I’m an avid runner who came in for my ACL injury. Dr. Wert made me feel totally comfortable and explained exactly what was wrong in a simplified way so I would understand. He was the third doctor I came to for my injury and I feel very comfortable continuing my care with him. The staff was super...more

I reached out to Dr. Wert after several failed attempts at recovering from a hamstring tear. He went above and beyond to accommodate my preference to explore non surgical treatments. I would recommend Dr. Wert with confidence.

Doctor Wert operated on me for a rotator cuff injury. The operation went very well, he was always there to answer my questions even when we called him on the phone. I recommend him very highly
