Dr. Gary J Wortz has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Very dissatisfied

I have been a patient of Dr. Wortz for sometime and I cannot begin to tell you how unhappy I am with the entire staff and especially Dr. Wortz. Starting with the staff, if you need a prescription refilled you should begin to beg them to do so at least a week prior because they say they are so "under staffed". Once the prescription does get refilled, it is usually sent to the wrong pharmacy. I'm not sure who in the office is dropping the ball, but my guess would be the nurse. As this task normally falls in her guidelines. Recently, I was on a spring break vacation, 3,000 miles away from the office, and simply needed a motion sickness prescription refilled. I did speak directly to Dr. Wortz regarding this matter, and it all comes down to him seeing me so he can bill my insurance. This was a simple request to accommodate a patient while out of the country. He would not do it without seeing me first. I went without because I could not fly home so he could bill my insurance company the $80.00 Its too bad that customer service does not exist within his office.
