I have met with Dr. Bosch several times now and have always been impressed with his knowledge, confidence, and efficiency during our visits.
Dr. Bosch was excellent from when we saw him in the Ortho Urgent Care to the follow-up appointment.
no bed side manners whatsoever. my daughter was diagnosed with scoliosis and he talked like she just has a cold. talked way to fast to understand
Always friendly but to the point. appointment is always quick but we never feel like we are being rushed through.
everyone was very nice and helpful. the doctor was great and answered all our questions
very helpful and right to the point with my child's situation. he was understanding about my son having adhd and was patient with him
Dr. Bousch was very to the point and answered our questions. I am fully confident in his ability to treat our daughter for her scoliosis. He will be performing her surgery in a couple of months.
all was good with the visit. as soon as I walked in the receptionist caught me and led me in the direction I needed to go for check in and the appointment had minimal wait times. doctor was quick and concise. we were in and out if there for my son's ortho follow up with all of the information we needed.
very impressed with the facility. Staff were friendly and helpful. Very quick process.
very pompous and hard to understand. was talked down to
Dr. Bosch always makes us feel welcomed and takes time to answer all questions and explain everything to us.
It was our first visit with Dr Bosch and I couldn't have asked for anyone better
Dr. Bosch has been phenomenal! both my child and I have felt very comfortable with the care provided and are beyond happy with the results. We would highly recommend him to everyone!
This was my first interaction with Dr. Bosch; we were referred by an ER doctor about a spot found on my daughter's knee xray. This is the worst experience I've had with a doctor, either for myself or for my children. I am very upset about how Dr. Bosch treated my daughter (age 9) and myself. He didn't talk to her except to ask her name and birthday at the beginning of the appointment. He then proceeded to talk about her as if she wasn't in the room. He didn't ask her any questions or explain things to her. When I tried to get my daughter to ask questions, she refused because she was intimidated by him. He actually got up and walked to the door and started to open it WHILE I was trying to ask my daughter if she understood what her injury was (osteochondritis dissecans) and what his recommendation of 3 months rest meant. He did not explain things as well as I would like and I felt that my questions were met with impatience to get out of the room. He poked his head out of the door (which had been open for a few minutes now as I still tried to continue to ask questions) to call to the receptionists that my daughter will need a form to excuse her from gym for 3 months. His attempt to joke about her red hair and angry face at the thought of no gym was rather insulting given how little care he seemed to show for her during the appointment. I left and tried to explain things to my daughter as best I could given the little information that I had. I called his office later that morning with more questions from the school (after talking to them about her restrictions on activity) and after 3 days have still not heard back from him or his assistant.
dr. bosh was amazing!
The visit felt rushed, x-rays were ordered and unnecessary, and lots of uncertainty in the answers provided. Will be seeking a 2nd opinion from AHN.
The whole experience was amazing, I was impressed
Dr Bosch was very friendly. He answered all of our questions. He did not rush. Very efficient office and Doctor.
The doctor was great and didn't make us wait long at all I would recommend him to anyone needing his service
we were taken earlier than our apt and very quickly. I felt like the time with the doctor was rushed but we determine the treatment which we already thought would be.
Everyone one including the Dr. is always amazing helpful pleasant and friendly.
My child is very shy and she happened to love this Doctor. he was very kind, and without a doubt you can tell he is in this profession for the right reasons.
we got in quickly, and everyone was friendly
love dr Bosch!!
no bad. provide did great he said what he expected was going to happen. and I happened.
he showed me on paper how her collar bone would remodel. that's all I needed to see to alleviate my worries. I went there because I wanted it to be fixed surgically (he was ok with that option too)
we were accommodated for a last minute appointment and seen when needed. I know how tough that must be with numerous patients. thank you!
I never met Dr. Bosche personally because I live in New Jersey, but over the phone, he was very pleasant and explained everything in detail. He actually calmed my nerves about my son's situation due to the fact i am 410 miles away.
doctor was knowledgeable and acknowledged he was running late. however because running late he talked very fast and didn't allow time for parents to process information to ask questions. he did ask if we had any questions but felt as though he was in a hurry.
He is the greatest surgeon, he has helped our child tremendously. We are forever grateful to him.
Dr Bosch listens and explains things clearly. We trust him and know he is one of the best! I am glad I was able to get an appointment with him. i
All has been excellent.
the service provider was quick, efficient and thoughtful. He took time to talk with my son and explain what was going to happen and next steps
it was good
We have had several less than ideal experiences with Dr. Bosch, but this visit took the cake. He was rude and dismissive towards my child and despite, my son being a teenager, did not speak directly to him, and completely discounted his description of symptoms he is experiencing. He continues to insist that my son's hip pain is the result of IT Band Syndrome, but our very professional and thorough physical therapist says that is not the case. When we told Dr. Bosch this he spoke disparagingly about the PT.
Always friendly and speaks to my daughter first (and should as she is the patient) but oftentimes providers speak to parents then the kids. Very happy with care provided. On time, entire staff is friendly and very efficient.
Dr. Bosch was very thorough with our daughter's diagnosis and treatment and we are grateful for his care and direction.
1 hour wait, 5 minutes with the Dr and he don't know nothing about my daughter health. She have pain from about 6-8 months now and not just 2 weeks like the Dr think. No diagnostic, we don't know what she have, he give us only prescriptions for the physiotherapy and I need to find one myself no recommendations. 2hours travel for that! 1hour delay, 5minutes with the Dr and my daughter still have pain but we don't know why! West of time and west of money!
very good provider
I really liked the dr. felt he was very knowledgeable and explained things well. He did talk and move very quickly
Waited for quite awhile to be seen which was to be expected. Doctor seemed knowledgeable, but was very rushed and didn't seem to want to take time to answer questions.
I felt my child was well taken care of. the doctor explained everything in detail and the office was very kind and helpful.
my son was injured on the other side of the state. the medical team at the hospital out there set everything up and we drove through the night to get the Children's at 2:00 AM. this doctor was so kind and caring and did excellent work for my son to be able to return to gymnastics.
Dr. Bosch is very matter of fact, I appreciate that quality in him. He talks to my daughter with respect.
Dr. Bosch spent a lot of time explaining the pros and cons of the procedure.
Dr B showed me the x-rays and explained them.
I felt like Dr. Bosch treated my husband and I like we were stupid, talking in medical terms that we didn't know anything about. We will not be back and are seeking a second doctor. Not sure if we were his last patients but we were asking quality and he was walking out the door like we were bothering him
We were referred here by our pediatrician for a consultation and were not disappointed! Dr. Bosch put our minds at ease and gave us the information we needed. We were very pleased with our experience and would highly recommend your practice to others.
I am confident in the provider's knowledge and expertise. He was on time and friendly with my child. That being said, I felt very rushed during the appointment. We really only saw his actual face for about 3 minutes, and he gave off a vibe that we were wasting his time. (That he had more important matters to get to once we left.) He was actually walking backwards out the door while I was trying to ask questions for clarification.
I felt very comfortable with this provider. He was open to answer questions and explained things to us.
excellent provider, very knowledgeable, highly recommended
Dr Bosch explained in detail the plan,expectations outcomes
I felt we were a bother coming to see Dr. Bosch. He did not spend enough time with us. Then after the appointment I asked how to spell what she had and it was like pulling teeth. Probably the worse experience I had with a doctor at Children's. I came a distance to see him. I was warned by a parent, he's good, but has no personality.
Dr. Bosch performed a successful spinal fusion on my daughter; keeping in mind her desire & need for flexibility with her back so that she can continue to pursue her goal as a professional ballerina. We are so grateful for him!
Everyone was respectful and very professional. I felt they truly cared. My child received the best care possible.
Dr. Bosch is a fantastic physician! There's nobody I trust with my son more than him. He always takes the time needed to explain anything we have questions about, and is very honest about what's going on. He talks directly to my son, instead of me,and that makes him feel like it's really about him and that the doctor cares about his thoughts and concerns.
The doctor was very straightforward with us concerning our daughter's scoliosis and the best approach in treating it. He listened to and answered my questions. I am fully confident in his ability to successfully treat her.
Excellent. Appreciated his demeanor and interaction with our child.
the care was excellent
I just felt slightly rushed with the dr. otherwise a good visit.
Excellent care provided by Dr. Bosch.
my child felt as if the provider did not listen to him. he felt as if he was cut off when speaking and that the provider did not listen to his concerns!!!
Dr. Bosch, was on time, thorough, answered questions. We felt very satisfied when we left the appt.
we love dr Bosch he is always friendly and very informative with his results his new nurse was amazing yesterday definitely recommend this office
the doctor was informative and honest when discussing care.
this was a follow up regarding the spinal fusion Dr. Bosch performed in September 2014. there has never been anything but exceptional care provided.
he was in a hurry even though it's part of who he is
Dr. Bosch seems to be a very good provider. He is just too fast in the rooms and doesnt spend enough time with his patients.
Dr. Bosch was friendly and direct. He was very knowledgeable about the topics that were discussed. Our son was very comfortable with him.
Seem like he was in a really big hurry and didn't want to answer any of my questions. Made me feel like my daughter was just a dollar sign to him and that he really didn't care. Poor bedside manner and I am a healthcare provider myself and find his bedside manner very deplorable
Dr. Bosch and his staff are outstanding individuals that treat their patients with care and attention that is needed.
Dr. Bosch rushed us through the appointment. While I appreciate not having a long wait, he was not in the exam room longer than 5 minutes. He was very short with us and wanted short answers in return. Overall, just not very personable, not the best bedside manner.
he did by thoroughly review the X-ray.... was looking for scoliosis and I had to point out other aspects of the X-ray.... after which he agreed
The Dr is very thorough and I'm am always satisfied with the care he provides!
excellent care, knowledge and understanding
Dr. Bosch always talks directly to my son and makes him feel like he is important in making his health decisions. He talks in a way that is easy for my son to understand. I have total faith in his ability to make the best medics decisions for my son.
Dr. Bosch was extremely helpful and thoughtful. He took the extra time to check on my daughter's ankle and back. I would highly recommend him to any child needing orthopedic care.
good he is a awesome dr
the doctor was extremely rushed. he acted like he had a million other things more important than listening to my daughter and myself. I will never go back to this doctor.
Dr. Bosch did the surgery on my sons arm. I'm we We are satisfied with my sons arm, but Dr. Bosch is very arrogant and condescending. He doesn't like when we as parents questioned him. we have never had a child endure a broken bone or had to go thru an operation and we wanted all the information and we questioned everything. I don't know if Dr Bosch felt we were questioning his ability but he was very short and abrupt with his answers. he would state what he felt was enough information and then he was standing beside the door and the next thing we knew he was gone. this happened with each visit, so It wasn't just him having a bad day, the day of the surgery, the day the splint came off and a cast was put on, the day the cast was taken off, and this last visit.
Dr. Bosch provided wonderful care for our daughter. He easily explained her condition and made our entire family comfortable.
First time going to this provider at Childrens main campus. Everyone was courteous and helpful. Pleasant staff and very good experience.
very good surgeon, very friendly, but definitely rushed through the question part and was walking out as I still was asking questions
The Doctor and Staff were very attentive.
very good, we like him a lot!
We thought Dr. Bosch was excellent. He gave us clear and easily understood information about our child's evaluation and all our related questions. We intend to return to him for any future Pediatric Orthopaedic issues.
he rushed us out didn't even let us really talk I know he's a doctor and he sees medical conditions every day but every waking moment of the day I spend with my daughter I see what's going on with her I see what happens with her leg and I know it's not normal
it was all good
I thought Dr. Bosch was awesome. He literally answered questions before I had to ask. Was very happy with him!
The staff at the office was helpful, informative, and kind to my son. We appreciate how quickly we were seen and how fast the staff worked.
Dr. Bosch took his time in explaining things, gave us options and listened to our input to form a plan for our daughter's treatment.
I think that Dr. Bosch and his staff is a very knowledgeable Dr. and they all have hearts of gold.
I felt the doctor was too rushed and did not provide a relaxed exam atmosphere
always thorough and on schedule!
Appointment felt a little rushed but Dr was still thorough.
he was very rude, didnt take the time to look at my son. was only in the room for 8 mins of his time. told us this is how he scheduled. never let us really explain why we where there. i have never been so disappointed in healthy care as i was when we saw him. Dr should take the time to see there patients instead of worry about what they will make off of them.
My daughter has a problem with her left knee dislocating. Dr Bosch got us in his schedule rather quickly. He did surgery on her left knee on 7 September 2018. We are extremely impressed with his knowledge, surgical skills and his courteous manners. Dr Bosch and his staff have been extremely awesome in handling my 15 year old daughters knee issues. He is a true God send for our family!!! Thank you Dr Bosch!!! We will continue to include him in our daughters health care, whenever needed.
Dr. Bosch is great with children one of the kindest we've met.
once we got back to the exam room the doctor came in in a timely manner. we waited about 15-20 minutes in the waiting room and only about 5 minutes in the exam room. I was not expecting to be seen so quickly with how busy the waiting room was. I'm very thankful to be seen so quickly
we were very happy with the care we received
The physician was very confident and kind. He was patient with our questions, and he quickly earned my trust.
This was a first visit, we just moved to PA. The provider listened, was knowledgeable, and was quick, but thorough.
Dr. Bosch illustrated (literally, on paper) what was wrong with our child's knee and set our worries and concerns at ease.
Dr. Bosch was very thorough and explained all his concerns / non-concerns. He got input from my child and treated him with respect.
Dr. Bosch is the best! He doesn't beat around the Bush. he is straight to the point and if you do everything he tells you it will work. I had just had my daughter and we had her in his office because of her hips, he was amazing. he reinforced that he would give her the best and he was right!
Dr. Bosch is very knowledgeable, but rushes things sometimes, and dismissed concerns at times. My daughter had a mark on her leg after surgery that was no where near the site of incision and it had some numbness. When I asked him about it, he didn't know and said that they didn't do it, yet it wasn't there prior to surgery. I was not accusing at all, I just wanted to simply know what caused it.
Dr. Bosch and his staff are always excellent.
Dr Bosch was quick to give us his opinions, a bit arrogant with his answers to our questions. He was in and out of the room fairly quickly after telling us he suggests our daughter receives a brace for scoliosis at 16 he's a day for 1.5 years for a 26 degree curve. That is extremely excessive in our opinion and we will be going for a second option.
Dr. Bosche is always professional and helpful with our visits.
I really like and trust him thus far. He is very knowledgeable and considerate. I feel confident in his care at this point.
Dr Bosch treated my daughter respectfully and was available for any questions we had. We felt reassured after the follow up visit.
He only spent 2 mins in room and before he ran out of the room, I asked him if there was any special cream I could put on her skin that was peeling and he said he was an orthopedic surgeon and knew nothing about creams and that his wife doesn't even trust him to dose tylenol to his kids....
he didn't take the time to fully understand her activities, even after I explained them. the whole appointment felt very rushed
Dr. Bosch is always very personable to my son and treats him with respect. He engages him in conversation about mutual topics of interest. My son has always looked forward to visits with Dr. Bosch.
I have always been very happy with the office in general but have always seen other doctors. I WILL NEVER see Dr Bosh again. He was rude and arrogant not only to me but also to my 14 year old son. I personally do NOT CARE what letters after your name someone has worked hard to earn, that does NOT make it acceptable for rid and UNPROFESSIONAL behavior. I will tell you if my child EVER treated anyone the way this Doctor obviously felt he had the right to do I would be MORTIFIED.
We had a great experience.
I really appreciated Dr. Bosch's demeanor and the way he provided medical recommendations. He showed a real understanding of our situation and his recommendations made sense. He was thoughtful and thorough without being alarmist.
I felt although he gave reasonable explanations he was very quick. he quickly moved my sons leg around in motions very painful to my son. my son has not been able to lift his leg more than 2 inches and he moved it to his chest causing extreme pain at that time and into the next day. he did not ask any questions regarding range of motions or abilities. I called the doctors secretary asking for a return call because I was furious this morning and he was in pain. at 7pm I have not received a return
seemed annoyed we were there. Told us he didn't specialize in this area so we felt it was a wasted trip.
Dr. Was very nice and knowledgable, but seemed to be in a bit of a hurry.
Dr. Bosch seemed to be in a hurry and rushed us. We were there to see him for a scoliosis consult and he cut me off during any of my questions and stood by the door with his hand on the knob while I was still trying to get into. The entire visit was only about 3 mins, too short for a first time appt. He didn't bother asking any medical history questions of my my daughter or her family. We will not be returning to see this Dr.
We had full confidence in Dr. Bosch's abilities to properly care for our daughter. He is personable, caring and extremely knowledgeable in his field. However, his patient relationships could be improved if he could slow down a little bit...we often felt rushed. He also provides explanations at a very fast pace, so people without a medical background would have a hard time comprehending everything.
The doctor was very professional, considerate, understanding, and kind.
The wait time could've been better. Waited almost 45 mins before being seen.
We have now seen this provider Three times in relation to my daughters knee starting 4 years ago. At each visit he is short , condescending. The first time he told us it was growing pains and that she will grow out of it. When it didn't go away we again went to see Dr.Bosch and this time he proceeded to tell us it's due to over use due to my daughters activities such as dance , basketball, softball. Finally die to my daughters extreme discomfort in her knee I took her to her pediatrician at which clearly saw there was a problem for a 9 year old to be having so many issues with her knee they ordered a MRI. MRI results came back as a Baker's cyst at that time we were told that we would need to make a appointment to find out treatment options. We were told we did not have to unless her knee was causing her more discomfort at which time we did. Now to the latest visit . He as in Dr Bosch assessed her knee and she said it hurt and then he said there is nothing I can do for you it will go away in two years when my husband said it's been four and the Dr looked at her records and said oh yeah it has. If I do surgery it will just make it worse. And said I'm done you can go to the front desk. no other options to help my daughter no treatment plan nothing. So dissatisfied.
We loved Dr. Bosch, he made a personal connection with my child and then he delivered specific next steps and why. Best I could have hoped for.
Dr. Bosch did an excellent job explaining our options for my child. He listened and was extremely professional. He seems very competent and answered all of our questions.
our family is excited and proud to have Dr Bosch as our son's Doctor
all positive experiences with children's hospital
My daughter has hip dysplasia. Dr. Bosch is always great at explaining exactly what's going on and pulling up previous xrays to show us progress. I always feel informed when i leave. The bad, which is no one's fault, is that more likely than not she'll need to have surgery on both hips next year.
Dr.Bosch performed surgery on my daughter at children's hospital. it was the first experience we've had at children's and he was so amazing and reassuring. When we came back for the follow-up, he was quick and thorough. I feel very comfortable with his decisions regarding my daughter and I like how he would explain things to her. Also, the nurse that took us to the room was wonderful with Logan and I was surprised how pleasant the receptionist were and how willing to help they were. Thank you for everything.
I was very pleased with Dr Bosch and his staff. I would definitely recommend.
Dr. Bosch was very easy to communicate with and easy to understand. He was compassionate and very knowledgable.
Dr was a bit more pleasant than he usually is. The nurse that is with him though, not so much. She makes my daughter very uncomfortable.
He was a excellent Dr. He let me know everything I needed to know.
Dr Bosch was very reassuring about my son's recovery.
Dr Bosch was friendly with my child when examining her. however he was very arrogant and degrading when speaking to me. stating, "your daughter's injury does not warrant seeing an orthopedic surgeon." Also stating, "she has sever's disease and just needs to learn to deal with it."
we had nothing but good experience with the provider / was helpful courtesy and overall excellent
Everyone was very professional but personable. We left feeling informed about Faith's condition and what we needed to do next. Dr. Bosch made Faith feel comfortable and less nervous.
We traveled 2 hours to only be seen for less than 10 minutes by the doctor. I don't feel completely confident with what he told us after his quick examination. He asked my son to take a few steps and touched his back in 2 spots. I didn't feel validated completely in our concerns. I will obviously will bring my son back for follow up but hoping for more time with the doctor.
Our daughter found Dr B to be kind reassuring. He spoke to her as the patient which I found refreshing. He was funny. We are 100% satisfied with our initial visit at CHP main and this follow up visit for orthopaedic care in Monroeville.
We felt rushed, condition my daughter was diagnosed with wasn't explained thoroughly...we were basically told "back pain sucks, you will just have to get used to it..." and that additional pain she is experiencing is in her head. We will be seeking another opinion...
Dr. Bosch is always straightforward about the care he recommends for my child. I appreciate his thorough knowledge of my child's case and continued care.
I want to thank the doctor for listening and answering my questions. I appreciate the time he took.
Dr Bosch was not friendly at all. Did not take the time to listen to my daughters concerns. I felt like we were very rushed and we were being a complete waste of his time. I will not be going back to him or recommending him to anyone.
We really like Dr. Bosch.
very good provider i recommend to my friends
I have always been very pleased with Dr. Bosch, his staff and all staff at Children's during our visits.
my daughter is still having pain and all he can say it is because she is flat footed
The Doctor took TIME and CARED about why we were there. That is VERY important to a parent.
Dr. Bosch diagnosed the problem immediately after a few months of pain he knew right away what the problem was.
everything was good from beginning to end
Dr. Bosch is direct and to the point. He answered all questions we had. He appears very efficient. We would definetly recommend him to others.
I was impressed with the promptness of the visit and with the courteousness of each staff member we encountered.
this doctor was not personable and seemed impatient with our questions.
Dr. Bosch was excellent! Thanks so much for the great care.
Dr Bosch and his staff are extremely courteous, professional and helpful. Dr Bosch is very good with his patients and parents. He spent as much time as we needed to get a clear understanding of my son's condition and answered all of our questions. helping us to make a decision about his care.
staff is always kind.
Dr Bosch has been an excellent provider. he takes his time to explain results and the progress of our child's condition. he and his secretary are prompt in returning my calls and answering my questions. they take my concerns seriously.
I wasn't impressed with his attitude towards what was going on with my daughter and her knees
Really liked Dr Bosh. He had a great bed send manner and made my daughter and I very comfortable discussing her condition. Lijed the fact that he was confident in his dx and did not send us for additional, unnecessary testing.
