Ratings for Dr. Peter John Weigel
WORST DOCTOR TO SEE!!! Don't even bother making him a primary doctor. I made the first appointment of the day (8:15am) even got there 5 minutes early. Went in and spoke to him for a whole 30 seconds before he got a call on his cell phone asking me to be excused. I can understand excusing him but after leaving me there for 35 mins I told the receptionist to refund my money I'm leaving. I HAVE A JOB TO you know! So after calling the office a couple of times the receptionist would tell me each time he's with a patient! Ok so what was I at 8:15am when I was there!!??? I explained how rude he was to not at least send a receptionist in the room to tell me if perhaps it was an emergency call, tell you give him another 5 mins. THEY DID NOTHING!!! So NOW I have to reschedule my visit... clearly NOT WITH MR. PETER! Basically my appointment meant nothing, my co-pay, means nothing to him! This reminded me why I switched doctors from a couple of years ago but decided because its next door to my home that I would be able to continue on my way to work having a doctor next door and that will see me s early at 8:15! oh yeah and its been over a few hours and two calls and he still haven't called me YET!
I only saw Dr. Weigel once. He seemed very competent and friendly. I was more than happy him. His staff on the other hand left much to be desired. I had to call 5 times for test results. You have to leave a message and someone is supposed to call you back. My first message wasn't returned. My second was, but the doctor hadn't reviewed my results so all the nurse could tell me was I had to call back again in a day or two. Called back and left message #1. No reply. Message #4, no reply. By now its been over 2 weeks since my test results were supposed to be ready. Instead of leaving a 5th message I decided to call the front desk. Told the nurse the difficulty I was having and she simply read me my test results with little explanation of what they meant. Even though I liked Dr. Weigel, I will not be going back.
I really like Dr Weigal. I swithed to him after my Dr retired, he was 65. New Drs arent like the old school ones...Dr Weigal measures up. He listens to what I have to say, and takes his time. Todays physicals, arent like the old ones, so I like to ask questions. The one thing that I dont like, is waiting up to 45 minutes for him to come in the room. The staff once forgot about me, I waited for over an hour and I was freezing from ac, and didnt feel well. Since he takes his time talking to a patient, that is why there is a wait. My husband and I are very happy with him
Dr. Weigel is a very pleasant doctor that takes the time to answer your questions or explain health matters in terms that you can understand. My only critisism is that he is not very punctual. Although you are called into an examining room within 15 minutes of your appointment, it is the norm, rather than the exception, that you will wait in the examination room for 45 minutes or more before seeing the doctor. This has occurred on most visits including those where I was scheduled as the first appointment of the day.
