About MeI specialize in primary care sports medicine. I enjoy treating the entire athlete/patient. I have a special emphasis in interventional and diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound.
I believe in providing each patient or athlete with individualized care. I want to help the patient be an active participant in his or her treatment. My goal for patients is to help them return to their sport as quickly and as safely as possible.
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I enjoy working with Ohio State’s athletic department as a team physician. I also enjoy teaching and interacting with fellows, residents and medical students.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors and with my wife and our two dogs.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 03/28/2017, Dr. Hartz has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
