It took 2 years to get an MRI which came back with proof of my pain complaints. This Dr has never been sympathetic and dismissed everything I said. I'm looking for a different doctor. I was in tears both of my last appointments in a year pleading for an answer to why I was in so much pain. He even left snide remarks in my records after the appointment. He should no longer be a care provider because he does not seem to care at all.

09/28/2017
I recommend the Providence system to everyone. For the record I had BIG pharma-medicine. I distrust it. Buttttttt, after leaving an old-school (fabulous doc) with a nasty pitbull nurse, I LOVE the accountability of Providence. I brag about actually being able to give input on the care I receive. I also brag to my husband about how I can have a blood draw in the AM and by the time I'm back home in the PM, I have the results. (He's in the process of also leaving the old-school doc and will likely be hooking up with Providence.) PLEASE keep caring about input from your "customers". PLEASE keep holding your providers accountable. And PLEASE value docs like Bob Wigert who have been around the block or two and, for whatever reasons, blessed Providence with their presence. Docs like him are precisely WHY we are with you.

09/21/2017
currently experiencing severe IBS. When asked about treatment, Wigerts suggested that I "experiment with Imodium before meals" to avert explosive diarrhea episodes. He has never used the term "IBS" in discussion of the condition, yet that's how he classifies it on MyChart. VERY FRUSTRATED.
100

09/19/2017

08/21/2017
On several occasions in the last 3 months, I've called the Providence office in Kendal Yards, only to be on hold for long periods of time....that were in normal business hours and not during lunch. When I've been in the office, I've watched the phone staff and they don't do anything at full speed. Receptionist is always nice but someone is very slow to respond to incoming calls.

good Physicain and should get a raise
70

07/19/2017
Has not been a good advocate for me trying to get a MRI ordered since OCT of 2016 for L & I injury. I think he should be doing more and trying to be more contact with L & I in ordered to get the order for the test.Has been way to casual about the entire process.
100

07/11/2017
I have had only good experiences with Dr. Wigert & his nurse.
100

07/10/2017
After Dr. appointment, the wait is too long for the blood sample extraction....nearly 70 minutes this past visit.
100

07/10/2017
The only downside I had during this office call was the 20 minute wait for blood work.
100

07/10/2017
while waiting for blood draw a lab worker came out and told me their computer system went down and told me the locations of several other place I could get this done but then returned to tell me they had a way to accommodate me. meant I didn't have to go across town to another lab. very grateful for that.

100

05/04/2017
I primarily use your online technology to ask questions, request referrals, renew prescriptions, etc. It is absolutely amazing. I LOVE that I literally can almost read my lab results by the time I get home from an appt! It is an amazing service. (I previously used a provider who did not have this type of IT. It was a complete disaster just trying to get a message to him.) Dr. Wigert and his staff take excellent care of me. Oh. And, btw, LOVE the new office at Kendall Yards!

04/28/2017
Requiring a 4 month follow up is too short a time span for me.
100

04/24/2017
Only problem I repeatedly run into is the provider's office and my pharmacy communicating. I have to call and check on med status many times.
100
