BEST dr visit I've ever experienced! Was SO impressed that he took time to talk and explain to my child in depth what the procedure experience would be like, and answered all the possible questions before we could even ask.

Dr Weikert was the 3rd provider I spoke to about my condition and by far the most informative and detailed about my pending surgery and expectations

Dr. Weikhert was AMAZING. He was able to help me. He listened intently and was able to explain in terms, that I could understand, what was going on with my wrist/elbow. I am so glad I found Dr. Weikert. 2 friends recommended him. I cant say enough good things about my experience with him.
