Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Wowk is awesome and took a lot of time. I trust his medical opinion and it is aligns with what previous doctors have recommended - just that he is not pushing surgery and tries a more balanced approach. But I don't trust the front desk staff! They are horrible and lied to me in two occasions.
Dr. Wowk doesn't listen. He talks over you. He doesn't pay attention to what you're saying about how you're feeling. He seems to think anyone, no matter the reason, who is on narcotic pain medication, is a pill seeker. Not that he said it, but his attitude speaks for itself. He did a good job on my leg surgery but other than that, not so good @ bedside manner.
Everyone was courteous and professional.
Dr. Wowk is very personable and no BS. He gets to the point, clearly explains the treatment, and clearly explains the next steps. I look forward to my follow-up appointment. I was very surprised that as a new patient that it did not take several weeks to get an appointment. The staff is friendly, the facility is well maintained and the parking outside and seating inside are ample. I don't like doctors' offices but I enjoyed my visit here.
Was taken quickly. Triage nurse quick and efficient. X-ray quick and good. Long wait to then see doctor. Office failed to call prescription into pharmacy !! Ugh.
The visit all-in-all went fine. Victor Wowk seems to be a great doctor and a very nice person. The front office staff can be more friendlier.
Dr. Wowk was pleasant enough, but he seemed rushed. I had to wait a long time at each visit. The staff is okay but not very friendly.
The front desk staff was so rude
The doctor office did not receive the online docs I filled with zocdoc, so I spent time to fill them again. The doctor was very professional and explained every thing very well. I recommend him
I respect Dr Wowk's high degree of professionalism. He is very good at explaining complex medical terminology in layman's terms as well.
I have been a patient of Dr Wowk for a number of years. He is highly professional and I trust his judgement.
I need more time to judge the treatment that I receive.
Very informative. He answered all the questions I went to ask.
