What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Wiesner, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Wiesner has been my rheumatologist for forty-one yrs. He’s been the most wonderful doctor I’ve ever had! His dedication to his patients is beyond compare. He listens, asks good questions, answers all my questions, does thorough joint exams every visit and provides excellent solutions and treatment in the most complex situations. He cares deeply about how chronic illness, in my case RA, affects life decisions and goals, my family life, as well as my psychological/social functioning. He has guided me with kindness, gentleness, firmness when needed, and compassion wanting only the best for me. I’m indebted to him for his dedication and wisdom through the decades he has treated me. He is a seasoned, wise physician of the highest integrity and his commitment to the art of practicing medicine is has made all the difference in my life.

All I can say is that Dr. Kenneth Wiesner was the BEST Rheumatologist I ever had and had not found one that could compare. I have gotten worst over the years and not that young person I was back then. So praying he welcomes me back. He saved me life back in 2002. What I can remember I will never forget. It was just a few days after my Mom had passed and it seemed as if my body was just shutting down. The last thing I remember was calling my girlfriend telling her please come over. The next thing I remember was waking up two weeks later which was in Sutter hospital in Sacramento for two weeks that I was in the hospital I didn't know that my children has been coming daily to visit me. When I woke up two weeks later and the nurse came in she said WELCOME BACK. We didn't know if you were going to make it. I remember NOTHING those two weeks and still don't. If it wasn't for Dr. Wiesner I would not be here today. Patty

Dr. Wiesner is a fantastic doctor who is extremely thorough, listens well, and genuinely cares. His office staff is very helpful. They tell you up front his wait times are long because he doesn’t cut off appointment times with patients. He does indeed spend as much time as you need. I waited over an hour both times, but knowing this ahead of time made it okay. I don’t doubt my care is in good hands.

Dr. was thorough and knowledgeable. The biggest challenge with this office is getting follow up calls or info for prescriptions and tests. The office phone line is staffed from 9-3 and is difficult to get through on. Additionally, you can't leave messages when they don't answer. In my experience promised follow up and return calls from the staff was either slow or did not happen.

This Dr is absolutely amazing! He has been a lifesaver for my condition and takes his time to pinpoint your problems. He is a very great rheumatologist and I recommend him to anyone in the area! Do not listen to the negative feedback, yes, you may have a wait as this is not a hospital and he does take time to get to know his patients also! Thank you Dr. Wiesner

Doctor is awesome. Office girls have a horrible attitude with no respect for patient care or privacy.
