Care Philosophy

Internal medicine specialist Karen Wies, M.D., begins caring for patients by listening. "I spend a long first visit with patients. Once I know their side of the story and what their main concern is, then I can focus on what I need to do."Dr. Wies is a retired colonel in the U.S. Air Force, where she was chief of staff at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, the Air Force's largest hospital. Her goal is a partnership with her patients: "I want my patients to feel positive about their health care, so that they are proactive and involved in their treatment plan."

Big Sandy, TX |
She is friendly and caring. She takes the time to listen to your questions and problems, and then tries to solve them. You do not have to wait long to see her and appointments are easy to make. The staff is courteous and friendly. I trust her decisions and how she handles my problems. Dr Wies answers your questions in a way that you can understand and explain your medical problems clearly.

She doesn't listen much about on the spot problems that may have accured recently.Shceduled to see me 15min to give my concerned looks a more depressed confused person after being prescribed Lyrica.Olny to go to my pharmacist to find that the medicine that was prescribed never came through.Hopefully that's my biggish concern now,getting our moneys worth and accurate treatment.
in Tyler, TX |
Dr. Weis only cares about money and referring her patients to other more qualified specialists. She does not even take the time to listen to your chest with her stethoscope, much less even touch you. I have never been to such a non-caring doctor in my life.
