Dr Hartshorn has a bedside manner that is unbelievable. Prior to his move to MA he was in CA and did my moms hip replacement in 2017. Hands down an excellent doctor. I would highly recommend him all the way from CA! He is so missed by us! But he left us another great doctor. Dr. Daniel Stephenson!

Thanks to Dr. Hartshorn and his staff I am well on my to a full recovery of a Bimalleolar ankle break. Very thorough in explaining my injury, treatment options and surgical procedures, and recovery milestones. I'm so thankful to have found Ortho Boston, beautiful clean office space, professional staff, and a great cup of ginger tea at every appointment to ease my anxiety. Dr. Hartshorn extraordinary, he followed up with me several times after surgery, and returned all my calls promptly and most

I went to see Dr. Hartshorn for a shoulder problem because one of my colleagues said he was the best in town. From my experience with him combined with my experiences with other orthopedic surgeons, the recommendation appears to be accurate. Hard to imagine there is a better doc out there.

I am actually not a patient myself, however I did take my father to see Dr. Hartshorn when he fell and fractured his hip. He was referred by a close friend, and I will be forever thankful. Dr. Hartshorn is kind, courteous, respectful, and, after seeing him multiple times for the requisite follow-up appointments, he almost feels like part of the family at this point. I am writing this review to let others know that there still a doctor out there who actually care about his patients.

I had good experience with doctor hartshorn. I had gone to many doctors in boston and many of them didn't take time with me or didn't care about me. Not only is he a good doctor but he is very nice. I like him a lot and you should go see him. He is the best in boston I think.

Probably the best doctor of any type that I have been to. And I am OLD! He has helped both me and my husband and we are very pleased.

I saw many shoulder docs before I came to see him and all of them said I needed shoulder replacement. I really didn't want one, and he that although maybe in the end I would end up with one there are "always options" which was nice to hear. We did three stem cell injections in my shoulder and I am not kidding you it feels great. Not sure how long it will last but it was nice to see a doctor that didn't want to cut first.
