I saw Dr Wei after 3 TCO docs told me I needed either fusion or laminectomy. Severe pain in right upper buttocks..Dr. Wei diagnosed SI joint inflammation and sent me to Dave Everson at Nova Care for PT and after 10 days my pain went from 8 to 1. He saved me...other docs missed it. See Dr Wei before you do any surgery. He’s not only the expert in town for giving shots for pain, he’s also brilliant when diagnosing. Very precise, excellent communicator, and most important I trust his judgement....and just a terrific person with very easy access office location and a very warm and friendly office atmosphere.

Has no bedside manner. Very rude. Kept sending me to PT. I had already been 20 times. Seems like he was frustrated with the PT people and took it out on me.
