BEST DOCTOR EVER April 6, 2021
Dr. Wortman is a true professional in the field and I would not go to anyone else. He is great at lightening the mood and making patients feel completely comfortable. Coming from a person who has anxiety with seeing doctors, he made my appointment a walk in the park. I am from Boston MA and travel to Rochester to see Dr. Wortman, could not say enough about how great my experience was at this office, I highly recommend to everyone!
I traveled from Manhattan to his office in Rochester for my procedure. Why? Because I reached out to his office via the contact form on his website and, a few short hours later, I met with Dr. Wortman on zoom. I felt listened to and cared for from the minute I received a reply from Rebecca, the Practice Manager, to my contact form. His office is wonderful. The entire staff is professional and caring. Every question I had was and answered quickly and with kindness. They proactively communicated every step of the way. There were no surprises regarding co-payment or insurance coverage. They helped with all aspects of this prior to my appointment. Prior to my procedure I met with Dr. Wortman, in his office, for an entire hour. There was no better way to ease any anxieties than to chat through what to expect and to address any concerns. I also got to know Dr. Wortman as a person and doctor, which isn’t something I can say about my primary care physician. The nurse, Amy, that prepped me for my procedure was patient and caring. I never felt rushed or anything less than personally cared for the entire time. I had a wonderful experience from start to finish. I highly recommend Dr. Wortman and his entire staff.
I had endometrial ablation in 2014 and by mid-2016, I was in agony every month for at least 2 full days, if not 4. The pain was so bad it would bring me, literally, to my knees. I was completely unable to function and at 42, who has time for that? Plan that vacation perfectly or….? My OBGYN, in Cincinnati, wanted to give me a hysterectomy. This is something my mother (who had one) strongly advised me against after her own experience, knowing we tend to mirror our mother’s experiences. I started researching failed ablation procedures and found Dr. Wortman (thank you, Lord!). After speaking directly to him – not 5 nurses, relaying messages, etc., etc. – he told me, in understandable language and great detail, about the procedure he employs and how it could correct the initial, failed ablation. It all made an incredible amount of sense to both me and my husband. I went back to my doctor to tell her that I planned to go to New York for this procedure. She left the room to call another doctor she knew for another opinion because she “didn’t like” how this sounded. When she returned, she said this doctor would repeat the initial endometrial ablation! WHAT? Why would I want that again when it failed for me, already – I know that much!? When I told Dr. Wortman about this, he told me why it wouldn’t work which, again, made perfect sense (though I didn’t even need to hear it because I already had a good grasp on how it all worked – thanks to him). To say we were disappointed in my doctor is an understatement. I felt like it was an attempt to keep the money at their facility regardless of the aftermath for ME. In late summer, 2016, my husband took me to Rochester, NY, and I had the procedure performed in Dr. Wortman’s office. I am so incredibly happy to say it has been 4-years! Since my first post-procedure period, I have spotting for 1-day, AT MOST, no pain and I HAVE NOT HAD A HYSTERECTOMY!!!!! I’m back, Dr. Wortman 😉 I just wanted to say THANK YOU, again (and again and again and again)!!!! I hope you all are well and, as I said when you followed up with me, I AM (STILL) GREAT!!!!!! GOD BLESS AND HUGS!
Dr. Wortman and his entire team are wonderful. Very welcoming. Very knowledgeable and genuinely care about your well being. As a woman who has only ever seen woman doctors, Dr. Wortman made me feel more than comfortable and is very respectful whilst having a great sense of humor!! They welcomed my whole family and made them feel at home. Thankyou for everything ❤️
The medical care that I received has absolutely revolutionized my life. I was treated with dignity and respect. My voice was heard, and my results have been excellent. I am healthy and happy.
Dr. Wortman helped my spouse so much. She has had this issue for 6 years – every month, stabbing pain to the point of shock. Emergency rooms only saw her as drug-seeking as their tests never found any proof of pain. Our options were always limited with other gynecologists. Most wanted to just remove the uterus and in their minds, removes the problem! A hysterectomy should not be a one size fits all suggestion! Dr. Wortman has an alternative procedure that we wanted to try. (see his website: The Center for Menstrual Disorders and Reproductive Choice) So far so good! She tells me she feels different which is better than it ever has been. We truly believe he found the problem. We will continue to follow up, but I have never felt so cared for as we have by him. If I was having issues, I would trust this man over any past OB-GYNs I have ever seen. He has the knowledge and experience with as many procedures he does. I could immediately see his office runs like a well oiled machine. We will be forever grateful and appreciative for what him and his team bring to these women.
After dealing with my issue for over 6 years and being told that the only “fix” was to get a hysterectomy, I finally found Dr. Wortman who gave me other options. You won’t find another doctor anywhere that knows more than Dr. Wortman about female wellness. I only wish that I lived closer and found him earlier but I will always return back to NY for my gyno needs. I’ve been telling everyone I know how amazing I feel after having my procedure done by Dr. Wortman. He and his staff are like an orchestra. They know exactly what they are doing as well as how and when to do their part. They work together as a perfect team to make the most amazing things happen for so many women.
I became disillusioned with hormonal birth control after suffering through the horrible side effects for years. I settled on the Paragard IUD as a replacement, and my normal gynecologist inserted it with only some OTC pain medicine. It was the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. I hovered between blacking out, rushes of adrenaline from the pain, and being physically ill. Aside from all this, I loved everything about the IUD…until it partially expelled and I had to have it removed. It was really crushing because my only real options were to go back on one of the hormonal forms of birth control that made me so miserable or to go through the intensely painful process of the IUD insertion again. I BEGGED to be put to sleep for the procedure, but I was told that it simply wasn’t how things were done and the risks outweighed the benefits and a million other little things. I tried to have the insertion again, but even with a Xanax prescribed, I still ended up having a full-blown panic attack during the procedure that prevented the IUD from being inserted because I knew how bad it was about to hurt. It is the only panic attack I’ve had since coming off of hormonal birth control. With Paragard seemingly off the table and my husband and I not wanting to commit to sterilization, my only option for truly effective birth control was to go back on the hormonal methods that were driving me crazy. I was so angry and upset. I was furious that so many women speak of the pain of this procedure and are just written off as whining or being dramatic. My God, even for minimally invasive dental procedures you get laughing gas, and for this you get basically nothing. I was not willing to just take this lying down, so I started searching the Internet. That’s when I found that The Center for Menstrual Disorders & Reproductive Choice and Dr. Wortman offered IV Conscious Sedation during insertion. From the first call I made to their office, they were so apologetic for my previous experiences and so understanding of what I was going through. This was so important to my husband and I that we drove all the way from our small town in North Georgia to Rochester because it was the closest (and one of the only) places we could find that even offered this. They were extremely accommodating to us, and we coordinated everything over the phone, mail, and email so that they would have all of my information on the day of the procedure. The day of the procedure was a completely different experience from my previous ones. Dr. Wortman and his entire staff could tell I was still a little nervous, and they did everything they could to make me more comfortable and ease my concerns. He inserted the IUD while I was under sedation, and I woke up not remembering the insertion at all. My experience with these insertions went from pain bad enough to make me physically ill to waking up with some mild stomach cramping. We were able to drive back towards home the same day. The drive was long but totally worth it, and I would certainly do it again. I realize that this review is basically a small novel, but it is so important to me that women know that there is a better way. I am so thankful to Dr. Wortman and his staff for making this a regular practice for their office, and I hope that other offices will follow suit so that women who are not as fortunate as I am can have access to this service closer to home. In the mean time, you can always see Dr. Wortman!
I have been a patient of Dr. Wortman office for all my OBGYN needs since I was 20. The staff is welcoming from the moment you walk in. They take pride in getting to know you as an individual. There is slim to non wait time in or out the waiting area. the knowledge from the staff is amazing! I began to have menstrual complications after my second child was born. During this time Dr. Wortman and his team studied and listened to all my needs/concerns. He was able to give me vital information of countless options (to which only he offers) so that as a team we could choose one together. Dr. Wortman is a sincere man who takes the time to make you feel comfortable and confident in your health choices. You’ll never feel forced to choose a procedure you don’t feel is fit to your health issues. Not only is the pre care exceptional, the after care from any procedure it without a doubt amazing.
I meant to write this the day after my surgery as I knew I had so much relief already, but when you’re suddenly given your life back and it’s been on hold for about 18 months you keep pretty busy doing a little catch-up or just going on overdue outings with the kids; It had gotten difficult on most days in the final months before my surgery to even lift my 2 year-old without horrible pain, especially if he accidentally kicked my enormously swollen & tender belly. Thinking of all the things I missed, like going on long hikes with my youngest like I did with his older brother when he was young, makes me only regret I didn’t have the surgery sooner. Being the only case of hematometra caused by endometrial ablation, the only solution offered to me in Canada was a hysterectomy. With 2 very active boys (2 & 5 years old at the time) & a husband who was already picking up the pieces & taking time from work for all my appts (as I was trying chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy, & anything I could find to try to relieve my pain enough to get through a day without painkillers. I was also battling terrible sciatic pain (alternating with numbness at times) which started from the moment I woke after the ablation procedure to just the last few weeks. Everybody from my doctor to my chiropractor said there was likely no connection between the state of my uterus & the sciatic pain that that troubled me almost as much as my uterus at times has strangely been fixed for good I’m hoping. I will forever be grateful to Dr. Wortman & his incredible team for the amazing care I received from them! The level of expertise, knowledge & experience that Dr. Wortman has is simply unparallelled, and the level of compassion and kindness I received from his team made me feel like I was being cared for by my own family. Ironically they did everything they could to help my sister who had travelled with me to care for me but had broken her ankle the day before we flew out to Rochester. Within minutes of our original consultation her poor swollen foot was finally elevated with an ice pack and we were receiving some good advice from Dr. Wortman on that as well. I often find myself trying to think of ways to thank these wonderful people that gave me my life back but haven’t yet come up with anything that could hold a candle to what they did for me & how well they treated my sister & I. Thank you so much to my extended family in Rochester!!
I came here just 2 weeks shy of an upcoming surgery to see if Dr W would be able to help me with my situation, as I had heard many recommendations from others to give him a go. So I did and I am happy that I did. When I arrived at the office I felt a sense of comfort and warmth from the staff and even the cute fire place roaring. My wait time was not long at all and Dr W himself came out to greet me and talk with me about my situation and find the best course of action for my specific needs as a patient. I am glad I came here to seek another opinion and had a positive outcome because before I made this appointment I was a ball of nervous energy and anxiety and coming here remedied that quickly and I now feel at ease with things since coming here. I’d definitely recommend Dr W as he was recommended to me by others.
I struggled for years with extremely heavy periods and was told the only solution was a hysterectomy. Having friends who had hysterectomies only to trade their heavy periods in for other problems, caused me to avoid that route. Once I had my first consultation with Dr. Wortman, I’ve never left his practice. I have had two procedures in the past two years that have completely changed my life, with no hysterectomy needed (or even a hospital visit). Even for yearly exams, you will love the attention you’ll receive. Being able to have a vaginal ultrasound with the doctor telling you exactly what is going on in the process, is invaluable. Think about needing that ultrasound with your current gynecologist. It requires three appointments; the initial appointment to request the ultrasound, the second appointment to have the ultrasound done by a technician who is not allowed to tell you anything, and finally the third appointment to get the results. Dr. Wortman can do this in one appointment (with just one co-pay)! Finally, the best part of this practice is the entire staff. Each and every member of this practice is wonderful. It is truly a family atmosphere because of the care and kindness the staff show each other and their patients. I’ve never experienced another medical practice like this one. My only regret is that I didn’t find it sooner!
Dr. Wortman and his staff are such a pleasure to work with. I was having female problems for years and was referred to Dr. Wortman. He is very knowledgeable and compassionate, and was able to correct my issues. I highly recommend him if you or someone you know is struggling with your lady parts. He is the best.
I am so grateful to Dr Wortman and his amazing team. I have been uncomfortable and in pain for years, other doctors never took the time to listen and just kept sending me out for tests and telling me I should not feel the way that I did. Dr Wortman listened and suggested treatment and helped me put a plan in motion that I was comfortable with. I am no longer dealing with the daily discomfort and bloating. I wish I had found him sooner!
After years of countless different doctors, wrong diagnosis, failed procedures and medicines… I had given up hope. I was tired of dealing with doctors that just didn’t listen, putting my body through procedure after procedure that just caused more pain and heavier bleeding. My periods were running my life and it had won. I was ready to throw in the towel. That was until I read about Dr. Wortman. I decided this was my last straw, one last try. And I am so very thankful I did. After my initial evaluation, I was sitting in Dr Wortman’s office and we were discussing my options and he said to me.. “U have been through a lot, we are going to fix u.. It will be OK.” I could have burst out crying. Finally a Dr that was listening, that understood how devastating extremely heavy periods can be, and finally a Dr that had some answers. We decided on doing a endomyometrial resection. I am so happy to announce that after 6 months I am still pain and period free. The days of barely being able to leave the house during my periods, needing to change every hour even through the nights are gone. Dr Wortman gave me my life back and I will forever be extremely grateful. Thank you Dr Wortman and your amazing staff for the years of dedication and commitment you have given to your patients. I will forever be in your debt.
Dr. Wortman and his staff are fantastic!!! I found Dr. Wortman after doing much research online. He was the third doctor I had seen for my condition, but the only one that actually took the time to listen to my concerns without trying to push a specific option on me. He took the time to discuss things very throughly with me, patiently answered all my questions, and left me feeling comfortable with my decision to move forward with the EMR procedure. I had the EMR procedure about a year ago now, and it has been LIFE CHANGING!!! And that is NOT an exaggeration!! I highly recommend Dr. Wortman and his staff!! I wish I had found them earlier!!
Most women can’t say they feel comfortable going to see their gynecologist. I enjoy my visits to see “Moe” and the entire staff at the office. Everyone knows me by name and I am treated like a person and not just another patient. All of my questions and concerns are addressed. There have been some scary moments for me through the years and I have always been able to rely on the entire staff there. It’s more than care that’s provided, it’s comfort, support and understanding. Nothing I’m feeling is ever minimized or dismissed and real time is taken to work through every issue. For all of the years of top notch care and incredible amounts of compassion, thank you to everyone there. I have become more confident as a woman because of the experiences I have had with this practice and will always venture back to Rochester for care no matter where I am.
After spending time in 2 different emergency rooms with lower left abdominal pain, with no precise diagnosis, I and my PCP turned to Dr. Wortman for help. Sitting in his office in pain and frustrated that after 2 weeks I still had no idea what was causing my pain, Dr. Wortman looks at my charts asks me a few clarifying questions and declares that he is fairly sure what my problem is. With this I simply stated, “Dr. Wortman, if you have figured this out, I will love you forever.” Needless to say, Dr. Wortman is the love of my life, besides my husband, of course! 🙂 It turned out I was having a complication from a previous Ablation done by another MD and the recent hormone therapy I was on. I had developed a small area of uterine wall that was trying to grow back with no way to shed. This developed a pocket in my uterus of fluid that was just getting bigger and bigger and causing me a lot of pain and discomfort. Dr. Wortman was able to fix me right up and I am now back to my old self! I wanted to thank Dr. Wortman, Amy, and his whole staff. Not once did they make me think I was crazy with some phantom pain that came and went, they didn’t look at me like I was drug seeking or faking when they couldn’t find anything, like I experienced in the ER. What Dr. Wortman said to me is “Don’t worry, we will fix you right up.” If this man says he will do something, HE WILL!!! Dr. Wortman is real, he’s caring, honest, and is a very smart guy! THANK YOU!!!!!
Only wish I had come to this office sooner!!
After suffering for way too long from monthly labor-like pains, I decided to see Dr. Wortman. From the moment I stepped into his office, I knew I was in the right place. After evaluation, Dr. Wortman took an unbelievable amount of time to sit down with me (as he does at each and every visit) and explain how the uterine ablation which I had undergone 3-1/2 years prior had failed causing the excruciating pain that I was experiencing. I decided to undergo an endomyometrial resection, and it was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. The fact that this surgery was able to be performed in Dr. Wortman’s office made for a much less stressful experience. I can’t say enough about the warm, compassionate care which I have received from every single staff member at every visit. I am thrilled to say that I have been completely pain-free since my procedure due to the knowledge and expertise of Dr. Wortman which are second to none. Even though I live almost 2-1/2 hours away, I have decided to continue my routine gynecologic care at this amazing facility!

Compassionate & Competent Care that follows the patient from the first appointment, to surgery and through to the follow up appointment. Dr. Wortman’s medical practice is a fine example of how healthcare can and should be.
I highly recommend Dr. Morris Wortman, M.D. Other than marrying my husband and having my children, choosing to have the endomyometrial resection and simultaneous removal of multiple fibroids and polyps, is the best decision I have made for myself. After years of debilitating menstrual bleeding, my gynecologist had recommended an ablation and a D&C. We do not have health insurance. The unaffordability of the procedure, led me to do research to find out if the cost of having an ablation done out of state would be cheaper. That research led me to The Center for Menstrual Disorders, where I learned that there was another surgical option other than an ablation: one with better outcomes. After reviewing the information on the CMDRC website, and talking with other women who have experienced ablation failures, I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Wortman to inquire to see if I might be a candidate for the endomyometrial resection surgery. I value the time that Dr. Wortman spent with me and my husband during the consultation: explaining both the benefits and risk of the surgery and answering the questions that we had. That time and interaction, helped me make an informed decision to have the surgery. It was a big commitment on my part to travel to Rochester, NY. for the surgery. I had to withdrew the money from my retirement account to pay for it (it was 1/3 of the cost of having the ablation and D&C), and our commute was 600 miles, each way. I considered it an investment in restoring my health. It was 100% worth it. Dr. Wortman (and his team) are professional, knowledgeable, competent and skilled. It is easy to see the meaning they have found in their profession, and their dedication in helping women. The caring hearts and compassion follow the patient from the very first appointment, to surgery and through to the follow up appointment. Each interaction ends with, “If you need us, we are just a phone call or email away.” Dr. Wortman’s medical practice is a fine example of how healthcare can and should be.

Peace of mind
Dr . Wortman took the time to answer all my questions and explained everything very well. He put my mind at ease. His office staff , especially his nurses, are the best. Thank you Dr. Wortman.

Dr. Wortman and his entire staff could not have been more welcoming and sensitive to my health issues and concerns. After suffering for many years, i have just returned from treatment with Dr. Wortman and could not be happier! From the moment you check in for your consult, until the minute you leave after your post-op follow up visit you feel so at home and so well cared for and that you are in the best hands. His follow up phone calls and emails from he and his staff really make you understand just how much they care about their patients. A-Plus Plus!! Cant thank them enough 🙂

For the past 15 years my periods were extremely heavy. I found myself soaking thru super tampons and overnight pads every 2 hours. Other doctor tried different medications and nothing worked. I was referred to Dr. Wortman by my Ob/gynecologist. Dr. Wortman was very attentive and thorough. He diagnosed my issue and recommended I have EMR performed. The procedure was done in the office. The staff was pleasant and helpful. My periods now last about 2 days and I barely have any bleeding. Im so thankful to Dr. Wortman for changing my life.

“He fixed me!”
When I met with Dr. Wortman because of particularly abnormal vaginal bleeding, the first thing he said when he examined me was, “we need to fix you”. He was more than right and followed through on his promise to me! I can’t say enough about his vast knowledge and immediately recognizing that in my case, traditional procedures were not going to be the answer. I have a laundry list of medical issues and knowing my risk factors, Dr. Wortman was convinced a hysterectomy was not the option for me. Dr. Wortman’s is transparent when working with his patients. I actually sat in his office while he discussed on the phone my “case” with my other doctors. I was present when he dictated my diagnosis and plan for surgery, etc. He made sure I was involved in the whole process, which no one does these days! He spends the time with you that you deserve as a patient. I am very pleased with the service provided by Dr. Wortman and his exceptional team. I would highly recommended the Center for Menstrual Disorders to anyone having menstrual issues. Thank you to Dr. Wortman and his team!

I came from out of state for a reoperative hysteroscopy. From the first phone call with Marcia, to meeting with Dr. Wortman and his staff, I knew I made the right decision. The entire staff was personable, professional, compassionate, and overall an excellent team! I am so thankful for the opportunity of being under the care of this amazing staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Wortman and his team to any woman looking for relief from a failed ablation!

Alleviates the fear and brings a smile to my face!
Every woman knows that some of our least favorite days are our annual GYN and our annual mammogram. Thanks to Dr. Wortman, I now only have one medical appointment a year that I dread! I did not join the patient list at Dr. Wortman’s office over 10 years ago because I had any issues – just because he was strongly recommended by my PCP after I was having a “personality conflict” with my former GYN. I was not interested in having children for a number of reasons, and Dr. Wortman supports that decision. No worries! But, then in the spring 2018, I developed a large number of polyps in my uterus, some of which were substantial. Of course my mind immediately ran to “cancer” – “I’m going to need a hysterectomy” – and worse! I was a mess, and so was my husband. Dr. Wortman recommended and carried out a few procedures to remove the polyps and take preventative measures, and at every step, we talked through things. I was never talked AT. Amazing for such a high caliber physician! I do not believe that I could have been in better hands any where in the world than I was in Dr. Wortman’s office. He alleviated all of my fears, and met my “control freak” nature with understanding and respect. He truly treats his patients as equal players in their health care. This is a rare find! I found out just this week that I am still clear of polyps 6 months after the last procedure, and the tears shed in my car after this appointment were purely happy tears! All thanks to Dr. Wortman! Dr. Wortman is the best kept secret in Rochester medicine. I fear what happens when he retires … so I forbid it! And ladies – don’t flood the appointment book now so that I cannot get in!

I have been a patient at this office for quite a few years. Be it for routine physicals, surgery, or urgent medical needs, I am always met with the same compassionate excellence. Their individualized care and treatment is beyond other physicians offices. They genuanly care about each patient. I have, and will continue to regiment Dr. Wortman and his staff to family, friends and anyone in need of care. Thank you hardly seems enough for all you do.

The surgery that Dr.Wortman performed changed my life on a monthly basis. I no longer have a fear of “accidents”. The surgery was easy and a few hours of recovery time.. the staff was wonderful and knowledgeable and make you feel at ease. I would recommend it to any woman who was having menstrual problems.

Excellent, compassionate care
Dr. Wortman performed for me, a reoperative hysteroscopy after a late term endometrial ablation failure. From the minute I walked in the door I knew I was in the right place. The staff are very professional. The environment is pleasant. Dr. Wortman takes the time to meet with you before and after all examinations. He is very thorough and explains everything clearly. The day of my procedure the staff was excellent. They took extra time with me and I felt like I was the only patient there. I am so pleased with the care I received. And, I am pleased with the outcomes. I would recommend Dr. Wortman and his team to anyone!

Great doctor and staff
I came from out-of-state to see Dr. Wortman. My experience with him and his staff, both before, during and after my surgery was exemplary. His staff is caring, knowledgeable and efficient. Dr. Wortman is an expert in his field and a brilliant doctor. If you call the office with a question for him, the staff will see if he is available to talk to you at that time. If you have dealt with any other doctors, I’m sure you realize that this is rare for any doctor. He cares and does his best to treat every patient as an individual instead of a number. I can’t say enough good things about him and his staff.
