spent less than 3 minutes in the room. Although he did a fundoscopic exam, I guarantee you that he couldn't tell you what color my eyes were. I dont enjoy going to this provider but he is in network so I grin and bear it once a year.
Patient | October 21, 2018

Eye exam, so no real problems!
Patient | October 16, 2018

I will recommend this provider BUT will warn them the appointment they wait 2 hours to see the provider.
Patient | September 17, 2018

Patient | September 16, 2018

Doesn't spend enough time with patients. I was with him approximately 3 minutes. My husband and I both feel rushed when seeing this provider.
Patient | September 12, 2018

This is the first tiem I was told I had cataracts and when I started to ask questions about when they should be removed I was told to "just let us know when you want them removed." I would have liked to have discussed this further at this visit, but was told to call when I was ready. I would have liked to have discussed options at that time, but felt the doctor did not. This may be due to needing more time than is allotted for an annual visit, but I don't know. I just felt that was not the appropriate time to continue the discussion.
Patient | September 11, 2018

Satisfied with visit.
Patient | August 29, 2018

I felt good when I left.
Patient | August 29, 2018

I did not feel that examination was thorough and he just said "You are fine."
Patient | August 29, 2018

Dr. Weikert and his team are great providers! He is very busy, but very kind and listens.
Patient | August 28, 2018

I have seen this doctor for years and am very satisfied.
Patient | August 27, 2018

Great Service
Patient | August 27, 2018

Always good.
Patient | August 22, 2018

was in the office 1 1/2 hours, wated in one area, assistant took me back to ask questions, basic eyesight test, pressure check then to another waiting area for extended wait. the to see Dr who rushed in, talked fast and literally spent less than 5 minutes w me.
Patient | August 15, 2018

Very pleased wlth Dr Weikert.
Patient | August 13, 2018

Have recommended Dr. Weikert to several individuals.
Patient | August 13, 2018

best eye doctor
Patient | August 6, 2018

Dr. Weikert was very busy and I felt completely unheard and totally dismissed. My vision was never refracted by his assistant. I was very disappointed.
Patient | July 31, 2018

Given the sheer volume of patients, Dr. Weikert does an excellent job of explaining your situation and taking care of any issues or problems which arise.
Patient | July 17, 2018

The Dr. was pretty quick in examining me and when I asked about my other eye, as well as my dry eye issue, he said that wasn't what I was here for. I didn't feel as if he really cared about me.
Patient | July 10, 2018

Dr. Daniel Weikert is the most wonderful and caring doctor. I feel so fortunate to have him to take care of my eyes.
Patient | July 3, 2018

he took plenty of time ,addressing my concerns. no push to make a snap decision
Patient | June 30, 2018

he only spent 3 minutes with me and I felt rushed out the door.
Patient | June 25, 2018

he does not specialize in the eye disease I have so it was a pointless visit. I'm sure he's great for his specialty but that's not why I was there.
Patient | June 25, 2018

Short and to the point.
Patient | June 21, 2018

I have recommended Danny Weikert many, many times to family and friends.
Patient | June 21, 2018

Everything was very good.
Patient | June 20, 2018

This was my third visit with Dr Weikert after being referred from Dr Kroll's office upon his departure. I appreciate a physician that is thorough and attentive to individual needs. I have had multiple surgeries on my eye from an MVA several years ago and choose a specialist practice to maximize the health of my damaged eyes. I will look for a physician that isn't as busy as his practice seems to be so that I feel assured that my visual needs are being met. I know that we are all busy and distracted in today's healthcare works, however, I don't ever recall spending less than 5 minutes in an exam room with a specialty physician. Nothing against his expertise or person....I just prefer a setting that isn't so rushed.
Patient | June 2, 2018

Dr. Weikert did cataract surgery and was excellent! He is very kind and excellent physician! One of my favorite doctors and I-have been to many!
Patient | June 2, 2018

Very well respected Dr, I am satisfied and would recommend him to others
Patient | May 17, 2018

I have recommended them already and my dad comes there also.
Patient | May 14, 2018

very professional and prompt
Patient | May 1, 2018

He treated my problem, provided advise, follow up appointment in a week. I'm a happy camper!
Patient | May 1, 2018

This was a one-year check-up, so no deep questions/answers were really necessary. Dr. Weikert is very personable and did not seem in a hurry to get patients in and out. The prep staff took care of paperwork. The process is very efficient!
Patient | April 30, 2018

I had heard of Dr. Weikert and am very happy that he is my Ophthalmologist.
Patient | April 30, 2018

It was a very god visit and fruitful
Patient | April 23, 2018

I would recommend him, but hope he spent more time patient
Patient | April 23, 2018

If you are interested in surgery, he may be quite good, I only want surgery as a LAST option.
Patient | April 22, 2018

Dr. Walters - love him!
Patient | April 18, 2018

Patient | April 16, 2018

This was just my annual eye exam.
Patient | April 14, 2018

No complaints
Patient | April 10, 2018

Most of time was spent waiting and seeing the technicians, very short consultation with Dr at the end.
Patient | April 10, 2018

as usual good care was received.
Patient | April 9, 2018

Dr. Wiekert is an excellent dr. and one dr. that is very key to me re: proper eye care.
Patient | April 9, 2018

I certainly understood the doctor's words but his response to a question was that all the information was in the folder that I would be given when I set up my appt.
Patient | March 26, 2018

Not much time with doctor. I imagine he felt rushed being so far behind. Maybe too many appointments are being made too close together.
Patient | March 6, 2018

He does not do contact lens anymore. I wear contact lens. I am going to find a new doctor. Not happy about that
Patient | March 6, 2018

Rated it fair due to the long wait times.
Patient | March 5, 2018

just wish after a lengthy wait time that provider didn't rush me through
Patient | February 27, 2018

Provider very congenial and pleasant. Covered all areas related to my purpose for being there.
Patient | February 26, 2018

I already referred my husband. He made an appointment the day of my visit.
Patient | February 21, 2018

The doctor answered questions very briefly.
Patient | February 20, 2018

need to wait to see how my next visit goes according to scheduled appointment before making any recommendations
Patient | February 19, 2018

Patient | February 15, 2018

An excellent eye doctor, really cared about my eye problems , examined my eyes thoroughly and talked to me at length about his findings and what he thought I should do.
Patient | February 15, 2018

very little time for personal care---I was just patient #300
Patient | February 13, 2018

after waiting forever I felt rushed and overwhelmed with info in appt. no notes to take home. just had to remember them. dr and staff very courteous and kind.
Patient | February 13, 2018

Danny Weikert is very good. Too many appointments to keep the scheduled times.
Patient | February 12, 2018

Dr. Weikert has helped me on numerous occasions in a professional and expert way. I am very thankful to have him as my eye doctor and have complete confidence in him.
Patient | February 10, 2018

my family has been seeing Dr Weikert for many years, he's a great Dr
Patient | January 30, 2018

I feel Dr. Weikert is a very good doctor. I don't think he spends enough time with the patient.
Patient | January 30, 2018

wait time unacceptable
Patient | January 15, 2018

doctor knowledgeable but doesn't spend a lot of time with you
Patient | January 15, 2018

He spent well less than 1 minute with me. He answers questions when asked but does so shortly with as little information as possible and acts as if he can't wait to leave the room to see another patient. I believe his technical ability is good but his "chairside manner" is poor. I would not recommend him to others because he does not spend enough time with patients. He is only adequate for me because I am well informed ahead of time. I am considering changing eye care physicians.
Patient | January 13, 2018

over the years I have received the best of care from Dr. Weikert - yearly visits and surgeries
Patient | January 8, 2018

He is the best!!!
Patient | January 3, 2018

His explanations were given too rapidly.
Patient | December 31, 2017

He was very rushed - I don't feel like he took the time to check the overall health of my eyes - my main reason for coming in.
Patient | December 22, 2017

was great
Patient | December 18, 2017

Very good experience.
Patient | December 18, 2017

good guy and fine opthamologist
Patient | December 12, 2017

I recommend Dr. Weikert to everyone and always have and always will.
Patient | December 11, 2017

I was a little taken back from his disinterest in my previous records I provided him to review. Some of these questions do not relate. This was my first visit. He was thorough but did not spend much time with me. He is the only physician at the office & it was very busy.
Patient | December 8, 2017

Patient | December 7, 2017

This Dr performed the surgery for my husband and he really liked him and what he has done for him, so that's the reason I have decided to choose this Dr. I' m sure he knows what he is doing for my eyes!
Patient | December 7, 2017

It was a very good experience.
Patient | November 8, 2017

Best eye doctor in Nashville
Patient | October 30, 2017

It was my first visit. He was even more than I expected in his time and explanation of what to expect.
Patient | October 1, 2017

He's a real pro
Patient | September 27, 2017

Patient | September 25, 2017

If I recommend him to others, I would do so with the caveat that you may have to wait for an hour before being seen.
Patient | September 25, 2017

Overall, quick in and out yearly exam - nothing new - nothing to follow up on unless there is a change.
Patient | September 22, 2017
