Please don’t ever let the monthly newsletter go away. I absolutely love it. Sometimes I think it’s the only reason I show up to work…just kidding! Please send my appreciation to the good people who put together the newsletter. They must be awesome.”

“The customer service department at Hardy Diagnostics is phenomenal. If I have a deadline to beat, I do not even bother with my other vendors. The CSRs are always available, knowledgeable, and provide a positive experience over the phone and through emails. I have never been let down by Hardy Diagnostics. If I have a question regarding shipping, ordering, technical specifications, or billing I am always given Grade A attention.

Overall, I recommend your company to everyone, and your website is very user friendly. Your pricing is very competitive and I can always get a discounted price on items we purchase.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chuck Williams in this public forum for being one of, if not the best sales person I’ve dealt with in my 20 plus years in this profession. Thank you Hardy Diagnostics for being there when I need you, and thank you Customer Service for taking such good care of my little corner of the world.”

Mirco Supervisor

“I’ve written before to say how happy I am to be a customer of Hardy Diagnostics. What really appeals to me about Hardy Diagnostics is the fact that even though you have grown tremendously in the fifteen years I’ve been dealing with you, I am still treated with the same friendly courtesy as if this were a small company. I recently had to deal with Fisher Scientific. What a comedown!!!!! If Hardy Diagnostics carried everything I need, I would never buy from another vendor!!! Thanks!!”
