Dr. Wieduwilt took the time to explain my very complicated disease to me. I know that he saved my life and did so by fighting for me. He even went up against my insurance company to ensure that I got the treatment that I needed. I am now in remission and I know that he saved my life. Thank you Dr. Wieduwilt. I wouldn't hesitate to send any one that I love to him. He is the best at what he does.

Zero rating - Beware the number of undisclosed deaths attributed to Dr. Matthew Wieduwilt, attributed to inadequate warning, lack of tailored care, medical errors, insufficient due diligence, and dangerously obsolete treatment procedures.
