Weatherly, PA |
I would have given Dr. Wertz 3 stars, but it seems that all orthopedic docs are fixated upon shooting cortisone into your back to solve back issues. The good doctor was very attentive and seemed moderately interested in my case. However, when the cortisone shots did nothing for he advised to to look elsewhere for help. No counseling as to a recommended specialist that he might know. Again, this seems to be the lot of most orthopedics guys these days..."Sorry the shots did not work, see you later

I had previously seen an orthopedic group in Pottstown for lower back pain. After two injections I received no relief. I decided to search for a second opinion. I read through many reviews, and decided on Dr Wertz. I drove an hour to see Dr. Wertz. Dr Wertz reviewed my history and looked at my MRI, and determined what should be done. Two days after my first visit I was in the Surgery Center Allentown. I am happy with the results so far. I would recommend Dr Wertz to family and friends.
