Dr. Wehrly thoroughly explains what he recommends and why. Then, the procedure is described and any/all questions answered. He also talks about what to expect after the procedure. All this with an upbeat attitude and sense of humor.

I was impressed with Dr Wehrley from my first visit continuing through my knee surgery and follow up care.Dr Wherly was upbeat,explained things well and truly seemed concerned for my injury and the course of action to take to get better. Even though he's very busy and I'm sure he has many patients,he never seemed to be in a rush to move on to his next patient.I have and will recommend him to friends and family!

I liked Dr. Wehrly from the first time I met him. He was recommended by my doctor and a friend. He is so nice and takes his time to explain your treatment and listens to any concerns. I had a total hip replacement and it went great. Going back in a few months to have my knees done. Highly recommend Dr. Wehrly.

We felt so lucky to be assigned to Dr Wehrly in the Lakeview ER after our son broke his arm. Dr. Wehrly was extremely personable and did a wonderful job of answering our questions about our son's surgery. He was confident in his ability to handle the situation and he put our minds at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Wehrly based on the great job he did on our son's arm and his bedside manner!

Hands down one of the most efficient physicians I've ever been to see. Great attitude, wonderful bedside manor, polite, well educated, funny and down to earth every time I've been in his office. Dr. Wehrly always makes sure that you understand your care at all times and will always discuss options and what's best for you and treatment. I've been to this office several times and not only the doctor but the staff have been wonderful each time. I would highly recommend him!!

Dr. Lance Wehrly is an outstanding orthopedic surgeon. Aside from his exceptional surgical skill in the shoulder surgery he performed for me, he has a very down to earth demeanor and relates well with his patients. He makes sure to take the time to listen to his patient and can explain complex medical matters in terms lay patients can readily understand. He is patient and answers every question you have, even giving information on anticipated questions. His medical staff is also excellent.
