Five star surgeon

Dr. Wetzel was an amazing surgeon and doctor. From day 1,when I met Dr. Wetzel, he spent as much time with me as needed. He was extremely thorough and very reassuring that he could help me. As it turned out, I needed an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion from C4-C7. As you can imagine I was nervous and apprehensive but the staff at Temple were all great and professional, especially Dr. Wetzel. He explained the entire procedure, answered every question I had and put my mind at ease. I would absolutely, 100% recommend Dr. Wetzel to my family, friends or anyone that is suffering from neck and back pain. I'm at the 12 week mark after my surgery and I am glad that I went through with it.
