Dr. Wissner is very sharp, knowledgeable to the greatest degree! She shows genuine interest in my conditions, listens well. She gives extra time (if needed). My husband is also her patient and he praises her as well. Her staff is as friendly as she is. She always met my expectation and has been available when we needed her. Like the cleanliness of her office and the location is also convenient for us..

All the doctors are practicing medicine like their in the 1960s. They checked my blood every time I went and when I asked if it's OK it was "oh yes you're fine." they never told me I had diabetes until I complained about one of their staff then they refused to see me any longer with the reason that I had diabetes that I was not taking care of. I was like WHAT? 2 of those doctors should have retired years ago.
