She is a very thorough and knowledgeable doctor. She explained my diagnosis and treatment plan very clearly and spent almost an hour with me; was never rushed or in a hurry and wanted to make sure I understood the information she gave me. I highly recommend her for anyone in need of a lung specialist. She's great!

Dr Wesenberg impressed me as an outstanding physician, not for her knowledge base, as I would expect that as a Pulmonologist. Her outstanding quality is based on her taking the time to listen. Then she is incredibly thorough in her evaluation. she includes all the current testing modalities. She is most kind, and sincere in her approach to improve my quality of life as well as teaching me self care. Karen Wesenberg is everyones dream doc. and I am grateful for her. Betty Pires
