What People Say About Dr. Sherman Wiggins, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Office nurse/assistant is very incompetent. I had a visit and discussed a procedure in detail with Dr Wiggins at which time we agreed on a date (earliest appt was a month later) and apparently his nurse failed to document this. I called repeatedly for information and found out the day before that she had not scheduled it and I would have to wait another 7 weeks. She apologized but that did not help the situation because that means after waiting for my initial appointment I have a wait time of 11 weeks to get the care I need. Very disappointed. I have never witnessed such incompetence in all the years I have been treated by other physicians in this group.

I've seen Dr. Wiggins for eight years. He performed a cardiac ablation on me and I see him for annual appointments. He listens to his patients instead of rushing through the appointment with a "Dr. knows best" attitude. He's got good instincts on managed care. The only downside, one I don't mind putting up with, is his appointments usually run a bit late. That's just not a problem with me because sometimes a patient needs a bit extra time. I just bring a book with me. Excellent care!

Came in for an appointment as a new patient, after an hour and half wait. Saw the man for 3 minutes and he blamed me and ask me "what was I going to do?".He didn't care about seeing me,only about his meeting.He was blameful and very rude. I even brought him all of my records and he never took the chance to read them. Walk out with nothing. I've never felt to stupid and helpless in my life.Came to him for help and he told me I was doing anything for myself. Left in tears and I will NEVER go back
