Pulmonary, Critical Care
I believe that interpersonal communication is the single most important thing in medicine.

Approach To Care

A doctor can have all of the medical knowledge they need, but if the patient isn’t heard, there is a limit to the quality of care a doctor can provide. Taking the right amount of time with each and every patient is very important to Dr. Hartz and one of the reasons he chose to practice at North Memorial Health.

He sees patients with complex, sometimes life-threatening problems. Often, the exact cause or disease is not easy to diagnose, and the problem may only become apparent over time and through careful testing, evaluation and reevaluation of the patient.

Dr. Hartz has an interest in the full range of pulmonary medicine, with a special interest in occupational respiratory exposures.
