Patient Comments (1)
Boston, MA |
I was treated by Dr. Wein after I was the victim of an assault resulting in a large mandible fracture. The maxillofacial departments in the area were all booked for a few weeks. I mistakenly listened to Dr. Wein's advice that he could successfully perform the surgery rather than waiting for another specialist. The plates he used weren't large enough to hold the fracture & a second surgery was required elsewhere. Awful experience at Tufts & more scars resulted from requiring another surgery.
