Seen Dr. Bartelt for follow up from injection. He is always very professional and explains everything in a way I can understand. He is never in a hurry or made me feel like he doesn’t have the time to talk or answer my questions. He is very pleasant to have as a doctor. Would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Bartelt and staff took excellent care of me ! My wrist has healed very well, and the scar hardly shows at all.

I appreciated his honest evaluation. There was nothing he could do for me. He gave me a couple of options, one being physical therapy.

Fixed my wrist good as new!

I had two knee scopes done by him and it made no difference I actually think there worse than when i went and saw him. After my left knee was done I had a huge bruise on side of my leg on top of that developed a blister which are away my muscles. Also had shots on my wrist which made it worse. I'll never return!

Had pain in my knee. No improvement. Nothing has changed. Seems like his assistant takes care of the patients and he just supervises. I feel like seeing him was a total waste of time and money. My knee is no better now than it was. Actually seemed worse after the second visit with him and the second shot to my knee.

Dr. Bartelt fixed my trigger finger and I'm back out fishing good as new.
Very willing to take the time that is needed to examine me thoroughly and then explain the diagnosis to me. Completely satisfied with how my questions were answered and how I was cared for !!
