I've had Dr. Weng see relatives and my own son, he is a great surgeon, the staff is great and friendly. I have read the reviews and not sure who this people really saw since it's the opposite of my experience.

I was referred to Dr Weng .. I have been diagnosed with arthritis in both knees. My experience with Dr Weng is that he is highly incompetent. He is indifferent to the amount of pain he inflicts with injections without a numbing agent, which he refuses to give no matter how much you beg. .His staff is abrasive and profane. I now have a Dr. that is professional, attentive and would not consider giving shots without numbing agent. the difference is night and day!!!

I've been a patient of Dr. Wengs for over 10 years. While he is a great surgeon, his staff is less than professional. My last three appointments I've waited over an hour to be seen. My surgery was delayed by three hours with no notice. It doesn't appear that they value their patients time.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE -- Dr. Weng triple-schedules patients and his office staff was unwilling to correct a scheduling error they made. The staff informed me when I arrived for my appoint that my appointment was for the preceding week; however, it was their error in scheduling the wrong week -- and I drove 2 hours from Prescott! Incredibly, Dr. Weng triple-books his patient appointments, so they couldn't fit me in. Any doctor that triple-books patients is uncaring and should be avoided.

I had arthroscopy surgery back in April that DR. Weng performed. He did an awesome job. I had no issues with my recovery. Would recommend DR Weng to anyone who needs a orthopedic surgeon. Great job! Dr Weng.

Not concerned about what happened. He told me it was not possible. He told me I was old and need to lose weight why I have knee trouble. I will never recommend this guy to anyone.

He is professional and listens to complaints. He then views the xrays and explains the problem and treatment. I do like this physician very much! I will continue to see him if needed.
