Everything was very good. One of the main reasons I left my old doctor and came to you. I'm very happy thank you.

Dr Wesenberg has helped me so much. I have nothing negative to say.

This provider was very curt and short with me. She didn't seem to understand that recalling timelines of when I experienced trouble breathing which has come on slowly over time and not on a specific date. She seemed to get irritated with me when I was trying to explain. She left the room for almost 15 minutes to find a test result that she said she could only find on her office computer which I have never experienced before. She came back and said she couldn't find it. The staff told me that she wanted to see me in 3 months but said they weren't able to schedule that far out. I've never heard something like that in any doctor's office before. Usually you can schedule way off in the future. I got the feeling that she never wanted to seem me again. I'm still waiting for her to get back to me the test result she was looking for. I will be looking for another pulmonologist.

This was an annual appointment for routine check up scheduled by the doctor's office. They always make sure the appointment is scheduled to meet my needs.

I've seen Dr Wesenberg for 10+ years and I wish she was a primary care physician so I could see her for all my health care needs. She is a wonderful doctor who listens well and explains things thoroughly and clearly.
