I am a healthy 76 year old healthy male who has been seeing Dr Wertz for several years. He has performed several procedures over the years on both shoulders. He is personable, cautious and a very thorough doctor. If any of my family or close friends are in need of orthopedic services I will encourage them to go to Dr Wertz
in Erie, CO |
Dr. Wertz is the stereotype of the perfect surgeon. He is professional, his hip surgery results were stellar, and he is a bit aloof with his patients. He admits that he is more involved with the surgeries than he is with the patients and that he continues to work on his "people skills". I have several friends that have had Dr. Wertz as their surgeon and they agree with me. You couldn't find a better surgeon; he just needs to become more appproachable. He has a wonderful smile; try to see it.
in Boulder, CO |
Dr. Wertz has been an outstanding provider for me and others. He has a very kind, professional, and comprehensive way of explaining care. He is so knowledgeable and up to date on the latest surgeries. His manner is gentle, reassuring, and so professional. I think Dr. Wertz goes out of his way so spend time, answer all questions, and give complete assurance of his excellence.

The two times I met with him, I had to wait 50 minutes. The biggest GOD complex I ever have seen! A friend of mine use to work there, and she told me he treats his employees like crap and that the other doctors are the same. The worst place ever! Respect people and treat them right! You're aren't GOD!
in Lafayette, CO |
Went to Dr Wertz for a total hip replacement. He left me with a leg length differential of almost an inch. Have to have it redone, but not by him. Long office wait time to see Dr. Wertz only to have him spend very little time with me and his solution was to wait until the other hip needed replacing then he would even me out. That could be 10 years from now or never. Got another opinion from a doctor that suggested he mismeasured me before the procedure.
in Denver, CO |
Dr Wertz has treated multiple injuries of mine - from ACL reconstructive surgery to broken talus, sprained ankle, and separated shoulder. I was pretty upset when I heard the news about my ACL surgery and he spent the time answering my questions, alleviating my concerns and engaging a peer for a second opinion on the spot. He's excellent at what he does.
in Louisville, CO |
Medical skills: Doctor failed to read daughter's chart, which only had two short entries. Didn't seem to listen once given information. Roughly handled child's limb. Didn't seem to listen to whether it hurt or didn't. Provided a splint that was way too large. Social skills: Doctor failed to introduce himself. Failed to apologize for being 45 minutes late. I thought these type of doctors went out of style 20 years ago when it was okay for surgeons to think they were God.

His having done 2 knees and 1 hip for me I am more than satisfied..
