Review of Dr. Baitner

- in Miami, FL |

Before Dr. Baitner, we went to two orthopedic doctors only for them to tell us my son's tipping toeing was a neurological condition due to his autism and that there was nothing they could do. We weren't going to accept this so we began our research and came across Dr. Baitner who just from seeing him was able to diagnose him and gave us the option of surgery. My 15 year old son is walking on his heels for the 1st time in his life and that is thanks to Dr. Baitner. We are forever grateful.

Review of Dr. Baitner

- in Plantation, FL |

My son injured his ankle and I was looking for a good Orthopedic doctor . I went to Nicklaus hospital and met Dr. Baitner . Right away I thought this is a great dr. for my son. He treated us like a patient and not like a number . He has a nice personality and the most important..... he cares. My son James loves him and we trust him. I truly recommend Dr. Baitner he is the best.

Review of Dr. Baitner

- in Miami Beach, FL |

My son is a patient of Dr. Baitner for approximately 7 years. My son has spasticity in his muscles that caused him to walk on the tips of his toes on his left side. Dr. Baitner performed an Achilles’ tendon release which was not only successful, but changed my son’s life. He has been walking a lot better and is able to run and play as other kids. More recently, my son had a hamstring release surgery which also turned out AMAZING & my son is better than ever. Lastly, my son LOVES Dr. Baitner!

Review of Dr. Shufflebarger

-Florida |

It was very hard to get an appointment. Finally, when I did get one, I arrived 15 prior to my appointment time and waited an hour to be checked in. Another hour for the xray. And still waiting to be seen by doctor. One of the worst waiting times I have ever experienced. Two hours and still not seen is unacceptable.

Review of Dr. Shufflebarger

- in Miami,fl |

Dr. Shufflebarger has been my doctor for over 10 years and is an amazing spinal orthopedic. He is the only surgeon I trust, he operated me back in 2010 and made sure I understood the procedure and was comfortable. Though I am an adult now he still cares for his patients and if I ever need to come into the office for a consultation he makes time to help.

Review of Dr. Spurdle

-Miami, FL |

Dr. Spurdle may be a competent physician, but he fails to answer questions comprehensively and is extremely condescending. He shows no interest in the young patient. The combination of these factors always made me feel like he wasn't telling me the whole truth.

Review of Dr. Baitner

- in Ft Lauderdale, FL |

Dr Baitner did my sons surgery about a year and a half ago and he is an amazing doctor he explained everything to me and my son very well and eliminated so much worry and concern in both my child n I! The wait time might take time but he is so worth the wait and will take well care of ur child! He not the type of doctor to just say you need surgery he really examines you and studies you and if surgery is needed you can trust in him! Im actually now in broward and going to him for another son.
