Dr. Goltz spends very little time with a patient. Seems put off when you ask questions. With my achilles Heel injury he looks at the scar but never assess my mobility. When I asked for additional therapy time he seemed really put off. I almost had to beg him and I've only had my cast off for six weeks. Usually it's a six month process from surgery. He said I could basically jog, golf, play certain sports. Every blog I read says the opposite. When I asked for him to contact my insurance for additional therapy hours he said, "I don't do insurance I hire people to do it." Beside manners and follow-up with information for the patient is pretty much non-existent. I just hope he is a good cut person. That's all I can hope for at this time.

I had several torn tendons in my shoulder from a fall,rotator cuff. Goltz operated and did not fix the tendon he said he would. Also he actually caused damage in the area where he did operate. I tried to sue for damages but it was not a large enough sum to interest a lawyer. $200,000 which would only have given the lawyer about $60,000. He effectively ended my liveliehood. I was a glassblower for 30 years. I found out after the operation that he could not have performed the repair he said he was going to do at the clinic where I was operated on.

Dr. Goltz may be very competent in the field of sports orthopedics, but his manner leaves a lot to be desired. He is brusque and volunteers little information unless you specifically ask, and he allows little time for questions. For example, when I hurt both my collarbone and my ribs, he looked at the collarbone but refused to answer even the most basic question about the ribs ("I don't do ribs. Go see a thoracic surgeon" was his comment.) I found this defensive posturing extremely unhelpful. Also, when I arrived I was sent for x-rays before I even had a chance to speak to anyone other than the receptionist, even though I brought a set from another doctor. This seems to be the office policy -- x-rays for everyone, whether you need them or not.
