" My only comment is I wasn’t finished asking questions and/or getting referrals from MD before he left room. I had no indication the appt was over and I had came out to ask staff. The prescriptions discussed with MD was not available as he didn’t write them. Md addressed my issues and explained each item of concern, however he left the room abruptly and I still had a few more questions. I will refer him. The staff was great. "

" I would have rated this office "Excellent" in every category. However, with the present staff, very hard to make, cancel, or reschedule an appointment because no one answers the phones. Same with emergency visits; no one answers the phone. Only medical office where I have experienced that no one answers the doctor's phones. You have to leave a message and wait for them to call you back. Moreover, a couple of times, no one called me back. So, I had to call and leave another message. I find it hard to believe that this office or any doctor's office is so busy that the doctor's phones cannot be answered by the staff in a reasonable amount of time. Once you're in the office everything is fine. Trying to make, cancel or reschedule an appointment to see the doctor is a nightmare. "

I just wish his receptionists would be a little more friendly. "
" Thank you for getting my husband in too with me. "
" The reason there is a wait to schedule and appointment is that Dr. Hartman really is that good. I've been seeing him for years, initially on the recommendation of another Dr. and he is knowledgeable, practical and very focused on addressing the cause of the visit quickly. Even if you have a wait a little bit on your scheduled time, its worth it, and when he gets to you, you'll understand that if he is behind schedule it is because he takes the time to interact and spend time with patients. In my experience its easily worth the wait when you know its because of the personalized interaction. "

I do wish I had found him much sooner as I wasted time and money seeing others dermatologists who did not offer the knowledge and level of care found here. "

We are usually very shrewd with our medical care - only go to UCLA Medical Center to find the top docs - but Dr. Hartman fits the bill, a true gem of a quality doctor's office in Encino that delivers results and is very much worth the wait. "
" I do not do recommendation. "
" Dr. Hartman's staff is wonderful....kind, helpful a pleasure to deal with.....But.....the main attraction is Dr. Hartman himself. He is kind, gentle patient, explains your problem to you and explains the care he feel you need to cure your condition and make you more comfortable. Unfortunately he is so wonderful that getting an appointment with him takes some doing, but he is definitely worth waiting for. He's one of a kind! "

" Dr. Hartman is always patient with questions and incredibly informative with his answers. Always get in and out relatively quickly. "
" It is near impossible to get appointment with this fabulous doctor. We adore him.long long wait to get in. He is a wonderful clinician but not great about returning phone calls or picking up the Phone ever. Makes communication very very difficult. We have been with him for a long time and he's been right on every diagnosis but to wait three months to see him is very difficult. "
" Love this doctor "
" It takes a while to get an appointment with Dr. Hartman, but it is worth the wait. Dr Hartman is the best doctor and takes his time with each patient. Always professional, knowledgeable, kind and courteous and I feel greatly relieved after seeing him. "
" Dr. Hartman and his staff are everything you could want from your dermatologist and I believe I am a very good judge as I had gone to 5 dermatologists before finding Dr. Hartman. Look no further if you are seeking a knowledgeable concerned physician! "

" I was in the waiting room for 55 minutes before seeing the doctor. Way too long! "
" I have no problem with Dr. Hartman, however sometimes I find that the people I speak to on the phone come across as if I am bothering them. When this happens, I must say that I find it offensive. Also, the phone message says that the office will return a phone call within 48 hours, and I get the fact that Dr. Hartman is very busy and sees many patients, but sometimes a week or more has gone by and no one returns my phone call. When I call back, I again feel like I am burdening them. My family and I have been coming to Dr. Hartman for years, and we love him. He is the best. But, when you feel the attitude of his office staff coming through the phone, like you are bothering them, it is offensive to me as a person.. "

" Great Doctor "
" most professional, caring, competent, pleasant office environment and gracious staff. "
" Dr. Robert Hartman is a "Model Doctor" that all other doctors should be envious of him and must try t copy him. His soft spoken gentle, yet assured demeanor puts you at rest and assures you of a correct diagnosis and the perfect remedy for it. The time that he takes to explain the issue in layman's terms is incredible and extraordinary. His focus is the patient and not the insurance, deductible, or how much he makes. When you go to his office, you really see a true doctor and not a businessman turned doctor. Yet, he makes sure to administer the type medicine that wont put a hole in your wallet. In my book, he is "Doctor of all Doctors". My he remain healthy so we can benefit from his being. "
" Hard to get appointment on timely manner and waiting to see the doctor in waiting room is about 45 mins. to 1 hour. "

" On top of being friendly, very informative and with the ability to make a patient comfortable, his knowledge and diagnostic abilities is incredible. The very best Dermatologist I've ever been to. "
" the best "
" I figure if a poor comes up, you will pay attention. Dr. Hartman is the best. Has all of the attributes: knowledge and communication skills. However, I find it very difficult to secure an appt. when I think it is more than necessary. If you could let me know how to address the staff re: specific concerns, it would be helpful. If it is simply that Dr. Hartman has too many patients, why would I recommend others to have the same difficulty making appts. "
" An excellent experience in every way. TR "
" Dr Hartman is the best! "
" Really appreciate the woman (in gloves) who helped me check out. witty and helpful "
" I have gone to Dr. Hartman for close to 40 years. He is known to be one of the best dermatologists in the San Fernando Valley. He explains everything, gives you an education,diagnose problems and treat conditions so quickly with the knowledge he has in this field. If you need an appointment, plan to wait 2 months because he is so busy and respected. I still use some of the creams he recommended for me some 30 years ago being a patient with lupus and sensitive skin. He specializes in adult and pediatric dermatology. He is one of my favorites if I do have to have a doctor appointment. Susan I "

" I like the instruction that DrH shares so that my husband and I can help watch each other’s skin. He is a great Dr. and has been for decades. "
" I really appreciated the doctor fitting me into his very busy schedule since I was urged by my cardiologist to seek immediate attention by my dermatologist. Although Dr. Hartman had a busy day and was preparing to leave for a meeting out of town, he did spend the time to thoroughly view and discuss my concerns and offer a diagnoses with suggestions on how to alleviate the situation. My thank you also goes to the office phone receptionist in helping to facilitate my last minute emergency appointment. Thank you all. "
" The doctor was very thorough amd informative as well as personable, but his interaction with me lacked ‘closure’, by which I mean to say, he didn’t even mention when he wanted to see me again. He simply disappeared into his next patient. I’m not offended or even bothered but I thought it would be worth it for us both to end the visit a little more succinctly. Thanks for listening. "
" Dr Hartman is one of the smartest & most caring doctors in USA! Both my mother & I have been patients...his expertise lengthened her life & now mine. There is no question you cannot ask him. I look forward to every appt w confidence! "
" Takes too long to get an appointment. Perhaps this speaks to the popularity of Dr Hartman. "
" I am a big fan of Dr. Hartman. I think he is professional, informative and administers excellent care. That said, I had to wait 45 minutes in the waiting room and another 15 minutes in the exam room to see him for 10 minutes. If the doctor is running late (which I understand completely) the office must notify patients either before they arrive or minimally when they arrive of the situation. Not saying anything is unacceptable and frankly, rude. My time is as valuable as anyone else's; this is simply basic manners and common courtesy. Whomever is running the office needs to review patient arrival procedures so that patients are informed and can make plans accordingly. "
" Dr Hartman is a good Dr and everything on his side is great but the office staff is and always have been unbelievably rude. They act as if you are bothering them. I don't understand why such a good Dr would allow his office staff to conduct themselves in this way. There are so many happy, friendly young people you could hire Dr Hartman, please change your office staff and do yourself a favor. That girl Nicki, she's only making your practice look bad. Hope you take this advice seriously and consider it. I'm not the only one who thinks this. Go look at your YELP reviews! "
" Dr. Hartman was highly recommended by both my husband and a good friend of mine who had come to him. They were highly impressed by his knowledge and demeanor, and he did not disappoint! I am so glad to know he is there. And I will come back for my follow up appointment in December. Thanks, Dr. Hartman and staff for the excellent service. Mercedes "Mercy" Glatt "

" I've been to several dermo's and Dr. Hartman is the best!! If he sees something that is questionable - he will explain what it looks to him and take care of it. Freeze it, cut it off and send it to the lab for analysis and send the results within 3 days. He is extremely knowledgeable and explains things so that a normal person like me can understand. Dr. Hartman is the best! "
