Ratings for Dr. Mark E. Baratz
In the last 10 years when ever I needed an Orthopedic surgeon I've seen Dr. Baratz.8 years ago he scoped my left shoulder for an impingement problem and it's been fine ever since. Just this May 2011 he operated on a knuckle on my right hand for artheritis and it helped greatly. This year he was named as one of the top 200 surgeons in Pittsburgh, Pa. I have complete faith and confidence in him . Frank D.
I complained to him that I had pain in my shoulder blade, below my collarbone (but above my breast), my wrist and tingling in my fingers and a weak grip. He repeated insistently, "WHAT HURTS WORSE?" until I felt like I had to point at one location. He gave me a lidocaine/ketone shot. That night, my skin bubbled and itched. His nurse said I had a rare allergic reaction. It left me with a scar and an indentation in the area of the shot. A year later, his colleague called a medical student into the room to show him "This is what happens when you don't put a shot in deep enough. It ate the fat away from under her skin." I am just now seeking treatment for the problem, which was not resolved, because I was afraid of being treated so callously and lied to again!
