I'm grateful to Dr Wencil for her perseverance in helping me find relief in my years long problem with irritation of the mouth and gums. She showed compassion and empathy and was determined to help me. out of all the other doctors I've visited, she is the only person that was able to help. Very thankful!

Outstanding courtesy respect and care from provider. My regular appointment in summer was cancelled due to COVID, resulting in this time having an excess of ear wax. it was more difficult but the process never hurt at all. AND was it ever a great relief to hear clearly again. it was a good accomplishment including full ENT check up.

This nurse practitioner showed no respect or concern for my condition. Her comments was "I have seen worse.' She gave the impression that I was not needed to be seen. She also provided no summary of my appointment and when I asked for that summary, her reply was: "I have nothing to say." For my condition, I simply needed another opinion other than my primary care provider, and an opinion of a specialist. There was nothing forthcoming from this nurse practitioner. I did look at My Chart later and found that summary which essentially was non-descriptive. This practitioner actually missed the point of my visit and added nothing. She was rather condescending and gave me the impression that I wasting her time. When I talk with my pharmacist later, he actually solved the problem of why I had this condition. It was due to my taking antihistamines which was entirely missed by my primary care provider and this nurse practitioner.
