Ratings for Dr. Louis Weisleder
Mistakes in my report. I visited Dr. Weisleder for my knee pain. He was 3 hours and 40 minutes late. He didn't apologize, he just said he was in surgery. (But aren't you always in surgery?) I thought he has a 4-star rating, he must be worth waiting for. In the end, he was not helpful. I switched GP this year and got all my old records back. I read his report from 2 years ago. There are many mistakes and misunderstandings. Firstly, my name was in wrong orders. The information about my previous medical history is mostly wrong. I told him I have tried injection with another doctor, it didn't help. The purpose of my visit was to seek alternative solutions. But in the report, he says that I was offered injection by the other doctor but reluctant to proceed. It is impossible for him to forget I have tried injection, because he scolded me for not trusting the other orthopedic surgeon. He said to me in such a snotty tone, "You know how many years of experience he had? It's unlikely he would make mistakes." I then said, it didn't matter because I was in MORE pain after the injection. I could not walk properly for 2 weeks. He end up giving me a n expensive topical cream that was not helpful at all.
The doctor himself is a good physician, very knowledgeable in what he does. He may be a tad overzealous in his desire to operate when there could be other alternatives that he won't explore. This could pose potential problems for those who wish to avoid surgery at all cost. The biggest drawback for this physician, however, is his secretary. This woman does him a great disservice. She is loathe to return calls, has a surely temperament and can not relate to patients' concerns and fears. She lacks empathy and understanding, two qualities that most secretaries have. A brief look at most of these reviews will attest to these facts. She NEVER answers the phone, therefore patients MUST leave a message. She instructs patients to call only once and leave only one message. It has been my experience to NOT receive a return call in a months time which necessitates my leaving ANOTHER message which she has clearly forbidden, only to still NOT receive a call back. This nonsense went on for 3 months, all the while my pain was getting worse and worse. This is NOT the way to treat your patients. The secretary is the front line representative of his business. If he doesn't care about how his patients are being treated by his staff then what does that say about him? I would think wisely before choosing this physician.
Dr. Weisleder repaired my shoulder in Jan.2017. It took me 5 years for someone to believe my symptoms, and Dr. Weisleder is one of the first to take my symptoms into considerations, rather than just an MRI. My MRI showed minimal swelling and that everything was ok with my shoulder. Yet, after surgery, Dr. Weisleder showed me his full report and said they had to do considerable work and that the swelling was severe. He has always been patient, kind, and answered all of my questions. I tell everyone what a wonderful job he did. Thank you Dr. Weisleder.

Dr Weisleder is very knowledgable, for sure. However, he is pretty quick in his assessments... I had twisted my knee a couple of times, including one bad slip on ice, but because of my age, it's arthritis, a diagnosis not to be confused with any facts. It's unfortunate, as he did arthroscopic surgery on my other knee a few years earlier and the knee has been fantastic since. So, a great surgeon, but not a thorough analysis/diagnosis. We don't need to go into the mess that is the clinic where he sees you... count on being at least 90 minutes to two hours after your scheduled time.
