David Hartman, MD, FACS
Fine Arts Skin & Laser exists today because of a unique blend of experiences and events in the life of Dr. David Hartman. He received his undergraduate degree from Ohio University, graduating with high honors – Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and the National Dean’s List. He was one of two college students in the state that year to receive the Governor’s Award for Exceptional Volunteer Service. Nearly a decade in New York City and Los Angeles found David acting in commercials, film and daytime television, earning his membership in the Screen Actors Guild. During that time, he also built exquisite pieces of furniture for top producers, directors and actors in Hollywood. These experiences honed David’s ability to work with his hands, and also developed his eye for beauty and detail. Following his father’s terminal battle with cancer, David turned to the medical field as he was inspired by the empathy he saw modeled by his father’s medical team. He earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, graduating in the medical honor society: Alpha Omega Alpha, and Magna Cum Laude. He then completed his Residency training in Manhattan at the New York Eye & Ear Infirmary. Dr. Hartman is Board Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. Professional memberships include: American College of Surgeons, American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, and American Medical Association.
When he is not practicing medicine, Dr. Hartman enjoys spending time with his wife, Melissa, and two children, Lucy and Jonas. David’s hobbies include working on their small farm of orchard trees, fish pond and hiking trails. Four dogs, a cat, “Gus” the goat and a miniature horse named “Farmer” keep things lively. He also enjoys performing in comedy skits at his church, furniture making, and restoring old oil paintings – his office is a gallery of his painting restorations – see some examples below:
