“I write this letter only in small part to thank Dr. Werthman and his supporting personnel- my main motivation is to help the next person in need of a great urologist.
“Before finding and settling on Dr. Werthman, I spoke and met with numerous other doctors (also of high repute I should add) about a reconnection and especially a solution to my post -vasectomy pain (vasectomy performed at family planning 2009) which was a complicated matter not due to the usual causes.
“Most did not listen at all, others even suggested frighteningly unnecessary procedures. With each new doctor, I only felt worse about my predicament. Had I not through good fortune found myself in the office of Dr. Werthman, I doubt my nightmare would have been alleviated.
“From beginning to end my experience with Dr. Werthman was a pleasant one. His office staff have been with him a long time and their experience comes through.
“My consultation with the doctor himself was a meeting with a human being who cared about my individual case, not the usual sit-down with a distant expert selling skills and procedures.
“In response to my questioning Dr. Werthman spoke positively of his profession, and I got the sense that his daily work takes on more the aspect of a life mission. He was the only one who during the initial exam identified the probable cause of pain and proposed a solution that made sense.
“Later, during a successful reconnection, Dr. Werthman indeed took care of the problem which he had previously diagnosed correctly. Several hours afterward he called me personally to check on my well-being- I was pleased to report that all was well and that with only an ice pack the post-op pain meds were surprisingly unnecessary.
“I should mention also that the top-notch facility where the work was performed, Specialty Surgical Center of Wilshire, employs a team of personnel that made me feel exceedingly well cared for, not solely for their professionalism, but also because of a disarmingly warm bedside manner which although unexpected was very much appreciated. To the patient (which was me!) everything matters, and it was a great comfort to see that everything mattered to them as well.
“I now feel as if I had a new lease on life, like a trapped animal newly freed, and in some small way reborn. My deepest heart-felt thanks to Dr. Werthman and everyone involved in ensuring the success of the operation and the end of a dismal three-year ordeal. This is what good western medicine is all about, and I truly feel blessed for having received it.
“I am aware that testimonials generally consist of only a few lines and sometimes read like book-review hype, and surely any that contain high praise for Dr. Werthman are certain to be true. However, I chose instead to offer a more detailed and personal account of my experience so that others might have the good fortune to arrive at the same decision that served me so well. Normally I think I would have ended this by saying 'take care and good luck to you', but if you have already found Dr. Werthman then that may be all the care and luck you need. So instead I will only say: take it easy, relax- you really are in the best of hands.”
Sincerely, Eric, Aug 2012
“Dr. Werthman is by far the best doctor I have ever seen for any reason.
“My husband suffered from chronic testicular pain that had remained undiagnosed for 3 years by the army. In less than 5 minutes Dr Werthman gave my husband a diagnosis, and within 3 days my husband was FIXED.
“We owe everything to this man and I cannot say enough to express my gratitude. Worth every penny. If you have any problems with your male reproductive “parts,” then go see Dr. Werthman. You will not find any better.”
“Dear Dr. Werthman (Phil),
“I would like to first start off thanking you for all the help you provided me in getting back to feeling myself again! If you recall, I was suffering from Post Vasectomy Pain Syndrome back in November of 2005 when I contacted you. After speaking to you via email/phone, as well as speaking with one of your former patients who suffered from the same syndrome, and doing extensive research, I decided to fly out to CA to have the reversal procedure done. It was the best decision I ever made.
“It has been almost exactly 1 year since the surgery (January 24, 2006) and I feel 100% better. It took awhile (around 7 months) before I felt considerably better, but now I am able to do all the things I used to do before my vasectomy in November of 2004.
“I would like to sincerely thank you for all that you did for me. You showed considerable compassion/patience while answering all my post-surgery emails, getting me in touch with former patients (David and James) and talking me through this life changing procedure.
“If you ever have a patient that would like to talk to any of your former patients, please don’t hesitate to call me. I would be delighted to talk to them about my experience with you and your entire organization (Jim included). You run an extremely impressive practice, and I can’t say enough about my whole experience. Please let me know if you ever need anything.
“Thank you, Mike
