Patient Reviews (2)
in Burien, WA |
I have had two colonoscopies performed by Dr. Hartwell. He is friendly, informative, skilled and efficient. I wasn't happy that I had to wait several hours beyond my scheduled time for the procedure, but I'm not sure that was within Dr. Hartwell's control. I was very impressed that he called me at 8 p.m. in the evening after the colonoscopy to discuss the results.
in Des Moines |
I found him to be caring, intelligent, and a pretty good listener. I went from hating hospitals and clinics for their repetitive, unnecessary, and self serving test and procedures to trusting anything this man tells me about my conditions. Other clinics would rather "monitor" me for the rest of my life doing the same things over and over. He actually prescribed a medication that cured me of the cause of the initial liver transplant over 10 years ago. Other clinics didn't.
