Was a hard working woman!

Terrible!!! Worst doctor in Niagara Falls in my opinion. He failed to tell me I had a torn ACL couple years ago. Today, I have a deteriorating ACL and grade 4 arthritis. He's the type of doctor that will lie on you in reports. Sins of omission! Best thing I can tell you is to run as fast and as far away from this doctor as you possibly can. Find somebody else....ANYBODY but him! He don't deserve the one star I gave him!

prompt and courteous

Surgery on torn tendon turned out very well. Stay in hospital was short. Follow up treatment has been excellent with all questions answered in terms I could understand. Patience shown when asking questions superb. I would recommend this Doctor and office staff to anyone needing this specialized care!

Dr. Bax schedules everyone for the same time (e.g.1:30PM), then doesn't show up until 2:30PM and sees patients very briefly, in no particular order. Expect to wait 3-4 hours, no matter what kind of pain you're in. He has a very terse manner and spends the absolute minimum anount of time with each patient.
