" I have gone to Dr. Hartman for close to 40 years. He is known to be one of the best dermatologists in the San Fernando Valley. He explains everything, gives you an education,diagnose problems and treat conditions so quickly with the knowledge he has in this field. If you need an appointment, plan to wait 2 months because he is so busy and respected. I still use some of the creams he recommended for me some 30 years ago being a patient with lupus and sensitive skin. He specializes in adult and pediatric dermatology. He is one of my favorites if I do have to have a doctor appointment. Susan I "

 Leon U. - 10/25/2017

" I really appreciated the doctor fitting me into his very busy schedule since I was urged by my cardiologist to seek immediate attention by my dermatologist. Although Dr. Hartman had a busy day and was preparing to leave for a meeting out of town, he did spend the time to thoroughly view and discuss my concerns and offer a diagnoses with suggestions on how to alleviate the situation. My thank you also goes to the office phone receptionist in helping to facilitate my last minute emergency appointment. Thank you all. "

 Edward H. - 10/23/2017

" The doctor was very thorough amd informative as well as personable, but his interaction with me lacked ‘closure’, by which I mean to say, he didn’t even mention when he wanted to see me again. He simply disappeared into his next patient. I’m not offended or even bothered but I thought it would be worth it for us both to end the visit a little more succinctly. Thanks for listening. "

 Cathleen T. - 10/22/2017

" Dr Hartman is one of the smartest & most caring doctors in USA! Both my mother & I have been patients...his expertise lengthened her life & now mine. There is no question you cannot ask him. I look forward to every appt w confidence! "

 Michael W. - 10/20/2017

" Takes too long to get an appointment. Perhaps this speaks to the popularity of Dr Hartman. "

 Keith M. - 10/20/2017

" I am a big fan of Dr. Hartman. I think he is professional, informative and administers excellent care. That said, I had to wait 45 minutes in the waiting room and another 15 minutes in the exam room to see him for 10 minutes. If the doctor is running late (which I understand completely) the office must notify patients either before they arrive or minimally when they arrive of the situation. Not saying anything is unacceptable and frankly, rude. My time is as valuable as anyone else's; this is simply basic manners and common courtesy. Whomever is running the office needs to review patient arrival procedures so that patients are informed and can make plans accordingly. "

 Claudia S. - 10/15/2017

" Dr Hartman is a good Dr and everything on his side is great but the office staff is and always have been unbelievably rude. They act as if you are bothering them. I don't understand why such a good Dr would allow his office staff to conduct themselves in this way. There are so many happy, friendly young people you could hire Dr Hartman, please change your office staff and do yourself a favor. That girl Nicki, she's only making your practice look bad. Hope you take this advice seriously and consider it. I'm not the only one who thinks this. Go look at your YELP reviews! "

 Mercedes G. - 10/12/2017

" Dr. Hartman was highly recommended by both my husband and a good friend of mine who had come to him. They were highly impressed by his knowledge and demeanor, and he did not disappoint! I am so glad to know he is there. And I will come back for my follow up appointment in December. Thanks, Dr. Hartman and staff for the excellent service. Mercedes "Mercy" Glatt "

" I've been to several dermo's and Dr. Hartman is the best!! If he sees something that is questionable - he will explain what it looks to him and take care of it. Freeze it, cut it off and send it to the lab for analysis and send the results within 3 days. He is extremely knowledgeable and explains things so that a normal person like me can understand. Dr. Hartman is the best! "
