Usually for a doctor/patient relationship, the patient should have a good and easy access with his/her doctor to discuss any medically related questions. However, with Dr. Beltz she NEVER talks to her patients outside of the office, especially if you were to call her. She will instead have her nurse call her patients back with inadequate answers and then you will have to schedule an appointment to talk to the doctor. Yesterday, there was a snowstorm, and I wanted to keep my appointment. I live about 12 miles away but I started an hour earlier in order to be on time. I called ahead to let someone know I would be late (by 15 minutes) and they said that this would be fine. The whole reason I made the trip was for a sick visit, not a routine checkup, so it was necessary that I see the doctor. I reached the office, waited for 10 minutes, only to find out the Doctor refused to see me and I would have to reschedule the appointment. The inconsiderate nature of this Doctor Beltz has forced me to change my doctor. I urge anyone thinking about seeing this doctor to reconsider and find another doctor who is considerate about the patient. Thank you.
Pros: She is with a group practice.
Cons: Does not return phone calls, always sends to a specialist
