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:

very friendly and listened to what I was asking

Always great care. I have never felt like he doesn't understand what I am saying, even if I am not able to communicate effectively. He is able to handle my complex case, and help me to work with many specialists, never making me feel like a burden or annoying like my previous provider did. I only wish that he was in the office more, but I went into his care aware of his limitations on that- it was made clear for me which was great.

It is always wonderful to see Dr. Hartz and his staff. He takes the time to answer my questions, as silly as they might sound, and he makes sure that I always follow-up. It seems like he truly wants what is best for me as his patient.
