dr. scholtz was very informative on our daughter's condition and explained the surgery very well. took the time to answer any questions we had.
Never rushed me, took his time to answer all my questions.
Other than waiting one hour past our appointment time, we were very pleased.
Doctor came in quickly, was not left waiting in exam room long like some offices. He was very kind and explained the plan of care well.
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!!!
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.
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.
he was very thorough with any and all questions we had. very respectful. favorite doctor we've seen by far.
appreciate Dr Scholz expertise. We feel confident in the care that he provides and the recommendations that he has made.
thre office wait was long as we went to wexford, we're usually go to the main hospital. we're still continue to go to the main hospital. we love him as our Dr./surgeon
the doctor was very kind and thorough
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.
He put my concerns at ease and helped to answer any questions that I had.
very professional and answered all questions that we had.
he is awesome and best provider.
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!
initial appointment. went well.
that was my first visit to this provider and it was smooth. Thank you!!
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.
Really liked Dr. Scholz
the doctor was very helpful and eased my mind on the condition of my baby.
Dr.Scholz was extremely helpful and kind during our visit; we couldn't have asked for anyone better.
Very Informative and Knowledgeable. Dr. Scholz was FANTASTIC with our son!!!!
My baby is 11 months, the Doctor did a great job making the baby feel comfortable. I would recommend him to any one i know
Dr. Sholtz is an amazing physician in all respects.
the doctor was upset because he was not the doctor that performed my daughters surgery but he was the doctor that we made this appointment with. his words "I find it funny that you scheduled an appointment with me but you had another doctor perform her surgery ". I was very upset that these were his first words to us. it seemed more about his ego than my daughters medical issue. very unprofessional in my opinion.
I would recommend Dr. Scholz. He was not running late in his schedule, we did not wait long in the exam room for him. He was polite and easy to understand while he explained clearly and patiently on my child's condition. This is one survey that I'm happy to complete.
