Patient | February 23, 2017

Had no regard for my concerns. Blew me off to go see other doctors.
Patient | February 23, 2017

Dr. Weikert is a phenomenal physician. He is kind, considerate, patient, understanding- he makes you feel like you are his number one priority. He never rushes the patient-provider interaction, he always listens to my concerns and takes them into consideration when making a collaborative plan. He engages me in the decision-making process, he is warm. I don't enjoy getting hand injections for my arthritis, but he makes the experience pleasant. I would and have recommended him to friends and family needing orthopedic hand care.

Patient | October 24, 2016

Dr Weikert is wonderful he is kind and easy to talk to. He is a fantastic surgeon he has operated on me before. I am so very blessed to have him doing the work on me.
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.
Patient | October 17, 2016
