My husband saw Dr. Wishnev to have a Sebaceous Cyst removed. Because of other health issues she did the procedure in a hospital for his safety. I appreciate her concern for his well being. She did a great job and the area is healing very nicely. It is good to find a doctor that takes the time to explain everything thoroughly and answer all questions no matter how trivial. I highly recommend her to anyone needing the surgeries she performs.

Dr. Wishnev saved my life. Her surgical skills and human compassion are second to none. She always had my back and went out of her way to ensure I had the best care possible. She was a huge part of my emotional healing through the scariest time of my life. I couldn't be more grateful and would recommend her to anyone.

First and foremost, I would like to thank Dr. Wishnev for practically saving my life! From the very beginning, Dr. Wishnev listened to my concerns, explained here surgical plans, and was able to perform both surgeries successfully. Her bedside manners is top notch and you will know right away that she really cares for your well being. Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Wishnev. I think what I liked best was that she took the time to explain to me my condition and was patient enough to answer all the questions in a language that I could easily understand. She is an excellent doctor with a terrific bedside manner

Seeing a proctologist can be an embarrassing experience. Dr Wishnev is one of the rare Las Vegas doctors who actually takes the time to talk to you and who really seems to know what she's doing. It's weird to say my favorite doctor in Vegas is a proctologist, but so far I haven't found many other doctors (of any specialty) that compare. If only they were all this nice and this competent.

In the beginning of 2016 I was in and out of the hospital for months at a time dealing with ulcerative colitis. Due to treatments not calming it down, it came to a conclusion that I would need to have surgery to remove my colon and be given an ostomy bag. Dr. Wishnev performed 3 surgeries on me: giving me the ostomy and then reversing it, all of which were done phenomenally! She's an amazing surgeon and made me feel at ease during & after each operation. She also truly cares about her patients!

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.
