I have been through diffrent doctors & work in a hospital & see a lot if doctors & know what good bed side looks like. She really is very knowledgeable in what she does. She sat down w/ me & was very thorough w/ her evaluations. She never made me feel rushed (which I have experienced w/ alot of dr for myself & also see w/ my patients and their dr). She also made me feel very comfortable in a very embarrassing uncomfortable situation. She was gentle talk to me step by step upon examination.

Could not have asked for better care in an difficult situation. Dr W worked around various schedules. She attempted less invasive techniques initially. She networked extensively with other doctors related to complications.

As an HIV patient for 3 years. I have seen more than 6 doctors and only one I had a very informative and caring interaction with and that's with Droctor Whisnev. She is, in my book the best. Very caring and straight to the point with companion. Very knowledgable and trust worthy. I have recommended her to my sister and brother. I felt in great and experience d hands. Can't say enough about how great ful I am to have her as my doctor.

Wishnev did an awesome job explaining my daughter's condition, why the surgery was needed, and how it would be performed! She was absolutely, positively remarkable the day of the surgery and I felt my daughter was in beyond capable hands. Her bedside manner was outstanding! She promised to get my daughter patched up and ready to return to college and she delivered. If I thanked her a million times it would never suffice!
