Experience was very good, very pleased with this provider's care.

August 25, 2016

Dr. sounded really sure of himself and that really put me at ease.

August 25, 2016

Felt I was wasting the Dr.s time, He had no opinion as to a possible diagnosis, which is why I came. in other words unless you need surgery he is not interested in seeing you. Also, he brought up my anxiety, which is fine, but I have dealt with anxiety for 40 plus years, and I can assure you the problems I have had in the last eight weeks, pain, etc , has NOTHING to do with anxiety. Very disappointed with my appt. Waste of both Dr and my time and my money.

Dr. Wecht and his staff were professional, compassionate and very helpful. Dr Wecht spent time explaining exactly what treatment was needed and why, even going so far as to show me on the MRI pictures. I would gladly recommend him to my family and friends if the need should arise.
