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!

Zero likelihood of recommending dr. wainer. He left me black and blue from my waist to my knee after a routine hip replacement. I asked about getting an epidural because I knew people that had been to other docs for same surgery and had epidural, but dr wainer advised that I would be better off being put to sleep. I've always wondered what had happened while I was "asleep" that caused all the swelling and bruising?! Beware of this doc! Very bad experience. Lots of pain. Wish I had been warned
Very caring and responsive doctor with great results following both knee replacements.

Enjoyed having Dr. Wainer as my doctor. Very easy to talk to.
Outstanding experience despite the healing process fro! Surgery. Pleased I went through that surgery and glad Dr wainer performed the surgery
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.
