Dr. Bartells has been my doctor for mor than 25 years. He took time to review test results with me, checked my chart to see what upcoming procedures I needed and front desk ladies got those tests and doctors appointments scheduled. He also listened to my concerns about upper respiratory/allergies, listened to my chest and prescribed a steroid shot which has helped.
