What People Say About Dr. Roger Hartl, MD

I am not one who likes to leave good or bad reviews for anything but I feel compelled to do so here. I needed a Microdiscectomy and I performed extensive research as to who the best Doctors were at performing this procedure. I met with 3 Doctors. All of them were regarded as the best of the best by any objective international standard. When I went to Dr. Hartl's office, the moment I walked in the door I was met by a caring and gracious staff from the receptionist, billing coordinator, NP's, and Doctors. Then I met Dr. Hartl. I knew he was incredible at his craft as his patients include famous athletes and celebrities who have the wealth and means to choose anyone and they selected Dr. Hartl. What struck me right away was his humility and kindness. He patiently answered all of my questions. It’s not so much what he said that convinced me that my search was over. It was the feeling you get when you are in the presence of someone that genuinely cares about you and your wellbeing

I felt like I was the only patient I was treated so well. The advice I received was thorough and although complex, was delivered in a manner that was understandable. The patient coordinators were extremely helpful as well. I feel that I am at the right place and with the right people helping me.

I experienced near immediate relief and rapid, smooth recovery after two procedures. Dr Hartl and his team were excellent. From the first interactions, through the visit, recommendations, surgery and follow-up - his team, and the team at Weill Cornell, were professional, thoughtful, specific and empathetic. It is not often that someone walks away from a series of interactions with doctors and hospitals with expectations exceeded - Dr Hartl, and the hospital team accomplished just that.

Dr Hartl performed surgery on my back on November 12. I have relief and my incision is healing beautifully. Albeit you may wait to see him, he is in high demand and well worth the wait. He is thorough with each patient he sees.

Positively EXCELLENT!! Not only looked at MRI imaging, ordered CT imaging. (not ordered in Buffalo, NY) Performed a proper exam in the office. Thoroughly explained his findings and recommendations. Performed surgery. I had symptoms for over 4 years - progressively getting worse. Until seeing Dr Härtl. He performed the surgery - some symptoms resolved, others may not due to length of time symptoms not being treated in Buffalo NY. Definitely worth traveling to NYC to see! Excellent neurosurgeon!!

Excellent doctor. Not only does he talk to me and discuss my situation he also engages my husband in the conversation. We will be going through surgery and recovery together. So it’s important that we both ask questions and ultimately understand my condition and how Dr. HARTL will attempt to make it better. He is patient and communicative. This helps me to be more at ease and trust in his decisions.

I cannot express how happy I was to be able to work with Dr. Hartl. What he did was nothing short of miraculous. He was able to remove a tumor from my spine and, in a few days, I was actually able to walk again without even needing to use any device. His talent as a surgeon cannot be overrated. Moreover, he is a missionary doctor who uses that talent to help people in great need. Dr. Hartl is one of the kindest most thoughtful people I have ever met. I feel deeply thankful he was my surgeon.

Dr. Hartl is just outstanding. I could write so many words of praise but to put it simply his caring feelings, his professionalism, his obvious proven track record of success in his field and the confidence you feel instantly when you meet him and his team put me very much at ease and confident in turning my care over to him. I am looking forward to having Dr. Hartl take care of me and am very confident it will be a success.
