Ratings for Dr. Ray A. Wertheim
I am very surprised to see some of the comments about Dr. Wertheim. I have come in for various issues and he has always been kind, knowledgable and patient. He takes the time to explain personal options to you and he listens intently when you ask questions. I feel like he is a pioneer for womens health issues. And strives to make difficult procedures as painless and efficient as possible.
I have been going to OBGYN -Greenbriar, for over 20 yrs. If, I had it my way I would have left many years ago!! I don't know why doctors think they are "God" just becaue they're MD's. Dr. Wert. has NO patience and is Extremly cockie, RUDE & not really professional. He yelled at me when I was a "forced" in appoint. due to having ill feelings - he regarded that I was wasting his time and said I need to hurry up and that he squezzed me in as a favor! - Only had to wait 1.20min in that cold stupid waiting room. I remember when Dr.Goupal first started - She was the best. Unfortunately, can't wait 3 months for a doctor so I end up using Connie - OBGYN Prationer - She's OK. I think whoever is new to this place find another OBGYN. The office people are rude, they "gossip" about people's issues - I overheard them speaking about me..Right away when I got home I called & complained. Dr. Pinkert personally apologized for the stupid office people. Don't use this place.
Adore Dr. Wertheim! I am obsessive about finding physicians that have attention to detail, knowledge, and are caring and willing to go beyond office visits to help the patient. Dr. Wertheim really took time to explain and help pre and post-op and made sure I could reach him day and night. On the other hand I have had to wait three times for my appointment more than an hour and 20 minutes to be seen. Who would put up with that normally? Everyone in the office blames everyone else for the unprofessional delay (beware they double book patients for the same time slots), sounds like it is never going to change. Couldn't anyone of the entire staff peek their head in and tell me he is running late during the entire hour and a half I am in the little room with a paper gown on? It's cold in there and there is not enough to do in there. In the end I deal with the crazy wait over and over again because Dr. Wertheim is the best!
Dr Wertheim is an outstanding doctor with a true concern for patient's problems. He has been my dr for the past 11 years and I had the best treatment. I recently had a surgical procedure done by him and was amazed by his pre and post operative. He has such a calming effect on his patients that I felt very comfortable being operated by him. He has excellent bedside manners and took the time to answer all the questions that we asked. He is very soft spoken and is very patient and considerate.
Dr. Wertheim delivered my baby and he was not helpful at all. While I was in labor, he would talk to the delivering nurse the entire time about changes in the hospital and other unimportant subjects. This was my first delivery, he made my husband, and I feel unimportant. He was not attentive. My visits with Dr. Gopal and Pickford were very pleasant. They explained everything in detail and made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Wertheim is the senior doctor in this practice. There are two other women doctors there. One is phenomenal- Dr. Pickford- the other has no bedside manners- Dr. Gopal. I recently met Dr. Wertheim when I started having preterm contractions. He was very responsive when we called after hours and said I needed to go to the hospital right away. We did and he was very good about staying in touch with the staff at Labor and Delivery (he was in surgery that evening) to keep apprised of my status. The next day he came in to talk to me (I was admitted that evening) about what was going on and told me I needed to be on bedrest. He took his time hanging out with my husband and me answering our questions. He is very soft spoken and sweet. He has a great bedside manner and was very respectful of my fears/concerns. He had me come in for a follow up and was just as pleasant to deal with. I really enjoyed him very much, especially given the severity of the situation. He was very calming.
Dr Wertheim is absolutely wonderful! He is caring, knowledgable, punctual and friendly. He has been my doctor for many years and has done several surgeries on me. I've always found him to be kind and he always takes the time to answer any questions I have and then some.
