in Murfreesboro, TN |
I highly recommend Dr Weikert and staff to expertly care for any issues concerning your hands. He was very professional and honest, did not recommend any unnecessary treatments as others have. All the staff I came in contact with were extremely helpful and I was greeted by each one I came in contact with. Will gladly recommend this office to anyone.

Think that Dr. Weikert needs to be a little more empathetic and not doubt what the patient says, especially when it comes to needing to use hands for a profession. I was told to "Find another job" which leads me to think: dude, you use your hands for your profession? Have a little compassion, understanding, and empathy. Realize you have a great deal of education, but work on your social skills and trust what people say -- you might be a better physician.

I can't even tell I had an injury. My tendons in my hand were severely frayed. My finger was locking up. I stabbed my palm with a glass pipette. My mother is a court reporter. All the reporters know dr. Weikert as the man to see. Highly recommended.
