in Spring, TX |
Dr. Wetzel treated us like family!!! Dr. Wetzel treated my son for a broken bone. The minute we walked into the waiting room and were greeted by the receptionist we felt welcomed and comfortable. Dr. Wetzel is very down to earth, caring, and extremely professional (even with his humor). He answered all my questions, addressed all concerns, and got my teenage son to like him (not an easy task). I am very grateful to have found such an awesome doctor to treat my son.

Dr. Wetzel is by far the best doctor I've ever seen for any type of injury. He was specific, detailed, and extremely knowledgeable about what I needed and what I needed to do to make sure I was back to normal if not better. I tore my ACL and he repaired it with surgery. I had some post op complications and he has helped me without hesitation.
The Woodlands, TX |
Dr. Wetzel was great with my 10 yr. old son, who came in with an injured elbow. He was very thorough, but gentle with his exam. My son went to an urgent care a week ago and they said the X-ray was negative for a break. After a week of a painful arm in a bandage and sling, we went to Dr. Wetzel. Unfortunately the urgent care had misdiagnosed it and he had a broken elbow. Thanks to Dr. Wetzel, he is now in a cast getting the care he needs. The entire staff was terrific.
