Dr Weis is wonderful. I went to him for a second opinion on surgery and thank god I did. He had me up and walking after 5 months of chronic back pain. He looked at my MRI and said I can fix this is 1 hour and by god he did. If you have back problems this IS THE MAN TO SEE!! IIt was a miracle. I wish I knew about him earlier I would not have suffered so long. I was bed ridden for 2 months getting the run around from idiot do tors wanting to hack me up. I saw him once and 5 days later was surger

I had surgery performed by Dr. Weis 2 months ago and I am ecstatic with the results. He takes the time to explain the condition and how to rectify it. I fully recommend him and his staff for anybody who is currently dealing with back pain/injuries. Thanks again!

Five minute visit. Did not even offer any suggestions, ask us if we had any questions. Ask to see me walk all of three feet. Just very cold towards us maybe because of another Doctors imprint all over my back and neck. Just did not seem compassionate at all. Felt my feet through my shoes. Worst Doctor visit I ever had. Would not recommend to anyone.
