What People Say About Dr. Robert Gewirtz, MD

Not pleasant, my husband came to Mt Carmel East hospital with terrible back pain. Dr Gerwitz was part of a group of Drs that saw him to diagnose his issue. After tests and a brief stay. This Doctor came to the room and was rude and abrupt and told my husband he would have to wear a back brace the rest of his life and be on pain pills and there was nothing he could do to help him. When we returned home my husband was told he has Multiple Myeloma. Which is not a disease that can be treated with a back brace.

In February of 2014 I was taken to Riverside Hospital with a brain aneurysm and thanks to Dr. Gewirtz I am still here today. He doesn't sugarcoat anything. He tells you what is wrong and explains how he is going to fix the issue. I was offered 2 different surgeries and after talking to both surgeons my husband chose Dr. Gewirtz, and I would choose him everytime. I have nothing but great things to say about him. He is no nonsense kind of person. Very professional.

This doctor is an excellent surgeon in my experience. I suffered with trigeminal neuralgia for three years. I sought out surgical option as meds became less and less effective in controlling the debilitating pain. In July, 2014 Dr. Gewirtz performed microvascular decompression (MVD) surgery and I have been pain free since. Truly a miracle for me. Looking at other reviews on this site, I would agree that interpersonal skills are not his strong suit; brain surgery is.

Didnt have any interest in listening to me. PA was even worse. I felt like it was a bother for me to be there. Spent a whopping 5-10 minutes talking to me. Acted as if it was stupid for me to be there. Very disappointing visit.

Dr Gewirtz was second opinion. So thankful he was referred. Instead of spinal fushion was able to get successful disk replacement. Went so well no physical therapy needed. After 2.5 years still doing great!!!

Dr. Gewirtz performed a PLIF and cyst removal at L4/L5. My PCP had him #1 on his recommendation list. The results speak volumes; very little time lost from work, incision healed perfectly, zero residual pain, driving by day 14, walking every day from day 14-today(day 55) for 2+mi. Huge and pleasant change. 2-day hospital stay was fine.
