Dr Hartwigson is great- she is so personable and takes the time to explain things well and answer any questions. She’s wonderful at answering my children’s many questions and curiosities as we go throughout the appt and is intentional to help them feel like they are an active part of their care and understand what’s going on.

I appreciated the thoroughness with which she looked into things during a regular check-up. I also love that Dr Dana addressed my 7 year old with questions for her to answer for herself about foods she likes and what she knows about safety. She also took the time to tell my daughter my answer to what I am most proud of about her. My daughter's face lit up with delight! She always looks forward to her doctor visit with Dr. Dana!

Dr. Hartwigsen is absolutely amazing. She truly takes her time to listen to us as parents, and engages our children in the conversation too. She always answers all of our questions and concerns. Example. The girls don’t like going to the drs, but our girls feel safe with her.

I feel like everyone from the doctor, to the nurse to the lab tech went above and beyond to make us make us try and feel better. Everyone was so positive, and also spoke in a manner to make us understand the issue and get us on the right path of recovery. The Dr.’s after summary note was so personal - we really appreciated the time she took to write us a note after our appt to follow up.

Dana was very knowledgeable, and very friendly with my husband and I and our teenager. I would definitely recommend her to people, and then the teaching that she touches on is great.

I always enjoy our appointments with Dr. Hartwigsen. She takes the times to explain things to me, answers all my questions, gives me time to ask questions, and more. She doesn't make appointments feel like transactions.

Good service. It was an emergency visit to Dr. Hartwigsen because our regular doc was unavailable. She took good care of my daughter’s needs and willing to go extra miles to show me steps and procedures I can provide for my daughter at home to ease pain.

Dr. Dana H. is always kind and compassionate, takes the time to listen to everything, and is very thorough. She does not want to miss anything in the care of her patients. As the mother of the patient I appreciated leaving the hospital with solid answers that were available and ‘what to do next’. Her nurse Melissa is always making my daughters comfortable with her interactions.
