Memphis, TN |
I find Dr Blatz to o be refreshingly attentive. I really like and appreciate it that he personally to go over test results. That makes it easier to get answers to questions about anything you don't understand or just want more info about an issue.
Olive Branch, MS |
Dr. Baltz is a caring doctor who appears to be genuinely concerned for his patients health and well being. When I came to see Dr. Baltz I nervous and worried about the issue I was having. Dr. Baltz was very attentive to my issue and very knowledgeable about the treatment. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed and took away my worry. Thank you Dr. Baltz. Roll Tide!

My husband & I are both patients of Dr Baltz & are very happy with him.
in Arlington, TN |
Dr Baltz performed my colonoscopy and has seen me for routine GI issues, even while I was pregnant. He spent lots of time with me, listened and made sure I understood everything. He was thorough and did not dismiss my concerns instead being very proactive and making sure I was comfortable with treatments. Wonderfully professional and husband nurses and staff are excellent as well. He was concerned and even took time to call me himself regarding labs and results. Would recommend highly.
in Bartlett, TN |
I'm feeling better than I've felt in a while thanks to Dr. Baltz. He's gone through great lengths to get me to this point. Not all physicians will call you personally on the ph in between visits to discuss your care. When my insurance company wanted me to try a different med vs the one he recommended he appealed my case and won. His nurse is awesome as well. I would definitely recommend him.
Memphis, TN |
He was incredibly inappropriate and rude. He didn't listen to me. He didn't even ask about my diet or anything, which is VERY important when it comes to GI issues. He was extremely judgmental. He even prescribed me a medicine that I made VERY clear has NEVER worked for me. He was so awful, I had to change doctors. I am already in a lot of pain, which I why I went. He was still cold-hearted and didn't care one bit.
in Ripley ms |
I felt that he was too laid back and not aggressive enough in my care.
