Dr. Wenkert took time from his COVID-19 impacted work to see me in person. I was really impressed with his dedication to his long-time patient (me). He is very thorough, very learned, and conscientious about cleanliness, sanitation and accuracy of patient's records and continued care. He has always exhibited these qualities as a physician, long before the pandemic (COVID19). He can be trusted, confided in and respected as an exemplary physician and leader, the best of the best physicians at Baylor Scott & White.
