Dr. Alexander Hardwick is returning to Santa Barbara to join the Santa Barbara Cardiovascular Medical Group. He started his medical training in Springfield, Illinois where he completed medical school at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. He went on to complete his Internal Medicine residency here at Cottage Hospital and was named Chief Resident in his final year. Following this he completed his general cardiology fellowship at Kaiser Permanente Norther California/ San Francisco Medical Center, where he was also named chief fellow. During his time as an internal medicine resident at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara he developed a love for the community and the area. He is now excited to be able to serve this community once again.

Dr. Hardwick strongly believes in the patient-doctor relationship. He finds that the best avenue to health and medicine is not a one size fits all approach, but rather by investing heavily in a deep, trusting relationship and establishing individualized medical care.
