17/11/09 5 3 5 5 Dr Hartnick is one of the nicest,most professional Dr my husband and i have been in contact with the regards to our daughter. If it was not for him our daughter would have died, 5 weeks old he had to reconstruct her airway she had a tumor blocking 90 percent of her airway. She was only breathing at a 10 percent capacity. It was he who saved her life along with his amazing surgical team. Bravo Dr Hartnick. Thank you. GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!! PS the reason why i scored a 3 on punctuality is that he is so busy but he is very thorough. She is almost 2 know and doing excellent.

25/02/09 5 5 5 5 While there are many reviews here that speak to Dr. Hartnick's surgical abilities, what impressed us was his suggestion to forgo surgery (which other Drs. had recommended) until less invasive measures were first tried. We took his advice and they worked! Sometimes the best surgeon is the one who never cuts! We were very pleased and are grateful to Dr. Hartnick.  Respond

01/08/08 5 5 5 5 If not for Dr. Hartnick and his staff, it is very likely we could have lost our son, or had him trached for life. We are in awe of his talent and his way with scared to death parents. We will always be forever grateful.

03/04/07 4 5 5 The Best Pediatric ENT around.Scored him a 4 in punctuality because he is always so busy, but never rushes anyone. Great bed side manner and considered by many we have spoken to as one of the top 3 in the country in his field.
