Dr Wagers took very good care of my husband at Frazier rehab Institute after he was admitted there after having a stroke back in 2018. He was there for a couple weeks. We've been back to her for follow ups and she treats us with respect and listens to all our concerns. I personally think she's a wonderful doctor.

I visited Dr. Wagers today to review a long-term pain issue in my shoulder and head. She led a team of doctors-in-training and was excellent. She was friendly, asked a lot questions and was able to get to the heart of the matter quickly. I especially liked that Dr. Wagers and her team approached my situation holistically, exploring and explaining a range of options while leaving the final call to me.

Only one visit about a year ago after a traumatic brain injury. During that visit she asked questions but refused to listen to what I had to say. She would only listen to what my parent had to say, even though he had never experienced an injury similar to mine. She has zero bedside manner, she is extremely rude, she is inconsiderate, and her policy with me was that she saw me once and never had check ups to see how I was progressing. In fact the only time was 8 months later for a Cognitive Function Test. I passed said test. Then she refused to see me until July. 1 year and 1 month after my initial injury. All I needed was a note to clear me back to work. I could have gotten that so many months earlier but it would seem she believes it takes the exact same amount of time for a patient to heal, far longer then I needed. In all honesty if you get assigned her as a case manger do your best to get reassigned, I can only hope Frazier has more qualified doctors.

I would not recommend her as a doctor to anyone I know. She does not listen to family or make them feel apart of the patients team. She went against wishes and challenged/argued with me over simple requests. Worst doctor experience I have ever had. She also said things that were happening well with my loved one, in which we’re not accurate. (As if he was doing very well, but was not after speaking with other nursing care). She saw my loved one less than 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

Dr. Wagers is extremely rude and a terrible doctor. She treated a family member and did not know what she was doing I would not recommend an animal to her.
