About Me

I 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.

I also hold the following academic title:

    Dr. Hartz is very knowledgeable and knew what was wrong after a few minutes of manipulating my arm what I needed and explained things very clearly. He is very good.

    Dr Hartz does a great job with knowing my history. He does a good job building rapport asking questions about how my children are doing with their sports pursuits and such. Very good job methodically running down ordering test for any condition that crops up. Let's me know next steps and is very clear in his communications. He is very quick to review test results and add any follow up comments and has exceeded my expectations in responding to messages sent via My Chart. Typically responding within a few hours when I would expect 24 hour turnaround.
