Patient Comments (2)
Olympia, WA |
My first appointment with Dr. Zechmann he gave me restrictions that said I could lift up to 50 pounds when I could barely lift ten. When I expressed my concern he told me that if I didn't like it, I could go back to my L&I doctor and say the big mean doctor was asking too much of me. He seemed knowledgeable, but he barely spent any time with me and didn't listen to most of what I said. I'm glad he put in a request for a second opinion.

The procedure performed failed. The post op instructions resulted in an infection. The follow-up was I don't know how to fix it. with a referral months out. His over confidence, lack of experience, and apparent unwillingness to figure out how to solve the problem prevent any other rating.
