Ratings for Dr. Christian Wessling
Waited well over an hour with children. Small waiting room. Some of staff is helpful, others not. Doctor worth waiting for--very knowledgeable & reasonable in terms of treatment! If he had a good location, well-trained people answering the phones, they'd likely be booked up months out. We also love the nurse practitioner. The parking lot is too small & you can't park on the street. When his schedule gets backed up, there is no empty parking spaces. Recommend calling ahead, but most of the staff answering the phone aren't great.
Dr. Wessling and his caregivers provide extremely knowledgeable information on holistic care with a Medical Doctor's background. Over the years I've had much success with various ailments, including a simple remedy for depression which became difficult to deal with during peri-menopause. Additionally, huge progress was made reducing the severity and struggles with my son's eczema ... even beyond the partial success that we received with, the also wonderful, Children's Hospital Dermatology. I am grateful for the healing with this group of caregivers. (About the punctuality thing ... I've just come to accept that each visit will most likely be late, and I bring a book. Dr. Wessling never cuts short the time that a patient is being seen, and since it is in response to a patient's needs, it can not be known in advance. Much more time is wisely spent with patients than at a regular doctors' offices; so I understand the need for patients' patience.)
I have been seeing Dr. Wessling and his staff for several years and have nothing but good things to say. He is willing to think of options outside of traditional western medicine, which is really refreshing if you are used to doctors who do little other than to write a prescription for antibiotics for any and all ailments. I wish that he accepted more insurance providers, but I have at times been willing to pay fully out of pocket to get an opinion from this office. Wait time with Dr. Wessling is pretty abysmal, but not so with the other caregivers, and Dr. Wessling is always worth the wait.
The wait time is always awful when I have an appointment; general wait time is 20-30 minutes, and sometimes longer. Treatment has been mixed for me. I have used the nurse practioners along with Dr. Wessling; sometimes I get conflicting advice. Also, bottom line is I still do not feel better nor have any relief from menopausal problems, along with hypothyroid issues such as hair falling out, weight gain despite diet and exercise, tiredness, etc. I feel just as frustrated as going to any other dr., so this is very disappointing for me. I will keep searching to find someone in the medical profession that can help me, because, so far, no one has, and this has been continuing for over 9 years. I just keep getting worse and worse, despite my doing everything that the drs. tell me to do, yet there is absolutely no relief. I do believe that this dr. knows so much and can be of benefit to many patients, but unfortunately, nothing has helped so far, for me. He is definitely worth a try.
A very smart doctor, thinks outside the box, and promises that he will help you...and he does! I finally am beating chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia with his help. His office staff is helpful and respectful. Appointments are fairly easy to get either with Dr. Wessling or a nurse practitioner on his staff. I have also seen two of his N.P's. They are also very caring. I cannot imagine going anywhere else, although his office is 50 miles from my house. Initial appointments are quite detailed and are for one hour, with follow-up visits being 1/2 hour. After many visits for myself and several more for my family members, I cannot think of anything negative to say about this doctor or his associates.
