Dr. Werries treated me for a rotator cuff tear about 3 years ago. I would recommend him and his staff for any treatment. He has also treated my son and grandchildren for various sports injuries. Probably the best doctor I have ever dealt with. Very knowledgeable and personable..
in Jacksonville, IL |
I had a hip replacement ten months ago. Dr. Werries spent time explaining the procedure so that I knew what to expect from the beginning to the follow-up. He spent as much time needed with me and I appreciated his care and thoughtfulness. I would recommend him to anyone. I was out of the hospital in two days and opted to go to the hospital for therapy in two more. I am feeling great and have had no problems recuperating.

Dr. Werries is a tremendous doctor ! His thoroughness and bedside manner is second to none. He has been a tremendous asset to our community for many years. Sad to see him leave.
in Jacksonville, IL |
As a medical professional myself, I have the advantage of being in contact with patients of multiple orthopedic surgeons. The positive outcomes and comments from his patients led me to seek Dr. Werries not only when I was in need of orthopedic surgery, but also my husband. We both experienced those same positive results and would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Werries to anyone in need of orthopedic care.
in Jacksonville, IL |
Dr Werries performed total knee replacements on both my knees in the past three years. He is an excellent physician and surgeon who truly cares about his patients. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Werries was the doctor for both my husband and me. Over the past 3 years, he performed 2 surgeries on my husband and 1 on me. He and his staff were outstanding. Everyone was willing to spend the time to help us understand what was needed and why. They were caring and conscientious before, during and after our procedures. We couldn't have asked for better care from anyone than what was given by Dr. Werries and his team.
in Winchester, IL |
I have had two hip replacements performed by Dr Werries. He thoroughly explained the procedure and the steps to take for a complete recovery. He listened to my concerns and answered my questions. I have completely recovered and doing really well. He is a compassionate and caring Doctor, and he will be missed as he moving to Florida. I would highly recommend Dr.Werries as an orthopedic surgeon.
in Jacksonville, IL |
I have had Bilateral Hip replacement by Dr. Werries. I would highly recommend him as an Orthopedic surgeon. He explained the procedure in detail. Talk to me about rehab and limitation that I would have after surgery. The time an care he took explaining and answering questions took a lot of anxiety and worry off my mind. Dr. Werries is a caring professional that gets to know his patients and looks out for their best interest.
in Arenzville, IL |
I cannot say enough positive, reasurring things about Dr. Werries to anyone considering a knee replacement. I am 67 and he has done a total knee replacement on each of my knees, one year apart. He is thorough in his preparation of the patient prior to surgery, very attentive during hospital stay and vigilant in his follow-up. Dr. Werries meets the highest standard of professionalism which is why his success rate is so remarkable. He is also a friendly person who genuinely loves people.
in Jacksonville, IL |
Dr. Werries is the consummate professional physician. He accurately diagnosed and surgically repaired my torn rotator cuff. Dr. Werries easily explained my medical condition and presented options to correct the rotator cuff tear. Dr. Werries is engaging and takes the time to get to know you as a patient. He patiently listened to and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Werries.

The best orthopedic surgeon in West Central Illinois! He has exceptional skills! I have been his patient for over 5 years and he has taken care of me with the utmost care and compassion. He listened to me and together we formed a care plan tailored to my specific needs. He treated his office staff very well and the staff were just as courteous as Dr. Werries. I am recommending Dr. Werries to any and all. I wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor!
Jacksonville, Il |
Dr. B Werries is an outstanding surgeon with an equally outstanding bedside manner. His course of action to multiple visits for myself or for my children in sports was effective and quickly put into place to maximize healing as quickly as possible. I appreciate his skills as a medical professional and as an active part of our community.
in Beardstown,IL |
Dr. Werries replaced my left knee, also fixed my left broken arm. Have not had a single problem with either one since the surgeries. He has a great bedside manner and is very personable. I would highly recommend him for anybody that needs a reliable and trustworthy orthopedic surgeon. He is truly going to be missed at his Jacksonville, Il practice. He is just wonderful and I can't say enough about it.
in Jacksonville, IL |
Dr. Werries is a highly dedicated and respected physician. He has treated five of our family members with ailments ranging from a sore toe to a hip replacement. All with superb results. His professional yet friendly and reassuring demeanor is the trademark of his 18 years of service. A member of our Illinois family will possibly need replacement surgery in the future - she will be making a trip to Dr. Werries practice in Florida if that day arrives!
in Jacksonvile, il |
Dr. Werries did my knee surgery and have had wonderful results. Following his very clear instructions and having all my concerns and questions answered in a patient and concerned manner, has benefited me with exceptional results. I have also seen him for other arthritic problems. Dr. Werries and his staff are always exceptional.
Jacksonville, IL |
Dr. Barry Werries is really the best. Very kind and generally cares about patients. He is moving to Florida and I want everyone down there to know what a wonderful Dr they are getting. I have many friends that have been to him and they are extremely sorry he is leaving.
in Jacksonville, IL |
Dr. Werries is a wonderful orthopedist. He is professional, and he truly listens. He is genuinely concerned and clearly presents all treatment options. All related questions are addressed.
Very professional, knowledgeable, personable and friendly. Will take his time to explain problems, concerns, tests, and/or surgeries. He will be greatly missed in Jacksonville.
in Jacksonville, IL |
Dr. Werries replaced my left knee in 2015. I did the exercises he recommended before and after surgery and had a complete and rapid recovery. Dr. Werries is a talented and compassionate surgeon who gives encouragement an assistance to his patients. I recommend him without reservation and am honored that he accepted me as a patient. Very sorry he is leaving the area.
in Jacksonville, IL |
As Director of Volunteers at Passavant Hospital for 39 years, I observe Barry Werries as an outstanding physician in all ways. His relationship with the hospital staff and patients are excellent. I have personally had two knee replacements with Dr. Werries and had excellent results. He is very supportive to his patients.

Dr. Werries treated me for a total knee replacement, and I had excellent results. He was very personable and thorough in explaining the treatment and procedures. Even the PT's could tell that he was the doctor just by looking at the surgery site. I needed a total shoulder replacement. He did not hesitate to refer me to another surgeon that specialized in shoulder replacements, as he felt that would be the best course of treatment for me. He is going to be missed here in Illinois.
in Jacksonville, IL |
I have been a patient of Dr Werries for several years. I had a knee replacement and my husband had a hip replacement. We felt prepared but not pressured to have the surgeries. His follow-up care was excellent, he was always willing to spend as much time as needed for discussion or questions and before deciding on the surgeries, we tried shots that helped. When more rehab was needed, he didn't hesitate to recommend it. We always enjoyed seeing Dr. Werries in his office or in the community.
in Roodhouse, Illinois |
I have known Dr.Werries for the past 18 years, first as a RN working on an ortho floor providing care for his patients then as a patient myself. Dr Werries is a very knowledgeable professional person. I have had three total joint replacements, the third one being in July 2017. I trust him implicitly. He is a very compassionate doctor. I have not had any post operative complications with any surgery he has performed, whether it be a minor procedure to the joint replacements. Excellent Dr.!
New Berlin, Il |
Dr. Werries has been my orthopedic doctor for the last 20 years and is an excellent surgeon. I have had arthroscopic surgery on each knee and this year had both knees replaced with excellent success. I recommend Dr. Werries for any orthopedic work.
in Jacksonville, IL |
Dr. Barry Werries is THE best?? You will never find a more genuine and caring Dr . Dr. Werries has done both knee replacements for myself and my husband. He oiled not touch my husband for the surgeries until he had a surgical procedure done on his back that Dr. Werries discovered. My husband had a successful surgery for his back and then Dr Werries did full replacements on his knees. Dr Werries is a fine man, dedicated to his patients and a wonderful family man. God bless him and his family.

He did both hips and my two knees. I am pain free and have my life back. He is a very caring doctor.
in Pittsfield, IL |
Dr. Werries is a friendly and understanding doctor. I had to have rotor cuff surgery with a bad tear. Dr. said that I might not be able to lift my arm straight up in the air. Dr. was amaze that I lift my arm straight up without no problems.
in Calumet City, IL |
Dr.Barry Werries did my knee surgery and on April 6 2017 he did a total hip replacement surgery surgery on my Dad and he is kind and caring he will be missed here in Jacksonville Illinois but we understand best wishes to him on his new adventure in Florida.
in Jacksonville, IL |
I have had two knee replacements done by Dr Werries. He is a stickler for proper procedures and goes farther than some to make sure there is no chance of infection. I heard from every nurse at Passavant Hospital how lucky I was to have Dr Werries do my surgery! He was so friendly and I had complete confidence in him. I could not recommend any surgeon more highly!
in Bluffs, IL |
I have had three surgery's done by Dr. Werries. All were very successful. He is great at explaining what has to be done and after surgery tells you what to expect. A great doctor and surgeon. He also is very easy to communicate with. He really does care about you as a person.
in Jacksonville, IL |
Dr. Werries was not personable at all. He would not knock on the door before he entered. He did not try and find out what was wrong me my arm, instead he gave up and told me to find a new doctor.
Jacksonville, IL |
Dr. Werries was fantastic. He spent a lot of time with us explaining everything and making sure we understood the tests he ordered and possible course of treatment for my daughter's hip injury. The nurse and receptionist also were very friendly and made both my daughter and I feel comfortable.
in Bluffs, IL |
He's very upfront about all that you have going on with your injuries...he doesn't try to push surgery, he gives you every option for treatment! I had knee surgery on my meniscus to remove it and had minimal debrement, a little pain the day of surgery, which was yesterday & today I have no pain & am walking (not fully) but walking without crutches or anything!!
