Review of Dr. Baitner

- in Naples, FL |

Dr. Baitner is a very knowledgeable orthopedic surgeon. He has performed 3 surgeries on our son, all with unbelievable results! He believes in our son and any future possibilities. He takes time to understand the situation and recommends the best option(s). He is passionate about his work and takes time to interact with his patients. I have recommended Dr. Baitner and they are also very pleased with his practice. We travel across the state due to his expertise!

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.

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.
