Cranston, RI |
My experience waa probably 2 Years ago and only because the receptionist was absolutely awful, unhelpful and unnessicarily rude. All of my jobs have required some type of customer service I can't imagine ever treating some the way I was treated. Also I was like 18-19 at the time and the Dr was very helpful! Thinking back on this I really hope they have a new receptionist because my experience with her was traumatic and discouraging.

Do yourself a favor, find another provider. Dr. Wishik is a caring thorough doctor but his "receptionist" is caustic and derogatory. Taming of the Shrew comes to mind. I heard her on the phone, during a visit, with whom I assume was a patient and thought " she has a job because the good doctor can't fire his wife." The services provided are not that specialized where she can treat people as she does. Myself included. I'm surprised the practice can stay afloat. This girl is all set! Good luck

Terrible experience. The receptionist who so happens to be his wife is mean and unpleasant. After being a patient for over 2 yrs I decided to leave after being denied service over a billing dispute that I was unaware of until showing up for my appointment. While on the phone with my insurance company, the receptionist requested I leave because I was cutting into their lunch break. Dr. Wishik is fine, their PA is nice but the receptionist is awful. Note I had no problem w/ their random drug test

Dr. Wishik has seen my husband for over 20 years. He has always been kind and compassionate. We would highly recommend him!
He has been a huge help for my daughter who is an adult, and has battled ADD since she was in first grade. He tested her, reviewed medication she was on, adding something to help her adjust through her whole work day which is a long tedious one.

Horrible office. Mean staff, lack of trust. In it for the money. Very shade place.

I've been seeing Dr. Wishik for several years now. He is low-key yet caring, personable and professional and stays up to date on the latest ADHD research. He has some neg. reviews...what you should know is that his practice did unexpected (required) drug testing to his patients' recent visits. I don't do illegal drugs like coke, etc. but patients who do tested positive. He said it was surprising how many people failed the drug test. Now you have a better idea why the the neg. reviews.

My daughter was 8 minutes late after driving from Orono, ME in a thunder storm and the woman at the front desk was not only rude, un professional, condescending , she made her wait an hour to see the doctor and repremanded my 21 year old for being late. She was rude to me as well. I understand that she is the doctors wife, therefore I guess she can treat people with issues and problems comming to see her husband (the professional) how ever she feels like. She will not be going back.

Dr. Wishik is wonderful. Very personable, takes his time, and kind. Jane, the front desk and practice manager, is horrific. Incredibly rude, condesending and miserable. She is the reason I will not be returning. In the waiting room, others had said the same. It is unfortunate he will loose so many patients due to Jane being so very miserable and unprofessional.

Dr Wishik was very thorough and explained his diagnosis and plan of treatment. I was able to ask many questions and was extremely satisfied .
