Excellant Surgeon

I have seen Dr. Blatz since 2000. He has repaired my rotator cuff and replaced my right ACL. Both surgeries were resulted in the return of total functionality. Dr. Blatz's patient relations manner is superb, in the office and at the surgical center he is empathetic and treats patients with the respect and kindness that makes it extremely comfortable to engage him for professional services.

Four Stars

Dr. Blatz is very well educated on current techniques such as stem cell and PRP and will try to avoid invasive surgery if possible. While his bedside manner may be a bit gruff, I far prefer it to the puffed up egotists that too easily dispense drugs or immediately recommend surgery.
