Although it was difficult getting the appointment, my transmission went out on my vehicle and Dr. Wenkert worked with me as I had to walk to the appointment. (30 minute delay bc I had to walk around the train on the Tracks nearby Santa Fe clinic) I called to let him know I was grabbing shuttle at the clinic and I was there by 20 minutes later. I told Dr. Wenkert I haven\'t had a script for thyroid pills for ages and was taking pills purchased in Mexico. Dr. Wenkert doesn\'t think those pills worked but we are taking steps to get my health issues back to normal. He\'s an awesome provider, he called me at 7:30 the same night letting me know he wanted to raise my dose. I\'m hoping I will be healthy again in 4 months!

Bedside manner is wanting at times, but it is clear Dr. Wenkert is a good person, and his fund of knowledge is exceptional. One gets the feeling, though, that he is accustomed to dictating the care plan more often than crafting it in partnership with his patient-a care model that is outdated, at best. Still, I would recommend him and his staff to friends should they need an endocrinologist.

Dr. Wenkirt, I thought was very thorough in looking up my past history and test results before making any decisions on any future treatment or any diagnoses. Further testing was advised before any decisions would be made. He explained his thoughts and reasoning behind them. I was very impressed with the time he spent and explaining everything to me.

He seemed very knowledgeable and kind. I was just a little miffed because I was not sure what I had a true issue with was coming through. It could have been the way I was explaining it though but sometimes (not necessarily in this case) I feel a bit brushed off by doctors, as if I do not know my body. When you have had a condition for over a decade, you can tell when things are not right. It\'s hard conveying that though and as I said, I am not sure I was clear.

This Doctor did not listen to my concerns, I need a biopsy of my thyroid nodule and he refused me, telling me I don\'t have a nodule. I explained I had a biopsy 4 years ago of the nodule. He wanted me to prove it to him, really? So I convinced him to do thyroid ultrasound, oh it was there! I waited over an hour in the room for him and this is how I\'m treated?
