Best decision ever
Self-verified patient of Dr. Morris Wortman - Posted on May 7th, 2021
2 years of misery, excruciating pain, wrong diagnoses, running from hysterectomy as the only option. If this sounds like you, I beg you to see this facility. We flew from Orlando to Rochester and had a minimally invasive USG hysteroscopy. I felt immediately better. IMMEDIATELY. Zero pain post op. I wish I’d found them so much sooner. You are in fantastic hands with this group and you won’t go wrong with any procedure they would recommend. Wonderful, experienced, caring people who have worked together a long time and will accept you into their family and take care of you from beginning to end. I wouldn’t hesitate to return should I need something else addressed. A million thank yous!
Worth The Trip

I found Dr. Wortman when I was researching Late Onset Ablation Failure. I was in significant pain more often than not, and the last appointment I had with my local doctor ended with, “Let me know when you would like to schedule your hysterectomy.” There was apparently nothing else they could do for me. With all of the complications that can occur after even a subtotal hysterectomy, along with the extensive time it takes to recover from one, I was highly motivated to avoid it if possible. Once Dr. Wortman had all of my relevant records, he called me personally and went over my condition and how he would be able to help me. There was no pressure, throughout the process he only gave me his recommendations and left all decisions entirely up to me. I am so, SO glad I decided to make the trip to Rochester. Throughout the entire process I felt completely comforted and cared for by Dr. Wortman and his team. Recovery was a breeze, the next day I even drove most of the 500+ miles back home myself. There was very little pain, and I returned to my normal routine pretty much immediately. I’m sure I couldn’t say the same had I gone through with a hysterectomy. I highly recommend this clinic, even if you have to travel it is SO worth it.
Best Dr. Ever

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 was impressed by Dr. Wortman's attention to detail on my particular issues, and I especially appreciated that he offered me varied treatment options. Being from out of town, I expected the process to be complicated, but they made everything very easy. Amy and all of the nurses that helped care for me during treatment stand out for the exceptional care they provided.
DR. WORTMAN - YOU WILL NEVER FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR LIKE HIM!

I have never written a recommendation for a medical practice or provider – until now. I hope this review leads you to Dr. Morris Wortman. Healthcare often feels more like a business than patient care, unless you are a patient of The Center for Menstrual Disorders. Your health, your fears, your concerns, your time will be never be compromised. You will be Dr. Wortman’s priority. He is a rare gem that has perfected the elusive combination of medical expertise and unparalleled patient care. Not only will you receive exceptional medical care, you will receive the utmost respect. I was speechless that Dr. Wortman’s team gave me consistent updates and apologies when my appointment was delayed a few minutes. A few minutes?! I have waited for an hour at other offices with zero acknowledgment. This is just a small introduction of what you can expect at Dr. Wortman's office. Numerous staff members have told me on different occasions that they would work for Dr. Wortman for free. I have never witnessed such respect and dedication. However, once I met Dr. Wortman, I completely understood. His expert care is not only comprehensive, but compassionate, efficient and personalized. Your appointments will be given the time you deserve. You will avoid the anxiety and worry that can arise from unanswered questions and concerns. When I have had new questions arise after leaving my appointment, I called the office expecting to leave a message. I was wrong. Dr. Wortman quickly answered and spoke with me personally. The ability to be seen quickly is invaluable. Previous medical offices trained me that I must wait regardless of my concerns - the doctor was always too busy or the schedule was full for days or weeks. The last time I had an issue and called The Center for Menstrual Disorders, I was asked if I could be there within an hour. I am often asked why I travel so far to see Dr. Wortman. It is simple. I would rather travel to see Dr. Wortman and his team than choose a doctor out of convenience. Feeling confident in my healthcare is priceless. The ability to speak openly and have my concerns truly heard is priceless. Leaving with answers, a plan, and peace of mind is priceless. You will not just be a patient of Dr. Wortman's - you will be a part of his team. You will never be made to feel inferior, despite his vast knowledge and expertise. You will not be forgotten when you leave his office. You will find a true partner in navigating your healthcare needs. I feel so fortunate to have found this doctor. It would be selfish to not share my experience with other patients. I only wish I had found the team at The Center for Menstrual Disorders sooner. If you find yourself at Dr. Wortman's practice - you will not regret it.

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.
4-Years and counting!!!

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!

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.
We came from out of state ....

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.
I can't thank Dr. Wortman and his team enough!

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.
IUD with IV Conscious Sedation
Self-verified patient of Dr. Morris Wortman - Posted on March 11th, 2020
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!
