What People Say About Dr. Mark Wertman, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Wertman has done 2 knee replacements and 1 shoulder replacement for me (due to severe arthritis). He is absolutely top notch!! He ensures that my pain is at a minimum and that my rehab is more than sufficient. His "bedside manner" is excellent...he is extremely easy to talk to about any issues that impact my health/wellbeing. My feeling is that people, who give him a bad rating, are people who think that orthopaedic surgery & rehab should essentially be pain free. Of course it won't be pain free! But, with Dr Wertman's skill at surgery, you will have the very best road to recovery as possible. He does his work; now the patient has to do their work to rehab and make progress.

My mother was treated for a broken wrist and hurt shoulder by Dr. Wertman and left with screws in her hand and her shoulder range of motion severely limited. He gave her a 10 percent rating on her wrist and no rating on the shoulder now we have to take her to see another doctor because of his ineptitude and lack of concern for the elderly. Do yourself and your loved one a big favor. Do not see this Doctor. The one star I gave him is too high

When I told Dr. Weitzman that I had heard some bad reviews about their physical therapy department, he addressed it immediately. He was always very pleasant and attentive to my needs and I had a very successful arthroscopic surgery on my left knee.
