Our 2 little girls have both seen Dr. Wikholm several times for ear infections & our oldest daughter at 8 years old got her adenoids & tonsils removed. He is very professional & easy to talk to!

I called to make an appointment as a new patient and the receptionist was rude and condescending. I hung up and moved on to another Dr.
