Dr. Weeks is amazing and gave me tremendous relief with my carpal tunnel pain.
in Greenbelt, MD |
I've been a patient of Dr.Weeks for 2 years. The first year I had swelling behind both patellas and this year I had a dislocated knee. He was not quick to recommend surgery as most doctors do and suggested a few weeks of rehab which has worked well both times. The staff is great now! Previously, there was a secretary there that did not know how to work the system and failed to schedule every appointment she tried to make, but the regular
Initially I was sceptical after seeing some other reviews but Dr. Weeks took his time to answer all my concerns and map out treatment plan. The front desk was professional. The wait was a bit long but he doesn't rush you in and out like some doctors offices. My only issues were questions during the initial phone contact which was explained when I arrived at office and being called the day before to reschedule but things do happen. All in all pleased with visit and will continue treatment there.
