Following an injury in high school, Jon Hartinger, D.O., was inspired by his family physician to enter the medical field. "I was interested in helping patients with a similar approach," he said. "Family medicine allows me to build relationships with patients and their families, while incorprating my interests in sports medicine and osteopathic manipulative medicine."
As a physician, Dr Hartinger believes his most important role is to work as a team with patients to improve their quality of life while avoiding treatment approaches that cause more harm than good.
After earning his medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, Calif., Dr. Hartinger completed a family medicine internship and residency with Family Medicine of Southwest Washington in Vancouver.
Dr. Hartinger was born and raised in the Portland-Vancouver area. In his free time, he volunteers with local high school and college athletics and also enjoys golfing, hiking, gardening and spending time with his wife and two children.
