Farmingdale, NY |
on 11-02-*2016 Dr. Baez performed bilateral total knee replacements on me. Recovery went very well.Follow up care was good.He answered all my questions and listened. At 9 months post op I can say I have my life back and pain free.
in Wantagh, NY |
I called in to schedule an appointment, was on hold for over 18 minutes. Once the operator p/u the line she was very disgruntle. I don't know how good is the Dr. but the person taking the phone is very nasty
in Babylon, NY |
My first encounter with Dr.Baez was a most informative and pleasant experience. He was very informative and explained everything so I new what to expect . He gave me the opportunity to express my concerns that I had, and reassured me, He is patient,kind,personable and a man of integrity. After going for 3 other opinions I returned to Dr,Baez to schedule my surgery 3 months later I am like a new person. No Complications, beautiful scar, what more can you ask for.I was in the best hands ever.
in East Meadow, ny |
Dr. Baez's experience and thorough explanation about the procedure made me decide to have the bilateral knee replacement. I was worried about the pain and complications. He told me "Let me worry about the pain", he did. My 2 knee replacement surgeries were successful. I feel better than ever, I walk, exercise, do yoga, dance, etc. I went back to work and do normal activities while still attending PT since only has been 4 months after the surgeries. I am very grateful; I highly recommend Dr. Baez

Tired of dealing w/my knee pain, I went to the Central Orthopedic Group, saw Dr. Baez who allayed all my angst about having knee replacement. He performed the surgery & by following all his precise instructions diligently, regarding my rehabilitation, my recovery went smoothly & I was able to go about my every day activities sooner than I ever imagined possible! I highly recommend DR. Baez to anyone that has the need for an orthopedic surgeon that's professional & proficient in his field.
in Bellerose, NY |
Dr. Baez is an excellent doctor /surgeon. I met him about three years ago. Had one knee replacement with him and going for the second. Dr. Baez has a very well organized practice. The staff is polite and efficient. He is very knowledgable and down to earth. He explains everything in a clear and straight forward manner. Dr. Baez is a gem of a doctor. I do not trust many doctors, but I definately trust him. I recommend him 110%

I've seen Dr. Baez a bunch of times, great bedside manner, friendly and professional. I've always received excellent treatment! Even brought my daughter to see him. Highly recommend!!
in Northport, NY |
It was a pleasure to see the central Ortho group today. Dr. Baez is very professional and very friendly. He knows how to talk to kids, and keeps it honest. He explained the X-Rays and what we needed to do. The best part is one-stop shopping! I did not need to go to another store for a boot. they had the equipment right there!
Massapequa, NY |
Dr. Baez has replaced both of my knees and my right hip successfully. I have nothing but compliments and praise for his surgeries and care. I highly recommend his medical services to anyone in need of joint replacement or general orthopedic care.
in Massapequa, NY |
He did a fantastic job on replacing my left knee. Just 17 days since my surgery and I am able to walk around without a cane. Plus, no more pain in my left knee.
in Massapequa, NY |
Dr. Baez is an outstanding surgeon. He literally put my elbow back together and today--it's as good as new.
in Huntington Station, NY |
Very Nasty. Spends no time with you.
in Huntington Station, NY |
Strange doctor. Very nice until you start asking difficult questions....then he loses patience and talks down to you.
in Syosset, NY |
Doctor is horrible. Laughs and jokes while you are looking at him in pain. Being funny when someone hurts is NOT a good thing. Gave me some weird advice, sent me for x-rays when I didn't want or need them. Said he needed x-rays in order for me to get on his the new MRI machine he just bought. Felt like I was talking to a used car salesman.
in Massapequa, NY |
excellent
