This guy has terrible bedside manner. Like the others say, he z is not compassionate at all, he will rush you in an out, it you don't have something straightforward or easy to diagnose he is useless.

I have been going to Bolz since 2014, after i played a pick up game. Dr.Bolz is not compassionate at all, he will rush you in an out, the whole time I was seeing him insisted I needed a hip replacement. Then 4 year's later after 6 cortisone shots and a mri i have a labral tear, and the Dr tells me he doesn't do those, so i continue to work until im schedule to see his colleague, meanwhile hip is so bad i call Dr to see if he could take me off until my next opmt. No, after misdiagnosed me.

I would recommend Dr. Bolz. He did a knee replacement surgery on me in August, 2016 and it was very successful. Dr. Bolz is very thorough, tells you what to expect and will refer you to another physician if necessary. He has always spent sufficient time with me.
in Detroit, MI |
I went to Dr. Bolz for a knee injury. He barely spent any time in the office with me and asked very few questions. I felt that he was very short with me, especially when I asked for an MRI sooner rather than later, since I knew something was wrong with my knee. When I went for my results and follow up I again felt he was very short with me and he said he couldn't do anything operatively for me. I went for a second opinion and they found a tear in my meniscus, which Dr. Bolz missed.
in Novi, MI |
Easy to talk to; took his time and answered all of my questions. He explained things thoroughly but in terms I could understand.
