My mother is a patient of Dr. Wei and I have to say out of every doctors office we've been to this is by far my favorite. Dr. Wei is friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and caring, and you never wait long periods of time to see her. We also love her receptionist Barbara.

I have been going to Dr. Wei for 6 years. When I first went to her, my kidneys were in bad shape. I had a problem with them when I was young, but never went to a specialist. My son told me to go to her when he saw my lab results. Dr. Wei told me my blood pressure and gout acid were too high. After teaching me how to lower them, everything started to get better. My kidneys are now doing better than ever before, and I feel better than when I was much younger. She is a miracle worker!

Went to Dr. Wei's facility. First and foremost her Assistant is a pleasure. She is very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Wei takes the time (1 hr) to review your labs and referring physician's findings to help put you at ease. She is efficient and knows the Nephrology profession very well

I recommend Dr. Wei because she is knowledgeable, friendly and is careful. I was nervous about my kidney problems but she was really good about explaining everything to me. I had a lot of questions and she answered all of them. It just felt like I knew her from before. I told my girlfriends about her already and will bring my uncle to her because all he knows is that his kidneys are bad. I told him that that's not a diagnosis!

Dr. Wei is an exceptional physician. She is extremely intelligent (she completed her undergraduate training at MIT) and knowledgeable. In addition, she is compassionate, caring, and kind, and she takes the time to educate and explain the rationale behind her treatment decisions. She is meticulous and detail-oriented as well. I feel very fortunate to have found this talented nephrologist.

Dr. Wei takes really good care of my mother. She is very patient with us and my mother liked her from the first visit. She doesn't talk down to you like a lot of other doctors and she makes you feel better no matter what kind of day you are having. My mother's pressure is normal now with Dr. Wei. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my mother's pressure or kidney problems. If you have high pressure or kidney problems you should go see Dr. Wei.

She spends more time with me than any other doctor. She takes her time to explain everything to me and makes sure I understand why she is doing what she is doing. I had other doctors that didn't listen to me, and ignored my problems, but not her. If there is any question, she picks up the phone and calls the pharmacy or other doctors so everyone is on the same page. Dr. Wei is my favorite doctor!
