Dr. Hardacre is the best surgeon, first of all; and with comprehensive follow-ups that include discussing any related concerns a patient may have, and he gives sensibly explained advice.

I was told by some that Dr. Hardacre was the best Dr. for the surgery I had. I am very pleased with the treatment I have received from Dr. Hardacre. I will definitely recommend him to anyone needing treatment. Thank you Dr. Hardacre.

My family and I cannot adequately describe in words how wonderful Dr. Jerry Hardacre has been overseeing my care during a most difficult time in my life. I came into the ER and ended up being hospitalized for the next 37 days getting home the afternoon before Christmas eve. He was the captain of the ship with a team of excellent specialists assisting him in saving my life and caring for my medical needs for 5 1/2 weeks in the hospital. Dr. Jerry Hardacre is not only an outstanding surgeon but one of the most caring and compassionate physicians I have ever encountered in my life. I thank God constantly that in His perfect plan for my life that it was Dr. Hardacre who saved my life and oversaw my care and recovery back to health.

At my first visit with Dr. Hardacre, because of my health history and symptoms he explained and encouraged me to sign up for the Breast Cancer High Risk Clinic. I did so. With their help my insurance company approved an MRI. It was the MRI that found my cancer. It hadn't shown up on mammograms or ultrasounds.

Dr. H. is an excellent surgeon and I am very pleased with the results of my cancer surgery and my cancer free 6 month mammogram. He is an extremely compassionate physician who always explains things thoroughly and always tells you the next step in your treatment as does his nursing staff. I can't say enough about his excellent practice and the employees who work with him.
