The front desk staff was exceptionally friendly, which is so nice. The professional staff were very professional, concerned, and very approachable and warm. It was a very good doctor's experience for me.
I had shoulder surgery with Dr. Goitz on Oct. 20. This was a follow up visit. Both in the recovery room on the day of surgery and during this visit (as well as on a phone call he returned to me) he has been informative, gracious and forthcoming about information relevant to my surgery and recovery. Hopefully, my shoulder surgery will prove successful following months of physical therapy.
excellent physician and staff
I really liked this dr & have total confidence in him.
I think Dr. Goitz and all his team members took awesome care of me and treated me with the utmost respect and care.
Dr. Goitz is excellent. His Physician's assistant is excellent as well. I have had contact with her the last time I was in to see the doctor and during surgery at that time.
W were very pleased with out visit to the new UPMC Sports Medicine Center. All of the staff were very kind and helpful throughout our visit. Dr. Goitz and his fellow were amazing. They pulled up my daughters X-Ray and even tok the time to draw pictures to give me a clear understanding of her injury. They both took time to address all of my concerns and were patient with my daughter despite her expressing pain during their exam.
Dr. Goitz and his team are excellent. All questions are answered, respect is always shown and I would recommend him to anyone who needed care with their upper extremities.

I found all of the staff to do a very good job as I finished the survey. The waiting time in the waiting room was lengthy but I feel that is to be expected due to other patients appointments and I feel that Dr. Goitz is a very good Dr. He diagnosed my problem with my hand asap and was accurate where other Drs. that saw me in the past didn't have a clue. I was very impressed with him. I know know the severity of my problem and my options. :D

Love Dr. Goitz--wouldn't go to anyone else for my carpal tunnel and trigger thumbs and fingers. Great Doc
The doc and PA were very clear about there not being anything to do to lessen or improve the OA in my hands, so however it goes, I'll manage it myself.
The wait was over 15 minutes but I completely understand and it was not a problem for me. Dr. Goitz and his associates took adequate time to understand what was going on and evaluated me. I appreciate that he has a diverse background and is so experienced.
The reception staff indicated this provider was running behind on appointments (the building had a fire drill while I was there) but were accurate in the delay time, which was very much appreciated. Everyone was great - provider thoughtful and thorough.
I have always had a very good experience with my surgeries done my Dr. Goitz and have recommended him to my friends and family.

I was very pleased with the entire staff, treatment and follow-up.
Only saw Goitz about 4 1/2 minutes, had to wait a week to see him about a broken arm/wrist. Did not show me x-rays, had to do it myself between resident and doc. Would have appreciated a little info about how the break heals and so forth. Folow-up time seems good.
The resident and attending physician were top notch.
It couldn't have been more efficient and professional.
First appointment with this Doctor but completely satisfied and happy he was recommended to me.
Have already recomended co workers

dr goitz and his staff are amazing!! :)
Excellent demeanor and attention. Very happy with experience.
Dr Goitz is my go to for anything orthopedic regarding my hands, arms and shoulders. He has seen me in the past for shoulder impingment and more recently for lipomas on both arms and arthritis in fingers. He is a very compassionate docter who listens intently when you speak to him, doesnt rush you and cares about your issues. I would and have recomended Dr Goitz to family and friends and even strangers I meet socially who have issues he can address.
STAFF AND DRS WERE VERY POLITE
ONE OF PITTSBURGHS BEST DOCTORS, THAT IS THE REASON I CHOSE HIM FOR MY PROBLEM.
Dr. Goitz is extremely thorough and an excellent surgeon. He has a very nice demeanor and patiently answered any questions I had.
