I had a surgery on my arm for nerve damage with Dr Wisch. After the surgery I had an appointment and told him i still had conditions. He called me a liar because he "fixed it". I now see a different doctor to fix the botched surgery he did on my arm.

Dr. Wisch is an extremely skilled surgeon. He is knowledgeable and easy to see. He performed surgery on my left hand. The scar is barely viable! he is wonderful and I highly recommend him to anyone needing a top notch surgeon

Had arthritis in my left hand thumb. Surgery went well, no issues, Dr. Wisch and PA were clear in explaining what would be done, what the recovery would be like and accessible for questions. The pain was managed very well and full recovery was right in line with his estimate of time to regain full use of the thumb.

TOTALLY missed MRI film ( as did radiologist at CHH).. Had sever pop while training my dog in right index knucle area.. Could not grasp as finger would go off to the side as I tried to grasp.. Looked at MRI the the CHH radiologist missed as well.... I was told by PA bruised bone.. Dr. Wisch said MRI showed nothing.. After FOUR MONTHS went to another hand specialist.. HE IMMEDIATELY saw a 100% rupture of ligament off index knuckle! Went right in for surgery! Almost needed joint replacement!
in Eastbrook, ME |
Dr Wisch is top notch...... I have been his patient for 25years and had multiple surgeries done by him. My confidence and trust in him is such that for my most recent surgery I drove 11hrs as I've moved to Maine from NY. It used to take me 1&1/2 hrs to get there. He is great, explains things thoroughly, cares and loves his work. The only negative is the office staff. I no longer can just leave a message for Dr Wisch! It's a big run around and usually takes several calls to get what I need.
