I would not recommend Dr. Wei! He does not take the time to even discuss your situation. Of course we did not like hearing that he would not be willing to operate, but the least he could have done is showed a little compassion and spent a few minutes talking with us. It was like pulling teeth to get him to answer the few questions he allowed us to ask him. I hate giving someone a bad review but he was very arrogant and rude.
