We were made to wait in the waiting room almost 2 hours after our appointment was scheduled. If this doctor wasn't rated highly, I would be looking for a new doctor.

July 22, 2016

Everything was very prompt and timely which was greatly appreciated. All of the staff involved was very professional and courteous. The entire visit was way better than expected.

July 20, 2016

First visit ever with UPMC. The care was excellent.

July 20, 2016

I heard a lot of great things about Dr. Baratz and what he has done for patients. Now that my daughter had to see him, everything I heard was accurate. He is the kindest person I met and you can tell he cares.

Excellent Care

July 18, 2016

I had an excellent experience, overall. As a new patient, I expected to have to wait long for an appointment, but was seen relatively soon. Surgery was scheduled shortly thereafter.

July 18, 2016

I felt like I was in the room with Ortho surgeon for two minutes and was told to come back in a week; he asked me a question or two and when I answered honestly he didn't seem to get the impression that he believed me. I was very shocked at this and a little disappointed. I wasn't given much direction on what to do during the coming week except finish my medication and if my condition gets worse call emergency room etc. I did feel under duress as soon as the surgeon left room to speak with a sales rep to purchase a splint that was not needed for my condition. I hope this coming weeks follow up appointment goes a little better and I can get some relief from the pain that I expected during my first visit but was told to just wait and see how it goes

July 18, 2016

All staff seemed very nice. They were professional but approachable also. Very impressed with the speed in getting my appointment. My surgery could have been scheduled sooner had it not been for restraints with my insurance but even with that I am waiting just about 1 month, which works out fine.

Dr. Baratz is the Best!!
