Interests

Dr. Wieder is a Boulder native, and he began his interest in medicine at an early age. When he was about twelve years old, he crushed his finger in a climbing accident and visited with an orthopedist who encouraged his interest by chatting with him about medicine. The orthopedist even offered to let the future Dr. Wieder go on rounds with him!

Dr. Wieder and his wife live in Sunshine Canyon in Boulder with their two children. He is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys backpacking, fly fishing, skiing, and cycling in the Colorado outdoors.

“A friendly lady at the check-in counter. All staff members were friendly. The doctor gave me exercises to work on my sore shoulder. Had x-rays done on both my knee and my shoulder? He wants me to be sure and call him on Monday to see how the pain in my knee is doing. Explained everything to me while looking at the x-rays.”
