  • Great provider! Wouldn't use anyone else in South Coast for my Orthopedic issues. Thank you Dr. Baltz.

  • Doctor was very professional, professional and knowledgeable about my condition, but did not ask me any questions about my life and what I do for work and how it would affect me. Otherwise, he was very very professional, but I felt like he did a lot of the talking and didn't ask a lot of questions about what was going on with my health concern. Thank you.

  • Knowledgeable but abrupt.

  • everything ok and on time.

  • There is nothing to improve my appointment went great answered all my questions i would recomend Dr Baltz to family and friends

  • Dr Baltz’s was very helpful and fixed my problem with my knee.

  • I know it is a crazy time and considering that, the experience was good. I will have more appreciation seeing my Dr when he returns to his Wareham office.

  • Clerical staff seemed stressed. Understandable!!

  • Check in was easy and no wait once in the door. The doctor listened to my concern and tried to address it even though he was unsure it would be helpful due to the nature of the concern.

  • Everything was handled well except for the confusion when I first arrived, if I had already called to check in. Explained I wasn't aware that I had to. Come to find out the receptionist that called me had checked me in !

  • I observed that it was nice and clean.

  • Excellent service and care

  • Given the COVID-19 situation, I was a little skeptical about going to any doctor. Someone screened me before I was allowed to even enter. The receptionist and nurse were lovely and calming. Dr. Baltz seemed to know exactly what he was doing and conducted a few short tests to find the root of my painful neck and shoulder problems. After having a few x-rays taken - the technician being efficient and kind - he gave me a plan of action. Overall, the social distancing and sanitizing efforts were excellent, and the medical care exceeded my expectations.

  • I was very pleased with the care and attention received once I entered the facility. I am not sure if it was because of the holiday on Monday and my appointment was on Tuesday, but I was instructed to call once I arrived at the facility and at the parking lot. I did call and was on hold for 15 minutes and finally decided to enter the entry hall where I was greeted and told by the person who took my temperature that the wait had been about 20 minutes before someone would answer my call so that I could enter the Southcoast. I was concerned that I would be late for my appointment, which is why I decided to enter at the front door. From then on my experience was acceptable and I was attended to.

  • I was told I would have to wait in my car but when I got there it was unclear which side I should park on or if their was a order to parking

  • Dr Baltz is very good at his job. This morning I was thinking miracle worker. THANK YOU

  • Things moved quickly and smoothly That always is a plus. I know the Doctors see thousands of patients a year. It didn’t bother me too much, but he didn’t seem to remember me. Again not a big deal. Thx

  • Everything went well. I felt safe because of the Covid precautions that were taken at the entrance. My medical issue was diagnosed and treated in an efficient manner.

  • Everyone was very friendly and caring

  • Always polite and helpful. Take good care of me.

  • Very helpful and answered all concerns.

  • My visit was for a specific reason. Pain in my right shoulder. X-rays were taken and the doctor examined my shoulder for the source of pain. We discussed what was happening and why. He explained my options for recovery and proceeded with my permission and choice of recovery. He answered all my questions and will see him for follow up in 7 weeks. A pleasant experience as he is a new physician for me and i was pleased with the outcome of our meeting.

  • In and out quickly. Questions answered and treatment given right away.

  • [Name] is awesome! The staff is amazing! Dr B is great too! Nothing but good vibes from the time I walked in the door to leaving.

  • I was very happy with the girl who took care of me she did a great job.

  • It is helpful having an expert opinion of what is happening to my knee. My art knee feels better after the Cortisone injection. I feel better knowing how best to treat my knee. Please let Dr. Baltz know that my High Profile Daughter [Name] agrees with his Plan of care. She was pleased that my knee “Required no further intervention.” Weight loss of course would help me waltz thru my remaining years. [Name] is married to a Navy Seal and I have to adapt to their lifestyle during The Holidays. 

  • Excellent, caring team

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
