10/12/13 5 5 5 5 I initially chose Dr. Betz, after reading some of his research articles as well as reviewing his rating. After meeting him and had him corrected my son's scoliosis, I can only say he exceeded my expectations. He is not only a great surgeon, but a man with a great heart, who truly listen to his patient and really genuinely care about his patient. He constantly check on his patient post - operatively and made him self available for any questions or concerns. I feel very blessed to have a chance to meet such excellent doctor and by far would recommend him to anyone. He also has a great team who coordinate the care and work closely with him.  Respond

17/05/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Betz performed my scoliosis surgery in 1999. I am happily married with a beautiful daughter now & am able to ride roller coasters & do pretty much everything that I did prior to surgery. I know someone who went to school with me & had a surgery done 3 months prior to mine & could not touch her toes the next year. The flexibility of my rod is amazing. I forget that it is there. It also helped with my confidence. He did an amazing job & I would recommend him to anyone.  Respond

14/07/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Betz is the nicest doctor. He did my daughters spine surgery 8 years ago. My daughter has never had a problem. He is the best around. We traveled 200 miles for her surgery & the experience at shriners was a good one. Everyone was wonderful. I remember speaking to him about my concerns for pain medication & I mentioned a drug that my friends son had been given in washington & it helped him with the pain. His answer to me was I would not give your daughter that drug because it is very addicting. Well 8 years later my friends son is addicted to that drug. My daughter is now a beautiful 23 year old girl. Thank You Dr. Betz. You are a wonderful man with great bedside manners.

There is never a day I take for granted the great things he has done for me and so many others. Dr. Betz is the best!  Respond

17/11/04 5 5 5 Dr Betz is the nicest doctor ever. I have been seeing him since I was born and he is the reason I am able to walk today. He really cares about his patients and their families. Now that I am 18 and will not be able to see him again until I am 21, I will really miss going to his office. He knows each of his patients by name and remembers certain details about them. I love this guy!! He calls me his "shining star."  Respond
