I am 90 years old and over these many years I have seen a number of optomologists. I have found Dr. Carl Hartman exceptionally knowledgable, professional and courteous. I have recommended him to some of my friends and will continue to do so. I only hope that he does not retire before I am gone. I can not say enough about how I feel about him. Jack Stellato

I've been seeing Dr. Hartman for over 12 years. He's removed a cataract in my left eye, guided me to a retina specialist to have a vitrectomy. He said he is trained to do this but since he has done them so rarely he wanted me to have it done by an experienced expert. He's now helping me get my glaucoma stabilized. He explains everything completely and spends as much time as it takes for me to be comfortable with his treatment plan.
in Cypress, CA |
He's super friendly and puts you at ease right away. He's very thorough and knows what he is doing. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I had PRK surgery 2006, and an enhancement in 2013. Dr. H. walked me through every step of the way, explaining the process and what to expect. Everything from the appointment setting, to the initial consultation, to the follow up visits were smooth, timely, and wonderful. When I went back for the enhancement, Dr. Carl recommended that we try monovision. I love it! No reading glasses! Earlier this year, my mom went to Dr. H. for cataract surgery. She raves about her awesome experience too!

Amazing doctor...I felt like I was his most important patient. Answers questions thoroughly with caring patience. His diagnosis was spot on and I am extremely happy with my results.
in Downey, CA |
Dr. Hartman who has been my ophthalmologist for over 30 years is a phenomenal doctor and works miracles. I have recommended him for years to my family and friends; he is patient and listens to your concerns and provides options for you. My mother has had two surgeries and I have had one; we were extremely satisfied with the outcome and the courtesy of the staff. Dr Hartman and staff: Thank you for taking care of my family, friends and me. TH
in Carson, CA |
Dr. Hartman took a personal interest in my condition. I had cataracts in both eyes and after a thorough examination, he explained in detail what his recommended course of action would be, including rare but potential risks, costs, and expected outcomes. I was made to feel very comfortable in his care, as he is very good at what he does. The cataract in my left eye had become extremely dense and took extraordinary skill on his part to remove it. The result was perfect! Thank you doctor!!!
in Cypress, CA |
He is a people's physician...he relates. He listens, he explains, he answers, he cares!! And, he is skilled. These multiple qualities are a rare find. in medicine, these days.

I can see why the practice is so busy he is great doctor. Really knows his stuff.
in Stanton, CA |
I have been under the care of Doctor Hartman for about ten years. I find him to be professional, up to date, and the most caring of my issues. Excellent bedside manner, positive outlook, and great sense of humor are only a few of his sterling traits. He always takes the time to explain requirements and procedures to me, and makes me feel that I am his only visit of the day. Many, many kudos for this man! He inspires confidence in the medical profession.

Carl & his staff are unparalleled and have always gone out of their way to make sure I am not only comfortable but informed.
