I had an ACL knee injury over the summer. I was devastated as I am a long distance runner and skier. I was referred to Dr. Wert by my primary care doctor who knew he was the Director of Sports Medicine,and had great results with many of his patients. He made me feel very comfortable and I knew right away he would be my top choice for my surgery. I was cleared to return to all activities this week. My knee literally feels like I never injured it! Thumbs up to his office staff as well. Highly recommended!

Dr. Wert was one of the nicest, most efficient doctors I have ever met. He sees a lot of patients, but he didn't seem rushed or flustered. He is also not quick to jump into a surgical solution which I appreciated,and will exhaust other options like PT before doing anything invasive. I highly recommend.

Dr Wert is very professional, a nice personality and very knowledgeable. He did my surgery two years ago and he still remembered me and my partner. He gave me good solutions to help me manage my knee pain. His staff hadsome welcome changes since two years ago. These changes were for the better in his office on Seventh Ave Brooklyn All in all very positive!

Dr. Wert and all staff were kind, timely, professional and efficient. I was given a plan to follow that was comprehensive and nobody pushed for unnecessary procedures/ testing, which is important to me. Dr. Wert spent a good amount of timewith me and made sure I understood exactly what was going on in my body and showed genuine care/ concern. I will definitely recommend him to others and be a return patient.

The staff was also very friendly. Great experience. .

My appointment was fine. The office was nice, the doctor was late, but his staff called to inform me in advance. But I have to say, the administrative follow-up has been awful. The office billed me for a co-pay I alreadypaid (in cash, because the office does not accept credit - fortunately I asked for a receipt). I've had to call billing twice now to correct it because it wasn't fixed after the first call. Additionally, I've called the office several times in the last week and a half to get an updated prescription and Dr. Wert's staff said that he has not responded to any of their emails. I would not recommend this doctor.

The doctor saw me for a VERY short time. His communication was poor, and he didn't adequately explain what was wrong with my ankle. He was more interested in showing some intern how to look at a foot. He then wrotein very sloppy handwriting some disjointed lingo on the discharge papers. All he put were words. He didn't explain specifically what the X-rays showed and what the problem was either to my face or on the paper. I asked him if he would write it in layman's terms about my foot; he said he would, and that they would be available on the way out. He never did write it out for me. Also, there was a guy who asked me, in the office, about my insurance, and when I made a minor error by crossing out an error on the page, he was extremely rude, insulting, and sarcastic to me. He had to go through the "ordeal" of getting a new sheet because cross-outs aren't permitted. Needless to say, I didn't feel overly sorry for me. Then he gave me an ankle brace and tried his best to rush me out of there without telling me how to put the thing on, which is a little complicated. He couldn't be bothered with that! All in all, it was not a pleasant experience. I went to the orthopedist's office to SPECIFICALLY find out what was wrong with my ankle, and I didn't learn anything; I only got a recommendation to a sports rehabilitation center.
