Patient Reviews (3)
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Great bedside manner. Very bright and gives off a positive vibe. He really knows his stuff.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
In a previous review, I complained about my account being sent to collect by Dr. Wells, office, This was told to me by the collection agency. When I call his office, I was told I had a zero balance. Recently, Dr. well called me explained me it wasn't his office, but the outpatient center, where the surgery was preformed. I am sorry for the poor review, and the misunderstanding. Dr. wells did an outstanding job with my surgery and wasn't to blame for the confusion with the collection agency
in Rehoboth Bach, DE |
Came to Ft. Lauderdale from DE last winter. Had a torn meniscus and needed it attended to. After on line research, I found Dr. Wells and because of his high ratings and location I made an appointment with him. The appointment was made quickly and after my initial meeting/examination I decided to have him perform surgery to fix my problem. Surgery went very well as did the follow up care, exams, and therapy. Dr. Wells is highly professional but also exceptionally personable and efficient.
