Dr. Weikert is one of the best doctors I've seen in my sixty-two years. I spoke with Dr. Weikert to get a second opinion in reference to a wrist surgery. Dr. Weikert spent 25 minutes with me explaining the procedure from beginning to end and answered questions. After, the consultation I decided to let Dr. Weikert do the surgery. After, the procedure my wrist was better than I expected. A lot better.
