Patient | October 24, 2016

Providers care was good but explanation about side effects of injection minimize what I would experience. After manipulation, little advice given about how to ensure maximum results.
Patient | October 18, 2016

My symptoms did not seem to fit the profile for his preferred surgeries. After this was determined, there wasn't much else he was interested in hearing. Also, he did not inform me that by hands could or would lose feeling for several hours after steroid injections in my wrists. I was not able to safely drive afterwords and had to pull over because I could no longer feel the steering wheel. When I called the office to discuss this I was not able to get a prompt explanation. I drove home steering with my forearms, and was unable to work for the remainder of the day which I was not expecting and was not prepared for.

Dr. Weikert is an excellent surgeon & compassionate person.
Patient | February 25, 2016

I've already recommended Dr Weikert. I was incredibly impressed by his knowledge, patience and general bedside manner. He is quite well-respected and well-known in the community based upon my research (I just relocated from Manhattan) so I was pleasantly surprised to discover that his manner was quite genial. I was a bit fearful of what he might discover the week after my injury but he was quick to set my expectations -- and also set my mind at ease. In short, he's just a good human being.
Patient | February 22, 2016

The care received was excellent but the wait was excessive.
Patient | January 18, 2016

Dr. Wiekert was very calm & reassuring.
Patient | January 15, 2016

Dr. Weikert was very friendly, courteous and extremely knowledgable. He explained the procedure on a patient's level of understanding, explaining everything in great detail. He came highly recommended by both my Rheumatologist and Family Practitioner.
Patient | January 12, 2016
