Ratings for Dr. Mark A. Wohlgemuth
Had such a bad experience with Dr. Wohlgemoth at this facility. So many things, where do I begin....I had appointments rescheduled multiple times. Almost every time I went, the wait was over an hour, just to get taken back into the offices. The last straw for me was when I had taken time off work, juggled by schedule, and booked an early appointment thinking that there would not be as long of a wait first thing in the morning. WRONG! Dr. Wohlgemoth showed up 45 minutes later than his first scheduled appointment time. I waited over an hour to be seen and ended up leaving to get to work without even seeing him. The staff barely even apologized. I was so frustrated that I had done all this juggling of my schedule to be treated like this. Too bad doctors don't have any repercussions for how they treat patients. He has no value for other people's time. Will never go here again!
If you would like to be talked down to from a Dr. then I would recommend going tot him. I have dealt with sinusitis for years and heard he was the ENT to go to. Unfortunately, I have been going to him for over three years and my problem has only gotten worse. I had sinus surgery from him and since I my issues continued. It was apparent that he was getting annoyed that I was not getting better and co tinued to just have me do a catscan and take new meds. My final apppointment he was extremely rude and told me he exhausted all resources and that he couldn't help me. It was so terrible to hear from a doctor that you trusted to say those words. He was so taken back that my case was difficult that he became beyond empathetic and insensitive. I promise you I will find a solution and will never go to a doctor that is rude and unhelpful. Please do not waste your time as I did.
Worst experience ever!! My daughter was seen for reoccurring nose bleeds. Dr. Wohlgemuth had the worst bedside manner I have ever experienced. While he was numbing her nose (with a needle) and she was shaking and crying because it was painful he sharply told her to "stop crying!" Needless to say, we stopped mid procedure and left. He told my daughter she was disrespectful because she corrected him on some of her medical history, really? Wow! I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.
I went to this doctor under a referral from my primary physician. They called me numerous times prior to the appointment to ensure I was on time and had my papers filled out so as to have a smooth visit. I arrived early as requested since this was my first visit. I waited 45 minutes beyond my time or a total of 55 minutes. I asked for a refund of my copay and for my parking. They gave that to me noting that if I waited a few minutes more they could put me in a room. That would just be another wait as usual. I am tired of this lack of respect for patients. I told them to call me if they can figure out how to be on time. To add insult, the parking credit given was not enough to cover the time they kept me waiting. As in other professions, I would expect at least a little courtesy to inform patents along the way as to the timing and progress. This lack of professionalism and patient respect is appalling to me.
Very nice person and good bedside manner however, questionable skills. Brought my son to him 3 or 4 times and just kept doing the same thing, giving him anitbiotics and looking up his nose. It wasn't until I demanded a biopsy and MRI that we found out that my son had stage 4 cancer!!! By the grace of God, my son is in remission.
