Dr. Wecht is a true and very knowledgeable professional. This was not my first visit to his office. I'd seen him before for other neurological issues. But always, he addressed them with the utmost concern, professionalism, competency, and desire to help. UPMC's hiring physicians like him is why I stay with UPMC. Thank you for having him onboard.
