5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

27 Years Old, Small Stubborn Lower Abdominal Fat - Chico, CA

Dr. Hartman has now done 2 procedures for me; first my cool sculpting, and just recently a small breast augmentation. I can't say enough great things about her and her staff. These were my first cosmetic procedures and I just couldn't be happier. If anything comes up in the future that I want to have done, I will only tryst Dr. Hartman as my MD!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

27 Years Old, Athletic Small Frame, Small Augmentation

Dr. Hartman is great! I couldn't imagine having this surgery done by anyone else. She listened to what I wanted and respected my body. I had my initial consult and was able to get into surgery very quickly after (as I was on a time crunch due to work). I had minimal bruising and my incisions are so small and precise.She even sent me flowers the day after... What more could you ask for? A++ surgeon!

Very Happy with Dr Hartmann and Results - Chico, CA

Again, I am very impressed and happy with Dr. Hartmann. The initial consultation went very well; she was informative, knowledgeable, and patient. I felt she was truly interested in my needs and how to achieve the best results for me. She has a caring and gentle way about her, giving the patient confidence in both the procedure and in her.

Great Doctor and Staff - Chico, CA

Dr. Hartmann is kind and easy to talk to. She did great work. Would not let me talk her into doing things the fast way to get it done, she made me do it the right way :) and it was well worth it. I was very scared and had alot of second thoughts about thing but Dr. Hartmann was there the whole time for me along the way. Would recommend her to anyone in my family.
