My name is Dr. Brian Hartman, a family physician and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
I fell into this field when I was assigned to a breastfeeding clinic as my primary training site in medical residency. This was a true blessing, as I have loved every moment working alongside individuals or couples and their newborns in their breastfeeding adventures. There is no greater satisfaction than helping a baby grow and aiding an individual in this particular field!
Many of my patients have expressed their appreciation for having a male lactation consultant and physician, as I approach each case without bias. This allows me to treat every patient equally and therefore, fully engage myself in their breastfeeding journey!
Aside from breastfeeding and lactation medicine, I enjoy spending time watching movies, going on hikes, walking other people's dogs and finding the best chicken wings on the market.
