this doctor always maintained an attitude of indifference with me. I feel he believes that the fact I had a drug issue for even a short time in my life.? that I am not worth helping. that I'll never be worth helping.

Dr. Widmaier was good at telling me what medicine to take, but showed little to no empathy/sympathy to me. He came off like he didn't care/annoyed.

I am EXTREMELY pleased with Dr. Widmaier. I am happy he was the surgeon on call during my car accident. He has been very professional and definitely goes above and beyond when discussing my course of treatment. He makes sure I understand everything as he is certainly thorough at each and every appointment. I am terrified of surgeries and the thought of having another one scares me beyond belief, but Dr. Widmaier's professionalism and in depth knowledge gives me a sense of ease. I would absolutely hands down recommend Dr. Widmaier to anyone who is in need of orthopedic services such as the ones he deals with daily. Geisinger is truly blessed to have him on staff!!

Dr widmaier worked on the right femur, he should have replaced the right knee while doing this surgery. ______ has had pain for two years prior to the accident. I believe he did not even look at or consider fixing the knee. We asked him prior to the surgery.
