Dr. Wender treated me before I had my surgery and he and his staff were the best!
in Hollywood, Fl |
I had to contact a lawyer to schedule an appointment as it was an auto accident! I waited 2 1/2 hours for this doctor to come in and look at old fashioned x rays ( he was in the room 3 minutes) and let me I had torn ligaments in my neck! Sent me to the front desk to get meds and do pt!! If I would have done this I would be paralyzed!!! He totally MISS DIAGNOSED ME!!!!! I have terrible herniated discs in my neck NOT doing an MRI/CT, HORRIFIC NEVER USE THIS OFFICE ONLY an Insurance Gig!!
