Ian W Wendel DO
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Spine, and Sports Medicine
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Wendel.
“Dr. Wendel provided excellent treatment and service for my spine (herniated discs), including giving me two steroid injections which partially worked, and the drives need time to recover. I'm an "aging athlete (per Dr. Montgomery), and Dr. Wendel "got me"; meaning he knew and respected who I am and my psychological and orthopedic needs. He's an honest person. Dr. Wendel also referred me to Orthopedic Surgeons for consults; excellent. Like Dr. Wendel, they did not recommend back surgery. More P.T., stretching, and "time" to recover. My highest compliment is that I recommended Dr. Wendel to two friends who each met with him for different reasons. Both agreed he is excellent, and he made reliable recommendations for treatment. Dr. Wendel is another example of why I continue seeing physicians with Tri-County Orthopedics.”

“Dr. Wendel was very patient and gives you all the time needed to ask questions. He thoroughly explains things we could understand. He’s compassionate and caring. His desire to help outshines every other orthopedist. One visit and he’s earned my trust entirely. I’m so thankful to have found him, and I will continue to go to him. Highly recommend Dr. Wendel.”

“Outstanding diagnosis and very personable.”

“He was very caring and gave us hope. To our great sadness, Ron did pass shortly after that, but Dr. Wendel made us feel he had a chance which was what we needed to hear.”
– Ronald B.
“Would be very aware of how I felt during a procedure. Checked to see if I felt okay.”
– Annamarie W.
“Dr. Wendel was amazing! He was very thorough in his examination and prioritized my wellbeing and comfort above all. Also, Chris Schierer is the heart and spirit of that place, and his leadership delivers nothing but excellence.”
– Adam F.
“The people at the front desk were charming and professional. Michelle (with 2 LL's), Dr. Wendel's assistant was great and made me feel at ease. As for Dr. Wendel, he asked me a few questions and explained the procedure he was going to perform. Once he was set up, the system only took a matter of minutes. He gave me some aftercare recommendations. It's only been three days since my cortisone hip injection, but I feel much better than I did. I would recommend Dr. Wendel and his staff wholeheartedly to everyone.”
– Vince C.
“An excellent smart doctor that takes time with you and explains everything - I am a nurse and can honestly say he is outstanding - the office staff is friendly and warm and treat you well”
– Charisa W.
“I was referred to Dr. Wendel by Dr. Goldberger, and when I went to see him, I could barely walk with the tremendous pain in my foot due to severe arthritis. Dr. Wendel had an excellent bedside manner, and once done with injected my foot, I had some instant relief. After about three days, I could wear a real shoe and will forever be grateful to Dr. Wendel & Dr. Goldberger. Thank you, Dr. Goldberger and Dr. Wendel it is evident that you both wanted to help me.”
– Gail M.
“I was extremely pleased with the care provided by Dr. Wendel. He thoroughly explained my situation and recommended the course of treatment I should follow. The cortisone shots, while a temporary fix, have already helped relieve the hip pain I have experienced for years. I wish I found him sooner!”
