Dr. Wetzel talked with me over the phone before I was even a patient. He answered all of my questions regarding a particular procedure I was interested in and gave me clear answers and recommendations and explained why he prefers one procedure above another. He got me in quickly for my appointment and I was in the OR within 5 days. He was very professional and listened to my concerns and I was extremely satisfied with my experience and outcome.

My only complaint about is the paper gowns. It adds to the already awkward situation. But Dr. Wetzel is absolutely amazing. He explains medical issues without putting patients down or making them feel inferior. He not only found a way to tell me that I needed to lose a few pounds without making me feel like a hormonal whale, but also told me a great way to do so. As for the medical condition that I seeked care for, he was able to develop a plan that actually worked!!

Dr. Wetzel refused my epidural while I was in hard labor because I didn't want to take Pitocin, but he never informed ME he was going to do that until I was told by the nurse while in hard labor & had to have my baby naturally with a whole lot of pain. His staff had urine samples unlabeled & all just sitting together when I was told to just put mine with the rest of them. I was told I had an STD from these urine samples in front of my husband who was told he had none.
