Dr. Wiegand's Care Philosophy
I take a multi-disciplinary approach to all my patients' problems. Pills may take the edge off of severe symptoms, but often are not the only answer to relieving a person's suffering. I strive to sit with my patients and listen, as well as I can, to their life story, free from judgement or prejudice. Together we can find a pathway from suffering to recovery.
