15/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Weitemeyer definitely chose the right path when he became a surgeon. He is intelligent and gifted at his craft. He performed surgery on my daughter to remove a perforated appendix. She has healed well and his care and attention to her after surgery was wonderful. We are blessed to have such care in New Westminster.  Respond

07/02/12 5 5 5 5 Great Surgeon! Saved my life; no one budged when I entered the hospital twice and a walk-in clinic with a pain I had in my abdomen, turned out to be appendicitis on a malrotated intestine. Dr. Weitemeyer explained everything to me was very caring and polite. Highly recommended! Thank you  Respond

02/02/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. W is caring, very smart, gentle, and funny, which helped put me at ease. He also listens, and doesn't rush--most important these days when most docs are counting the minutes. He immediately knew what was wrong, though others hadn't been able to find the source of my discomfort 'cos they'd been looking for kidney stones. Apparently one can have painful attacks and nausea, even without a gallbladder, caused by new gallstones or sludge in the common bile duct. He quickly scheduled a procedure to fix this, and I know it will be okay 'cos he's the one who took my gallbladder out many years ago without any problems. I wish he were my regular GP.  Respond

27/05/08 5 5 5 5 I will never forget Dr. Weitemeyer. Although it was quite a few years ago, he performed emergency surgery on me and although I was in ICU for a bit, all went well. He did not hesitate to answer my questions and explain things to me. This man is a gifted physician - no ego, very caring and an extremely knowledgeable surgeon.  Respond

18/03/08 5 5 5 5 I had an infection for almost 2 years and was in a great deal of pain. I went to see numerous specialist that only made things worse, including one surgury, I actually became septic. This doctor knew right away where the infection was coming from and had to do 2 surgeries but i'm as good as new and he made this process very comfortable for me and followed up with me every day while I was in the hospital and also afterwards. His receptionist is the best as well a very careing team!!!! I could never thank them both enough!  Respond

05/04/07 5 5 5 If this is the surgeon at RCH, he saved my life. I had cancer and the idiot surgeon (Dr L??) I was seeing had me on a wait list even though I was in a great deal of pain. Dr Weitemeyer was the ONLY surgeon in RCH willing to risk of hurting his "friends" feelings. Thank-you Dr W for remembering why you went into medicine. You will never be forgotten.  Respond
