Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wei "I am a Board-certified orthopedic surgeon with a sub-specialty certification in sports medicine. I believe in meeting my patients' individual needs by carefully listening to their problems. One of the most important things I need to know is how the physical problem affects the patient's life. I will conduct a thorough evaluation and develop a treatment plan to return them to as active and pain-free of a lifestyle as possible."

Patient Comments (8)
The best! Everyone I know who got their shoulder fixed by him got better, and so did I.
in Providence, RI |
What a not nice person he is.
in Waterford, CT |
Good doc
in East Lyme, CT |
His new building is awesome. New staff is great. He is finally working out of a place that matches his bedside manner and skills.
in Stonington, CT |
At one time years ago he was rated a Top Doc and very good. I don't know if he became over whelmed with to many patients or lost his interest in his job, but now he is rushed and callous. He doesn't care to follow up on anything and if he cant fix the issue in the 5 minutes he allows you, he sends you on to other Doctors. He never even finished my knee injections after the first one. He sent me to a rheumatologist for a second opinion, then failed to complete the series of shots after that.
Groton, CT |
I need to get a second opinion because recovery was stated to be just a few weeks. 6 months later and I still feel worse after surgery than before surgery with no other diagnosis for cause of my problem than physical therapy. It is known that you see him for less than 5 minutes after waiting more than an hour in the waiting room.
in Groton, CT |
Guys a little busy, but he gets the right diagnosis and always makes me better
in Groton, CT |
I don't expect much in the way of bedside manner or compassion from a specialty surgeon but wow! This guy takes the cake for absolute worse. He has absolutely zero respect or concern for patients. He is better, of course, than anyone else is and his time is far more
