Verified Patient Reviews
Occasionally, I have to bring my 84-year old Mom in for steroid shots in her shoulders. Dr. Wenger is also so sweet and gentle with her, and also likes to kid around with her, too, which she loves. He's a gem.
Extremely polite, but personable. Great attitude and very encouraging. Will recommend all friends to go to him for treatment if needed. Thanks for your help. By the way, You have a fantastic staff.!!!
Great information provided by Dr. Wenger and his staff. Answered all my questions and made me feel much better about the surgery on my knee. Even gave me a wonderful referral for my back issues as well. Thanks Doc!!

Dr. Wenger is very nice and took the time to listen to my concerns. He presented the best treatment option for me and I was in and out in less than an hour. The office staff is very nice and make it easy to check in! Dr. Wenger's nurse was not the nicest, but maybe I just caught her on an off day.

He is vary good.
Love the doctor; hate the wait time.
Doctor Wagner was absolutely wonderful explained everything and wait time was minimal. I highly recommend.
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 time I'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!
My visit to Dr. Wenger's office was comfortable, informative, efficient, and encouraging. Dr. Wenger was professional and friendly. Instructions were clear and all questions were answered.
Dr. Wenger was very prompt and friendly. He answered all my questions and provided clear instructions for my continued recovery.
Dr. Wenger is very professional and explains everything very clearly. He listens well to questions and is honest in his answers. But I leave thinking he's not only my doctor but my friend! Barbara S.
Very professional answered all of our questions
Dr. Wenger was very personable and friendly. He answered all of our questions and gave clear instructions for post surgery care and my next scheduled appointment.
Since I've been going to the Fort Worth office, the wait time has been very short. Regardless, Dr. Wenger has been very friendly at every visit, yet also very professional. He takes time to connect with you and ensure that you have all the information you need. I highly recommend him!
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, I still 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 seems willing to address one's concerns. You never feel rushed through or just a number while in his office.
Dr Wenger and his staff have been outstanding from my first visit several months ago to my last appointment yesterday. I highly recommend him!
I really like Dr. Wenger, great Doc!
Very easy to talk to...very patient. Would recommend to others.
I have known Dr Wenger close to 5 years. He fixed my shoulder (rotator cuff) and recently a torn tendon in my knee. His bedside manner is wonderful, his staff is also fabulous. If you need surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Wenger!
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.

I have seen Dr. Wenger at lest three (3) times now. Always a pleasant visit. Always takes great care of me, as does his staff.
Great guy real professional good sense of humor kept me not so nervous over all im pleased he is my Dr. His staff is great to
He is extremely professional and friendly. He has your best interest in mind. Hopefully I'll never have to see him again, but if I get injured (again!), he is the one I will go see!!
Dr. Wenger is warm, caring, and competent. I highly recommend him.
My first visit went really well...very minimal wait, personable, knowledgeable doctor, efficient staff...After one visit, I would definitely recommend Dr. Wenger.
He is a very caring doctor and he listens to you, when you tell him about your health concerns you may be experiencing.
Nice but to the point. Great bedside manor. I appreciated the face he showed me the options I had and once I committed he was all in!
Great Doc, highly recommend.
Dr Wenger is very knowledgable and he gave me some very good direction on how to handle the problems I am having with my back.
Though the wait was a bit long, I found Dr. Wenger to be friendly, caring, professional, and highly skilled. He listened to everything I had to say and included my preferences in determining how to move forward. He came highly recommended and I would definitely recommend him to others.
Dr. Wenger and staff have been phenomenal throughout the whole process so far!!
Dr.Wenger is a NM excellent doctor..
He is great. My second surgery with him. Not that i enjoy having surgery, but if you need it, Dr. Wenger is my choice. Plus his initials are SAW so that is pretty cool.
Perfect, very knowledgeable...met my expectations
Very good information and instructions on how to get beat and followup.
Dr. Wenger is very professional, very knowledgeable and very pleasant. He explains things simply and makes you feel completely at ease. I admire him greatly
Good was easy to talk to and explained situation well
He has the greatest bedside manner! He also explains everything before he does it so you know what to expect. The staff there know what they are doing so you are in and out and on with your day with one less issue, even when there are several patients in the lobby. We've never left there unsure of what is going on or what to expect and follow-up appointments are not dreaded with a big chunk of the day gone only to be in the same state you were in when you got there, something that is all but gone with doctors these days. I cannot encourage you enough to place your care in this man's hands, you will not regret it. He has carried us through a process, not just one or two visits, so this reccomendation comes with experience. Love this doc!!
I had surgery for a torn meniscus 6 years ago and although I liked my orthopedic, I just thought our communication was lacking. So, when my knee problems flared up a year ago, I started searching for a new orthopedic surgeon. (I had been told that knee replacement was in my future.) I liked what I read on the internet about Dr. Scott Wenger and TIOS, so I scheduled an appointment. We tried injections - even the injection that is supposed to give relief for up to a year, but I did not respond well. So, I went under the knife in January for a complete replacement. Dr. Wenger was great during the entire process. I really like the fact that he came to see me several times while in the hospital and always has taken time to listen. I feel he has my best interest! Just had my 9-week post-surgery follow-up. Surgery was successful...still working with PT to get back to 100% and have a ways to go, but I'm walking so much better than I was pre-surgery and I'm feeling good again. Would not hesitate to recommend Scott Wenger!
The and staff was very professional and attentive. We had about a five minute wait after we turned in the initial paperwork. Dr. Wenger was a breath of fresh air. My mother fell and broke her arm. She has had some doctors that left her feeling like they didn't care. He has restored her confidence in doctors and she left with a clear understanding of her injury and the recovery process. His professional demeanor and delivery is refreshing. Thanks Doc!
Excellent Doctor! He took extra time to fully explain and answer all of my questions. Based upon my one visit with him, I highly recommend him!
I liked Scott Wenger from our first visit! The orthopedic surgeon I had been seeing has a good reputation, but I never felt like he had my best interest. Quite the contrary with Dr. Wenger! We tried injections to the knee, but nothing was working for me and knee replacement was the only option. I especially appreciated Dr. Wenger's positive attitude before and after surgery. He reassured me that people heal differently, but also inspired me to be disciplined with the therapy. I really appreciate his demeanor. I'm at six weeks post surgery and pretty much on track with where I need to be. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Scott Wenger to anyone seeking an orthopedic surgeon.
He told me about all my options and made a recommendation. I have a follow up in one month. Very nice people and I really like Dr Wenger!
Breaking bones, tearing ligaments, any kind of repairs or surgeries suck... might as well have the best Surgeon in Texas! 3 surgeries ~ 150% healed + better than before! Wouldn't trust anyone else ~ I deserve the best! btw... his staff is pretty incredible too!
Excellent patient relations and explains things is terms you can understand. Seems very skilled and gets right to the heart of the matter, which I really appreciated!
He is very kind & caring. He is an excellent communitor@ takes time to explain any advice he gives me.
Dr. Wenger was wonderful! Two co-workers gave him very high recommendation. I was very unhappy with my previous doctor so was very happy when I was able to get an appointment right away. Dr. Wenger spent time explaining all the options and was able fix my knee issue that very day. The staff was so nice too! If you are looking for a great doctor, then give Dr. Wenger and his office a call!
Dr. Wenger was awesome! The office staff are very friendly! My 14 son broke his arm and he was very honest on his recommendation for repairing it. My son is an athlete and we wanted the best solution. Dr. Wenger communication was great! He explained everything in detail to us and my son on the day of surgery. He even called that night to check on him! I highly recommend him!
I really liked the office and the doctor was great. He was professional and yet down to earth. He listened to me while I explained my condition and then he provided me options. We came up with a plan. I would highly recommend him. As a retired Chiropractor, I feel I am experienced in evaluating how a doctor treats his patients. I was very happy with my experience.
Informative. Comfortable. Very nice staff.
Dr. Wengert is very good with children, explains everything very well. Very friendly, knowledgeable. The entire staff is awesome!
He has great personal appeal. The First Dr I have seen who did not say "Well at your age" or Well u do have Artherites". He used a more courteous way to explain my condition and treatment. Has always been courteous and patient. Doesn't make you feel like your on a 14 min timer
He was professional. Gave me the facts I needed to make a decision on surger. Very personable and knowledgeable.
very informative and helpful to me.
I have had 3 orthopedic surgeries performed by Dr. Wenger, with beyond excellent results. Besides being a brilliant Surgeon, he truly cares about his patients and their 100% recovery. Not only do I recommend him to family, co-workers, friends, etc., I encourage them to be cared for by the very best, Dr. Wenger!
I've seen Dr. Wenger multiple times and he is always professional and very personable. He explains the condition, treatment and progress well and despite being a busy surgeon, never makes you feel rushed or forgets who you are. I was incredibly impressed with my surgery results and would highly recommend him. Office staff is very friendly as well! Office wait times can be a bit long, but overall worth it.
This guy is my go-to. Used to go to UTSW for all things Orthopedic, but wait time to get in was brutal. Dr. Wenger can typically see me same day if he's not in surgery, or next day. I have had several situations recently which I needed his guidance on; potentially broken toes and sprained ankle. Each time, I was shown the utmost in courtesy & kindness. I was in & out both times in less than an hour with X-rays! Dr. Wenger is now my go-to for anything Orthopedic. Cannot say enough good about my experience with him, and his staff.
This was my first visit to the office, took 10 minutes or so to fill out a few forms, got called back right away. The x-ray technician was a very nice young man who carried a conversation with me while he x-rayed my foot. Dr. Wenger than visited with me to go over the results and give recommendations, it was refreshing to see a doctor spend a few minutes with me to answer questions. I usually get a quick pop in and out from most doctors, they make it too obvious they are in a rush and not very caring, but this was not the case with Dr. Wenger.
Dr. Wenger did a thorough physical examination of my knee, explained his diagnosis thoroughly and offered his recommendation for treatment but offered options and said that ultimately he wanted me to be comfortable moving forward with treatment and left it up to me. I trusted his assessment and we moved forward with his recommended treatment.
Dr. Wenger was kind, thoughtful, and through.
Dr. Wenger is a great surgeon. He made sure we understood each step of the process, this helped me cope. His bedside manner is great. I feel very confident in his abilities. I would recommend him to my friends and family.
We like Dr. Wenger but takes awhile to relax after being so frustrated by being made to wait an hour to be seen. When asked to arrive early to complete paperwork and you do, you certainly don't expect to be kept an hour after your scheduled time. This has happened twice now.
I like him!
I felt like he understood what I was trying to convey about the problems with my knee. I had seen another physician in a different practice who didn't understand what I was trying to say.
Everyone at the clinic is professional & very easy to work with.
Dr. Scott Wenger was empathetic, patient, willing to answer all of my questions. He made me feel safe and secure. He made eye contact with me all the time and was very attentive to my needs. He will definitely be my doctor from now on.
Best experience in a medical facility!!!
Wonderful! He is such a personable, caring doctor! I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Wenger took the time necessary to explain what my problem was and what my course of treatment would be. He talked to me, not at me. Very personable.
I am very much pleased with the care I received from Dr Wenger. He took his time to explain in "plain English" the problem I experienced with my knee, gave me options, and did not rush me into choosing surgery. I had total knee replacement surgery in April and just 3 months later, walking without walker or cane, stopped using pain meds 1 month ago.
I thought Dr. Wenger was therough and courteous . I was impressed with the visit.
Great bed side manners and VERY concerned about his patients
Dr Wenger is thorough and speaks on your level, very nice
Very helpful with explanation of expectations and that recovery for an 88 year old that broke her leg should not be rushed.
The wait is insane I went at 1:00 Pm for a 1:30 Appointment did not get seen till 3:00 Pm, I am sure an emergency room is faster than this.
We were seen right away and Dr. Wenger was very cordial. I would highly recommend him to others.
The entire staff was very courteous and friendly. Dr. Wenger was thorough and presented multiple options for treatment. There was no pressure to select one treatment over another, it was left entirely up to me.
As always, Dr. Wenger was friendly and professional. He clearly stated what my status was and how we would proceed. I feel very confident in this physician.
Dr. Wenger is very kind, patient, and knowledgeable.
We just met briefly. He assessed my situation and gave me options. He was knowledgeable, informative, and friendly.
Dr. Wenger listens when other docs don't. He sees the patient as a human being not just another appt. He took the time to look at my history as well as my current problem. Really felt like he cared. Great doctor. Thanks dr. Wenger!!
Dr. Wenger is an outstanding physician and human being. He's professional, informative, and you never feel rushed.

Great bedside manner with my teenager. Appreciated that he gave my teen some choices in his treatment so that my son could be part of his care.
Dr. Wenger was very personable!!! Loved how he explained things and made me feel comfortable. He seemed very knowledgeable about the problem I have and how to repair it. I would not hesitate to refer him to others and am glad my doctor referred me to him for my orthopedic needs.
Dr. Wenger, M.D. was very informative and did a good job of explaining what to expect due to the injury. His exam was spot on and he wasn't in a hurry. He requested a follow up visit to see if there were any changes. His charges were very reasonable for a consultation. His office is easy to find although a little short on the parking spots. I would recommend him to my family and friends. Tonya
Took excellent care of my daughter's arm after her car accident. We highly recommend Dr. Wenger.
He tells me what the problem is and what can be done. He is very personable.
Very knowledgable and patient with answering all my questions. Making sure I understood his instructions on care and following up with my physician a few weeks after returning home.
As a new patient, everything went smoothly. The x-Ray tech was quick and efficient. Dr Wenger tested, evaluated and compared his findings to the. X-rays. He stated the options. Answered any questions in a way I felt confident in moving forward. I would recommend him to a friend.
A friend/co-worker referred him to me and I am so glad I went to Dr Wenger, great personality made me feel very at ease. And since I will be 65 in Feb my body isn't what it used to be, So I am cautious of Dr.'s just wanting to do surgery to just to do surgery. I did not get that feeling with Dr. Wenger. And am looking forward to my next visits.
It was perfect.
Very pleased with the surgery and the follow up. Highly recommend Dr. Wenger for any and all ortho needs.
Dr. Wenger is through and provides your options. He will make recommendations but final decision is up to you. He is professional in all aspects and at the same time warm making you feel comfortable.
Excellent communication, he explains options for treatment, answers all questions, and is one of the few doctors who listens to his patient rather than look at his watch...
He was personable and explained what i needed to know. Excellent bed side manner.
Very professional did a great job on my knee
Very professional personable and attentive to patients well being. Awesome staff support!!!
Great bedside manner with my 13 year old son! Factual, relative and sensitive!

My visit with the doctor was very pleasant and the doctor was very professional and gave me all the information that I needed.
DOCTOR SCOTT WAS KIND AND MAY BE A GOOD ORTHOPEDIC BUT WE NEEDED A NEW DOCTOR TO TAKE MY MOTHERS CASE. THIS TRIP WAS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY WITH NO RESULTS TO THE RECOMMENDATION BY HER PHYSICIAN TO YOUR PHYSICALITY !!
Dr. Wenger is very kind and courteous and his staff are wonderful! I drive 26 miles each way to see this physician, and I'm happy to do it.
Great follow-up visit. Very pleased with Dr. Wenger - highly recommend.
He was compassionate with my pain levels and let md rest for a few minutes when the suture removal became too much.
He listened to my concerns. We discussed my options and he honored my decision. I am satisfied with the results. I will go back to this doctor and I will recommend him to my friends and family.

He was very nice and very professional.
I love my Dr. He's awesome
Love the Doc, don't love the wait time
Dr. Wenger has done a great job of evaluating and treating my injury. The wait times have always been short, and the entire staff has been polite and professional.
I had a low level of confidence in a positive outcome for my situation, but Dr. Wenger and his Physical Therapy team really went to work and I am back to a "good as new" to the point where there are some days I don't even notice the injury.
Doctor and staff were nice, courteous and fast. He actually took the time to talk to me and explain the diagnosis. I would definitely go back if I have any more problems.
