I absolutely love this office. Front desk is always friendly, Nurses are fantastic, and Dr. Whickersham couldn't be more caring. They generally get you in for an appointment very quickly. As a combat veteran who served 23 years , deployed to 2 combat zones, and who incurred numerous service connected disability, I've never had better or more personal care from a healthcare team as I have had in Dr. Whickersham’s Office. He is so easy to talk to. Quite simply he is the best in the field. He also specializes in both Rheumatology and Internal Medicine so he has a wealth of knowledge. I have been his patient for over 12 years. He also has authored a well written and helpful book available on Amazon that I purchased and go back to it often.

Dr. Wickersham is an excellent Doctor. He is kind and caring and has helped me with all my medical needs. He diagnosed me with connect tissue disease and fibromyalgia. He helps manage my pain, which is sometimes extensive. I don’t know what I would do without Doctor Wickersham’s medical expertise. I am very glad and grateful to have him as my doctor.

This doc is so compassionate, caring and also flexible. He considers things, thinks outside the box and even orders tests I really think I need. His nurse Cindy always gets back to me and is so kind. I drive an hour to see him each time and it's worth it.

Dr. Wickersham diagnosed me with fibromyalgia in approximately 2007 after several other Dr.'s told me I was just getting old. I was only 45 at the time. Dr. Wickersham takes the time to listen to all of your needs and concerns. Dr. Wickersham has since diagnosed me we with things such as Lupus and CFS. Dr. Wickersham is beyond caring and understanding but most of all he is extremely knowledgeable in his work. He is very thorough. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He also treats my parents.

This doctor was recommended by another doctor. I’m wondering if the doctor is aware that the office never returns phone calls after 24 hours. Plus I had to call back to be told there are no appts. Until March of 2019! No thank you

Since 2007/2008 he has been my physician. Always a listener, empathetic and kind, but there's something about Dr. W. that's different from every other doctor I have ever been a patient to, I believe he Believes not just in science but in Almighty God.. So refreshing .. I believe this is why he is so knowledgeable so capable, he is in fact instructed by God who speaks to him mentally and thru the works of his hands. This world is a better place because of Dr. Wickersham and I am a better Me.

The best doctor I have had for my particular illness. He listens to every concern I have and answers all my questions. He has been the key to understanding my disease. I drive 2.5 hours to see him and will continue to do so. I recommend him to anyone that needs a Rheumatologist.

I have been a patient of Dr Wickersham since he began his practice in San Antonio over 15 years ago. He is a wonderful Doc. He really cares about his patients unlike some doctors who see you once and never again no matter what is going on with you. You just see assistant after first visit. I'm not just a patient but an RN BSN MSN with almost 40 years of practice. I drive 60 miles past other reumatolgiest. I recommend him to everyone. His staff is mostly good too. Thanks. Cindi J.

I have been seeing Dr. Wickersham for 10 years now. This doctor is incomparable and one of the most empathetic doctors I have ever met. He is well versed in all things regarding internal medicine and rheumatology. When 2 other doctors could not explain to me what my health condition was I landed in his office praying and begging for answers. I had barely turned 18 and was miserable and confused. He went to work trying to find answers immediately and figured everything out. He is AMAZING people!!
