      Surgery for pectus excavatum repair was on 7/7/16 but Dr. Hartman has been checking on my son for the last 3 years. Since day 1, he demonstrated to be very knowledgeable, experienced, kind and a great person. He really understands the patient's perspective. My son had no fear about the surgery and most of that confidence came from the talks he had with Dr. Hartman who answered very every little question that we had. Dr. Hartman's team at the office and in the operating room are fabulous!

      Dr. Hartman performed an appendectomy on my son about 10 days ago at Good Samaritan Hospital. Any nurses that heard he was our surgeon said that we were very lucky, and indeed we were. He was so reassuring and gentle when he came to have a chat to us and our son. We knew immediately that we were in good hands. The surgery went so smoothly and our 11 year old was able to walk 21 laps of the Pediatric ward the same day as his surgery! Thank you Dr. Hartman!

      Dr. Hartman is such a loving, caring doctor. He took the time to talk with my daughter about the surgery he was going to perform and why he needed to do it. He got to know her (with questions about siblings etc.) and was reassuring the entire time. He also did a great job clinically. He gave me utter confidence and had the caring demeanor one would want from any surgeon. Fantastic surgery experience.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
