I got off work 2 hours early for this appt to. When I got there, the extremely rude receptionist told me I missed my apptmt on the 13th. I didn't have an appt to not the 13th. She said Oh yea,that was in 2017. Then she said I didn't have an apptmt with Dr Wexler. Infuriating. She treated my with such disrespect. She was rude & snotty. The just lost a patient. My husband too.

I think he spent about two minutes with me. Two actual minutes. Maybe he thought that was all I needed but he’s wrong. He wasn’t personable, he didn’t ask many questions and then he said I could see another doctor ifI needed to when I came back who specialized in my area. He looked at my X-ray, not my ankle. I’ve never felt so unimportant to a doctor. Horrible bedside manner. I won’t be back.

Dr. Wexler is very arrogant and each of the three appointments I've had with him he walks out of the room without indicating the visit is over..saying goodbye... I had questions/concers and was told I would have to wait for himto finish up with another patient. Continuing to have problems following surgery. With his terribly arrogant attitude towards his patients and the fact that I question how great a doctor he really is.....I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND SEEING DOCTOR WEXLER !!!

My only complaint was the online appointment I made thru Zocdoc was for 10:55, the doctors office had my appointment for 10:15, so there is a disconnect that you need to fix.

Dr. Wexler performed my miniscus repair surgery 2 years ago. Recurring knee pain sent me to him, he ordered X-rays done on both knees and once we looked them over, he determined I should schedule an appointment with the knee specialistin the same office. Whenever I have seen Dr. Wexler he has been pleasant, but VERY quick to move things along. Can feel a bit dismissive, but time is not wasted.

After a wait at the 1st floor front desk; behind other persons; to be checked in and receive paperwork to fill out and then return to them; it went quite quickly. Was called into exam rooms area. Nurse came to fetchme for X-rays. That done she escorted me back to my room. Then Dr came in and it was a brief visit as we were going to schedule MRI and then come back next week. So, will see how it goes from there.
