Dr. Wiederkehr is the kind of doctor all doctors should be! He literally saved my from dialysis when he took the time to figure out in was a particular med destroying my kidney function. He's also solved other related health challenges that other doctors have ignored. On time; always prompt at answering any messages; takes all the time needed during appointments to answer your questions; insists on you being part of the treatment decision making; great personality; and very caring. I give him an A+. I happen to see him in the Plano office, which has a pleasant staff and atmosphere as well.
