my child had a cornea transplant with Dr. Weikert. He lied to us about being a pedatric specialist and bed side manor was rude and very short. the transplant is going to fail and he said just do it again at around 20,000 dollars. At our last post- op visit, waited 3hrs and he got mad at a child, the patient and threw instruments. very unhappy and disappointed at how unprofessional this quack of a "doctor" is. GOOD LUCK, U will need it.
my nephew has a procedure with this dr,but he never talk us anything about the surgery only 10 minutes before,they have weeks to explain before but that never happen,after the surgery is not what we expecting only bad results,now my nephew 3 years old has a prescription from the dr to wear contact lenses but at the first appointmentn he get so scared and we now he is to little and never gonna let us put those lenses.The point is the Dr never say anything about this before the surgery and this in malapractice and negligence
