I'm living so good

July 28, 2016

Dr. Wecht is a true and very knowledgeable professional. This was not my first visit to his office. I'd seen him before for other neurological issues. But always, he addressed them with the utmost concern, professionalism, competency, and desire to help. UPMC's hiring physicians like him is why I stay with UPMC. Thank you for having him onboard.

excellent care from this provider and his staff

July 20, 2016

Dr. Wecht was very attentive & answered all questions w/ courtesy and accuracy. I feel very comfortable having him perform my surgery.

would highly recommend

June 01, 2016

Efficient and effective. A follow-up call regarding the x-ray results was received later that afternoon. A follow up question via myUPMC was answered the very next day. Some of the medical language in the report in myUPMC required me to look up the terms. Why aren't images made available?

Dr. Wecht and staff were very professional and caring. He took care with me and explained all possibilities

May 04, 2016

Huge sigh of relief post this procedure. I'm looking forward to a full recovery and so thankful that the excruciating pain is gone! I also appreciate how accommodating Dr. W's staff was with scheduling my follow up appointments, and providing the documentation I needed for my employer. Great staff; usually a reflection of what cascades from the top down. PS: Denise is a gem, hold onto her!

every experience I had with this provider was very good.

I put my full trust and confidence in Dr Wecht as he removed a very large brain tumor from me 5 years ago. I thank him and God for guiding his hands thru the surgery with a very dangerous operation.. I came out of it with minimal health problems. Thank you!
