Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372.

I love Dr. Widmer as a physician. He listens to me, involves me in my care, and never makes me feel shame or bad about what I am or am not doing. However he is almost impossible to get in to see either for a physical or sick visit which makes it hard to suggest the office. They had to fit me in for the appointment because he was scheduled over a year out for physicals.

He showed knowledge of my medical history and demonstrated genuine interest in understanding me as a (new) patient. The presenting problems that day were addressed thoroughly and plan for remedy made sense. I look forward to a long term relationship with him as my primary doctor.

It is obvious that Dr. Widmer reviews your chart before he comes into the exam room. He has good bedside manners and shows genuine concern for his patients. He welcomes any questions a patient may have and is very responsive. He explains the results of any tests that the patient may have had. I, personally, have a lot of confidence in Dr. Widmer and am comfortable In discussing any health issue I may be experiencing.

Since moving to this area I began using Dr Widmer as my PCP.. I am so grateful my son told us about him & he accepted us as a patient..Dr Widmer is extremely smart, kind & compassionate!! He can explain in great detail about any health problem I am experiencing..He Is very efficient & always careful about all details being sure that any necessary test, injections or future appointments are being handled promptly..Dr Widmer is an asset to BS&W.. Besides being the total package of a great Dr he carries himself with pride yet not arrogant.. He Is always dressed neat & clean careful to details looking fresh w/ironed clothes & nice boots..A Texas doctor
