I have seen Dr Wiedrich over the last several years for a few hand and lower arm issues. He is absolutely, not only very professional, competent and intelligent, but also able to relate to the physical and emotional issues the come with these concerns in a practical, caring and down to earth manner. He thinks. He sees the whole person.
