Dr. Hartshorn's Care Philosophy

The field of medicine is changing, and physicians must be able to keep up. I believe that having the knowledge and skills of a general surgeon is not enough to be excellent at my job. We must be flexible, creative, and most importantly, be able to relate to our patient to truly succeed in today?s ever-changing world. It is my goal to provide individualized treatment, because no problem or solution is the same.
