Dr. Wenkert was MOST helpful in explaining the blood test and how that affected my thyroid med level. I truly felt that he was MOST concerned about getting my correct thyroid level adjusted. I look forward to his being my Endocrinologist in the years ahead. Another friend uses him and equally likes him, too.

The one thing I didn't like, and it didn't sit with me until I got back home, that Dr Wenckert wrote me a prescription for my cholesterol before it even got tested, and I still have not seen those results, only what he send to me in an email to a question about it.

He was very nice. He did have another Dr come in and see me before he did and then conferred with her before he came in. My wait time wasn't too bad considering I had another dr come in and ask a lot of questions while he was tied up! and, he apologized for the wait when he came in.

Dr. Wenkert is very attentive and thorough. He cares about his patients and there have been 2 times when he has called me after hours to check on me. The 1st time when I had thyroid cancer, he performed the biopsy. The 2nd time when he was concerned about getting my T3 T4-TSH bloodwork done. While I was in the hospital 3 - 4 different doctors ordered my TSH bloodwork and per my insurance I'm only allowed 4 tests a year. He was concerned and is currently working on a solution.

Dr. Wenkert took longer with me to set up appointments to search for cause for an unexplained abnormal lab result.

May 23, 2019
he couldn't provide me with any option of changing my care plan. he told me to go home and read about options and call the different supply companies. I want a doctor who can say "ok with what you have told me of yourself and your lifestyle, here are options that could work". he couldn't give me any advice on options other then recommending the option I'm already on which I do not want. He doesn't seem to know anything about any options other than Medtronic because that is the rep he works with. it seemed like a business deal instead of a provider who cared about what I needed instead of where he gets his money from. very disappointed. I'm know left to figure out my care on my own, contact the different companies and figure out how to get something ordered. why have a doctor. I literally only need him so he can sign what I tell him to for. prescription. he is at least cooperative in giving the prescription I ask for.

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!

this is the best provider possible. HE LISTENS to anything a patient has to say about treatments the Doctor may be recommending. Usually, doctors have their own ideas and will dismiss everything and patient may be concerned about.

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.
