I will always be thankful to Dr. Wert for getting to the root cause of my underlying medical issues. He does not believe in the 'band aid' solutions, he really wants to help heal you as a whole. While my symptoms were lung related, he took the extra step to refer me to another specialist who diagnosed me. No other doctor took that step, and I really appreciated his help.
Dr Wert has a complete conversation with you getting all details of your health. He listens and doesn’t rush the patient in and out.
I went to Dr. Wertz a few months ago and was concerned by some of his reviews. I thought he was great. He went over my concern and explained everything to me. I was very pleased with him and he was very pleasant.
I was referred to Dr. Wert by my GP. I had been coughing for months and the cough was getting worse. He started treating me for allergies and when I did not get any better he made it sound as if it was my fault, I must not be doing what he recommended. This went on for many many months and my health continued to worsen. My family begged me to see another doctor but I thought "well he is a specialist so I should be able to trust him". I called to be fit in to see Dr. Wert and could barely get onto the table without assistance from the nurse. I had been experiencing severe chest pains and demanded an x-ray. Dr. Wert said he felt it was "unnecessary" but if I insisted he would order it. I had an x-ray and within hours the office called and had me come in for a CT scan. Dr. Wert then told me I had a tumor in my lung only to later say it was possibly an infection. After a biopsy, the Mayo clinic confirmed I had NH Lymphoma. There was a baseball size tumor in my chest. Dr. Wert failed me. If I had not fought for the x-ray, I would have been dead within months. My lung had collapsed, my ribs were broken and the tumor was growing so large it was pressing on my airway. I know doctors are busy and have heavy caseloads but they have to "hear" their patients when they are telling them something is wrong.
Dr. Wert was kind, professional and thorough. I felt that he took the time to listen and answer all of my questions and I was very happy with my experience.
My wife (who is Vietnamese) brought her ex (who is Montagnard and dying)end stage of COPD. Dr. Wert was not very pleasant, grilled them like they were criminals and made reference that they were looking for some benefits (which was puzzling) because his family physician said he had 6 months to live. That is a head scratcher. He asked what kind of insurance he had and how long he’s been in the US? She over heard Dr. Wert tell the nurse they (in essence) were lying to him. Very unprofessional and disrespectful. We can’t speak for the other physicians, but I would not recommend Michael Wert!
I've been going to him for 3 years. He is no better now than he was when i first started with him.I was ""given" to him, because my Dr had changed jobs and left the practice. He always seems like he can't remember one visit from the last. If it is not his way, then he will tell you to hit the door. I can't get my head around a doctor screaming at a patient because i wrote something on on my "Medicine Calendar" in the wrong place. His face was so red--I didn't know whether to laugh or punch him!!! To say I was mildly shocked at his behavior would be safe!! I finished up with him, made follow up with his PA, got to my car shaking! I've got to find another Pulmonary doctor and practice!!!!!
Istruggled with life threatening asthma for 2 years....4 critical care hospital stays while under the care of a team of doctors. Two years ago, after asking my very trusted OBGYN to recommend someone, she suggeated Dr. Wert. At the first visit, there was a barrage of questions; then, long silence. He told me to stop all meds from the other doctors and prescribed a single medication. My asthma has stayed under control and I have felt really good since!
Dr. Wert is a God send to my family. He is patient, professional, caring, and experienced. We are so happy we found him.
My doctor left this practice and I was referred to Dr Wert! I won't go back! He was very cold...does not look you in the eye, and doesn't listen. I left, feeling like I had thrown my money into the wind.
After months of test, xrays and having my breathing issues continually worsen Dr Wert pinpointed the problem on my first visit. Within 2 days I had remarkable improvement. I follow his directions and each day I am stronger and my breathing is getting back to normal. He is a no nonsense Dr who is definately on the mark. If you want to improve this is the Dr.to see.
I was referred to Dr wert for emphysema. My very first visit he stated I didn't have emphysema and he could take care of me. He then ordered tests, which clearly showed I have emphysema and then he says... Can't win em all. I don't find my disease funny. Over the course of a year he took me off of the medicines that worked and kept putting me on the ones that didn't work and then continually asked me why they weren't working. During every visit he would not make eye contact, he SQUINTED.
I feel confident in his ability. I do not feel anxious s anymore about my condition.
One of the most dehumanizing experiences I've ever had. He spent 5 minutes listening to me (he talked over me and corrected me the entire time) and not once did he look me in the eye.
I was referred to dr Wert by my primary care physician. On my very first visit with dr wert he advised me that I wasn't really sick and that I just believed that I was. I advised him that I was diagnosed with emphysema some years back and it's pretty clear that I am in need of medical help. He corrected me and began telling me that wasn't the case and that no one really has COPD, it's just an umbrella term. He went on and on about different things he believed and how he gives seminars about such things and in the end he didn't do a bleeping thing for me but put on medicines that didn't work and then when he put me on that did - he took me off of it! And you can certainly forget about any follow-up. He couldn't remember from one visit to the next who I was. I would call with questions and it would take several calls over a period of days to get any response. The worst part though is he wouldn't look at me. He would squint his eyes and not make eye contact. It gave me an unsettling feeling. Needless to say, I am no longer a patient there and have since found a really good pulmonary doctor that recognizes my disease and is treating me for it.
I was referred to Dr. Wert for emphysema. The very first time I met with him he told me I was ok and not to worry. He said it wasn't as bad as all that and he'd have me up and running around in no time. I was diagnosed with emphysema over 10 years ago. At this stage I am barely able to walk. He made these statements prior to ordering any tests. He made comments that reflected the fact that he had not even read my file!
Horrible bedside manor, arrogant, abrasive, insensitive, quick to judge. I've never felt so belittled. Never again.
He had thoroughly reviewed x-rays, tests, and surgical notes going back for ten years. He gave me an excellent consultation. I would recommend him to everyone.
Dr Wert believes he knows everything including what is wrong with me BEFORE I tell him how I feel and BEFORE any tests are run. He was wrong. He spends all of the time telling me what I'm doing wrong and trying to put me on meds that I've already tried or cannot take. The entire time he's talking to me, he won't look at me. I stopped seeing him.
I've been seeing Dr Wert for some time. I have emphysema and need help but he doesn't listen to me and continually tells me all the things that I AM doing wrong. He keeps switching my meds and nothing is working. He's got this idea that he already knows what's wrong and keeps trying to convince me of problems and symptoms that I do not have. After all this time, I"m no better off than when I started seeing him. I'm done. Life is short and with this disease, it's really short. I want to enjoy what life I have left and he's not helping me do that.
