Dr. Hartman did my spine fusion almost 2 years ago.. It is so good to be out of pain, and to be able to stand straight again. He is a very kind and gentle Dr. who really will care about you in all areas of your surgery and rehab. I would recommend Dr. Hartman to everyone.

Dr. Hartman only wanted the best for me and did everything the right way. He was always straight forward and and made sure that my stay at Goshen hospital was nothing but perfect. After receiving surgery from him, my pain vanished. Amazing doctor.

Our family unfortunately has bad backs. Six years ago my husband who was then 34 had his L3,4,5 fused. He also did our 16 year olds L4,5,S1 fusion surgery two years ago. He did an amazing job. I would not take anyone in our family to anyone else.

I went to Dr. Hartman with lower back pain that was diagnosed by other doctors as 3 herniated discs with which he agreed. I had the injections, therapy, etc. none of which helped. He said a spinal fusion was the last resort. He did the surgery and the healing process was not like he described early on. Much more painful. Over a year later I am still hurting 24/7 and can't stand or walk for more than 10 minutes. I am NOT a satisfied patient and would NOT recommend this doctor.
