I had surgery for arthritic bone spurs in my finger. Dr Wegener is a wonderful surgeon. He is personable, efficient, and friendly, and so is the staff. They called to check on me the next morning.

Does not realized he is not Jesus Christ! Will not listen to what you are telling him. Told me he knew what was wrong with my hand before looking at it or hearing what I said. He would talk over me every time I tried to speak. Staff was no better. He spent less than a minute with me and already wanted to cut on me. Told me , "I'm the best in my field". Run away fast, very fast.

WORST God complex I've ever heard of, much less had misfortune to witness. Refused to even LOOK at my hands. Said he knew what the problem was, and "did not have to look, furthermore he would NOT." Demanded I explain unrelated medical condition, then berated me for not being able to before I had replied. Asked questions, but interrupted and talked over me, each time telling me I was wrong. He told me I chewed my fingers. I haven't had teeth for a year! Would NEVER recommend this rude BULLY.

Dr. Wegener at my appointment on July 19, 2016 was extremely unprofessional and rude. I had previously been treated by Dr. Lucus but he was out of town when I badly needed treatment for my hand pain. Dr. Wegener refused to refer to my medical records from previous treatment for the same problem, casually looked at my hand and abruptly walked out of the room. This was followed by the nurse entering the treatment room and informing me that I would not be receiving any medical treatment.

Dr. Wegener was great to work with. My husband and I saw him after my husband had and infection and open wound. He was timely, we never had to wait. He answered all of our questions and had a friendly bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone.

DR. WEGENER IS THE MOST HORRIBLE PHYSICIAN I HAVE VISITED. HE IS VERY INCONSIDERATE OF THE PATIENT'S NEEDS AND REALLY DOESN'T CARE IF THE PATIENT MEDICAL ISSUES ARE RESOLVED. DR. WEGENER'S NURSE HAS A VERY NON CHALANT ATTITUDE TOO!!!! I DON'T RECOMMEND ANYONE TO RECEIVE MEDICAL TREATMENT OR ADVICE FROM THIS PHYSICIAN.

Dr. Wegener provided me with my the worst doctor interaction ever. I took my nine year old daughter to him to help with a cut on her finger. He treated my wife and I like second class citizens and was extremely disrespectful. He was only interested in what he wanted and refused to listen to what I was trying to explain to him. Worst God complex I can imagine.
