i called for a second opinion regarding a recent diagnosis regarding a brain aneurysm found on an MRA but then NOT found on an angiogram. Dr. Wecht and his Physician's Assistant reviewed the discs that I provided and very thoroughly explained their opinions regarding my condition. Dr. Wecht recommended a Stroke Neurosurgeon for my headache problem. I very much appreciated his opinion and he alleviated my fears. I am very grateful that he was able to see me in a timely manner.
