very happy with my total experience with Dr. Baratz and his staff. All are very professional and take time to explain any questions asked. Best group I've ever had. Thanks to all

June 22, 2018

I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Baratz. He was extremely courteous and knowledgable about my medical problem. He wasn't in a hurry to leave the exam room and answered all my questions. I found him on the Internet and I'm glad I did.

I liked the organization in this office. I saw the nurse first, then a fellow (who really explained my options of steroid shots or surgery and explained the effectiveness of both. I actually decided when talking to him that I wanted to try the steroids first. Then I saw the doctor who examined my hands and gave me the shots. Very satisfied with the experience. I hope it works.

I got a cortisone shot for my arm and arm/ exercises to do and was told to come back in 4 to 6 weeka if I needed to. The cortisone shot did not help my arm pain and I am beginning the exercises. There were several attendants from out of town present. I still do not understand exactly what is causing the pain. I had a 3:45 appt. and did not get out until 7 p.m. Everybody had gone home except the physical therapist so I got no printout that could clarify my condition. No follow up from their office.
