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!!!!
Dr. Sholtz is an amazing physician in all respects.
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
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.
