    Dr Wisotzky and his Resident? Fellow? Doctor were excellent.

  • Mar 25, 2022

    Dr. Wisotzky was very informative and put things into perspective as to what maybe going on before he made his suggestions; I agreed.

  • Mar 21, 2022

    Dr. Wisotzky is the best. He has a great bedside manner, a great listener, a beautiful personality, great memory (always greets me with a smile and treats me as if he sees me daily). He goes above and beyond his scope of work. He immediately called a protege to see if she could see me for a follow through for my condition.
