Ratings for Dr. Marco N. Wen
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.
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.
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.
