We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.

Dr. Wigand has been my doctor for 40 years. He is excellent. Very detailed. He does not play around though when he tells you to do something he means for you to do it. He has guided me through the diabetes rollercoaster with my having few diabetic related complications.
