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 shows real concern for you as a patient. She listens well and provides well-thought out options. She doesn't rush yet pretty much meets the appointment time.

She is a very good doctor she is very exorbitant when she is doing what she supposed to be doing when it comes to a rash or anything on your skin it has took me 10 years to find out what is wrong with my skin and everybody kept saying it was a fungus and now she says that it is psoriasis and she is the first one to take blood work to determine what is causing it I think her and what great work she is doing she's helping me in every way thank you dr. Wise for your great help

Great experience. Staff was very friendly and Dr. Wise was very personable and thorough. I am a new patient and they were able to schedule me an appointment the day after my initial call. I highly recommend Dr. Wise without exception.

Great doctor. Listens to every detail of the problems. All of the staff is very friendly. Dr. Wise has been the best doctor to deal with my skin cancer. She makes each visit as pain free as I have ever had. I've been going to her for a few years now and wish I had been seeing her all along.

I cannot say enough good things in a review about how much I would recommend Dr Wise. Of course she is all the usual things you’d want in your doctor: caring, experienced, and she has a calm and efficient bedside manner that puts you at ease. I often feel nervous with new physicians but I felt instantly at ease with her. But for me, to my very great relief, in just one visit, she was able to heal an issue I’d been dealing with for over ten years which three previous dermatologists had recommended leaving alone. She fixed my minor but very uncomfortable problem in one visit, with no issues, and with no pain, and I feel wonderful now! I wish I had found her years ago. Overall, she is highly recommended: the kind of person you’d enjoy talking to if she just happened to be sitting next to you at the park. But - even better than simply being pleasant to talk to - she was a highly effective physician! Thank you, Dr Wise!!
