the doctor was upset because he was not the doctor that performed my daughters surgery but he was the doctor that we made this appointment with. his words "I find it funny that you scheduled an appointment with me but you had another doctor perform her surgery ". I was very upset that these were his first words to us. it seemed more about his ego than my daughters medical issue. very unprofessional in my opinion.

I would recommend Dr. Scholz. He was not running late in his schedule, we did not wait long in the exam room for him. He was polite and easy to understand while he explained clearly and patiently on my child's condition. This is one survey that I'm happy to complete.

This is our favorite doctor out of all the doctors my daughter has. He's extremely personable, professional, and knowledgeable. We are so pleased he was our daughter's surgeon.

son diagnosed with rare lung malformation.staff and dr Scholz very compassionate. had to wait a week to schedule surgery bc he was away on conference. I know this is a necessary part of medical training and out of schedulers control but wish we could have scheduled sooner as my husband and I are very anxious regarding this.Upmc arranged his imaging and office appt and everyone was wonderful during this experience. thank you for making this whole ordeal easier by setting up appts for us

Dr. Schultz has taken tremendous care of my son for the past year. Not only is he an extremely talented surgeon he is patient and caring. I highly recommend him to anyone who's child may need this type of procedure. We consider our family lucky that he was on call when out son ended up in the hospital.

Dr. Scholtz is an incredible provider. he sat down with us, played with my son to make him more comfortable, listened to everything I had to say, and discussed the plan completely. he knew my sons history before coming in the room and didn't even touch the computer to chart but made full eye contact with us and engaged the whole time.

Dr. Scholz is absolutely amazing. he showed genuine care about my son
