Would have liked for my surgeon to check in with me the day of surgery, prior to and following surgery.

Patient | June 1, 2018

Dr Weikert is skilled beyond measure! My orthopedic surgeon in Knoxville rec. him to me due to the complex nature of the elbow replacement that I required. It turned out that he and I had known each other as undergrads at Vanderbilt 35 yrs ago!! He was brilliant, kind and talented then and has only gotten better over the years. it was an incredible comfort to know I was under the care of such a gifted doctor and caring man. I found the same to be true of his staff. if all drs were as dedicated and gifted as he, our healthcare system would be in better shape .

Provider did not listen to me - thinks pain is in my head. Did not listen to my concerns about taking Gabapentin, prescribed physical therapy which another doctor has done and had no success with this injury.
