Dr. Hartman is the best of the best!! He is always right, and he always knows what to do - even when other physicians don't. On several occasions, other physicians have mistakenly diagnosed something - and they would be wrong. Dr. Hartman would always know what to do - he has treated my husband (a physician), myself and my 2 children and many of our friends. He is truly amazing!! Be prepared to wait a little - bring a book or work- he will solve whatever problems you have!!

He does not spend time throughly examing his young patients. I brought my 23 month old son with red dots on his face. If he had checked his temperature , looked in his mouth, or anywhere on his body - he would have uncovered hand , mouth, foot disease which he got of course from daycare. But no with his quick diagnosis of eczema - he sent us on our way. We were sent out of daycare right after for this disease which is contagious.

Dr. Hartman is a fantastic physician. However, his staff is a huge problem. I have been a patient to for many years and have suffered through a change of staff, all of whom have been impossible. They NEVER return phone messages. The phone is rarely answered; and even when the doctor has promised someone will get back, they never do. I remain as a patient only because of the doctor. It is virtually impossible to make a follow up appointment after you leave the office so do it before leaving.

The staff is unapologetically rude. They do not return calls from patients. Not worth it. NO doctor is THAT good to have to leave endless messages with his rude staff. When you bring up their rudeness, they just say, We're busy, as if that is an excuse for rudeness and refusing to return calls for weeks.

Dr.Hartman is very knowledgeable, listens and gives good advice;but, unfortanately, his front desk staff can be a real problem. They aren't patient-oriented or very helpful and can even be downright rude. They could use a course in public relations training as doctors are often judged by the behavior of their office staff. So a word of caution to the wise.
