Ratings for Dr. Joseph H. Willner
Worst doctor I have ever gone to. Stay away from him. He came into the exam room smelling of garlic with a smirk On his face. I had fallen down a flight of steps and I was in the hospital for 4 days. I told him I still got dizzy spells and I had pain. He said of course I did, I fell down the stairs. He said there was some therapy he could do, that would stop the dizzy spells. he told me to get On the table and lay down with my head hanging over the top. He then told me to roll to my side. He then told me that I better not fall off the table, since he just had a hernia operation and couldn't help me. I told him to stop and with great difficulty sat up and got into a chair (he did not even extend his had to help me) I could barely breathe, I was dizzy and very hot. I asked him for a glass of water. At first he didn't hear me (he wears 2 hearing aids) then he made me get up and follow him to the water cooler. STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN.. He should not be practicing medicine. When I tried to tell someone in his office (Theresa) she got nasty with me and told me she could not listen to me, since he was her boss. The entire staff is nasty.
Visiting Doctor Willner was the worse experience I ever had. I waited for over 45 minutes after my appointment time. This is when I noticed the desk staff's unwelcoming and unprofessional behavior. After finally getting hollered (hollered not called for politely) out of the waiting room, I was taken to a room where the doctors assistant took my blood pressure. Dr. Willner arrived where we had the standard "small talk" introduction for 5 minutes. After, we discussed the reason for my appointment LITERALLY 3 minutes later I was given a referral to another doctor and dismissed. I have never felt so robbed in my life.
i went to him last year and he seemed very knowledgable. he was able to figure out which type of headaches i was having and told me how to break the cycle of rebound headaches. he was very thorough with collecting information in terms of history of headaches, when and how often they occur, etc. he did a series of neurological exams and looked in my eyes as well as took my BP. i went back this year for a different kind of headache and was as receptive as the first time in gathering info, etc. he is sending me for an MRI. i would recommend him.
Worst doctor experience I've ever had. I waited over an hour to see him only to be dismissed in less than 5 minutes. He did not give me the time I needed to explain my problem and was truly disinterested in anything I had to say. I'll have to start over with someone else - AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!
This guy is awful. After making the patient wait for 40-45 minutes after the appointment time, another 10-15 minutes in the examination room, he spent less than 5 minutes giving a cursory examination, offering very little meaningful diagnosis. Never took bp, or any other usual neuro-diagnostic tests. He is one step from retirement and elicits a highly disinterested persona. Stay away from him and find someone younger, more energetic, empathetic, and is interested in actually treating patients. Very disappointed with this medical professional.
I went to dr. Willner when I first had my seizures and he was a very nasty doctor and even to my mom he was very nasty cause he didn't tell me how to take my medicine and I think that is awful to do that to a patient I would not recommend him to anyone and I hope he losses his liscese as being a doctor DON"T EVER GO TO HIM OR YOU WILL BE VERY SORRY YOU DID
