What People Say About Dr. Gary Wexler, MD

Gary Wexler spent almost no time and did no evaluation. He didn't touch or manipulate my elbow to find pain or issues, asked for zero history, no imaging, no question on severity of pain or cause of pain. No advice on whether I needed to rest the elbow. Actually, DID NOT ASK ABOUT ANYTHING except whether I wanted physical therapy with their people! Left after a couple minutes to "get prescription" and didn't return. 100% useless and total waste of time and money.

Did very little to evaluate my injury. Spends about 10 minutes with you. Don’t understand why I was referred to a knee and shoulder guy when it was a spine injury. No pain meds, prescribed a back brace and PT. Did not approve neck MRI for over a month after injury saying it “wasn’t related”. Works for the insurance companies over patients.

Dr Wexler's care and surgery was superlative. He operated on my 92 year old mother's broken hip. No complications with surgery and great follow up post op with care and attention. Dr Wexler was very responsive in every way. He is the Best WPB has to offer!

I had a terrible experience wit Dr. Wexler. Spent less than 5 minutes with me. Looked at x-ray of back. Told me I had arthritis of both hip and curvature of the spine. Told me I am "wearing out." Did not ask what brought on my terrible back pain. Left office to send in nurse who fitted me for a back brace. She told me he was finished. He did prescribe 2 meds. Just awful experience. Zero personality. Never said goodbye or to call. Are Medicare patients treated differently?

I wish I would have read the reviews first - Dr. Wexler has -0- bedside manner and spent maybe 1-2 minutes with me. Looked at X-rays, didn’t really even look at my ankle. Made me feel horribly unimportant to him and since I didn’t have a broken bone (only arthritis) that I was wasting his time. He left so quickly I thought he must be coming back, but finally a nurse said and I’ll give you the prescription. Not going back. Tremendous automation in office so maybe they’ve forgotten how to be human

Worst excuse for a doctor I have ever seen. Spent all of a minute and a half looking at my daughter's sprain. He was rough with her and had ZERO bedside manner. Acted as though we were bothering him with our questions and then ordered x-rays that were not needed. We never went back to him. The whole visit felt as though we were rushed out to make money for him as quick as possible. I have never left a negative review before but wanted to save someone else from making a mistake by going to him.

I badly sprained my ankle and could not walk on it for 3 weeks. My first time seeing Dr. Wexler, he was very fast and was not gentle with my ankle. I spent 175 dollar to be told to ice my ankle and the second appointment spent the same amount to be told he has "nothing to tell me " and I'm on the right track. I was trying to ask questions and he literally had one foot out the door. Very rushed and seems to not care about the patient, which is not good for business.

Injured my shoulder in a biking fall. PBOI took 3 xrays of shoulder. Wexler took one look at the 1st xray, asked what happened, diagnosed an acromial fracture but said he couldn't be 100% sure w/o MRI. Not one look at 2 other xrays or even a physical exam. My portal visit summary shows meds I'm not on, info on caring for knee injuries. Zero bedside manner. I would give zero starts if I could. Don't waste time with this guy, unless to get lab work done quick, then go to someone competent

If you want a doctor who will spend a lot of time with you, Dr. Wexler is not the one for you. I had prepared for my visit by bringing recent images. He spent a minute or two reviewing the images and then took his own MRI. He compared the images and gave me a recommendation to visit a physical therapist. After a few weeks of physical therapy I'm happy to report "That was exactly what I needed". Significant improvement.

Worst ortho doc I've ever seen! Sloppy work, doesn't take the time he should. Missed a complete tear of my supraspinatus tendon (rotator cuff) tear because he didn't take the time to investigate (fibers were still intact from the top). It cost me my job and and additional surgery, lots of additional pain ad lost time. When I told him I was still having pain, he told me "there is nothing more I can do for you, It's all coming from your neck, and that I needed to see a Psychiatrist."

I was a little hesitant about seeing Dr. Wexler because I did not have the recommendation of a friend. But, this was a great choice. He was kind sympathetic and extremely efficient and knowledgeable. Good Sam had read my Xrays as a fracture but Dr Wexler was not too sure about that and so he took another X-ray just to be sure. Well, he was right in his suspicion because the new X-ray was clear that there was NO fracture - just a very bad sprain. He is a wonderful doctor!!

I read the previous reviews prior to my visit today, which had left my with limited expectations. However my experience was extremely positive. Dr. Wexler was attentive, interested conservative in his approach and very helpful. As a healthcare professional myself I feel I can provide the reader with an objective analysis. I highly recommend Dr. Wexler.

I was treated by Dr. Wexler for almost 1 year after I suffered a very serious debilitating shoulder injury. From my initial consultation,surgery and after care Dr. Wexler was always concerned polite professional on time and knowledgeable. I can be considered a difficult patient but Dr.Wexler was always available to patiently answer my many questions and put my mind at ease. His staff is equally professional. I highly recommend Dr. Wexler

not surprised to see a low rating. His poor attitude, lack of interest in clients is clear. In three visits, he each time spent less than four minuets with me. Last visit he asked how I was and what I wanted to do, taken back as this was a followup to review a MRI he had schedule . I told him, well maybe we should look at my MRI. He seemed surprised than clicked the computer and pulled it up. explained it suggested therapy and left. I made the nurse bring him back. I will not see him again.
