Dr. Scholz is absolutely amazing. he showed genuine care about my son

May 31, 2016

Dr. Scholtz is an incredible provider. he sat down with us, played with my son to make him more comfortable, listened to everything I had to say, and discussed the plan completely. he knew my sons history before coming in the room and didn't even touch the computer to chart but made full eye contact with us and engaged the whole time.

Excellent Care

Dr. Scholz was excellent!

Our daughter has multiple doctors but Dr. Sholtz is by far our favorite. He is kind, competent, and very professional. He always listens, is never condescending (as some Dr.s have been) and always makes us feel at ease. My husband and I have both said how lucky we are that he is our daughters surgeon.

February 08, 2016

We are always amazed at the exceptional care we have received from Dr Scholz and his team. They are top notch and we are so lucky to have been treated by them. Our questions and concerns are ALWAYS top priority and answered right away. We have never felt rushed or a inconvenience. We have since transferred our remaining children care to CHOP. (and we live 2 hours away) We couldn't be happier with the care we experienced. Our family finally after 10 long months feels like we can breathe thanks to this team.

They did call to say the doctor would be late due to being in surgery that morning. Great doctor.
