Dr. Kenneth N. Woliner's Ratings
Quack. Guy touts his ability in treating thyroid complications yet was disciplined by state board for nearly killing someone with a hypothyroidism misdiagnosis. Stay away from this charlatan.
I went to see Dr. Woliner with hope to find a Doctor who cares and to help me with my Thyroid problems. All I received was a bill for $3500.00 for two office visit. REALLY This place is a JOKE! I'm not kidding people...Dr. Woliner told me to eat a proper diet, exercise and buy his vitamins that they sell in his office. WOW... I knew that. The nurse who took my blood made my both my arm sore and black & blue for weeks...very inexperienced and rude. When I needed to have my prescription refilled...they would not do it until I paid them $600.00 for an office visit. REALLY. This place is nothing but a SCAM!
I came here for Dr. Woliner's claimed expertise in thyroid issues. I received no more detailed information that I have previously from physicians that take insurance. Aside from a full blood analysis, for which you must pay out of pocket and then yourself submit to you insurance, there was no guidance. Basic statements such as eat a proper diet, purchase our products to do so, and workout 30 minuets a day took up most of our mandatory 80 minuet session. No bed side manner. Staff is curt, rude, and unhelpful repeating the same statements over without trying to assist with any confusion. Dr is never available to communicate, only if you come in for $600.00. I would take my money else where.
I was one of Dr. Woliner's first patients. I originally was a patient of Dr. Shamus, and when he transferred his practice to Dr.Ken Woliner because he moved to California, I then became a patient. I met Dr. Woliner on a bench in Orlando for the first time because he was up here for a conference...I think 2002. He was excellent and helped me alot. I was then relocated to another state, found a local Dr, etc.. I have been back in the central FL area and have made several attempts to try and speak with the Dr. The staff is rude, I know he doesn't get my messages, and I think that his prices are outrageous. Dr. Woliner does not accept insurance (I'm ok with that) however not okay with a $900 office visit, $900 LABS AND $500 follow up on the phone. I don't understand where the loyalty is and his concern for wellness. What happened to the Kenneth I knew back in the day? You almost closed your practice. My family was one of your biggest advocates, and now I cannot even get a message through!
I had an appointment with Dr. Woliner last week. I felt I had a new lease on life after my visit. Dr. Woliner is knowledgeable, thorough, charismatic and patient. He really went over and above your average doctor appointment. I feel I am in good hands under his care. In fact I have recommended him to family and friends. In addition, his staff is genuine and helpful. My only regret is that I wish met with him years ago.
I first met Dr. Woliner in the late 90's. I had been feeling exhausted, I also lost lots of hair, and my nails were peeling off. While other doctors had tested my thyroid and said it was fine. Dr. Woliner conducted more specific and precise thyroid testing, only to find I had a thyroid condition. He also got me on the right thyroid medicine, which worked for my body, and addressed my adrenal fatigue with herbal supplements. Recently he tested me for food allergies, which revealed things i need to eliminate and rotate. Dr. Woliner also uses IV therapy which his terrific staff administers, my results have been outstanding. I feel so much more confident about my work now that I know I have a knowledgeable doctor, who is versed in the latest treatments, vitamins and more. I was able to get on with my life and feeling great again. I have hd a very long patient doctor relationship with Dr. Woliner and I would recommend Dr. Woliner to anyone who wanted to feel there best.
Dr. Woliner is very knowledgeable,I'm so glad I found him. He diagnosed my thyroid condition.The office staff is so friendly and helpful. I see everyone loves him but they all complain about money, see if your insurance doctor take time/care like Dr. Woliner. Laws are changing everyday on how prescriptions are given out, they have to monitor you. YOU think you are fine but bloodwork tells alot you might have change dosage but you wouldnt know that unless you have someone like Dr Woliner checking your blood and seeing how you feel. When I first went to Dr Woliner i was told everything up front so there was no surprises Cost labs done in office follow up times/cost. Seems to me people only complain when they dont get things done the way they THINK it should be. The bad post are sickening if he was so good to go to for YEARS and you felt better why complain because you cant afford him now so he should treat you for free or write scripts and take a chance your scripts are still correct.
I came to Dr. Woliner for extreme fatigue. when I called the receptionist with the southern twang which is super annoying told me that she doesn't have appointments for a long time but if I want there's an appointment tomorrow morning at 8am if I wanted it, shady. I basically got a lot of nothing from Dr. Woliner and it cost me over $3000. He will try and hold on to you by only giving you refills of his prescription after you pay another $400 every month or so to discuss how you are feeling. I later went to the top fatigue doctors in New York City and was surprised how much cheaper they we're then Dr. Woliner. If you are rich and don't care about spending money he might be worth it, if you are not its better to fly to NYC to a better holistic doctor. Dr. Woliner will make sure you spend at least $1000 easily before you walk out, he basically makes his money on the tests he orders you. In my opinion a doctor shouldn't make money on lab work.
Dr.Wolliners' office staff is rude, unprofessional & incompetent.I have worked in the medical field for 15yrs & have never been so insensitive to patients health & financial concerns. His phlebotomist could not get my vein after trying 6x & me going back 2 days. She hit a nerve trying to take my blood,which left a burning sensation that lasted 2 weeks.Office never called to see how I was doing, even after I left 2 messages.Since she couldnt get a sample,I wanted to take the lab orders to Quest,which my ins.participates.Manager said she couldnt give me the orders until I gave them an additional $1180, I asked what that amount was for & no one could give me an answer.When I pressed the issue,I was told "I guess we are not the office for you" The entire consult with the doctor, consisted of him printing articles from the internet.He recorded the session & charged an additional $5 for the dvd. I would not refer any relative or friend to this office. Very disappointed
I thought Dr. Woliner was very personable and knowledgable. He certainly knows thyroid! I've been begging doctors for years to let me try natural thyroid, but they kept on saying that Synthroid was the best. After spending over an hour with Dr. Woliner, he said that Synthroid obviously wasn't working for me and made the switch to Armour. I just got to tell you, I feel so much better on this new thyroid. It's just so crazy that other doctors won't write prescriptions for anything but Synthroid. Anyhow, my skin is less dry and puffy, and my hair is growing back again.
