Dr. Wiechmann was all I could have wanted in a breast doctor/surgeon and more! She explained everything to me, made me feel comfortable, and didn't make me feel like any of my questions were stupid. My surgery was successful, and she was quite accessible afterwards for follow-up questions. As an added bonus, from an aesthetic perspective, her work was impeccable and I have minimal scarring. My only complaint was that her office seemed bogged down in a Columbia-wide phone system that created long hold times and made her office more difficult to reach/schedule with than I would have liked.

Amazing. She saved my life. The hospital itself was not so great. I had a horrible stay overnight.

Dr. Wiechmann is a stellar doctor in every way. First of all, her bedside manner is warm, caring, and supportive. She took time to explain my situation in great detail. Most importantly, her no nonsense expertise and confidence put me at ease before surgery. During surgery she even played music that I like by my head. She took great care to make sure that my incision is nearly indictable. My anxiety was put at complete ease the minute I met this brilliant doctor. I cannot recommend her enough.
