I received a shot in my left shoulder that I barely felt. Twenty years ago when I received a similar shot it was very painful. Dr Baratz was excellent. The day of the shot my shoulder was much improved. Today, the day after improvement is continuing.

August 14, 2019

Dr. Baratz is great, very thorough and always listens to my concerns, as well as answering all of my questions.

August 12, 2019

Dr Baratz and David (PA) were wonderful. They spent a lot of time examining my daughter, looking at the MRI. They took the time to answer any and all of our questions and thoroughly explained things to us which finally made sense as our previous provider did not. They were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. My daughter and I are extremely pleased with them. We cannot thank them enough.

August 07, 2019

Excellent doctor! He really took his time, listened to me, explained things to me, and asked many questions. He was very through, took his time, friendly and knowledgable.

August 07, 2019

Dr. Baratz is very nice and a good doctor. I've been seeing him for over 25 years. He takes the time to listen to you and is very caring.

August 05, 2019

Dr. Baratz was very friendly and knew what my problem was with my hand. I felt very comfortable with how he examined my hand and knew how to treat it. He put an injection in my hand and I only felt a little pinch. I would definitely to back to him.

July 29, 2019

Great doctor! I appreciated hands-on treatment. The PA and Doctor both examined my injury thoroughly before making any diagnosis.

July 29, 2019

Love Dr. Baratz. sometimes he seems overwhelmed with the teaching of students, residents, etc. He still gives you time and answers questions-and interjects humor, too!

July 24, 2019

bad: 1 hour wait and another patient decided to bring their obnoxious 3 and 4 year old children in ....GOOD: I loved the doctor and the treatment I received

July 22, 2019

The only thing I didn't care for with this appointment was I wasn't seen till 4:00 my appointment was at 2:30
