What People Say About Dr. Brian Wittenberg, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Totally disappointed - waited for an hour and literally got 5-7 minutes of his time. He quickly said he feels I have Neuromas and gave me the option of ortho inserts, an injection (of what, he didn't say?) or talk to his partner about having surgery. I chose inserts. He told the nurse to get the script and he walked out in the hall. I asked while he was in the hall what causes this and he replied, " too tight of shoes, it's in the pamphlet I gave you." I would not recommend him to anyone.

This incorrect diagnosis kept me in pain for months until I finally got a second opinion from a different physican. He didn't seem to be listening to what I said, and despite asking several times, he never answered my questions. He did not review x-rays with me. I was so disappointed and still in so much pain. Physical therapy?! Thank goodness I was eventually referred to a physician who listened to me and then took the time to show me my x-rays, explain the situation, and the treatment options!

Seemed extremely rushed and didn't really give me any time to ask questions about the diagnosis he provided me. I left his appt feeling pretty frustrated.
