Dr. Hartman's office called me back after we left a message and immediately got me an appointment during a skin emergency! Even when things got worse over the weekend, Dr. Hartman took the time to call, text, and make sure he was providing the best care he possibly could. You will not regret putting yourself in Skin and Wellness Alabama's hands. Thank you again for all you guys did for me!

Dr. Hartman is the absolute best. I've been going to him for over 3 years. When I first started going to him my acne was so horrible I didn't even like to look into mirrors. I'd been to several other doctors before him and nothing seemed to work. Now because of Dr. Hartman I can look at myself and love myself and for that I'm forever grateful of him!
