excellent

March 29, 2018

very friendly and easy to talk to

March 29, 2018

This was the first time that we have met or been seen by Dr. Scholtz. He was very friendly and kind and his light-hearted personality put both patient and mom at ease. The same should be said for the nurse who assisted him. I would definitely seek him out should we have future need. Also, we were scheduled on half a days notice and did not have to wait once we arrived. Turned a dreaded situation into no big deal.

He put my concerns at ease and helped to answer any questions that I had.

Dr Scholz was extremely professional. He explained the procedure thoroughly, listened to our questions, and answered everything in a manner that was easy to understand. He was amazing with our very frightened daughter and was able to ease her fears a bit as well as ease our minds. I would recommend Dr Scholz to anyone!

Dr. Scholz and his staff have gone above and beyond for my son's care. All were very attentive to his pain management during the hospital stay and gave very clear direction on home bound instruction once released.
