Dr Wangnes is an excellent physician , very caring and competent.
in Millen, GA |
Everyone in the office was so nice. This was my first visit to this ossicle. I felt that they were interested in my well being. Dr. Wangsnes really took time to talk to me and ask questions about my health AND he listened to me and my questions and answered them so that I could understand. He has a sense of humor and didn't make me feel I was just another "number". I appreciate him taking me as a patient. I totally trust his medical knowledge and guidance should I be faced with serious illness.

Dr. Wangsnes took care of my husband when he came in by ambulance suffering from a heart attack. He immediately took him into the cath lab and put two more stents into an artery that was completely blocked. I had no choice but to trust Dr. Wangsnes, but he did an excellent job of taking care of my loved one. I can't thank him enough for his care.

Scheduled an appointment with Dr Wangsness after a friend recommended him. Rescheduled first appt. Then when we finally saw Dr Wangsnes he said the previous cardiologist did not send records to show heart issues. So that was a wasted trip. Third visit I was having blood pressures the night before and his office cancelled appt about 3 hours before and no other Drs in the office could see me. Very disappointed.
