What People Say About Dr. Jorge Baez, MD

My wife went in on a Wednesday for hip replacement surgery with Dr. Baez. He explained it very clearly at the Intake. The next day she was up walking with the physical therapist. She came home Friday and was able to manage two flights of stairs to get to our bedroom. Dr. Baez did a magnificent job and the agonizing bone-on-bone pain that brought us to him is completely gone! I recommend Dr. Baez to anyone in need of a knee or hip replacement. He is an excellent surgeon and his work is brilliant!

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.

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.

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%

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!

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.

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.
