I have been to several knee doctors over the past 30 years and I learned more today about my knee and my knee issues and treatment options than I ever learned in the past. He was excellent and helped me map out a treatment plan for the next several years.

Dr. Wenger is the ultimate professional BUT seems like more of a friend who is interested in anything I have to discuss about my "problems" and answer ANY questions I have. He also makes suggestions that help me to improve faster.He was recommended to me by another surgeon who said, "If I had to have a knee replaced, this is the man I would want doing it." That was good enough for me and I'm so glad I came to Dr. Wenger! Barbara S

I've seen Dr. Wenger for the past 4 months for my injury. It was such a nerve-racking experience trying to choose a surgeon but I'm sure I made the right choice. Dr. Wenger and his staff have been great every timeI've seen them. From the front office staff to the x-ray tech everyone's friendly, polite and helpful. Someone from the finance/billing department walked me through ALL of the charges and fees that might come from all parties involved and how my insurance would deal with them. I knew exactly what I was going to be paying out of pocket before I every had the procedure! Everyone who sees my scar and x-rays tells me it looks great and I found a great surgeon. I couldn't agree more! Thanks Dr. Wenger and staff for taking such good care of me!

I think he is a fine doctor and he listens well. The only problem I have is that I do not like getting a script through a pharmacy provider. It wastes a lot of time in my opinion. In fact, Istill have not gotten my script filled and still in the process of contacting the doctor's office to get a written script so I can fill it on my own.

I personally referred several co workers to Dr. Wenger. I like that he takes the time to explain things to you, gives you options, and offers what he feels is the best treatment plan....no question is left unanswered, and he seemswilling to address one's concerns. You never feel rushed through or just a number while in his office.

On Sept 2nd I called to cancel my appointment because of a misunderstanding by email about the office location and the office staff assured me that my appointment was indeed at the Westport office which is quite near to my home.I am happy that I kept my appointment because I had injured my hand the night before at a store and Dr Wenger took time to examine the wound and have his nurse apply antibiotic ointment, recommend home treatment and contact my primary care physician's office for a referral for a test to determine what was causing pain in my wrist and hand since steroid injections in the carpal tunnel did not lessen the pain and numbness in my hand.
