in Reidsville, NC |
For a guy who is a team physician, he really is not current on his research for injuries. He always wants to operate on my knee and I was interested in Stem Cells or PRP. I brought in good research and his PA just blew me off. Get with the future Bobby. He doesn't want to stay in the room to talk over options outside of me agreeing to surgery.

I've had rotator cuff and ankle surgeries with Dr. Wainer and both have been complete recoveries. I always get all my questions answered in a way that I can understand. I never have to wait at my visits - in and out!
Very caring and responsive doctor with great results following both knee replacements.
in Lexington, N.C. |
Enjoyed having Dr. Wainer as my doctor. Very easy to talk to.
I was extremely nervous about this procedure. Dr. Wainer, his PA and staff could not be better in their bedside manner or healing skills. I am extremely pleased with my progress and their care and am ready to have surgery on knee number two! I highly recommend Wainer and staff to anyone needing knee surgery.
I have had both knees replaced and everything went really well. Would recommend Dr Wainer very highly.
