The worst Dr I have every seen, and I've been to many- went to see him because of a swollen lymph node under my arm that keeps reoccurring. He said that he couldn't help me because it could be from shaving and I needed an HIV test, which was negative of course since I have been married to the same women for almost 26 years..and she is negative as well... makes no sense to me.. I WASTED MONEY ON THE WORTHLESS APPT to be told I need to see somebody else.. ridiculous!!!!

I Just had inguinal and femoral hernia surgery by Dr. Bartels. I am so thankful for this God gifted surgeon! I have been complaining of groin and thigh pain for so many years to so many different Doctors and they ignored my complaints. They wanted me to waste my time and money on therapy or different medicine. I knew I'd find the right Dr. eventually that could figure out what was wrong and Dr Bartels did. He spent time listening to me and has the best bedside manner. He doesn't rush he listens

He saved my life and will forever be thankful. I admire him and his bedside manners are wonderful. He did emergency surgery on my stomach and was a miracle when I came out of coma. He's the best.

Dr. Bartels did my parathyroid surgery. I went into the hospital with stomach pain, chest pain, and bone pain in my feet. Immediately after surgery I felt great! The pain was gone, totally. The surgery was easy. I only took Tylenol for pain because there wasn't much. I just cant believe how bad I felt going in, and how great I felt after surgery; I am two weeks post operative and I feel wonderful! My numbers are good on my blood work and I would have Dr. Bartels do surgery if I needed it again.
in Harmar PA |
