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 was great, he quickly explained what he thought was causing my problem and the next steps to take to figure that out so we could have an appropriate plan of action.

Reviewed on May 03, 2019

It is always a bit uneasy to switch providers but after mine left, I decided to see Dr. Hartz since the rest of my family was already seeing him as a PCP. I'm glad I did and am now established. He left me feeling very confident in my decision and happy to know he is there.

Reviewed on May 02, 2019

Discussed my other medical conditions and how they would affect and/or impact any treatments he used i.e. injections and blood glucose levels.

Reviewed on May 02, 2019

Dr. Hartz and the resident working with him were both very nice and thoroughly concerned with the reason for my visit.

Reviewed on Apr 26, 2019

Dr. Hartz always asks if I have any other health issues on my mind before my visit is over.

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 12/20/2018, Dr. Hartz has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
