Willing to answer questions, not just run in and out of the examining room. Builds your confidence with upbeat attitude.

Dr. Hartzell is very personable. He asked questions and listened to my answers. He explained things in a manner that was easy to understand. He shook my hand when he came into the room and when he left the room.

I had an appt with Dr Hartzell on Monday. I had injured my arm and didn't know if I would need surgery. A family friend referred me to Dr Hartzell. My visit from start to finish was professional and caring. All personnel at this facility are great. Dr Hartzell couldn't have been nicer or more knowledgeable. I got a great report and will recommend him to others. Sheila Riley

My 9 year old broke his wrist and every interaction we had with Dr. Hartzell was genuine and kind. He spoke TO my son and not above him. He made all of us feel very calm in a very tense situation and answered all of our questions. I highly recommend him for children :)

Office visit went well. Dr. Hartzell was very friendly and easy to talk to.
in N. Manchester, IN |
I saw Dr. Hartzell for a second opinion and am so glad I did. He treated me with respect and compassion in regards to the pain in my knee and leg- unlike the competitor that I saw first. He was very conservative in his treatment recommendations- and I appreciate that. The end results may be the same but he definitely is attempting to avoid surgery until the last possible moment. That is a relief.
in Nappanee, indiana |
I have been very pleased with the care I've received so far since I had total right knee replacement. I was very apprehensive & have never been made to feel like my questions or feelings are crazy. I will definitely go back to dr. Hartzel for my left when needed.
