What People Say About Dr. Lewis Wetstein, MD

Giving this physician 1-star, is a compliment. After being misdiagnosed at Jersey Shore hospital with a collapsed lung, I was called back by the attending physician. She advised me that my scans were NEVER READ, and I would need to come back for an emergency chest tube. She then informed me that Dr. Wetstein was on call at the time, 2 am, and he would be performing my procedure. Dr. Wetstein explained to my mom and I that I had blebs in my lungs, along with a collapsed lung and he would have to do two procedures. One to remove the cysts. One to reflate my lung. After a long agonizing procedure deflating my lung, he told my mom he was going to now fix the blebs. She would not let this happen, because the radiologist who found my pneumothorax mentioned nothing about it. The following morning, Dr. Wetstein came to “check on me”. He failed to look at my wound, drainage or any part of me. He did not even touch me. He was just insistent on the fact that he had to remove my “blebs

My daughter was in er this man who calls himself a dr was on call. He inserted a chest tube to re inflate her lung. So far in her lung she had to be on major pain meds the whole time she was in the hospital. Wanted to operate before he even saw her X-rays. I took him off case and hired my own thorasic surgeon. He is now suing us for his money. He was in the insurance. Despicable human STAY AWAY. He should not have a license I give him a zero

My sister was in NJ and had recurrence of cancer which had gone into her lung. She was taken to the hospital where he did a thoracostomy. Her bill after Medicare was $300. She is unable to pay from her fixed income. He sent summons to her friend to pay HER bill as he says she signed something but didnt. Instead of making arrangement with my sister, he threatens court and strongarms and threatens a person with no money who is dealing with cancer!Stay far away from disturbed, horrible dr. AWFUL!!

Admitted to the ER Wetstein was consulted for a possible pneumothorax. Pulmonary reviewed a chest xray showing it resolved. Despite this fact he charges my father for that visit and a follow up visit. He was never treated. Within a week a bill was sent for services not performed, one month later sent to collections, one month later sued! Disgusting, greedy, and unprofessional. He got his money which is obviously his only concern.
