Dr. Unger is fantastic, as is the entire staff at WOSM. I've never had a bad experience and the physicians take the time to explain the diagnosis as well as treatment options. I would highly recommend Dr. Unger and the other specialists at WOSM.

Knee replacements each knee four years apart. Very smooth uncomplicated recovery both times. Competent beyond question. No, he's not warm and fuzzy ... for sure. But recommend seeing him for your knee and going to a bar for friendship.

Complaint

I would give Dr. Unger the lowest rating possible. I had swelling from the post-op period of his surgery until a year and ten months. He had no suggestions for a solution. Now I have learned that the lower part of the device he installed in my knee is loose and is responsible for the swelling. I have been losing bone and he has suggested no treatment or solution. I think he is irresponsible.
