This provider is excellent, and has consistently provided care of the same caliber to me and to other family members.

I have no problem referring to this physician. but the experience of being a patient at VMC would deter me from referring.

Dr. Doug Weikert has performed 3 hand surgeries on me, and another one is needed on my other hand. I would not go to anyone but him. He is the BEST. I adore him. He is kind, courteous and caring to his patients.

Dr. Weikert and his team are exceptional.
Patient | December 7, 2017

Provider did not listen to me - thinks pain is in my head. Did not listen to my concerns about taking Gabapentin, prescribed physical therapy which another doctor has done and had no success with this injury.
Patient | November 30, 2017

I know how busy Dr. Weikert is and I very much appreciate his office getting me in to see him so quickly!
Patient | October 23, 2017

Dr Weikert is the best I have been seeing him for several years now for my hands and elbows. He is amazing I go in so scared sometimes but the doc just knows how to talk to you in a way that eases your mind. He is an awesome and caring doctor you are very lucky to have him on your staff.

Patient | August 28, 2017

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Dr. Weikert because he's the best but I will DEFINITELY tell any prospective patient to "bring a book," because they WILL be waiting at least an hour and a half.

My 2nd time using him. Will continue as needed.
Patient | February 23, 2017

Had no regard for my concerns. Blew me off to go see other doctors.
Patient | February 23, 2017

Dr. Weikert is a phenomenal physician. He is kind, considerate, patient, understanding- he makes you feel like you are his number one priority. He never rushes the patient-provider interaction, he always listens to my concerns and takes them into consideration when making a collaborative plan. He engages me in the decision-making process, he is warm. I don't enjoy getting hand injections for my arthritis, but he makes the experience pleasant. I would and have recommended him to friends and family needing orthopedic hand care.
Patient | February 20, 2017
