Dr Goitz seems like a great surgeon. But I am having a hard time relating to him on my post op care. I am doing everything he ask , and not getting the results , he just keeps saying lay on your elbow. That does not help! A previuos visit we talked about cleaning up scar tissue in 6 months, now he says wait 1 yr. He must have been busy and did not review my chart, he asked me for my range of motion numbers from PT. I did not know them. I am thankful the surgery went well, and my scar has healed wonderfully. But this limited ROM is NOT good! The fx elbow has drastically impacted my life. It has also effects my hand wrist and shoulder. Not sure if he can relate to that. I am super bummed when I leave his office.

Dr. Goitz is an excellent hand specialist. He knew exactly what was wrong and gave me the proper care that I needed to feel better and out of pain. He was also extremely friendly and took his time and answered all questions and concerns that I had. I was so impressed that I referenced him to my mother, which will need carpal tunnel surgery in the near future.

Dr. Goitz made sure my questions were answered to my satisfaction. He is a true professional and I very much appreciated the care he provided.

very very good my visited was what i expected

June 20, 2018

Dr. Goitz is a top notch orthopedic surgeon and Pittsburgh is fortunate to have him. He has performed surgery on my hands with great success and has given me advice on my shoulders and I last saw him for his opinion on a recent surgery I had from an accident in Florida.

Very happy with my experience with Dr.Goitz and his team, very reassuring and kind.

June 18, 2018

I was very surprised at the level of courtesy from the first step in the door, throughout the visit to the end. I was impressed by the care and empathy shown by the entire office from the receptionist to the assistant to the doctor and of course Dr. Goitz.
