he was very good

I was worried when I first came to Dr. Wecht. My need for honest and candid advise and direction was met without hesitation. Dr. Wecht and his entire staff helped ease my concerns and everyone spoke very honestly about what direction and options I had left. Everyone was helpful with my multiple calls back/forth as well as taking car of all my insurance questions/concerns. I had been suffering with back pain for more years than I should have and Dr. Wecht and his team were wonderful to work with. I am now almost 2 weeks post-op and haven't felt this good for years. Because of Dr. Wecht's skill and down to earth approach and bedside manner, I am now able to move without pain. I only see the upside to life as I continue to heal, but I could kick myself for not seeking Dr. Wecht out sooner. I cannot thank him, his entire staff and hospital team enough. I appreciate the way the entire team was able to calm and direct me on such a big decision of back surgery. I know I have my quality of life back and it will only continue to improve as I heal and move forward. Thank you to everyone!

I could not be happier with the care I received at Dr Wechts office. My Pre-op and post-op visits were well organized and the instructions were very easy to follow. I would recommend Dr Wecht to friends and family
