My husband first saw Dr. Wenske last month and I met him there. Dr. Wenske was on time. I was late and he very kindly waited for me. He explained everything thoroughly and patiently answered every question. He is obviously very knowlegable and caring. I am a nurse so I have higher standards than most! He put us both at ease and made my husband feel he was being cared for by an expert who was also very kind.

Dr. Wenske is a superb urologist with excellent bed side manners. He listens intently and patiently answers questions. The staff is polite and efficient. Scheduling appointments, arranging labs and calling in medications (even prior authorizations) are a breeze. In all, a friendly caring doctor should you need a urologist.

Dr Wenske is an outstanding professional. He has twice removed tumors on my bladder. He took the time to explain the procedure to me, kept me informed throughout of how it was progressing, and showed me the monitor so I could see for myself. Although he had a hectic schedule that day when I asked him to inform my wife of the results in went out to the waiting room and reassured her.

He was extremely late, rude, curt and dismissed my concerns. He treated me as if I know nothing about my own body and how I feel.
