This content was provided by Dr. Wiegand "I take a multi-disciplinary approach to all my patients' problems. Pills may take the edge off of severe symptoms, but often are not the only answer to relieving a person's suffering.
I strive to sit with my patients and listen, as well as I can, to their life story, free from judgement or prejudice. Together we can find a pathway from suffering to recovery."

Dr. Wiegand Says:
The emerging practice of rating physicians online is still in its infancy.
"Patient satisfaction" can be difficult to define, especially in the context of physicians' ethics and professional conduct.
Often in the mental and behavioral health fields, patients can become angry or upset at their treaters. After all, unlike other specialties, psychiatrists talk to their patients about deeply personal and sensitive topics.
