Specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

Great doctor!

for 10 years other hospitals kept me on palliative ongoing care (meant to further hospital profits) Dr. Hartwell researched and offered me permanent treatment that ended decades long "care" by other hospitals eventually curing me of a debilitating disease. And his bedside manner is pleasant

Colonoscopy

This is my second colonoscopy by Dr. Hartwell. I appreciate how much time he tajes with me to understand my issues and make sure I understood what will happen. I really appreciated that I received a five year follow up reminder.
