Biography

Biography

Relationships are an important part of his practice. Dr. Wenger makes it a point to get to know his patients. What they do for work, what their hobbies are and what their home life is like. Understanding someone personally, he says, allows him to provide better care for them, especially generations of families he has seen for the last 30 years in practice.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

It would have been nice if my Dr. Listened to what i was saying and feeling instead of trying to let me know how smart he was. I told him how much pain I am in and the medication he gave me does not work and he refuse to even give my options on a different kind of medication. [...] I still am in pain I can't use what he gave me and the pain is 24-7. I thought the Dr. was to listen out for the patients need and not give me something that does not work its the dame medication that he gave me last year and i told him then also it doesn't work so I stop taking it thrn as well. it was a waste of my time to take off work to come see him and as for. still have the same problem and be in pain like this. At least he should have done an xray of my neck and arm or even examined the area that I was telling him where the pain is. Not just for to day squeeze my hand and that was it then give me a prescription for something that want help me.

Through the years, I have received excellent care from DR. Wenger. I can not imagine a better doctor. I have been extremely happy with everyone from the receptionists check in, the nurses, and other medical personnel to the clerk check out. I have not had a bad experience.

The wait was long considering they asked me to come 30 minutes early for paperwork. Doctor didn't look at paperwork only reviewed records from 2015 and went over coveage. Doctor didn't come back in room after procedure was done to verify issue was resolved. I was asked to sign and complete medical release and the next day they couldn't find release forms and voicemail was garbled so I didn't get directed to correct person nor did they find paperwork. I've yet to make appointment for follow up

Dr. Wenger is one of the best physicians I have ever been treated by. He always takes time with his patients and makes sure that they feel comfortable about their medical conditions. His bedside manner is classic and provides the complete sense that he generally cares about your well being and not just clearing the appointment calendar.
