Ratings for Dr. Lexy Wistenberg
I too have gone to Lexy for years. It took me all this time to realize that the only time I can count on seeing her is for my physical. The test of the time it is either the nurse practitioner or she will doctor over the phone. I don't feel that is practicing good medicine. I finally decided to get out for the sake of my health. Do yourself a favor and don't get trapped into bad medicine.
Dr. Wistenberg is wonderful, but have noticed over the years she has gotten busier & harder for her to spend time with you. But, I was willing to stick with her - since I have gone to her for years. But, even she can't make up for the rude staff (I always feel like part of a cattle herd when I approach the front desk & am eventually routed into one of the exam rooms by one of the uncaring staff who NEVER introduces themselves & then to another person drawing labs who looks equally upset she has to work.) Also, the office has limited parking - I have witnessed 2 accidents in my years of going there. Plus, it is very difficult to make an appointment for a regular physical. I finally gave up & switched to another Dr. & office, where the employees are more professional, the Dr. is truly just as wonderful, & we can schedule appointments so much easier! I will miss Dr. Wistenberg - but enough was enough!
Dr. Wistenberg is a wonderful doctor. Calm, patient, attentive, professional. Her staff is the nastiest, unhelpful, argumentative, uncaring and impolite bunch. The only reason I stay with this practice is I really like her as a doctor. The rest of my family moved to a different practice and are much happier.
I am not quite sure that I am reviewing the same doctor as everyone else. Dr. Wistenberg has been my doctor for years, and I have only seen her in person for my physicals. I understand that she has a limited schedule, so that is not so much what bothers me. When I first came to the practice, I found Dr. Wistenberg very patient and personable. As the years have progressed, she seems to have lost the "bedside manner" that I trusted her in part of. The problem is that now, she takes care of my family and not simply myself. I don't like leaving with questions that I feel I was unable to ask. Where I felt before that she listened, I feel as if I'm now talking to a wall that occasionally throws a glance and a "uh hmm" my way. I used to leave feeling like I completely understand the health issues my family faced, and now I feel left in the dark. It's really disheartening to see this change, but I can't in good conscience recommend her at this point.
