In addition to being a wonderful doctor, Dr. Wiegand is always a very kind gentleman, no matter how busy the office may be on any given day . I am fortunate to have been one of his patients for almost two years.

Kind. Brilliant. Compassionate. I was sent to Dr. Wiegand after my routine cataract surgery became anything but routine. I knew immediately that I was in the best possible care. Unfortunately, I only saw him twice as he was just about to leave for his vacation. Fortunately, he passed me along to another equally remarkable doctor in the practice, Dr. Jeffrey Heirer. We are beyond blessed to live in the Boston area and have access to these doctors. People travel from across the globe to seek their expertise.
