Two years ago I began experiencing significant gynecological issues. I worked with my practitioner and tried everything to remedy the issue short of a full hysterectomy. After a failed endometrial ablation my issues intensified rendering me to live in excruciating pain daily and nearly unable to function in any area of my life – home, as mom, wife and at work. I began searching for options and discovered Dr. Wortman/his practice in Rochester, NY. As I read the page it was as if it was written to describe my experience. I am always a bit leary of what I read and this sounded too good to be true. So, I called his office and spoke with Rebecca and was immediately met with compassion, understanding and genuine interest in learning about me, my situation and how they – Dr. Wortman, may be able to help. After much discussion personally with Dr. Wortman and members of his team, it was determined that I was a candidate for the reoperative procedure. The only option offered to me by my local practitioner (Atlanta GA area) was a full hysterectomy. This was just not what I felt I needed at this point. My husband and I traveled to Rochester, NY the first week of Dec. 2017 to have the procedure. By the time we arrived we had talked with Dr. Wortman and Rebecca and others so much that it was like we were visiting family. This is THE MOST AMAZING and caring group of people I/we have encountered – you are not just a patient to them. Dr. Wortman took time before procedures began to sit with us and explain every detail, review all information provided and to make sure that any/all questions were answered. Dr. Wortman was there every step of the way and was available throughout. The regard that he has for his patients is amazing – your well-being is his priority and there is absolutely no question about this. I had my hysteroscopic surgery on 12/7/17 and by that evening I felt better (wow!!). We traveled home the next afternoon and I feel better than I have in years. Dr. Wortman and his team remained in touch after we returned home and continues to monitor my recovery in coordination with my local practitioner. Dr. Wortman is thorough, takes great pride in his profession and is committed to improving your health – If only there could be more practitioners like him. If you are reading this and wondering if pursuing this option is something you should consider – call them and talk with them. If you (like I have) wonder if someone else writes these reviews and posts them please contact the Center for Menstrual Disorders and Reproductive Choice and tell them that you would like to speak with me – I will be happy to do so at any time. I would not wish my two + year experience on anyone and wish you only the very best. Dr. Wortman gave me my life back – I/my family are forever grateful!!
