Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Wert is a terrific doctor and person. He was very knowledgable and took time to listen to my symptoms. The wait time was very minimal and nice office. I highly recommend him for any orthopedic needs.
Dr. is very patient and understanding. I was a little nervous he put me right at ease. I recommend him highly,great Doctor.
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!
Excellent experience all around. Dr. Wert was very genuine, professional, personable and kind. I couldn't be more happy with my experience and I look forward to seeing him again next month.
Dr. Wert was excellent. He had great manner, was attentive and informative. He explained everything so clearly. Office staff was nice and everything moved quickly. Would highly recommend!!
one of the best doctors I've encountered he knew what was wrong with my knee, and addressed all my concerns. will not be going anywhere else.
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.
I was see right away. He is so sweet but confident and I totally trust his opinion, fabulous Dr
Dr.Wert, made me feel very comfortable, which is not an easy task. He explained the procedure that has to be done. Looking forward to see him again, Recommend Highly!
Very sincere, him and his team ! A great ortho experience !
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 had some 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 is very pleasant and professional in the immediate interaction but does not follow up with patients. Once you walk out the door, its like you don't exist.
very friendly, thoroughly explained everything about my condition. seems eager to explore more holistic options for treatment (rather than just surgery)
Knowledge and personable.
Dr Wert was very professional, friendly and patient. He took his time in explaining the different treatments, very courteous. I also thought the girls in the office were very friendly.
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.
All of his staffs all the way from receptionist to medical assistants are very polite, friendly, very professional and so efficient with their tasks.
Dr Wert is very professional and have a great bedside manner. I will recommend him 100%
Knowledgeable, fast, no run-around.
Very good! He explained everything to me in simple terms I could understand.
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. .
Dr. Wert was thorough and professional. He explained well his diagnosis and what he hoped to accomplish in followup. He was highly personable and caring.
The doctor had a wonderful personality! After examining my knee, he explained everything explicitly to me and made me feel very comfortable. I haven't met a doctor like Matthew Wert in a very long time. I say two thumbs up to him and his staff,
Wondering why there wait time as I was first patient scheduled for the day
He's a great doctor but everytime i come here i have to wait for 2 hours
I was very pleased with the visit and doctor.
Matthew is an EXCELLENT surgeon and I highly recommend him.
Dr was wonderful!
Was perfect, my visit was a follow up for my surgery, he's a excellent doctor, highly recommended
He took the time to explain my situation in very specific detail. He was very friendly and took his time in answering my questions. I would definitely recommend him to other potential patients.
I was happy with my visit to Dr. Wert; he has a great bedside manner, made me feel comfortable, was thorough with his explanations, and did not make me feel rushed at all. I would recommend him!
He is wonderful ! Highly recmmended
Excellent! Dr. Matthew Wert is AWESOME! The wait can be a bit, but I understand why? Dr. Wert is so thorough and patient and he explains everything so you can understand and be at ease... Great visit!
Excellent bed side manner and professional staff all around.
He was very professional, personable, and knowledgeable
Very informative. He took the time to explain the different treatments available to me. He has a wonderful bedside manner.
This is a doctor who is highly educated, qualified and skillful. He has a big heart and really cares about his patients. He is very caring . He makes you feel so as ease with his smile and welcoming spirit. One would in the best of hands with this orthopedic surgeon!!!!
The best doctor I seen so far. He was knowledgeable, kind, to the point. I actually love his bedside manners. Awesome and kind 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 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.
Very professional, good communication and explanation of treatment plan to the patient
Professional, clean, helpful and knowledgeable. I love this Doctor. He was clear and concise with the treatment and generous with his time and explanation of my issues. Dr. Wert knows his stuff and treats with compassion, dignity and respect. ,,,,,,,so refreshing.
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!!
Dr Wert was extremely knowledgeable and a great guy. I highly recommend him for anyone in need
Dr. Wert went above and beyond my expectations. I was seen right away and he immediately made me feel at ease. He did a thorough examination and explained everything with great detail. I feel very confident knowing he will be performing my upcoming surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Wert!
Very professional and caring.
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.
Every people here was excellent, the attention and everything. Doctor explain everything in clear and simple way. I high recommended
Dr. Wertz and his staff are the bomb.com
He's a caring professional that actually takes the time to explain everything to you.. His staff is also very helpful
El dr es un gran profesional fui atendida muy bien por eldr y su equipo de Trabajo amables atentos y me explico acerca de mi tratamiento columna dandome tres opciones a seguir y cual el me recomendaba estoy feliz hacerlo encontrado graciassss
Dr. Wert was excellent. He was throrough in his explanation, listened to my concerns and recommended the most conservative remedy. Highly recommended.
He listened carefully, responded to exactly what I was saying and explained thoroughly (he even drew it for me) where he thought the pain was coming from. Highly recommend him!
Great doctor. Very knowlegible and helpful.
Extremely professional, knowledgeable and nice.
Dr. Wert is so knowledgeable, professional, and so nice! His demeanor almost instantly made me trust him as a doctor AND a surgeon. If I need surgery, he's definitely the doctor I trust for the job. He also seems like a great teacher to his residents.
The staff at the office provided great service and Dr. Wert was excellent.
Great custome service! Wonderfull staff. Dr. Wert was patient and explain in details the diagnoses.
The Doctor was very professional, and kind. Took time to answer my questions.
The staff at Dr. Wert's Brighton Beach office were all professional and friendly. Dr. Wert himself was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, not seeming to rush the visit. The wait time was quite long, though, resulting in about 1.5 hours total at the clinic. Other than that, a good experience.
Very friendly doctor. Clearly explained everything I needed to know.
Dr Wert is a great guy who cares about his patients. I was in so much pain prior to surgery that I walked out of surgery with no cane or anything.
I chose Dr. Wert because he repaired my colleagues rotator cuff, who is now back to playing tennis full time. I had a very complex injury to my knee where I needed my ACL ligament reconstructed. This was unfortunately the second time I tore the ACL in that knee which meant I needed a revision and it is much harder. I was just cleared by Dr. Wert to go back to all athletic activities including highly competitive tennis. Not only was the surgery done well, but I can feel such a difference right away from the way I felt after my first surgery with another doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Wert for his expertise, surgical skill and his level of respect and bedside manner is just icing on the cake!
trust me you won't be disappointed. He's very friendly out going and makes you feel very comfortable. They should have more doctors like him??
Once again I was glad I went to Dr. Wert. He quickly diagnosed the problem, explained and illustrated it(!), and explained my options. He's personable and put me at ease.
Dr. Wert is one of the BEST doctors I've ever had. He is compassionate, very patient, knowledgeable, down to earth, and professional. I am fortunate to have been his patient.
HE IS AN EXCELLENT DOCTOR, KIND, CONSIDERATE, AND KNOWLEDGEABLE.
Great doctor very friendly highly recommend . Great personality . Thanks Doctor Mathew and thanks for all the group .
Very knowledgable, great bedside manner, very patient nice person. It was an absolute pleasure to have him as a doctor
My visit was great the only thing the receptionist did not call my prescription in
Dr Wert was very friendly, professional, and courteous. I did have to wait a good 45 minutes or so but it was worth the wait. He took the time to listen to me regarding why I visited him, including my history. He asked me a few questions and within 15 minutes he was able to properly diagnose my issue and even took the time to put things in laymen's terms and give me options on next steps. I would recommend him to anybody who is looking for a solid, honest, patient Dr who has great bedside manner!
Very nice and knowledgeable doctor.
Great experience. Dr. Wert is highly recommended .
Easily one of the best experiences I've had with Dr's in NY. Matt is very personable and I was comfortable right from the start.
I really enjoyed the visit. he was extremely polite, listend and answer all my questions.
Dr Wert is great, the Brooklyn office is not. I waited over two hours on both occasions.
Dr. Wert was fantastic - very, very knowledgeable and friendly. I went to see him about a shoulder problem and he explained the issue clearly. He took time with me and did not seem overly rushed. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Wert and his PT staff were helpful and extremely nice. The wait time was the only drawback but, it was worth the wait.
Dr. Matthew was very nice and explain me everythink about my problem. He helped me a lot
Dr Wert is a great guy and extremely knowledgeable surgeon. He spent a long time with me and explained everything while answering my questions. I highly reccomend him
First appointment I wait over an hour the second about 45 minutes. But I really liked him, he was ver knowledgable and informative.
Dr. Wert is the best! All of the positive recommendations on him are true. He spends plenty of time with the patient, and is kind, friendly and informative. He has a very old-school way of dealing with his patients, and you feel that he truly cares about your condition. I highly recommend!
Dr. Wert was extremely patient and explained all options. His staff is friendly, I would highly recommend Dr. Wert for his quality of care and knowledge.
I had a excellent visit. Dr. Wert was highly recommended to me and I see why. He was very explanatory, attentive and efficient.
DR, WERT IS VERY FRIENDLY, AND CONSIDERATE, TO HIS PATIENTS. HE ALWAYS MAKES A PROPER DIAGNOSIS, AND IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE. . I RECOMMEND HIM TO ALL MY FRIENDS .HE'S GREAT!!
Dr. Wert seems like a pleasant physician but the wait was over one hour and the consult itself was very short, it felt rushed. The consult was so short that I am unsure of how I felt about him as a physician but he did come highly recommended.
Friendly staff, friendly doctor and very knowledgeable.
Great doctor, very caring, patient and thorough.
This was my first visit with him and I felt like I was in good hands. He made me feel welcome and listened to me. Started a plan, made it easy to accomplish, and explained everything thoroughly. Even got an injection a in the knee and it's the first time it didn't hurt receiving it. Would definitely recommend him.
The entire staff was warm and helpful.
My whole family has been seen at some point by dr. Wert. He is an amazingly caring and thorough Doctor. He did surgery on my daughters knee and when ever we go back he asks about her knee and how's she doing.
Dr. Wert is truly a man who loves his work. He is compassionate and understanding and if you need further assistance he refers you to the best of the best.
im new and i love zocdoc but what is a zoc! doc wert is quick n easy i felt like i could trust him it appears he is excellent inbhis craft however i need a diff specialist due to my neck injury
Professional and friendly.
Long wait and disorganized staff. doctor is knowledgeable, great bedside manner, explained everything, no rushing. doctor provided copies of everything, such as x rays, to take home or show another professional without problems. gave recommendations and referrals but could not help himself. very energetic and positive disposition. nice to talk and deal with, very pleasant person.
Dr. Wert was great! The wait was a bit long, but his receptionists were attentive and let me know they were running behind, and when I did get in the doctor was so on point that I didn't mind. Would highly recommend!
Very satisfied. He explained everything, answered all my questions. I might add, the office staff were upbeat and efficient.A very professional place!
He explains things in a very understandable manner and makes you feel at ease. He always greets you with a smile . My husband and I have great confidence in him!!
Another great visit with a detailed discussion of treatment options and plans to rehabilitate my shoulder and back.
Everything was great!
This is a wonderful and kind doctor with a wonderful staff as well . He is very knowledgeable and always wants to help people . If you need this kind of doctor I highly recommend him!! You are made to feel very welcomed in his office .
Very happy with my visit. The doctor was very professional and understanding. He listened to my complaints and carefully made his analysis, recommending a procedure for my problem. I would definitely go back.
I'm rather impressed. I didn't need to do much explaining. He diagnosed my problem simply by looking at the X-rays. He gave me options he felt would best ease my pain and heal my problems and had the greatest bedside mannerism. Then he performed a procedure with painless expertise. I really like him and would definitely recommend him. :)
The wait time was only about 10 minutes. He is a wonderful caring doctor who takes the time to explain things and answers all your questions. He has a great personality and amazing bed side manner. He gave me an injection in my knees and I never felt a thing. He is smart, knowledgable and I recommend him to everyone that wants a doctor that you can trust and who truly cares. I trust him completely. Thank you Dr. Matthew Wert.
Best in the business!!
Very nice and friendly doctor.
My visit with Matthew was outstanding. He was a great listener as I described the issues I was having and he asked thoughtful questions to improve his understanding of my problems. He seemed to genuinely care about my well-being and concerned about the pain I've been enduring. After his evaluation he proceeded to discuss his diagnosis in a lot of detail, even drawing diagrams to show me the source of my pain and to help me improve my understanding of the issues I was experiencing. Afterwards his recommendations for treatment were comprehensive as he discussed initial options first, before proceeding to explain what would happen if those options were not successful. He proceeded to explain each following treatment option with the absolute option being surgery. Great visit with a great doctor. The only minor issue was the wait time and the office management which seemed a little out of sorts from my viewing position in the waiting area. I waited 50 minutes and another patient that was before me apparently had waited an hour as I overheard the patient asking the staff when the doctor would see him. So make sure you budget that extra time into your schedule. That said, the extra time, while inconvenient, was more than made up by the quality of the visit.
Waited over an hour in the room, but once I saw Dr Wert (and his resident Dr Ackerman) it was great. Very informative and very nice/helpful.
Happy to explain the details when a simple "everything's ok" would have sufficed. So awesome to have a doc that cares about assessing the patient.
Exceptional doctor!! Dr. Wert listen to my reason for my visit with him today. Dr. Wert made a few assessments followed by some suggestions. He was knowledgeable and made the appropriate recommendations for care. Dr. Wert will be highly recommended to family and friends for care. Thank you Dr. Wert for your care today.
I loved Dr Wert. He was extremely professional and thorough and answered all my questions. Unfortunately he was running over an hour late and that was frustrating but when I met him I realized that a) He took his time explaining everything so well, he must do that for all his patients and b) there was a resident training alongside him so there was probably more of a delay because he was also mentoring that day. All in all, I'd give 5 stars across the board. :)
So welcoming and friendly! and of course very knowledgeable!
He was very professional, he knew exactly what my problem was. The staves are friendly. the waiting time was a bid long but it was worth it
Very professional and listened intently to all my concerns and needs.
Love this doc. Personable, knowledgeable, explains things well.
For the first time ever… I was not given the run around... He got straight to the point and asked why I was there… He didn't give me any assignments that felt like they had nothing to do with what I was there for... They got me in and out as soon as they possibly could. I would definitely recommend this doctor .
EXCELLENT DOCTOR, WORTH THE WAIT
Truly enjoyed Dr Matthew, he was kind and right to the point. He was aware of my pain and tried his very best to be gentle. Also his staff was excellent. I will recommend him to everyone.
Dr Wert, is very friendly and takes time to explain things and answer any questions. He even agreed to come into the NY office to see me on a day that he usually is not there. I was very impressed by how I was treated by him and his staff and would definitely recommend to friends and family.
One of the best doctor's appointments I've had in a very long time if at all. His staff is great. Dr. Wert is very hands on, very informative. He told me what was causing my pain and showed me how to improve my knees. X-ray technician was very quick and thorough and friendly. Haven't had so much completed in an hour at a doctor's appointments. Definitely recommend this office.
He was very professional and attentive to my concerns. I felt heard and he spoke to me in a way that I understood.
Dr wert is very friendly very pleasant, and he hash help me a lot.
I am very happy with the outcome. I had been suffering from hip pain for 6 years, frustrated from seeing three doctors and none could tell me I had Tronchantic Bursitis, something so simple to treat but very painful!!! He took the time to listen to my situation, did an assessment, X-rays and later Dr. Wert spent time to explain in detail what the problem was with my hip. I found him and his staff to be good listeners, and excellent medical professionals who are sensitive to their patient needs. I will highly recommend him to anyone who needs Orthopedic care.
The staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Wert was thorough, knowledgeable and caring. I have to follow up w him after an MRI.
Doctor Wert is awesome. He is very personable and knowledgeable. Offers the best treatment and honest with the best course of action. Only downside - the front desk is not very friendly and the wait can be a bit long.
If you have a sport injury, this doctor is the best!
Excellent doctor! Always a pleasure to see him!
I love doctor Matthew he really care for the patients. Will recommend to my family & friends.
Very friendly. Explained thoroughly what was happening and why.
Dr Wert explained everything very well and was friendly & courteous. The wait time was minimal and his staff was very nice.
AMAZING AND WONDERFUL GREAT DOCTOR!!!!
I chose Dr. Wert based on past positive reviews and wasn't disappointed. Dr. Wert identified the problem, explained it in detail, even drawing a picture of the bones of the shoulder, and listed options for what to do next. He fully answered my questions and concerns. Really an excellent doctor!
After wandering around for 15min trying to find this office in a disorienting building maze, I waited in the waiting room for what felt like an hour. Finally, got to see the doctor. Told him I needed an MRI scan of a shoulder injury. He spent 10min looking at it and talking to me and then said, "yup, you need an MRI scan." They don't do those scans there. His office said they had to call some other office to schedule the scan once my insurance pre-approved it. After multiple follow-ups with this office, I was never contacted, my MRI was never scheduled, and now they're billing me tons for that entirely useless office visit. I know the healthcare industry is messed up, but this is ridiculous.
Attentive, charismatic, knowledgeable--what else can you ask for? :-D happy patient!
It was speedy and professional.
If you have a sports injury, Dr. Wert is the best!
Dr. Wert was very nice and helped me out right away. He listened to my problem and showed me on a diagram just what exactly is going on. Very nice and understanding. I would go back to him.
MD is professional and knowledgeable.
He is the BEST doctor.
I found out what my condition was within a few minutes. Matthew clearly explained to me what caused my condition. I am now going to physical therapy.
Matthew Wert is amazing! Really cares about his patients and does everything he needs to help his patients!
This has been my second follow up appointment with Dr Wert and have had no problems with him or his staff, the only problem was he was coming from Manhattan and was delayed by about 45 minutes, other than that, excellent doctor who I would highly recomment with a wonderful attitude towards his patience
Charismatic individual who tells you and shows you what might be bothering you, but is hard to get ahold of and wait time is later than expected at Tribeca
He was very sincere, friendly, and an overall professional.
Only had to wait that long because I was late. And they were super understanding.
Once I got into see him, I could not have asked for a better doctor. He listened, helped me, was just wonderful. Can't ask for more!
I definitely have to say this is one of the best doctor's I have ever encountered. First time meeting him today and it felt as if he's been my doctor for years. He pretty much knew, I was nervous and he was able to answer all my questions without hurry. He took time to hear me out. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. By the way, the staff were very professional and a beautiful office.
I took multiple suggestion because of a knee problem and by far Dr Matthew was one of the best orthopedic surgeon I visited. The meeting was not long. To the point and suggested remedies based on my preference.
Yes I will defendly recommend him.He was very nice and explain everything to me the way I will understand.
When I got to my appointment, there was barely a wait as I filled out my paperwork prior to. The doctor kept the meeting really light even though there was a looming acl tear. He was very efficient and did not seem rushed at all. I did not feel like just any other patient, even if he used the same routine on everyone else.
Great, friendly, and knowledgeable doctor. The wait was a bit long and the front staff in the Manhattan office are a bit slow but definitely worth the wait with this doctor.
I was very happy & pleased with my appt. with Dr Wert today. He was friendly but not overly, he made me feel at ease and i had confidence in what he had to say. Office wait was an hour, just hope that's not the norm, but i will be going back.
Dr. Wert was great. Very knowledgable and thorough in our consultation about my knee and shoulder.
my waiting time was between 30 and 60 minutes because i was given a 12 30 appointment and dr wert doesn;t come in until l:00 so therefore the wait time was a little longer than anticipated. Other than that my overall review would be excellent, he is a very caring and understanding doctor who explains everything to you and I would recommend him.
Great doctor for my son's difficult sports injury, but be prepared to wait at least an hour! However, he's worth the wait for a great doctor.
He is amazing! My previous orthopedic was supposed to send mri and exrays over week ago; rather than having me rebook he and his nurse went out of their way to get them ( called the medical records dpt several times...) told me that he would get them tomorrow and call me as it is very Important for him to diagnose me as my previous doctor said I need surgery. He is calling me after work tomorrow to let me know what's going on!
Great, very informative, looking forward to next visit
Excellent services. The doctors was very professional. I will recommend my family and friends!!!
Great interaction with Dr Wert. He came up with a great treatment plan for my knee, taking into account my busy schedule and upcoming travel. I am a very happy patient.
Outside of the long wait I thought that Dr Wert was very professional, kind and understanding I would recommend him to others as well as continue to use him his way of treating his patients clearly made up for the wait time
Fantastic. Diagnosis was quick, clearly explained and a meaningful course of further investigation and treatment was identified right away. Very happy.
The doctor is always friendly, caring and warm. I came to his office due to an athletic injury, I heard that he is an expert in this field, and I was not disappointed. Thank you! I highly recommend Dr. Wert.
Great doctor who is also athletic and understands adversity of older athletes. I highly recommend seeing him. Plus he is multi lingual.
My visit with Dr Wert went very well except he was late coming into the Ralph Ave office due to a problem at his other office in Manhattan. He was very professional,explained exactly what my problem was, gave me a script for some medication and explained that if it was not better what our next course of action would be.I would receommend Dr Wert to friend or family and believe he is very knowledgeable in his field. I had to cancel my appointment at the Brighton Beach office but will be seeing him at the end of the month for a followup appointment
Absolutely love this doctor. Very professional. The only negative part is waiting, but worth it.
I was referred to Dr Wert by another orthopedist for a cartilage injury in my knee. After doing my research I found out that Dr Wert is one of the few surgeons in NY that does complicated cartilage transplant procedures.I could not have been happier with the result of my surgery, and I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Honestly, I couldn't have been more impressed. Reasonable wait time, professional, and informative. As a marathon runner with numerous questions about my injuries, I found Dr. Wert to be very approachable and knowledgable. It was definitely reassuring to finally find such a GREAT doctor, (and to actually feel as if he cares about my injuries as much as I do). (I guess it makes sense why he's the Director of Sports Medicine at his hospital!) A friendly, organized and helpful staff, and a brilliant surgeon with great bedside manners... I would definitely recommend Dr. Wert and his staff to anyone. (Oh, and he's super funny too.)
He was very friendly and personable. He was instructing a student at the time but it did not interfere with my care. I would recommend him again.
I had to wait about an hour to be seen but the doctor was very apologetic and very nice. He explained everything really well and gave me some good options. I think the front desk could do a better job of informing patients about the office wait & updates.
I scheduled my appointment for 12:30 and I was only called at 1:40. Dr Wert did apologize for keeping me waiting, but no one was there to give me any information on how much longer I'd have to wait for the appointment when I was sitting in the waiting room. The appointment went rather faster than I would have expected. He didn't want to see any of my previous exams - which I could access online - and the assessment was also faster than I thought it would be. Other than that, he's a very nice guy, talkative and open. Appointment took about 20 minutes.
My wait time was less than 30 minutes and the staff was very professional. Dr. Wert did a great job assessing my pain and worked in a timely manner to give me a diagnosis and treatment. It was my first time using zocdoc to find a doctor and I'm glad I choose Dr. Wert. I will Highly recommended to friends and family in need of a great orthopedist
He's knowledgeable but as responsible as a two year old.
Very friendly and explain things easily.
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Wert. He was highly personable and easy to engage with. I visited him for shoulder pain that had not lessened after 6 months of trying to rest it. While the pain wasn't unbearable, it was getting in the way of my physical activity and quality of life. I felt really respected in that he acknowledged how frustrating this might be and offered me a treatment plan (with various offers) that would bring me quick relief and allow me to return to my activities. I thought he was terrific and would highly recommend him to others. My only issue was with the wait time (30 min), but this was due to the disorganized staff and online system at the location he was seeing patients at the day of my appointment. He apologized for the confusion and explained that they are working out some issues at this new location. Again, I thought he was great!
Really cool dude, very respectful and articulate. Was a pleasure! The wait was a bit long though...but that was not his fault in any way (it was probably just a busy day).
he was great with alternative solution not like most dr that just want to just do surgery instead of trying other methods two thumbs
He is absolutely wonderful and knowledgable!!!
Attentive, focused & informative. The office was empty but I still had to wait for 50 minutes.
Excellent. Friendly, great communicator. Got right to the point but didn't rush through anything.
Did a wonderful job! Was polite, respectful, patient, funny. I would highly recommend him.
Dr Wert is very very nice. He is easy to talk to and explains everything in great detail. I was extremely comfortable with him. I highly recommend Dr Wert to anyone who needs an orthopedic doctor.
He was extremely nice. He made me feel very comfortable. He explained everything in detail. I highly recommend him.
Good Doctor definitely trying me to get rid of my knee problem.
He was fantastic - great bedside manner and I really felt he listened and understood. The office was slammed due to being right after the holidays. Still worth the wait and I know that's not how it usually is.
