Did a great job finding and diagnosing my problem. I had an allergic reaction to mold which in turn caused me to asthma.

My husband had an appointment with Dr. Wesley Head for COPD breathing problems. We were very disappointed in his manner. He made a fat joke at my husband which was way out of line! What doctor makes fun of his first time to visit patient? He must have been a bully in school! We will not go back to this so called Doctor! We were there over 2 hours. They are very unorganized. Save your money and time do not go to this Doctor!

Dr. Head has been my husband's doctor for Sleep Apnea and COPD for many years now. He was able to get him off of Oxygen and his COPD has greatly improved under his care. He is a good Sleep Apnea doctor as well and my husband's tests have gone very well and helped him greatly. Dr. Head has always been conscientious and helpful. His staff is also very patient-centered and we have had a very good experience with everyone in his office.

I met/saw Dr Head one day out of the 7 days my husband was hospitalized earlier this year (2017). My husband has stage 4 COPD and it wasn't looking good. I had questions and concerns. Never once did Dr Head acknowledge me, even when my husband told him who I was. He spoke directly to my husband then left the room. I approached him in the hall with my questions and concerns. He was short, rude and crude. I hope to not ever see this man again.
