Dr. Szabo was very much right to the point of my shoulder problem. Not a lot of small talk, just truthful and professional. This is what people should want in a MD.
Dr. Szabo is a complete joke

Was mandatory to see this pile of crap for a workers compensation ime exam. Funny thing was I had a surgery appointment setup a few weeks later with one of best orthopedic surgeons in the region. Dr.szabo didn't know that and of course went along and did his tests. While doing then he made sure to ignore everything including all the papers from my rehab and prior doctors and surgeries. Before going into the room I did my research and knew what he looked like. While entering the room I watched him sit in the corner hall eyes stuck to his cell phone like a 16 year child. I sat in the room for 15 mins before he came in. When checking my range and mobility I had told him to stop and he kept pulling. I literally had to raise my tone to get him to stop. I will advise that if you need to see him for a independent medical exam you bring a witness or have an attorney request a recorded appointment. This doctor should be barred from doing anything medical related. I would also like to include the whole staff is very unprofessional. The nurse assistants and the xray technicians are very unprofessional. The young lady doing xrays seemed to have a problem bad mouthing another patient who was before me. Wish anyone who has to see him good luck and have an attorney for you will need. If you're looking to find a new orthopedic doctor I would stay far away from him.

GOOD LUCK!

I have had several surgeries with Dr. Szabo, everyone successful. He has always been prompt, courteous, and very informative.

I had a good experience with this doctor. I found his diagnosis easy to understand, he always asked me if I had any questions, and he did good repair work. I'd easily recommend him to a friend and/or go back to him if i had to.

Very arrogant. Waited 45 minutes for him. He was in the room for MAYBE 5 minutes, was ready to leave when he entered the room. He spoke so fast, we could hardly understand him. Before he even read the x-ray, he said I needed surgery. Wouldn't let him do surgery on my worst enemy. We will go somewhere else.
Wants to take shortcuts
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Scott J Szabo - Posted on June 30th, 2014
I went to see Dr. Szabo because I was referred to him by my HMO - I was terrified after reading his reviews and meeting him. He spent 5 minutes with me, diagnosed me with a meniscal tear and wanted to cut it out leaving me with no cushion in my knee. I went and saw another doctor downtown for a second opinion and he said that Dr. Szabo was essentially being lazy and that albeit a bit difficult, that my meniscus could be repaired successfully. I felt like I dodged a bullet because my second opinion told me that cutting out the meniscus leads to early arthritis. After dumping Dr. Szabo and having surgery to repair my meniscus at UPMC, I fully recovered and now felt phenomenal! Please stay away or at the least get a second opinion!

I found Dr. Szabo to arrogant, discourteous, and without the ability to listen to anything I said. He spent the majority of my appointments on the cell phone. He would stop mid sentence to check his text messages. My last appointment he simply walked out in the middle of my wife asking questions trying to understand what he was saying. I would not recommend Dr. Szabo to anyone under any circumstance.

This man is bought and paid for by the Insurance company. I had to go to this man for an IME for work. He had a very smug demeanor , and not for one second cared about me as a patient. The only thing this man is worried about is the money he receives from the insurance to line his bulging pockets !!!!

I read reviews about Dr. Szabo after my inital appointment and I was concerned. I asked the nurses, aides, and staff if the reviews of Dr. Szabo were accurate. All I could really get out of them is that he's good at his profession and not a pill prescriber. He accurately diagnosed my meniscus tear, prepared me for surgery mentally, and finally performed it with amazing results. I had 65% of my meniscus removed and had ZERO pain after the surgery. Within two weeks I was back to normal activity. Also, while waiting for the operating room to be prepared Dr. Szabo came to watch TV with me while we both waited for the operation, which meant a lot to me. He's a great surgeon.
