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.

Waited 40 minutes. Left. Won’t be back. Really dislike it when docs don’t respect your time. I’ll find someone else.
