    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%

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
