    How was your appointment with Dr. Wei?

    Feb 25, 2023
    Dr. Wei did robotic surgery for me, removing a malignant carcinoid tumor in my lung. I am recovering well. It was great to have access to his NP’s by phone after I went home. They helped me with problems I had with the pain meds. A great resource! From my first visit with him, he gave me confidence in his ability to help me. I am now cancer free! He listens well, helped me with decisions I had to make and was happy with me at my follow up visit! So thankful to God and Dr. Wei!
