in Mission Viejo, CA |
My daughter fractured her wrist and Dr. Weinert was so caring, patient and thorough. Truly a wonderful doctor
in Ontario, CA |
Dr. Weinert treated my newborn baby's clubfeet. He did not fully correct them AND his casts weren't put on correctly and therefore causes the cast the SLIP. We had to spend A LOT of TIME and MONEY to fix the problems that his casting caused. Every time we tried to ask questions his answers were vague and unclear. He needs to retire. Never got a sorry or a call from his office when I stopped showing up for appointments and he still charged me for coming in to fix HIS casts that HE messed up.

This doctor is horrible! My son had a pre-axial polydactyly surgery 5 weeks ago. Dr. Weinert promised us that the finger would look like normal person's. But now my baby's thumb looks like 2 finger glued into one! It's horrible and doesn't look normal at all! The doctor's answer to that is-- this doesn't affect his daily life! And he didn't want to communicate after that. I am so horrified at this point and have to find another doctor to fix the problem!
