) I'm very grateful, Dr Hardy, & Dr Smolock saw fit to "Not" operate. if I'd allowed the VA to, I probably wouldn't be alive to tell this story. it's also unfortunate, that if I ever do need to return to Cleveland, it will be another battle with the VA. I'll fight that battle when I come to it. I thank you from the bottom of my mended heart, for everything ya'll have done for me, & the treatment I've recieved this time, as well as last year, when I had Open Heart. the Cleveland Clinic will always continue to be in my daily prayers.

Everything was above board, the only complaint (small) would be the time I had to wait to see Dr. Hardy, but he explained what and why, that cleared the problem and that made the wait trouble.

Dr. Hardy has saved my life 2 times and is the most amazing Surgeon I have ever known. He treats me like family and saved my life when Dr Abouassaly found a venous aneurysm on my vena cava attached to 4 major organs and my main nerve. I recommend him and The Cleveland Clinic to everyone.
