amazed at flow of check in procedures to time I saw MD. very smooth, I did not have to wait long at all. very organized
The nurses were great, the physician was the problem especially for someone treating children. He was abrupt, rude, didn't listen or treat myself or my child with respect. He literally said over and over, "I don't care."
Dr. Bosch was very efficient and succinct.
This was a follow up appt for a re check on his broken clavicle. Therefore they would not have had my child's full medical records. We had a great experience at this facility. Everyone was very pleasant, and our total time there was under an hour. very impressed
He was very well spoken and helpful.
The only part of the appointment that I didn't appreciate was that Dr. Bosch kept saying, "Don't over think it." Not a very sensitive phrase to tell a concerned parent. Made me feel like I was just being a paranoid, over-concerned parent rather than listening to my concern and showing some level of understanding for my concern, even if his foot was fine - which was good news!
We could not have asked for more competent or compassionate care. We are grateful that Dr Bosch and his staff have taken care of our daughter.
The doctor wasn't doing a great job of making my daughter and I feel better about our situation. He was very abrupt and straight with us and not giving us much hope that my daughter will get better.
Dr. Bosch seemed annoyed or frustrated by having to see my child. Maybe he was having a bad day, but I didn't bring my child to the doctor for no good reason. We live very far from his office and needed to make this appointment before the beginning of school. His office was the only one available. We traveled 40 minutes to see him only to have him say he was the wrong person to see. I am very understanding of individual situations, as I work in social services, and I know things out of my control can happen. I believed I was very honest and forward about what my child needed with everyone before this appointment was made. Our situation should have been known and dealt with before coming to his office. Since we did see him in his office he should have shown more respect for my child by not treating us as an annoyance.
wait time was over 30 minutes
I would not see Dr. Bosch again. He is probably a very good doctor, but had no bed side manner for children. He was very matter-of-fact and did not show much interest in my child or what I had to say regarding his foot. It was as if we werr wasting his time. The other staff was excellent!
Dr Bosch was very short with my child. He was in and out of the room very fast. I was still asking the Dr questions and concerns about my child and the Dr was opening the door and in the hallway as I still had questions. Was not professional.
Foe working with pediatrics, i dis not feel that doctor was warm or welcoming. he seemed in a hurry. He was very short and quick with his words. i had to interupt him in order to speek.
The office was very quick did not have to wait long time in weighting room. the Dr. answered all questions and everything went well.
very good at what he does and very professional-he could take the time to explain things more thoroughly but he does his job and that's all I can ask for
Dr Bosch is an outstanding doctor and makes the parent and child comfortable and feel good about the diagnosis. He has great bedside manners. I would recommend him for any orthopedic issues.
Dr. Bosch provided a great experience in taking care of my son's broken bone. He explained what needed to be done to help him heal, and took the time to answer all of our questions.
Provider rushed through the appointment. I wouldn't choose this provider again for my child. We did appreciate getting in to see the provider on a day's notice.
The staff was terrific and very timely.
very efficient and an excellent surgeon and prompt to reply
Dr Bosch is an excellent physician and I would recommend him to anyone that needs surgery
Dr. Bosch speaks in terms that I can understand and explains and re-explains patiently, if necessary. I have a lot of respect for him.
Doctor sat and talked with us and answered all of our questions at length. This has helped us clarify whether or not she should have surgery. Very important to have that level of attention to this matter.
we are very pleased with dr Bosch performing my daughters upcoming surgery!
The doctor and nurse were both exceptional.
I felt very rushed by the doctor. As I was asking questions I received very short answers both times we saw him as he was walking towards the door. my son had an accident and I needed the doctors time to explain any restrictions that he had or that could be lifted. I felt as if this should have been normal things that a doctor covers. the assistant had to leave the room and go get the doctor a second time so I could ask the rest of my questions. this left me very frustrated.
The experience was good. The doctor explained everything and suggested we see another doctor who specializes in the type of injury my son has.
The doctor was dismissive.
The visit was quick I was in and out of the office with in an hour
I was very disappointed with the time spent and overall quality of the examination regarding my son's condition. The examination of his head and neck was minimal and he dismissed my concerns and possible treatment options that did not involve surgery
we waited for Dr Bosch for an hour and a half, ridiculous! He then spent about 5 minutes with us, and ran out of the room basically, I still had many unanswered questions. extremely disappointing experience!
I could not believe that I called at 7am because my child had been injured in a hockey game in Detroit over the weekend and I was seeing the doctor by 8:50am the same day!!!
The staff are EXCELLENT! they are all so kind and the doctor explains information in a very understanding way. I'd recommend them to anyone!
Dr. Bosch is a very professional and excellent doctor. I would highly recommend him!
we were very happy with Dr Bosch and would highly recommend him to our friends.
Staff and doctors are very nice and polite always.
I appreciated Dr. Bosch's straightwardness and honesty.
Dr. Bosch is a wonderful surgeon. Our son's surgery was immediate and everything fast paced. During his follow up appointment we had many questions about the procedure done and following surgeries needed. Dr. Bosch took the time to answer all of our, and our son's questions, and answered them in ways our son could easily understand. Unlike many doctors, he spoke directly to our son and made him feel like he was there for him, and really took time to talk to him and ensure him that he would take good care of him.
Dr Bosch did not give us the opportunity to ask questions. He walked out as we tried to ask questions. We had concerns and he talked over us to tell us how to exit. we waited 55mins to have a 3 minute appointment with him.
Dr.Bosch is a very excellent doctor!
Very understanding when telling us about procedures.
The patient and parent both thought the Dr. was great. Staff was courteous and helpful. Wait time was zero, we were called in before we even got through check in.
Dr. Bosch was very respectful and knowledgeable.
They were all very quick and seemed to rush out
The appointment was at 1.00 p.m. We were there before the appointment time. After we were called in we went in the x-ray room and were waiting there till 2.00 p.m. This appointment was for a college kid who ended up missing up her next class.
We have never had to be referred to a specialist before. However, coming to children's we knew we would be in good hands. Then, meeting Dr. Bosch, we were more than comfortable and happy with him and his willingness to take care of our son. Even though the diagnosis turned out to be something different and nothing to worry about, I am so grateful that Dr. Bosch took his time to take care of our son. I thank Dr. Bosch and his staff for the wonderful care they gave to my son and our family. I am very thankful God blessed us with a wonderful doctor and God blessed him with his abilities. thank you to everyone involved in our care. We can't say enough good about all of you.
As a new patient, we were very happy with the time Dr. Bosch spent reviewing my son's issues and understanding our concerns...he was very attentive and communicated our options to us in clear way. He showed great "bedside manner" and connected easily with my son.
Very nice Doctor, very short wait time.
Dr. Bosch was excellent. his calming presence and quick actions helped put my daughter at ease when she was upset about her broken arm. so very grateful that he fixed herbup and is handling her care.
I hate and don't have time every time iwe come in to wait over an hour or two to see the doctor. I have a busy life.
we loved him and the practice.
I feel that the doctor is in and out way too fast. We sit sometimes over an hour to see them, then wait back in the room, and maybe spend, at best, 10 minutes with the doctor. He was even talking to us as he was walking out of the room, like he needed to move on...
We were very well taken care of.
DR. BOSCH IS A WONDERFUL DOCTOR. HE IS KIND, DOWN TO EARTH, VERY APPROACHABLE, EASY TO TALK TO AND VERY EASY TO UNDERSTAND. HE IS VERY GOOD WITH KIDS. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE I KNOW.
awesome doc! explained everything to us and sat down with us and showed us the X-ray which I totally appreciated! the staff was awesome as well they even gave my daughter a baby doll on the way out. we had an hour ride home so that was a god send! god bless this staff!!!
It was a great visit. The wait time was practically zero. Dr. Bosch was excellent as a physician, I only wish he wouldn't rush so much putting the parent some what in a stressful situation. I had to apologize a couple of times to slow him down and go through
The doctor should have listened to me more and given me a little credit for being somewhat intelligent.
I was pleased with my experience with Dr. Bosch. He effectively and efficiently talked through our concerns about our son. If there was anything I would say could be improved about our interaction was that he could've slowed down a little bit. Even though everything he talked about was clear it took me a few seconds to process everything.
Great, very knowledgeable and helpful.
I was not happy with doctor at all!!!
This was our 1st visit with this provider, but it was a good 1st experience. Hope it continues.
Dr. Bosch is one of the best doctors we've ever seen, maybe the single best. He is knowledgeable, is quick witted, and is a very good communicator and listener. If your child needs spinal care and you are not seeing Dr. Bosch in Pittsburgh, time to change doctors.
Dr. Bosch was very good as usual.
It would have been nice to have more than 5 minutes with the doctor. He seemed rushed.
The appointment felt rushed. I don't think all suggestions for helping my child deal with wearing a boot were given. I left & had many questions. I called & left a message the same afternoon and still haven't received a call back 3 days later. I also felt the proper care & use of the boot was not explained well.
All of our our experiences with Dr. Bosh have been beyond exceptional. We are truly pleased and thankful for his knowledge and skills. We will always recommend him to others and continue with him in our daughters care in the future. Dr. Bosh is the very best!
waited over an hour and a half to see doctor
Our Appointment was at 9:40 AM on 09/28/2016, we came to hospital by 9:20 AM because we don't want to wast other appointment or doctors time. But Doctor came at 10:40 AM. that was horrible. Doctor only spent 5 min, i am not sure because he was late and other patients waiting.. even he didn't hold my son legs carefully and watched. He didn't gave any suggestions... I drove to hospital almost 40 Min and spent around 2 hours before doctor comes, but doctor spent less than 5 min.. This is very unfair.
I was pleased with the facility, but not the provider.
All good. some things don't yet apply to our situation.
I work in the medical field with providers. This provider was definitely very knowledgeable but did not talk above either myself or my child. Provider was very good interacting with my child who has autism
We love Dr. Bosch. He found the problem with my son's knee after another doctor missed it. We are extremely happy with him.
Excellent care provider
our pediatrician sent us there to check my daughter. dr Bosch was direct, kind, comforting, and even made my daughter laugh. we left feeling confident with his diagnosis and further treatment. all the nurses, we saw 3, were all very friendly too!
they were always informative and patient with my son even when he was rude to they they took it in stride and didn't treat him any different.
Dr. Bosch listened to us, took the information we offered into consideration. Treated us (parents) as part of our child's health care team. That was very much appreciated.
felt we were rushed and forgot some questions and other questions not really answered or helpful
The visit went smoothly.
I really felt that the appt I had with Dr. Bosch could have went better, being a dr he should be more open to listening to the parent or parents of the child. I really feel he was rushing thru the appt with me. I just feel he needs to take the time to really listen to the parents more that way there the parents know they are being heard instead of feeling like I was not really heard at all. Because I do feel like I was not heard by him very much yesterday. He may know the medical side of things but I know my son and I know what goes on at home with him and how he is feeling if he is hurting etc. I am with him more than he is so I know what goes on, he does not. that is how dr's and children's parents touch base and listen to each other and come up with a plan that is best for the parents and the child.
The care provided when arriving and during the visit was great.
we never worry about having to WAIT to see the doctor because the office seems very efficient. Dr Bosch is very matter of fact, to the point with answers to questions but always answers questions and concerns completely.
Doctor seems rushed. talked very fast and never made eye contact with my child
Dr. Bosch was a fine provider... not the best physician we've ever encountered, and not the worst. We had very limited interaction with him. He seemed knowledgable and hurried. He lacked bedside manner, but he's an orthopedist so I suspected that would be true.
we waited 40 minutes after our appointment time to be called back into the room only to then be escorted to x-ray 10 minutes later. The doctor was very brief and short when he came in the room. We had some questions for him but he seem to be in a big hurry
Dr. Bosch is an amazing doctor! He is patient, positive, energetic, and listens well. Thank you!!
Dr. Bosch is excellent, knowledgeable and great with kids. Understands kids want to get back to playing sports after an injury, but realistic and straight forward in setting realistic goals.
the provider talked directly to my child instead of just to me which was wonderful. he made her understand what was going on with her injury.
most professional office. out appointment was behind. we were due at 4 pm were it seen until 4:30. I feel it was not the offices fault. patients who think the world revolvesaround them showing up late for their appointments most likely cause this sort of thing to happen. I do not hold it against the staff, doctors or office personnel in any way!
This office is always kind and understanding.
Doctor seemed rushed & visit was impersonal.
Everyone was did a great job. I have no complaints
Great job!!! My daughter and I both felt 100% satisfied!! Great all around job!!
The staff was polite and helpful we did not wait to be seen doctor took time out to explain results and what needs done.
Dr. Bosch is awesome! Speedy quick but very attentive.
It's great to meet a provider who has patient and willing to explain about my child condition with courtesy.
Dr. Bosch is a great doctor. I would highly recommend him to others in need.
I was very pleased with our visit. All staff were very polite.
He was very complete in his examination of the problem and explained our worries away.
This wasn't a typical visit usually...the doctor seem rushed. We drive 3.5 hours to get there and a little more time spent with us would go a long way. I would like to stay with Children's for our daughter's sports injuries, however, my husband doesn't feel the drive is worth it especially when our appointment is rushed.
The entire visit was great. Everyone from the staff to Dr. Bosch were friendly, prompt, thorough, and seemed to genuinely care about my child.
Excellent provider - visit was great, quick and he listened and responded to my son. Joked with him and made him feel comfortable.
Dr. Bosch is an excellent orthopedic specialist.
Conservative treatment which I am a proponent of regarding children particularly.
After a year of not getting adequate treatment in our hometown we went to Dr Bosch. He was wonderful throughout the last year taking care of my child, including surgery and following up until he was completely satisfied that he was totally healed. Wonderful treatment, awesome Doctor!!
I believe that Dr. Bosch is very knowledgeable and competent in orthopedics. He took the time to thoroughly do a history/assessment related to my daughters orthopedic problem. His plan of care seems appropriate. He also appears to be very caring and concerned for my daughter's well being. Most practitioners seem to have lost that touch.
Dr. Bosch is awesome!! I feel that my daughter is in great hands!!
I emailed Dr. Bosch after the apt (as my husband was present and assisted in completing this). Dr. Bosch, was very quick to respond, and very helpful. It was much appreciated.
