Specialties

Dr. Nathan Wei has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Terrible experience!

I would have given his office a zero if possible! They are misleading and some would say deceitful! I was told I was given a gift of health and would not have to pay anything. So did that not happen but I was charged over $315, never told that my insurance was not accepted, he did nothing to help me, tried to take me off medications that do help me and then when I came to the conclusion that I did not want to be sent to collections over it I was told that they do not accept payment plans. Who has ever heard of anything like this before. If this is how he runs his practice, how does he have any patients but foremost, how does he still have a license! I have been to a lot of doctors and have had plenty of bad experiences but this ranks right up there in the top 5. So if you do not want to be duped out of your hard earned money, stay away from this office!

WONDERFUL Doctor!

Dr. Wei is very attentive to everything I tell him that is going on. He took every symptom and worked at finding a diagnosis like a detective, confirming his diagnosis through thorough testing. The entire staff is extremely inviting & friendly. I was able to find relief from years of growing problems & pain through his diagnosis & treatment plan. I highly recommend Dr. Wei.

Dr. Wei was Sent by God! On the ball!

After being misdiagnosed for over two years by at least half a dozen medical professionals, Dr. Wei interviewed me for about a minute and a half and diagnosed my problem: rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Wei is the most caring and able medical professional I have ever encountered. I just cannot believe this doctor who pays attention to me, knows exactly what to do for me and even calls me at home to see how I am and if I need anything from him. (He is nice, too.) The staff is excellent as well and they always call me back. Always. Incomparable medical care! Worth any price! Do see Dr. Wei and do what he says! You won't regret it.

Wonderful care

I found out I needed a total knee replacement done. My medical issues made me a poor surgical risk. Knew about stem cells and found Dr Wei. I hobbled in with no cartilage in my right knee excruciating pain as well as a boatload of medications . Dr Wei and his staff took as much time with me as I needed, was never rushed. They worked with my cardiologist to ensure a safe procedure. Dr.Wei called me post procedure (over a weekend ) to check on my progress. Now 8 weeks post procedure I am walking without a cane, off all pain meds and finished physical therapy! I can not say enough good things about this physician and his staff.
