Excellent Care

March 14, 2016

Dr. Scholz was excellent!

February 18, 2016

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.

Everyone was great

December 10, 2015

I could not say enough about Dr. Scholz. He is a amazing doctor that has ALWAYS gone above and beyond for not just our daughter but our family. His skill and attention to detail are just a few of the things that make him great. He has greatly improved my daughters quality of life and we will forever be grateful.
