Provider Reviews

Both my wife and I have been extremely pleased as patients of Dr. Wenner's clinic and his staff. They take the time to thoroughly understand our health history, everyone is very responsive, and the care excellent. They are a treasure to have access to in our small community.

Review for Dr. Wenner

Had an urgent matter, was able to get in the same day, had a thorough review as I was also changing primaries (CentraCare could not keep a local physician).

Review for Dr. McIver

This man spent more time telling me how fat I was than he did addressing my actual complaint. DO NOT GO TO HIM.
