Appreciate I was informed their day was busy and I may have to wait to be seen. Since I had arrived very early for my appointment, this was helpful to me. It did not seem when I got Into the exam room I had to wait very long. However I do appreciate being told I may have had a longer wait time since if I had something else to do that day, I would have been able to adjust my schedule. Thank you for asking about my husband's health, who is also a patient of this office.

The Dr. Answered questions and gave easy to understand instructions I felt that I could rely on her for my health care.

This was a first visit to discuss results of tests and scans ordered by my primary doctor. I was very pleased with my visit, the doctor was very professional while at the same time personal in explaining my results and I felt that she was interested in making sure all my questions and concerns were answered fully without my feeling rushed or hurried. I would definitely recommend her to others based on my observations from this first time visit.

Dr. Wesenberg was great and so thorough! The clerk was in training and did quite well!! The Pulmonary Function test people have not returned my two phone calls over the past week and a half. Pretty disappointing but Dr. Wesenberg and staff apologized on their behalf. They obviously need help!
