Dr. Baltz takes time to listen and address every concern. He seems to truly care about helping. He has gone out of his way to make sure my insurance covers what I need. He works you in quickly if there has been an unexpected change in status. Dr. Baltz will even personally call to check in with you when you are having a particularly rough patch - to give you lab results and a plan of care or just to see if you’re doing ok and/or need any further help to be well.

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.

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.

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.

I felt that he was too laid back and not aggressive enough in my care.
