Englewood, OH |
Dr. Hartel came highly recommended by my ophthalmologist for my surgery. My initial appointment was in 2015. His staff at that time was professional and personal. A year went by and after resubmitting my diagnosis to my Insurance company I was finally approved for surgery. This is were the story goes downhill. I called to schedule a date for surgery and after 8 months elapsed someone fron his office called. The back office is unprofessional, rude, extremely unorganized and incompetent. Don't use

Excellent mannered. Takes time to answer any and all questions. Always takes his time and never feel rushed by him. When I had an after office hour issue he came into the office to see me around 8pm at night after he finishes a surgery. Did an excellent job on my eye surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I was sent to see and that doctor made the appointment with Dr. Hartel because my field of vision had decreased about half of what it is suppose to be and had been. Dr. Hartel was excellent explaining what was happening with my eyes and eyelids. He told me what would happen if I did not have a particular surgery. It was successful and am able to have the field of vision I had in my twenties. He also checks on other situations with my eyes and the care of them. He answers my questions.
