Patient Comments (3)
I had to point one out to him which he then biopsied - it came back as a combination squamous cell with basal. He could do not schedule an appointment to remove it for 3 weeks by which time I saw another doctor who had me in and out in 1 week. He also missed another basel cell that my new doctor saw in nanoseconds.

My husband and I both had separate appointments with Dr. Wartels. He talked nonstop-- fast, frivolous small talk, and did not listen to our concerns. He was in and out in less than 5 minutes including taking a biopsy. We left with the same concerns we went in with and still had unanswered questions. We're guessing it takes a lot of money to achieve his hyper pace, because he billed Medicare an exorbitant amount for his time.

His bedside manner and arrogance is only surpassed by his shear incompetence.
