14/12/13 1 1 1 1 several days after perfect renal transplant surgery, probably due to mismanagement of the urinary catheter, my wife developed severe b-coli sepsis and unbearable muscle pain, and we run to ER at SPH. on call dr werb was supposed to wait there, but in spite of several phone calls from the intern ( they always put there intern, to have an cover themselves) he came 1 hr and 20 minutes later, when she already recovered, typical for septic spike. he sent her home ! next day we came for a rejection treatment(incorrect diagnosis) and when this was started, she fell into a septic shock and respiratory failure. ICU director refuse to transfer her and along with dr werb, responsible for her as a transplant doctor on call, and other two doctors, simply all went home (around 5pm) and she was left possibly to die.she survived the night, was intubated in the morning when already all her lungs were fatally infiltrated. luckily survived, with damaged new kidney, donated by our daughter.14 years ago. simply luck, in spite of the "treatment".  Respond

09/09/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Werb is a great nephrologist and kind human being. He is open minded, caring, and hard working. I couldn't say enough good things about him. He diagnosed my FSGS with a kidney biopsy and got me started on treatment right away. His treatment has been highly effective!

12/03/12 2 3 2 4 I have to say Dr Werb is indeed a wonderful Dr....with that i say he was my dr for many many years and was indeed good. Then that all changed and he did very little to give and see to a very serious health issue. I have been on dialysis for so long and he never even bothered to see to me and what was happenig to me. He is a wonderful dr but he failed me in the end. I heard he retired probably it was time for him anyway.  Respond

22/10/11 5 4 5 5 Dr Werb IS man's best friend! His approach to not only the patient but the anxious family of the patient is comforting, assuring beyond words. His knowledge profound. His presence comforting. His approachabilty exceptional. Without him and his expertise we would not have had the last few years with our husband and father. Would that he could be the Physician of ALL Maladies - available to all patients. He is a man highly regarded and justifiably so. Thank you!!  Respond

30/06/11 5 5 5 5 Amazing Doctor, so caring and knowledgeable. He was so willing to do everything possible to make my very ill husband comfortable. More doctors could take a lesson from Dr. Werb on bedside manner. Our family felt very confident that with Dr. Werb on Ahmad's case, he would receive the utmost care possible. Unfortunately we only received the privy of his care for two weeks, that is how the system works at St. Paul's Hospital.  Respond
