I see on the website that Dr. Wernli is listed in Chilton, WI. That is correct but she is also practicing in Manitowoc, WI, just for the record. As for a review, she is a great dermatologist. Very thorough, and diagnosed my condition first thing, after I had seen 4 previous doctors who were not as knowledgable as she, and who put me on meds that were not correct for my problem. She cares about her patients, and getting it right. Highly recommend her as a doctor who knows her stuff.
in Madison, WI |
I cant say enough about Dr. Wernli. She is the most caring and respectful doctor I have ever seen. She is thorough, intelligent, and sensitive. She truly cares about the welfare of her patients and goes above and beyond. I have seen her for skin problems such as rashes and growths, skin checks, and also cosmetic procedures, such as botox and fillers. In the later regard, she is an artist, and never goes overboard, but gives just the right amount of product where needed. 5 plus stars!

I have been a patient of Dr. Betsy Wernli for the past 5 years. She is very thorough and loves to get to know me as a person not just as her patient. I feel very important to her each time I visit and look forward to seeing her.

She is top in her field as far as myself and family are concerned. We have recommended her to several others and they all are glad they picked her. She is real people, with a warm friendly personality. She is highly professional but shows a sincere, true caring that you feel instantly. She ALWAYS walks into the room with a smile and cheery greeting that instantly makes you feel comfortable as a person and not just another number in the system. While with her, you have her full attention.
