What People Say About Dr. David Wertheim, MD

Went to see Wertheim for shots after previous doctor relocated. Initial visit felt rushed. Previous doctor spent 45 min on initial visit discussing everything, Wertheim spent less than 15 min. Didn't go over much. Two weeks into the shots provided by previous doctor, I noticed vials just expired, Wertheim said it is fine, even though new additional vials were provided by previous doctor, but didn't want to use. Long story short, he just didn't want to do extra work. No longer see him, no trust.

Dr. Wertheim is an amazing auto-immunologist. He listens, explains things clearly, cares about his patients, and thinks outside-of-the-box. He also has a great staff. I highly recommend him.

I've been going to Dr. Wertheim since childhood. He's an amazing doctor that really listens and takes your needs into consideration. Our whole family visits him and he's been the only doctor who's been able to keep my asthma and allergies under control. I would highly recommend Dr. Wertheim to any and everybody!

I agree with other 1-2 star review. Rude, short, and expects you to know things that maybe to obvious to him. Doesn't listen, assumes, and unfortunately, the office also does not handle appointments well. I went a few times because I believe in second chances, but same attitude and demeanor. GO elsewhere!

A top-notch doctor, probably the best of all the doctors I see. Takes the time, puts people at ease, outstanding sense of humor, extremely thorough. I bring all my children to him. I have a lethal allergy, as does my daughter, I am effectively trusting her life with him. I could not give a higher recommendation, and I’m a tough audience.

This is probably one of the worst allergist I have ever seen. Does NOT listen to patients. he is NOT accommodating with scheduling. In my opinion is NOT very knowledgeable. Will highly encourage you to see a different allergist if you need one.

Experienced and educated, but blatantly brushes off/does not listen to patient concerns and is very short. Believes all patients must be alike and fit into the same text book education/research stats.
