Dr. Scholz was awesome, he was kind, knowledgeable, wonderful bedside manner. My daughter was in excruciating pain and Dr. Scholz relieved her of her pain and talked to he the entire time while preforming the procedure. I am also a UPMC health provider at Presbyterian Hospital, I have to say I felt comfortable and got excellent care from Dr. Scholz and his staff. Please give him the feedback that he is doing an AWESOME job and we should have more doctors like him!!!

Dr. Sholtz continues to be amazing.my son is 20 and I want him to continue to see Dr. Shultz forever due to his complex history.

August 30, 2018

My son has been a patient of Dr. Scholz since he was born and as always he has been absolutely the best medical professional I have ever dealt with. He is direct with what his plan is and what he thinks is the best option, he does not dance around questions which is very appreciated, and always goes above and beyond for us. the nurse was not around to take us over and get the next surgery scheduled so he personally strolled my son over with me to handle this.

August 17, 2018

very friendly and easy to talk to

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.
