Very professional and very experienced, my mom had a broken wrist and she felt immediate relief after he reset it. She was in a lot of pain and afterwards, felt a huge relief. Office is run very well and very professional. Highly recommended for serious and tricky cases.

It was obvious I was the last patient of the day. Dr Wilen could care less about what I was saying. Was incredibly negligent & gave me a sample of medicine without telling me what it's for or it's side effects. Absolutely will not be coming back or recommending him to anyone.

Dr. Wilen was a professional and learned doctor. He listened and asked the appropriate questions to assess my pain. His staff were professional and organized. I was able to get an MRI the same day and he knew what my insurance coverage allowed. My wait time was due to me filling out two forms as a new patient, but I would've been seen immediately had I been an established patient. I highly recommend Dr. Wilen for all orthopedic needs.

I told him I had issues with my right hand with using the mouse and I felt severe pain, he said it wasn't carpal tunnel because the pain didn't hit my fingers (now it does) and so he wanted to give my pills. If the pills worked, he wanted me to come back and make an another appt. so he can give me a prescription. It was a waste of time, I don't want to rely on pills to take away pain, and I think it was unfair to make me come back waste another co-pay just for a prescription.

Love Dr. Wilen I was a patient of his years ago and lost him do to insurance change. Finally got him back and couldn't be happier. He's very knowledgable and has an awesome bedside manner with his patients. His office is bigger than the last one and his staff are all very nice and friendly. I have definitely referred others to him and will continue to do so.

Horrible and will never be back. 1. The Friday before my Monday appointment I get a call that since I'm a new patient my appointment needs to be moved up to 430pm instead of the 545pm slot I took from zocdoc. I said no I have to work. Earliest I can get there is 530 and not for nothing, you should work it out with zocdoc so this doesn't happen to other patients. 2. Cash only. It is 2016 and absurd for a doctors office to take cash only and they won't even bill you! They force you to go to an atm get cash, and come back with it and on top of that the receptionist said I remember telling you this over the phone. Sorry sweetheart but you didn't! 3. Go back and an employee takes down my medical history. I tell him what's going on with me and the dr walks in asks me what's wrong and says oh you need an MRI and EMG. Doesn't even touch me!!! No exam, no nothing. I cannot accept this kind of behavior. It is unacceptable for a dr to accept my copay and not even examine me. I will never be back and will also be calling my insurance company to report him.

Just don't.. Dr Wilen and his staff are so beyond incompetent and wasted a month of mine and my partner's time. Examinations were done, referrals were given and they weren't even offered to the radiologist office we went to. A month of calling and trying to set up an MRI and nobody EVER helped us, and now we have to go to a different orthopedic to start over. THANKS GUYS!

My visit or my entire experience with the Wilen office and brief chat with Dr. Wilen was frustrating and eye opening. I trusted Zocdoc and they let me down. I have two major issues. My first one has to do with ZocDoc. ZocDoc's system is fine and needed in the market place. The problem is that people in the medical offices and especially Dr. Wilen's office are mostly non educated office staff that don't know how to use ZocDoc's system. They did not even know I used Zocdoc. I entered my health insurance info and provided all the numbers needed. Only for the office staff to make human errors with paper work and waste hours of my time. My grip with zocdoc is why are you allowing these types of offices use your system? I have to wonder if all of the medical offices in my area are like this and I am just wasting my time using Zocdoc. I would recommend to zocdoc not to let Dr. Wilen use your system. Is zocdoc checking in on the offices after they sign up a client? In this case no way! My grip and frustration with the Wilen team is beyond getting work up with...The staff's first language is not English and their attitude does not belong in the medical field. If you are not from NY or not from the area don't waste your time using this office. You will only waste your time...In today's heavily insured medical field the office staff is as important as the Medical staff. I would have to question how Dr. Wilen allows an incompetent staff represent himself--and if he allows incompetence on his staff is he an incompetent Dr? As I write this and do my own research i noticed that Yelp as 28 votes and 2.5 stars. Silly me for not doing my own research.

- Office and support staff professional and personable - Dr seems like nice person but my problem wasn't solved; I'm certainly hopeful that there might be more treatment options with next visit. - Parking is terrible in this part of Brooklyn and it took me 45 minutes to find a spot which was 2 blocks away and difficult because of my injury - They don't take checks, only cash or charge
