Every time I go for an appointment at Dr. Baratz office or even make a phone call I'm treated with the most respect and kindness I have ever been treated in my whole life. It throws you back a little and makes you a little emotional that there are still people like this out there in the world today.

August 20, 2018

Pleased with my visit. Understood instructions. Given splints and exercises in office which was convenient.

August 20, 2018

Dr.Baratz was extremely kind and respectful. he took the time to explain everything related to my surgery. I find that this is rare amongst health care providers anymore.

August 15, 2018

I am a Registered Nurse. I Was amazed at how courteous and professional every staff member was. I honestly have not been treated like this anywhere else I've had appointments with in the past.

August 13, 2018

45 minute to 60 minute wait to see MD.

August 13, 2018

The Physician Assistant was very knowledgeable and listed to exactly what I had to say about my condition. Dr. Baratz was extremely kind and understanding about what I have been going through. He gave a thorough explanation of my problem and the reasons why he chose the first remedy in the process. He further explained if the first course of action did not work, what steps/procedures would be taken. Very efficient!

Dr. Baratz, his PA. Dave, the staff and the woman who fitted my brace were all fantastic. The best experience I've had to date with a specialist.

August 06, 2018

Very good experience!

This was a post op appointment. My appointment was scheduled for 9:15, I arrived at 9:05. Was not called back to exam room until 10:00. Met with nurse, PA and finally Dr. Baratz. Dr. spent approximately 2 minutes with me, wants to follow up again in 8 weeks.
