I had previous surgery and had pain after surgery that woud not be resolved. After 1 1/2 years post surgery I sought a second opinion. Dr said sometimes people just don't get better. After three years post surgery I have to have another surgery by another physician to resolve a problem that should have been fixed. Dr wetzel also sent me to PT which had NO effect on my condition. He seems like a nice person but I wish woud have owned up to the problem that still existed

I would definitely recommend Dr. Wetzel in a heartbeat. I am pain free after a long time! I can walk, climb steps and even walk my dog, all without even limping. He was (is) fantastic. I am most appreciative and cannot thank him enough!!!!!

I had a positive experience with the care I received from Dr. Wetzel and his staff. He listened to all of my concerns and took the time to go over my treatment plan. The outcome of my surgery could not have been better. I had ACDF surgery and am now pain free and back to my normal activities.
He would not listen to me when I explained my symptoms and recommended therapy that could have permanently damaged my spine, glad I got a second opinion, I researched and found that I may have Cauda equina syndrome, this was confirmed by another doctor and needed immediate surgery, he Said trust me, you'll be fine with a few weeks of therapy, that could have left me with no feeling from my waste down
