      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.

      My shoulder's perfect!!

      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.

      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

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Wei's Care Philosophy

      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.
