Douglas Hartzler, MD


My initial exposure to medicine was the result of my dad being a family doctor in a small Minnesota town. Entering college, I pursued being a doctor or wildlife manager and medicine won out. While in medical school, my technical skills directed me to a surgical specialty. I worked with an orthopedic surgeon who drove my choice of specialty. I came to Phoenix for my residency with the intent of returning to Minnesota to practice medicine, but met my future wife while I was here. She did clinical research at St Joseph’s Hospital as a nurse and later completed law school prior to our marriage. We stayed in Phoenix and raised our 5 children.
