While it has only been a week since my operation, I think everything has gone well. Nothing to complain about. However, he could a bit more talkative. I chalk it up to the fact that he is serious about what he does so he was probably pre-occupied.

The Dr Weiss explained everything in a manner easy to understand and provided several options for treatment. Also when asked about specialist for a family member he responded with an email by the end of the day. I was very impressed with his care and concern.

Dr Weiss is excellent, he did wrist surgery on me when he was at VASA and a year later I needed the same surgery on my other wrist. Found out that he went to OAA and followed him there and had second surgery on other wrist. Now need surgery on my hand and there was no question who I would go to.
