Dr. Wecht is very pleasant, always has a smile and makes you feel comfortable.

Dr. asked me what was I doing there? Never told me what my MRI showed or discussed long time expectations. Asked why I was seeing a neurosurgeon? Made me feel like I should have seen some other type doctor or none at all. After I had my ruptured brain aneurysm, my doctor said from the neck up see a neurosurgeon, from the neck down an orthopedist. Dr. Wecht never even said if my pain got worse to call him. Was dismissive about my stenosis, but my mother had two surgeries for stenosis. I obviously wasn't going to be a surgery patient for him, so he wasn't interested. Never even said if the chiropractor was a waste of time for me. Never saw a doctor that didn"t tell you what your MRI showed. Disappointed for sure!
