Dr. Wyss is an excellent Doctor who I have been seeing for 5 plus years. He is extremely well educated, takes the time to listen, and always gives me options on how to deal with my back, hip, neck and shoulder pain. He is very kind and empathetic with a great bedside manner. His staff is also extremely helpful when anything is needed. Highly recommend him!

Dr Wyss is the best. He’s been treating me for 5+ years and is always thoughtful and clear in his communications. He does not jump right to surgery, and is very thoughtful about course of care before automatically assuming that surgery is necessary. His experience as a physical therapist before becoming a doctor makes a huge difference because he understands all of the alternate paths, which I have always really appreciated. Highly recommend!!

Dr. Wyss and staff are absolutely great. He's treated me, my son, and my brother in law. Dr. Wyss is thorough, takes time to explain the situation and all your options, doesn't push 1 direction or another - let's you weigh it out, and really appears to be a nice person. That must be infectious because everyone on his staff is nice and easy to work with as well. I highly recommend Dr. Wyss.

Dr Wyss is so incredibly knowledgeable! I went to see him fo my low back. He was super compassionate as well as patient. Aside from be very thorough with exam, testing and diagnosis - I was also very impressed with his background of being a Physical Therapist for years before going to med school to become a doctor. I refer him to everyone with orthopedic issues.

I am seeing Dr. Wyss for back pain. A very good experience and highly recommend him. He is affiliated with HSS and everything is focused on giving you a very good patient experience. I feel like I am in very good hands seeing him. His staff and fellow are very nice and helpful as well. And he is a very nice guy.
