What People Say About Dr. Michael Wittels, MD

I've had two ankle surgeries with Dr. Wittels: a fracture requiring screws/plate, and an arthroscopy. He's a great surgeon and I highly recommend him. The office staff are usually busy, but they are very kind and friendly. I recommend asking for an early appointment so the waiting room isn't as full. I don't mind waiting because I am extremely happy with the care I receive from everyone.

They switched my doctor with no previous heads-up and they charged me significantly more than they had told me over the phone. Not going back.

I never even made it to get an appontment. The last woman I spoke to was the rudest person. People who have no compassion should not be working in a doctor's office. They should also give you their name when answering a call.

Dr. Wittels is a kind, caring and brilliant surgeon. He saved my knee, helping me avoid a total knee replacement. Words cannot describe how thankful I am. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Robert Borgmann

Dr. Wittels has performed two hip replacement surgeries and I am very happy with the results. I don't mind waiting a little bit in his office because I have complete confidence in him. I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring a hip replacement.

I needed a hip replacement. I was in excruciating pain. Dr. Wittels scheduled me for surgery as soon as possible - a month away.. A week before the surgery I saw him because no one had contacted me about pre-op testing. When I saw him, he cancelled me because he was going on a trip to Nepal with his son. He was very rude when he told me. It took a month to schedule surgery with someone else. I suffered needlessly until then.

My experience was a complete nightmare. I had an appointment for 11:00 am and at 11:45 am I was still waiting in the very smelly waiting room. I asked the idiot Women working at the office why they scheduled me at 11:00 am when it's now 11:45 am and nobody knows when the doctor will see me.... They responded by saying that there are two patients before me..... And that I would have to wait around two hours.... And that's normal. The office is dirty, smelly with a rude staff. Horrible!
