18/03/14 5 5 5 5 Dr Werle did both my knee replacements, first one in Nov 2006, second one May 2007..after other surgeons told me to wait about another 10 yrs because the replacements would wear out. They didnt think at 59 yrs old that I was old enough. Dr Werle was excellent, patient, kind and caring. My knees are great 7 yrs later, my pain was totally removed after surgery and I stopped all medications because of this. I had a need to see Dr Werle 2 years ago because of a fall, and again he was totally great. Thank you DR Werle for all your help and time, to your staff for being so caring and to your own receptionist who took the time to talk to me and always greet me by name.

11/10/12 1 1 1 3 I need critical knee surgery so my General MD asked Worle to help me. Well, that was February 23, 2012. Today is Oct 11, 2012 and we just found out that this admin staff denies getting files, faxes, phone calls and have absolutely no idea where I am on the list or time. Even though my General MD provided copies and proof of transmission they still deny and quite frankly do not care. So after all this time I am absolutely no where. Had to beg my doctor to try and acquire someone else. STAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR AND HIS INCOMPETENT STAFF.

29/04/12 5 5 5 5 I am now 45 years old. Three years ago this Friday, I traveled from Nova Scotia to have him perform the Birmingham hip procedure. Seven months after that I started karate with my son for the first time. This past weekend I earned a black belt. Had I not had the procedure this would never have happened. The doctors here were telling me to wait 10-15 years and have a total hip procedure. I'm glad he helped me out. Thank you Dr. Werle.  Respond

09/08/11 1 2 1 2 I seen Dr Werle last Feb and I was told that I would have surgery in March and that was well over a year ago. My family Dr has been trying to get information and no response by phone or E-mail I find this very unprofessional. I now have to wait agian to see another specailist which could take up to another year.  Respond

31/05/11 4 4 5 5 I also have had two total knee replacements and found Dr Werle to be excellent. He always asks if you have any questions at every stage. I have had no problems and had my Dec 2010 surgery at McCaig and the May 2011 surgery at Rockyview and both were very good experiences. Parking at the Gulf Canada Square Medical Centre can be a hassle but if that is the only complaint then really I don't have any. I would recommend Jason Werle to anyone looking for a knee replacement. Very professional and well mannered.  See Responses

12/11/10 3 4 4 5 Had both me knees done by Dr Werle and he did a great job. I asked numerous PT's, OT's and nurses about several doctors before I decided on one for my knee operation(s). I got only positive responses about Dr Werle and I am glad I ended up picking him. I highly recommend asking around before you choose a surgeon.  Respond

24/10/10 4 4 4 5 Dr. Werle repaired my knee which was quite badly injured in an accident. He happened to be the doctor on call when I arrived at the hospital, and I am very thankful for his surgical excellence and kindness. I have a pretty good chance of regaining full use of my knee, thanks to him! Note: staff comment refers to staff of the Cast Clinic at RGH.  Respond

07/05/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Werle was my surgeon for both hip replacements. I can't say enough about how great he is. Compassionate, sincere, helpful, knowledgable, understanding & a great sense of humor.

28/11/09 5 5 5 5 Overall I found him to be very professional. He replaced my knee that was severely injured many years ago in a car accident. I found him to be very upfront and honest about the possibility of a successful operation and was very attention post-op. He followed up on every concern. The surgery itself wasn't 100% successful as I had hoped but it did alleviate the pain I was living with. I would still recommend him to anyone else going through similar problems. If there was any complaint at all, I wish he would have educated me more on the apparatus going in my knee. He was professional and pleasant and that is what I remember.  Respond

My husband has a quality of life know that he would not have had if Dr. Werle hand not done the Burghmingham Hip procedure for him. About the negative comments there must be something else to the it as Dr. Werle has only help us with our insurance companies.  Respond

15/05/09 5 4 5 5 A few years ago I was referred to Dr Werle as I had had a R. knee replacement (by another Dr in Calgary) which was not done correctly. From when I first went to Dr Werle I have been extremly happy with his work. Not only did he do a new R. knee replacement but I have since had the other knee replaced and both my hips. At all times I have been treated with respect . I have always found his office staff to be friendly and helpful.  Respond

20/11/08 3 5 5 5 My wife had a complicated total knee replacement by Dr. Werle. She was afraid that her knee would be worse, but she had less pain than before immediately after the surgery. However, his receptionist is always grumpy. Once when we were there, she handed personal files to the wrong patients because she didn't even look at their faces.  Respond

12/05/07 4 5 5 I was referred to Dr Werle from another doctor in the same office (who only consults and does not do the surgery). I had been having trouble with my right knee for more than 9 years, and no one could find anything wrong with it. Countless X-rays, an MRI and plenty of exams, physiotherapy, etc, could not lead to a diagnosis. Dr Werle offered to do exploratory surgery to see if there was something structurally wrong that wasn't showing up. There was! I had an arthroscope on my right knee, and the surgery was faster than I'd expected. Of course I had pain after waking up, but within seconds knew that my chronic pain would be gone. I recovered fully with no complications, and have only 3 tiny scars to show for it. And my knee is as good as it's ever been--actually better! I would highly recommend Dr Werle for his attitude, knowledge, willingness to search for a treatment, and his personality, all of which were fabulous!  Respond

21/03/07 3 5 5 I am very qualified to comment on orthopedics. Dr Werle had to do emergency surgery on my knee. This was the First Time in over 14 surgeries that I never had an infection after the surgery. Not only this, I was up and around in Record Time. I highly state. SEE this Skilled Doctor.  Respond

14/03/07 3 5 5 A fabulous surgeon, and a fabulous manner. Has a long waiting list, but more than worth waiting for the best. My knee replacements were terrific from the first day, and very little post-op discomfort. Very helpful and thorough.  Respond
