After my arthroscopic surgery with Dr. Wert, I began gagging loads of blood. I was sent home and felt my lungs collapsing so I went to the emergency. I walked into the surgery perfectly healthy and almost lost my life afterwards. My doctor has tried to reach him numerous times while I was in ER to see what went wrong during the surgery and he could not be reached. I haven't even received a follow up call from Dr. Wert after the surgery was done. Now I'm left with a hospital bill that he refuses

Did an i.m.e for comp. He knows nothing of my condition. He made recommendations that i be weened off pain killers and put on an excersize program. I have a twisted spinal cord...called arachnoiditis. Rare. The few Drs who specialize in it ALL agree that surgery and physical therapy only make it worse. Its extremely painful and the only recommendations are pain management thru pain killers. This dr is dangerous
