Ratings for Dr. Craig W. Wiesenhutter
I've seen Dr Wiesenhutter several times and the nurse several times now. I am pleased with the progress since my first visit in December. I can walk now and he is not pushing drugs on me since the meth is working well. The office staff is pleasant and the lady that takes blood every visit (Elsa) is an expert. So far I am very content with the treatment that i have received under the care of this office. I especially enjoy the sonograms where i can see the inflamation so that i can see for myself the progress. So far every visit has been punctual. I make an effort never to be late because they have never been running behind when i arrive. The office is small so you don't feel like you are one of thousands being run through.
I was referred to this Dr. for Lupus/RA. He didn't listen to me or read the medical records I brought. He went through a checklist and then started pushing on my joints and barked "I see this all the time in women your age." He handed me pamphlet about Fibro Myalgia with no explanation/justification how I might have this disorder. I have NO symptoms for FM so I started asking HIM questions. He got livid then. When I told him about another condition I had (with medical records and labs in my hands as proof.) he scowled and wouldn't even look at them, then told me I didn't have that condition. He interrupted me several times, was extremely rude and impatient. He got pretty hateful when I said that I thought his diagnosis was inaccurate based on a 3 min. checklist he ran down and an assumption. I ended up walking out of the exam room as he was extremely disrespectful. No one should pay for that kind of service. I don't know how this guy stays in business.
Saw him for the first time today. He was knowledgable and sympathetic. I found him to be very helpful and patient with me. I have had RA for 25 years and have never treated it. I expected him to be impatient with me about that but he was not. He was kind. He gave me a shot of cortozone (sp?) in my knee and did some blood work. I will see him in a week to see what steps i need to take in order to be able to walk again.
Had a intial pos test from primary was reffered to him after that. Told me first test was false pos because he's been doing this for x amount of years and that he sees hundreds of people a yr with this ( when it is a rare disease with not enough cases for good study yet here in cda we must just have an outbreak yeah right) he then tested me for an iv or sexually transmitted disease even though I told him my wife of 15 yrs had already had this test in the last 2 yrs with the birth of our last child. Much more likely than what I had tested pos for 1 riggghhht. Told me I need to think about what I'm doing to my wife and family and to toughen up. The disease I tested pos for was scleroderma I am very symptomatic , he didn't even let me finish the answers to the questions he was asking repeatedly. I will drive to Montana than see him again
I have rhematoid artritis. I've been seeing him for ten years. He has hundreds of patients with RA and we all love him. How could someone rank him a 2.4? They must be silly. I've had problems a few times with his staf. wrong appoints etc.but no big deal
Dr Weisenhutter is rude. Runs tests, and does not follow-up on results. Wanted my primary Dr to treat for any abnormal tests he found, which included blood in my urine, which he did not treat. Another copay to follow up with my pcp. He is very arrogent, and does very little to ask about general health concerns. Never once took my vitals. Never had time to answer my questions. He is more interested in finding patients for his research studies. If you do not match that criteria, he will dismiss you. Do not go to this Dr.. Waist of time.
