Their systems are not set up to sync with ZocDoc so I had to re-fill out all of the paperwork. Not a big deal but frustrating nonetheless. The appointment went quickly and the medical guidance was helpful.

My visit with Dr. Wessling was great, however I received an MRI per his suggestion, which I did a couple days later, and I have not heard back from the doctor since. I have been calling and leaving messages, I amnot sure where else to call or how to get in touch. Please give me a call when you receive this message so that I can understand the MRI results and next steps.

I was in good hands. Although removal of stitches were painful it could’ve been worse. Also explained with X-rays how the surgery went and what to expect in the coming weeks. Through careful research I am very happy to have found Dr. Wessling.

Dr. Wessling saw me right away for my follow-up appointment for an ankle sprain, which was a great not having to wait! I didn't feel rushed throughout my appointment and he even took a precautionary on site X-ray of my footto ensure there were no undetected fractures. He paid attention to my issues and answered all questions I asked. He was very professional and knew what he was talking about. Highly recommended!

I felt very confident that Dr Wessling was a good choice after researching for a while. I was very comfortable reviewing my problems and left feeling positive that I will be well taken care. I was unexpectedly surprised that I willmove forward with the surgery. In fact, I already recommended him to a co-worker. This is just the beginning and will update my opinion post-surgery.

Dr. Wessling was one of 4 ankle surgeons (Orthopedic specialists) I sought advice from before deciding to go ahead with an arthroscopy operation on an ankle injury I had been coping with for 2 years. He was an excellent listener andwas decisive in providing me with the best possible surgical options using the latest and most effective treatment techniques (specifically the use of donor bio-cartilage in my joint). The other 3 specialists I saw offered more traditional arthroscopy recommendations without the bio-cartilage option. I highly recommend Dr. Wessling.

I must say I was extremly impressed with his entire team from the moment I called to speak with the office including his front desks staff . I was extremely impressed with how friendly the front desk staff was. I didn'thave to wait for the doctor. I must say Dr Wessling was extreamly professional. I was impress with the doctor and his knowledge of the foot. I was also taken that he did not rush to have me do surgery and that's saying a lot from a surgeon. I would highly recomend this doctor to everyone and anyone :)

I would never recommend any one to visit this OFFICE. I have two appoinments with him . One for my son and one for my mom. He is an orthoped and he has no xray machine in the office. He isnot experienced enough to give you any clinical judjment. He did not even touch my son to examine. For my mom knee replacement followup he did not do the complete exam. As soon as he walked in he said I can not say anything he needs xray. THEY SHOULD NOT BILL US BECAUSE HE COULD NOT DO ANYTHING.

Very nice guy. The issue I had was that Zoc Doc lists him as being able to treat back problems, which is what I saw him for, and that's not his specialty. His specialty is the foot. I was so aggravatedwhen I left because I wasted time and money and got nothing but an X-ray out of it to now take to a Dr. that REALLY specializes in back. I will not be making it via Zoc Doc either. This is the third time in a row that they've screwed me over.
