Do not go. Find another physician. He can't even refill your medications in a timely manner. It took 2 weeks for him to finally get my medications refilled after I called several times. This is not a one time occurrence. This has happened several times already. He works one day a week so he can't provide appropriate patient care. Find someone else if you want better care and prompt medical attention.

I highly recommend Dr. Wetherhold, when I saw him on my first visit, I could tell , he had thoroughly read my medical history. He was caring , very sure of himself and listened and answered all my questions. I have seen many Doctors in my lifetime, and I can attest that Dr. Wetherhold is highly qualified professional and he is exactly the doctor that I want to care for my health.
