Your trust is our top concern.

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.

Have been seeing Dr. Wilsnack for a couple of years now and have no complaints. He is very caring and answers inquiries over the Northwestern Medicine website. If I could give him 10 stars I would.

The best doctor I have ever had. He is a wonderful person. Dr. Wilsnack has been my doctor for a long time, and I feel so lucky to be his patient. Dr. Wilsnack is compassionate, professional, very knowledgeable, and always available. I am always amazed that he replies to my emails very promptly, sometimes even late at night. I hope to stay with Dr. Wilsnack for a long time, and I am grateful for his excellent care.

Almost alway available on short notice. If he is no available, then you are accommodated with another physical from his office. Jodie his nurse and the rest of the staff is also easy to deal with.

Dr. Wilsnack is a fantastic doctor. I've been seeing him for more than 10 years, and he's caring, extremely responsible, and an all-around good guy. I'm a bit of a complicated patient, and he's been there for me for many years. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a primary care physician.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Wilsnack and was very impressed with the entire experience. He listened well, asked good questions, and had a very pleasant demeanor. The turnaround time on my blood test results was very quick, and Dr. W communicated promptly in email (using the mychart platform). I had a follow-up appointment which was easy to schedule and again the follow-ups were quite fast. I highly recommend.

Dr Wilsnack provides a feeling of being in the right hands for your medical care. I feel confident he will order the right tests and refer me to the right specialists as needed. Dr. Wilsnack LISTENS to his patients and leaves you with the knowledge that he cares about your total health. He actually reads test results ordered by other doctors. Highly recommended on all counts.
