What People Say About Dr. Michael Rauh, MD

I had torn my meniscus. Dr. Rauh was recommended my primary physician. From the very beginning Dr. Rauh, and all the staff at UB Orthopaedics, were excellent, concerned and caring. They went through all my options with me. I first went through physical therapy, but ended up needing surgery and I am so glad I had it done. My pain is gone and my mobility has improved immensely. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rauh!

Dr. Rauh and PA Talia make a great team. After an initial visit, then an MRI, Dr. Rauh discussed my options and potential outcomes regarding a severe rotator cuff injury. He answered all of our questions and explained what to expect. Deciding to have surgery, I am now 6 months post-op and am extremely pleased with my progress so far. Both Talia and Dr. Rauh have been genuinely concerned for my welfare. They are down to earth and easy to talk to. The office staff is competent and pleasant. I would highly recommend Dr. Rauh to anyone needing his expertise. My only negative experience had nothing to do with Dr. Rauh, but rather with the site where I had my surgery. Due to my insurance not covering surgery at the Orchard Park site, I had to have it at ECMC Ambulatory Center. I would not recommend this site for surgery. I felt they did a substandard job preping me for surgery and rushed me out after surgery. The actual surgery and anesthesia dept were fine. Thanks Dr. Rauh and team!

From start to finish DR Rauh and his PA Talia were top notch, explaining my options, explaining the process of shoulder surgery. UBMD is a great facility, everything is right there, from office visits to having my MRI , surgery ,and physical therapy, If I had to do it again there's no one else I'd see. Got me back to work in 7 months !

Dr. Rauh was thorough in all my options for my shoulder. He answered all my questions so I could understand what my injury was. I had a torn Rotator cuff that has bothered me tremendously for 25 years. After surgery I actually had less pain than before. I have more range of motion after 12 weeks than before surgery. I couldn't recommend a better Dr. or person to work with to repair my shoulder. Thank You Dr. Rauh for your time, patience, and professionalism.

We have 4 kids that have all participated in sports: football, lacrosse, running and volleyball. Dr. Rauh has treated each of them at various times for sports injuries. He is not only technically very competent, but his bed-side manner is awesome.
