Dr. Scott Soltys call was pleasant, informative, and helpful. He was patient, and listened. Dr. Scott Soltys’ positive vibe/energy came across, I felt immediately comfortable. I wish the others on the call (in the room) would’ve introduced themselves or shown their faces, after all those observing could see and hear me. My problem.
Thank you Dr Scott for your help and support. I’ll wait for the next schedule of follow-ups. God blessðŸ™

Dr. called Dr. to discuss my situation on the spot.
Dr. Soltys is an excellent personable physician!
DR. Soltys is always caring & helpful - awesome!
Dr. Soltys seemed to be very rigid and therefore did not build any rapport with me. Bedside manners acceptable, but not friendly.
The only suggestion - I could have been seen at infectious diseases if my photos/messages via MyHealth had been responded to; test Dr. Soltys made a good recommendation to see my PCP if possible since the Dept. of ID wasn't able to see me one the 5th, knowing it would require another long drive for a 2nd appointment. He's trustworthy - whe he's not sure, he suggests a good next step.
All good.
Drs. Soltys, Theran and all those who attended to me were the best I have EVER experienced. Kudos to the entire staff and management...fantastic facility.
Excellent service.
Dr. Soltys was one of the most professional dr.'s I have ever worked with.
Excellent doctor.
