I am a new patient with deep concerns about my back, knees and neck pain. Dr. Wiesel seemed hurried and didn’t give me a chance to explain my issues. The appointment took less than five minutes and I was hoping thisesteemed doctor would have been more thorough. He prescribed me Aleve, which if he had listened, I could have told him doesn’t work for my problems. Additionally, he and his office did not/could not/would not request X-Ray images from my previous hospital. I now have to go to the hospital during work hours and waste my time to obtain my medical images when a simple office request could have saved me the time, trouble and pain. I had high hopes for Dr. Wiesel, but he seems like a very busy and my wellness seemed extremely insignificant to the rest of his schedule. I hope he takes more time getting to understand his other patients.

Wait times: Fairly standard for a large office. I had to wait about 25 minutes to see him, then wait several more times in between nurse checkup, xray, etc. In total I spent about 45 minutes waiting and ~15 minutes actuallywith the medical staff. Bedside manner: Fantastic, personable, friendly Overall satisfaction: I went in for back issues and he barely looked at my back. I am not a doctor, but I feel as if he would understand more about my issue if he took the time to make me go through motions and look at my muscles. He asked 3 basic questions, ordered an xray, and wrote me up a prescription. I will be visiting again in 2 weeks, and I hope to have a more in-depth discussion of my symptoms with him.

I booked an appointment and was there is only a few days. It was short and sweat. No hassle and he did everything I could have asked for or more.

Dr. Wiesel is great. He clearly comes across as knowledgeable and that he knows what he is doing. My only feedback is the session feels rushed and patients feel like a "number" that needs to be checked off the list.

A very genial doctor who actually took the time to give me the first sensible explanation I've ever heard for why I experience the kind of pain I have at the times when it always occurs. Two previous orthopedic surgeons didn'tdo that. That alone got him high marks in my book.
