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.
This is our favorite doctor out of all the doctors my daughter has. He's extremely personable, professional, and knowledgeable. We are so pleased he was our daughter's surgeon.
son diagnosed with rare lung malformation.staff and dr Scholz very compassionate. had to wait a week to schedule surgery bc he was away on conference. I know this is a necessary part of medical training and out of schedulers control but wish we could have scheduled sooner as my husband and I are very anxious regarding this.Upmc arranged his imaging and office appt and everyone was wonderful during this experience. thank you for making this whole ordeal easier by setting up appts for us
Dr. Schultz has taken tremendous care of my son for the past year. Not only is he an extremely talented surgeon he is patient and caring. I highly recommend him to anyone who's child may need this type of procedure. We consider our family lucky that he was on call when out son ended up in the hospital.
Dr. Scholtz is one of the best clinicians we have worked with. he listens, takes his time to understand our concerns and answers our questions. we feel lucky to have our child in his care.
excelent services! thanks!!!
Great. Dr. Scholz is awesome
Dr. Scholtz is an incredible provider. he sat down with us, played with my son to make him more comfortable, listened to everything I had to say, and discussed the plan completely. he knew my sons history before coming in the room and didn't even touch the computer to chart but made full eye contact with us and engaged the whole time.
Dr. Scholz is absolutely amazing. he showed genuine care about my son
Dr. Scholz was excellent!
Our daughter has multiple doctors but Dr. Sholtz is by far our favorite. He is kind, competent, and very professional. He always listens, is never condescending (as some Dr.s have been) and always makes us feel at ease. My husband and I have both said how lucky we are that he is our daughters surgeon.
We are always amazed at the exceptional care we have received from Dr Scholz and his team. They are top notch and we are so lucky to have been treated by them. Our questions and concerns are ALWAYS top priority and answered right away. We have never felt rushed or a inconvenience. We have since transferred our remaining children care to CHOP. (and we live 2 hours away) We couldn't be happier with the care we experienced. Our family finally after 10 long months feels like we can breathe thanks to this team.
They did call to say the doctor would be late due to being in surgery that morning. Great doctor.
Everyone was great
I could not say enough about Dr. Scholz. He is a amazing doctor that has ALWAYS gone above and beyond for not just our daughter but our family. His skill and attention to detail are just a few of the things that make him great. He has greatly improved my daughters quality of life and we will forever be grateful.
Physician was very friendly and considerate of both me and my child. Would refer friends and family,
All very good.
By far the best Dr and staff.
We loved Dr. Scholz! He was so kind and to a ton of time with us! We did not feel rushed at all! 5 stars for him thats for sure!
Dr. Sholtz put my son at ease and took time to answer all questions and concerns. Never felt rushed.
