Patricia Greco – Jul 28, 2021
Dr. Paz saw me on short notice to address severe hip pain. After reviewing the MRI and examining me, he gave me a steroid injection to relieve the intense pain. He explained that part of the injection is short-lived (only a few hours) and that the steroid part may take a few days to provide relief. The pain was gone immediately, but, as he suggested, it was back the next day (today). He prescribed medicine to help with the pain, and offered for me to call him at any time. His treatment of my case was very caring and professional, and I highly recommend him.

Ronald Libutti – Jul 22, 2021
Took the afternoon off from work, waited 2 hours and 15 minutes only to be told the doctor left for the day and I could come back at 830 in the morning the next day. Asked for a note and that request was denied since they hadn’t officially seen me. So I lost out on an afternoon of pay, no procedure, and have an unexcused absence from work. The receptionist was great and checked on me a couple of times. She was the lone bright spot.

I’m giving two stars because there is no denying Dr. Paz is skilled at what he does BUT when I was in severe pain from a recent injury, he was demeaning, rude and dismissive. Not one ounce of compassion when I was in severe pain for days after an adjustment by the chiropractor he sent me to. I called asking for pain meds (first time ever). The PA called me back, and then put me on speaker phone to be scolded by Dr. Paz… “I don’t have time for all these calls about one patient.” (The chiropractor and the insurance advocate called on my behalf earlier that week.) Dr. Paz then basically accused me of being a pill popper and said “I don’t run a pill mill”,and “use these 12 pills wisely” and “this is a one time deal”. The very next day after that call, my X-ray showed multiple fractures in both ribs! Not one phone call or follow up. I put in a complaint with my insurance company and they suggested putting in an official complaint with the medical board but we all know how that will go.

Jorge Rivera – May 20, 2021
I have never been so disrespected by a physician. His huge ego decided HIS outcome before I was dismissed and not allowed to ask a question, which was the reason for my office visit. I will never return to this provider and will not recommend him to anyone. My only regret is that I can't leave zero stars.

Wonderful office. Staff is friendly and organized. Dr. Paz is sympathic to my pain issues and is always ready to do what he can to alleviate the problem. He has a jovial upbeat attitude and a gracious beside manner. I have been a patient of his for approximately 4 years. While the results are always good there are times when I have felt 10-15 years years after being treated by him. I recommend him and Orthopedic Specialists highly. (I also have an acquaintance who had both knees replaced by another OS doctor and he is doing really well too)
