Except for the interminable waiting - even once you are in an examining room, the visit was successful and well worth the waiting. Dr. Wert and his staff are wonderful, patient, helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and thorough. The cause of my condition was found and a course of treatment prescribed that I'm totally happy with.

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 time with 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.

Dr. Wert was GREAT!!! I would wait 2 hours if I had to, just to be seen by him. He was patient, very friendly, explained my possible condition very clearly, he even drew a diagram for me to have a better understanding and he pin pointed the exact location of my pain. The staff was also very friendly. Great experience. .

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 wrote in 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.

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 already paid (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.

This is long overdue! Dr. Wert operated on my clavicle after I fell off my mountain bike. He came highly recommended by my primary care doctor who knew he was the director of sports medicine at NYMH. I am 4 months post-op and besides a tiny scar, I am 100% recovered. I look forward to being 100% cleared for weight training, rock climbing, and getting back on my bike. Thank you Dr. Wert for making this experience not so scary. The staff at Guider is so friendly too!!

1.5 hour wait time, for which he did not apologize or even bring up. This was my second visit. He diagnosed me and suggested physical therapy would in all likelihood be good enough for my issue but gave me a referral and a script to a pain management doctor, or something, "just to establish the relationship" -- why would I want to establish a relationship w/ a doctor who proscribes drugs when all I need is PT? Nice guy and very charming but I'd rather try someone else. Said he'd be right back with a few things then never came back. Sent a nurse instead.
