Dr. Michael H. Hart, MD says

I appreciate your honest feedback about my care.  I strive to provide 100% patient and family satisfaction.  My philosophy is that of a team effort with the patient, family members, primary care providers, nutritionists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists all working together to achieve health improvements and benefits with the diagnosis and treatment of simple and complex gastrointestinal problems. 

Vinton, VA |
I not only have worked with him professionally since he has arrived in Virginia, but also my son is his patient. He really cares about his patients and he spends a great deal of time explaining things. He encouraged patients to email him with questions years before it became standard practice. He is a great doctor.
