It has been the worst experience. I am taking my son for the past 9 months now and nothing has changed. My son is still on the same over the counter allergy medication that his physician had advised. The wait is crazy. Today I waited over an hour with a toddler in his office only to be seen by a nurse practitioner, but still my insurance and I both were charged.

I've been going there for several years for allergies and asthma. I LOVE him, and I don't like most people. I recommend him to other people and my brother went to him as well - said he was awesome. He's very direct, matter of fact and he's not a drug pusher. He doesn't want to over medicate you, and considers long term, instead of the short term. I can understand that some people don't like him, because they need more hand holding and coddling. But if you ask him questions, or to elaborate he'll explain and he knows his stuff. He knows about drug interactions, side effects, etc. He's friendly and nice... His personality is a bit hyper/ fast based, maybe that's why people may feel rushed, but it's not personal nor is it meant to hurry you along. It's just his personality. I don't want a doctor who tries to be friends and networks with me to get business. I want a doctor who is efficient, effective, intelligent, open minded, forward thinking, etc.

I can't say enough about Dr. Wertheim, his care and dedication to his patients is superb. He goes above and beyond to follow up and remains diligent in his care. I can't thank him enough for the care he provided to my daughter who was struggling for so long with her medical issues. He led us on a path to her diagnosis and she is doing well because of him.

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.
