Meet Dr. Hartle

Heading to work, going for a run, even hitting the town for a burger and fries–there are so many activities that make Dr. Hartle light up, and, lucky for her, all of them are a part of what makes the RVA community so appealing. It’s a good thing she settled here with her family, not just for her sake and interest in enjoying all of the above but for her patients’ too! Just ask, and they’ll tell you how happy they are to have her as a part of the VPFW family.

Maybe it’s the inspiration she draws from her family or those post-workout endorphins, but Dr. Hartle is known for her dedication to helping her patients live happier healthier lives. She strives to connect with them and to offer a safe, private environment in which to have important and often nerve-racking conversations.

“I have been going to VPFW with Dr. Hartle for years and I couldn’t imagine a better experience. From the friendly office staff to the “stirrup-side” manner of Dr. Hartle they really do make this as enjoyable as possible. Dr. Hartle is so thorough in her explanation of things whether it is a test or other options. I look forward to staying with VPFW and Dr. Hartle for many years to come!” – Chelsea G.
