Dr Wettstein is a truly wonderful doctor. His specialty is Endocrinology, caring for people with disorders like diabetes and thyroid problems. I see him for adrenal failure, and I have been so pleased with the quality of care I have been receiving from him for the past 6 months or so. Dr Wettstein is caring, compassionate and intelligent. He listens to me, hears me, and works with me to address any problems, questions or concerns. I highly recommend him to anyone needing this specialty care.

I'm a woman who was diagnosed with Hashimoto's at age 8. While my levels continued to prove fine., I (a health nut vegan with an addiction to exercise) kept gaining weight. He couldn't explain it so when I moved I did some of my own research. Turns out I'm on a T4 that's supposed to convert to a T3. I should mention (and I told him this) I have to take a pill JUST to metabolize the current medication I'm on. What was needed a pure, T3 medication. Find someone with a more current education.

Dr. Wettstein was contacted by my PCP and an MRI determined I had a prolactinoma on my pituitary gland. We couldn't get an appointment for over a month but when we went to meet with his nurse practitioner Dr. Wettstein was there instead. He immediately took time to address our concerns and questions and put us at ease! He spent about 1 1/2 hours with us and came up with a plan of action to shrink the tumor, fix my immediate hydration problems and get my T4 back up. Highly recommended!
