17/02/11 5 5 5 5 I have a long history of back problems. Even traveling out of state for surgery in the past. I've also had many unsuccessful back injections until I was treated by Dr. Wen. He was even able to treat the right spot without a recent MRI (I'd had MRI's in the past but got claustrophobic on the last one the same day I was going to be treated by Dr. Wen and he said "Come in anyway" and it worked wonderfully.

28/01/11 5 5 5 5 My name is Tom and I came to know Dr. Marco Wen through my Orthopedic specialist. When I first saw Dr.Wen, I could hardly walk because of my herniated disk between L4 L5. I also have a huge fear of needles. Before he took me into the procedure room, he explained to me the entire procedure and what to expect. I explained to him that I had other orthopedics recomend injections in the past but my biggest fear were needles. Especially a needle going in next to a sensitive sight like a disk. Not only was the procedure completely painless, it only took five minutes. I literally was able to stand upright for the first time in a very long time. The staff is incredible. I would also like to thank Nurse Todd in dealing with a coward like me. Dr. Wen is a exceptional physcian whose only concern is for the betterment of his patients under his care. Take it from a skeptic. He is the right choice if not the only choice for this procedure in the area. Thank you again to Dr Wen and Nurse Todd.  Respond

28/08/08 4 3 4 5 My insurance company was First choice Health Administrators (FCHN) and was not listed above, but is a PPO of his. I was impresssed with his knowledge of back pain issues including my fractured vertebrae. His procedures were helpful, he is a physician and surgeon. He performed two cortisol injections and a rhizotomy. Both were conducted very professionally and his staff were kind and accomodating. He even waived my 20% co-insurance for the expensive rhizotomy, saving me over $1000! I'd recommend him to anyone experiencing orthopedic issues in the Seattle area. 
Paid (or co-pay): $1200
