If I could leave 0 stars I would. I am a new patient to the practice. I was scheduled to see Dr. Wigand. The front desk staff was extremely rude and unhelpful. I was never able to see the physician, as the front desk refused to honor my appointment because I would not provide them with my full social security number. I did provide the last four numbers, my license and insurance cards for identity/billing verification. That was not good enough “for their system”. They were unwilling to provide any other solutions or accept my solution to enter all zero’s and the last four digits of my social. Most computer systems (even the old ones) recognize zero as a number. Awful patient care! I DO NOT recommend this office.
