You cannot do better. Kind, listens well, doesn’t rush to do surgery unless other options have been explored. I would send anyone I cared about to Dr. Wiedrich.

Excellent knowledge paired with great demeanor and "bed side" manners. I had some nerve damage from a shoulder surgery and Dr. Wiedrich didn't candy coat anything but was optimistic, encouraging and very thorough in his helping with my condition. I've since referred numerous friends and family to him and they all agree that he is everything you want in a Doctor.

Dr Weidrich is not a good doctor at all! He can & has been bought by the insurance comp. He will give a false report & mess with your health for the right price! If I were you & you’re looking for a good doctor then I highly recommend you find another doctor and stay as far away from this so called doctor if I were you!! Because your health isn’t his first priority. How much he can get paid from the insurance company to get you back to work no matter how much pain you you are in!!!

Always on time. Explains everything thoroughly. My surgery went smoothly, and you can't see a scar.

Michele Casey in Park Ridge, Illinois – Nov 10, 2016
After a year and a half of misdiagnosis by 5 other upper extremity specialists who told me I had arthritis I was in constant pain couldn't eat dress myself or drive. Dr Wiedrich sent me for an ultrasound (I'd had 3 prior to coming to him) he immediately diagnosed tenosynovitis. He operated and found scarring that occurred from the lengthy non treatment. Surgery went smoothly I recovered the use of my hand and independence Thank God for Dr Wiedrich
