He enjoys being able to follow patients long term, as well as the wide variety of patients he gets to see. His specific interests within nephrology include kidney stones, electrolyte abnormalities, hypertension, and chronic kidney disease.
Dr. Hartley believes in providing his patients with the best information possible to improve and maintain their health. He has seen the impact education can have on patients and how it can help them work toward long-term outcomes.
