I have been seeing Dr. Worth for over ten years for Rheumatoid Arthritis. He is very through, passionate about medicine & teaching. He is very humble & honest; once he realized medication was no longer helping with reduction of inflammation and damage to bone & cartilage it was his decision to recommend surgery.

An extremely compassionate and patient doctor. He does not talk above the patient. When you leave his office, you feel all your questions were clearly answered. He is a special person.

Unlike my GP, Worth knows that Prolia is the best treatment for osteoporosis. He also diagnosed my sciatica.
