I have had a completely torn ligament for a very long period of time (over 6 months) that Dr. Baratz refused to investigate with MRI or treat w/surgery; I’ve been in a brace. My arm ligament is now also impaired due to the duration of injury. Had surgery from new dr who said ligament was completely torn from bone. Dr. Baratz could not have cared less about my pain or healing. Even commented that I was acting “worked up.” I was imploring him to help me. Do not go here under any circumstances.

My son had a baseball injury and Dr Baratz made room for us the next morning. Diagnosed the thumb injury immediately without sending us all over for MRIs and additional X-rays. Had us scheduled for surgery the next morning. When the UPMC surgical center would not accept our Highmark insurance, he rescheduled us to another facility that would. Surgery took less than an hour and my son is very excited to get back on the diamond. Truly cares and put the patient first. His knowledge is extremely impressive. One of the nicest people I have ever met. Fantastic Dr and it was a Fantastic experience.

I had PIN nerve damage from surgery from different surgeon, Dr Baratz was recommended to correct. dr Baratz was able to correct the problem, all the while completely explaining the procedure and risks associated. Completely satisfied with all things associated with his practice. drive from Dayton Ohio to take advantage of his skills.

Best Of the Best ! 1997 had my right hand done, 2004 had my left hand done both had to be Endoscopic Surgical procedures, due to the fact my statue is very small. 100% successful and was back to my profession as a hairstylist within 2 weeks of surgery. 2019 and still not one issue. Now I have Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, I can tell you without Dr Baratz my carrier could have never last 33 years

Rockstar. My child had a proximal pole scaphoid fracture with 2 failed surgeries by another surgeon. Dr. Baratz fixed it and returned full function. We felt like VIP with every visit. Can't thank him enough. He's my hero!

Very caring and compassionate. Another local hospital was too full to have time to deal with my child’s injury so I was grateful Dr Baratz took the time to listen & help my child. Explained procedure throughly & put us at ease.

Really excellent, caring physician. He took the to listen and understand my work and what I needed to return to function. He explained his rationale for surgery and why he didn't recommend this specific surgery for many patients. We developed a treatment plan and I couldn't be any happier.
