I was sent to Dr. Weitfeldt for an emergency colonoscopy after some findings from an ER visit. A few weeks later a surgery to remove part of my colon, my omentum and some lymph nodes. I can’t say enough about Dr. Weitfeldt and every one of her nurses and colleagues. Everyone in that office has been extremely helpful, thoroughly explained everything to me, and has been my go to when I have questions along this journey. From the front desk staff, to her wonderful nurses Melanie and Lanie, to the doctors themselves, all of them are absolutely wonderful. If you’re wanting the best, she’s the one!! Thank you all for everything!!

I saw Dr. Wietfeldt for a rectal prolapse. In scheduling my appointment her nurse diagnosed me with a hemorrhoid over the phone and her answer to everything was a spray bottle. The Doctor was skilled and took time to explain my condition. I was told I would have to do therapy to see if they could correct it without surgery, which I did. They ran out of the equipment to continue, therefore causing me to change doctors. I would highly recommend the Dr. and Sally. Not a fan of her nurse
