First saw Dr. Wakelin during an ER visit. he was the one who finally diagnosed my 6 week illness as UC. He has always been concerned about how I'm doing and encouraged me to do the proper things with self-care and diet to make living with this chronic illness as tolerable as it can be.

Zero time for discussing the main reason for the visit; he didn't ask why I was there. Bedside mannerism was not what I look for in a doctor. Information presented to me was very blurry and skeptical regarding accuracy. Call back from assistant with results was less than desirable....she didn't know what she was calling about and told me to "google it in". I won't be returning to this doctor.
