Dr.Wies is absolutely the best most thorough and determined doctor that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She and her staff have worked vigorously to advocate for me. Thank you

I have only known Dr. Wies a few months as I have always used my blood doctor for my primary. But, when I got this new insurance I was forced to get a real PCP so I chose Dr. Wies out of approved pcp on my plan. I saw her for the first time about 18 months ago and to be honest, I wasn't very happy about having to see her or share with her. I think she felt it as she was very warming and chatty, and, before I knew it, I was opening up to her about my health. Good doctor and eager to help you.

She is friendly and caring. She takes the time to listen to your questions and problems, and then tries to solve them. You do not have to wait long to see her and appointments are easy to make. The staff is courteous and friendly. I trust her decisions and how she handles my problems. Dr Wies answers your questions in a way that you can understand and explain your medical problems clearly.
