Des Moines, IA |
Dr. Weresh did surgery on me when I broke my femur and growth plate when I was in high school. He is an excellent Dr. and is so kind and compassionate when following up with my after surgery progress and results.

Dr Weresh and his staff are fantastic! Just had a complicated knee replacement due to multiple previous knee surgeries and I can easily see the end of the process. The suturing was excellent and has healed in far less time than I would have thought. Now it's all about regaining strength and flexibility. Again, I'm extremely happy with his work.
Thanks for your kinds words and for taking the time to share them with us.

I had a total knee replacement 5 months ago. Dr. Weresh and his staff have been very supportive and caring. The TKR has been a success and I am very happy I had the procedure done.
Thank you for taking the time to comment. We believe Dr. Weresh is top-notch as well!
