Thank you for recommending Dr. Weinzapfel to your family and friends!
Evansville, IN |
Dr. Weinzapfel has done my upper neck fusion and now my lower back fusion. From the beginning, he listened to me and we tried many things before the surgery. He speaks in terms I can understand and let me know exactly what to expect. I am doing wonderful and recommend him to all my friends. Rare to find a Dr who listens and is not arrogant. All my family will go to himif they need help with their back because of what they have seen with me.
Thank you for your 5-star rating and wonderful comments about Dr. Weinzapfel!
