Dr. George G. Hartnell installed a chemotherapy port in my chest. He explained the operation well, had great bedside manner, did the operation quickly, and I had a minimum amount of pain. I will recommend him to any of my friends who may need his services.

I had an emergency procedure with Dr. Hartnell and he was great. He understood my concerns and my worries. He made sure that I had a complete understanding of everything & he made me far more comfortable with the decisions that needed to be made, and with the procedure itself. He gave me specific directions on what to do if I were to have any problems, as well. I would happily go back to him or recommend him. Thank you, Dr. Hartnell.

I was very pleased with the services received by Dr. Hartnell. I had a complicated situation that required extra attention and Dr. Hartnell was with me every step of the way. Having a low platelet count, the surgical procedure required follow up and Dr. Hartnell was personally available to assist in ensuring the catheters I received were working properly and there were no set backs. His bedside manner and professionalism put me at ease during a very stressful situation.

After several months of excruciating pain, my mom (96 years old) was referred to Dr. Hartnell with two compression fractures in her spine. Dr. Hartnell suggested kyphoplasty and explained in great detail what the procedure involved and any risks. Mom decided to have the procedure at Baystate Springfield, and left the hospital that afternoon pain free. He, personally, followed up a few days later by phone to be sure there were no problems. I would give Dr. Hartnell the highest recommendation.

Dr. Hartnell is one of the best doctors I have been treated by. He took the time to explain medical procedures to me and he answered all of my questions. He personally called me at least 3 times which is unheard in todays world- you only get calls from the doctors staff. He is competent as well as compassionate and made sure all of my needs were met . I would highly recommend this professional. His office staff were also very nice.

Dr Hartnell took the time to talk with me, explained things, made sure I was as comfortable as possible. The procedure was done in a short time and he showed concern for my comfort all during that also. He is by far one of the best doctors that I have ever seen.

I recently had a procedure performed by Dr. Hartnell. He is an extremely competent physician. I appreciated the time he took to thoroughly explain the procedure to my wife and myself. He also took the time to personally call me at home to make sure that I was comfortable and not experiencing any problems. I would highly recommend this physician.

I require IR services on a regular and I have worked with many physicians since. I had a serious cancer diagnosis almost twenty years ago and have ongoing related issues. I have not worked with many physicians who have the clinical expertise and competence of Dr Hartnell.
