What People Say About Dr. Norman Werdiger, MD

I have been a patient for at least twenty years. Dr.Werdiger is a extremely intelligent doctor who is always thorough and supportive. I have had some recent setbacks and he has coordinated with my other doctors and communicated with me consistently. He and his receptionist are always professional and I do not find their manner rude in any way but more apt to be described as businesslike to keep the office running in an efficient manner. I sincerely appreciate his care. J. Carey

The receptionist is way beyond rude. Arriving a few minutes late I was refused access to the office. I sat in the waiting room for my mother's exam, even though I heard her mention she was expecting me. Once "allowed" in, I found the Dr. to be curt and distracted. Weeks later the Dr. called and said he could not help my mother. I feel this decision is completely personal and has nothing to do with his inability to treat her. Disgusted with the whole experience. Would NOT recommend this office.

I have been seeing Dr Werdiger for the last 20 years and his expertise and medical skill has kept me safe and minimized my seizures so my life can be great. I would highly recommend him as a doctor. I know many people in Seizure support groups who have been free/minimal seizures because his treatment. I would highly recommend him.

Dr, Werdiger was thorough and helpful but my daughter (migraine patient) and I would easily forget that when we'd call the office for an appointment or had a question for him. The receptionist is way beyond rude from the get-go. As a result we'd hang up angry and demeaned with my daughter usually in tears. We decided to change doctors. My daughter's primary care in turn had a difficult, frustrating time obtaining the records from Werdiger's office. This practice is unacceptable!
