Dr. Wiseman was very helpful to me as he was able to address all of my concerns and answer all ofmy questions. I felt satisfied by Dr. Wiseman's analysis of my issue and felt like I had received the help I was seeking out. However, I expect doctors to explain what they are doing in detail before touching me at all, and this doctor did not do that every time, and was not the most gentle while examining my ears/nose/throat. I would have felt more comfortable if this doctor had given me more warning and explanation before physical contact and had been more gentle as some ENT examinations were painful. I do believe he is knowledgeable and able to address ear/nose/throat issues quickly.

Super strange... the front desk staff was great but Dr. Wiesman made no effort to introduce himself or make me feel comfortable. Very stuffy and awkward. The office is weird and cosmetic surgery focused but there are also pamphlets on depression. Confusing how he specializes in ear, nose and throat. I left early and the doctor didn't even make eye contact when he saw me asking questions to the staff

It was expensive and led to no diagnosis. Doctor told me his audiologist went home early that day so I would have to schedule an additional appointment in order to see them as well. Better off finding a more committed ENT rather than one that doubles in Cosmetics.

Dr. Wiesman was amazing. I visited him for a tonsillectomy procedure after being told by so many physicians that I was fine he took a glance and immediately understood that my tonsils needed to be removed. Just 6 days later I was scheduled for surgery which he performed flawlessly. Would definitely return. Thank you so much Dr. Wiesman!

His office is conveniently located and staff is nice. I had never been to an ENT before and this being my first experience was rather jarring. He came into the room, had his back to me the entire time while he typed on a computer. He then proceeded to examine my sinuses without any communication. Before I knew which way was up he had a camera stuck deep inside my nasal passages into my throat. He didnt walk me through any of his exam process which I felt was wildly unprofessional (being a medical student myself). He did not let me know what to expect from what he was doing, that I would feel numbess in my throat or what he was looking for with the camera. He quickly tried to sell me an in office CT because a CT under my insurance would need a preauthroization, but I declined thinking I would just wait for my insurance approval and go to the my respective imaging center. MONTHS go by with no word from his office about the approval on my CT. Thank goodness the problem resolved in the meantime, god forbid it should have been anything urgent. It seemed like I was a patient lost in their system, and had to advocate for my own CT. All in all, It wasn't the best expeirience I've ever had with a physician.

I visited this clinic for a mild ear infection. I waited for at least 30 minutes despite my appointment. Dr. Wiesman seemed very impatient and unfriendly. He cleaned my ear which caused a lot of pain, but he did not seem to care. Overall not a very pleasant experience.

Was told 2 different times that they were in-network with my insurance, only to find that it was billed out of network. They did nothing to fix the situation after I called multiple times. The actual visit was pretty disappointing as well. He didn't act like he was really listening to what I had to say and didn't address all of my concerns, only my primary complaint.

I went to Dr. Wiesman for a sinus infection and a lump in my throat. He performed a nasal endoscopy which I've had done plenty of times given that I get sinus infections annually. I came out of the office being told I need to buy over-the-counter flonase... More than 5 months later, I receive a bill for a very large amount of money because my incredibly good insurance doesn't cover the procedure. I look and see that he's charged the insurance provider for a nasal endoscopy AND diagnostic laryngoscopy. Not knowing what a diagnostic laryngoscopy was, I quickly researched it and found that this was NOT performed during my visit!!! My insurance provider is right in assuming that these two procedures do not happen at the same time, in the same visit. I am repealing this bill with the office of Dr.Wiesman and will NEVER return as he is blatantly taking advantage of his clients.

I was seen right at my appointment time, which is great. Dr. Wiesman made a quick assessment of my issue, and then asked me if I would rather treat it now, or come back. He then treated my issue, gave me concise follow-up instructions, and I was out the door. While there wasn't a lot of small talk, I felt like he was focused and gave me excellent care.

Dr. Gary Wiesman is an amazing ENT. I've not been able to breath out of my nose for 15+years which causes tremendous issues with sleep at night. Dr. Wiesman performed an out patient surgery Friday and by Monday afternoon I feel like a new person. Alma who works at reception is on the ball and others could only hope to replicate how helpful she is in working with insurance companies to get approval for surgery. Overall, extremely competent group and I highly recommend.

Doctor visits are typically not the favorite of most, however my recent visit to Dr. Gary Wiesman was nothing short of a pleasure. The receptionist greeted me immediately upon arrival and within minutes I was in one of Dr. Wiesman's waiting rooms. Dr.. Wiesman could not have been more pleasant, attentive, thorough and expedient. If all doctor visits were this pleasant and easy I'd never mind going to the doctor.
