I've been going to her for years and I love the fact that she is always very thorough. She is friendly and upbeat. She automatically has me set up another appointment. She works fast, but never misses anything.

"I was a patient of Dr Karen Wetherall for 15 years I was with her every step of the way when the practice changed hands multiple times. She has lost every ounce of compassion and has turned into a doctor I never ever want to see again. She appears to be in it for the money now and NOT PATIENT CARE! She totally dismissed me in a time of crisis, and couldn’t of cared less about what I was going through in the middle of a PANDEMIC!. Dr Young or NP John Hammonds are two of the best people to see from this group. In addition her Medical Assistants are so incredibly incompetent and extremely rude and obnoxious ! She’s a pretentious doctor now and I’m sure she cares less she lost a patient but I gained another amazing doctor. Stay clear of this woman who pretends every step of the way ."

I am so Glad Dr. Wetherell was recommended to me and I have her for my Doctor. I have been seeing her for almost 10 years now and I could not have found anyone better for a Primary Care Doctor. She is Top of the Line in my book. She is very knowledgeable, personable, very detail oriented and explains everything well, treats you like family . She keeps on top of everything. Best Primary Care Dr. I have ever had!!

she is very rude and her MA acts if she is the doctor . i gave her many chances to prove herself, every time gets worse. she would leave the room in the middle of the appointment to talk to other people and laugh , then when she comes back , she does not even apologize. I am looking for a new PCP.

I have gone to Dr. Wetherell for a number of years and I feel that she and her staff take care of me as if I were family. Dr. Wetherell has consistently been spot-on with her diagnosis. When referring me to another specialist, her recommendations have always been good. I have complete trust and good communication with Dr. Wetherell as my "primary-care" doctor and recommend her 100%.
