Absolutely excellent. I have experience to compare this with, and I want to express that the care from the receptionist, physician's assistant Larry, and Dr. Wecht was exceptional.

liked the visit overall

February 16, 2017

the Dr and his team were very friendly and considerate. after surgery, no more pain! would recommend him in a heartbeat!

February 13, 2017

The doctor looked at me as if he was listening closely, but I think he was amused by my choice of words. I asked him about it and he replied that he thought my choice of words was unusual to describe my symptoms. I felt embarrassed as he continued to look at me was a slight look of amusement instead of interest or concern. He then gave general recommendations towards prophylactic core strengthening exercises... which is fine, but diminishes the reason I came to the office in the first place. In fact, he suggested that I could get an MRI if I wanted to and suggested that I was the type of person who goes to doctors simply to collect data about myself... such as expensive tests like MRI data. This was insulting. I had brought a previous MRI from a similar event from 9 years ago. I thought it would be helpful to have a point of comparison with new diagnostic data? In summary, the doctor was arrogant and not as compassionate as I would have hoped as well as being dismissive. These qualities make his suggestions slightly less effective since I have less faith in the source of these recommendations.
