I think educating patients about their diagnoses and treatments is very important. Patients want to tell their story and listening lets them know we care.

Dr. Wise was extremely thorough during my initial visit. She was easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about all of my Transplant issues. It was very easy to get an appointment to see her, which was great for my husband and I who just moved here from Houston Texas.
