      Dr. Wenger is incredible as a doctor. She sits and explains everything in detail and answers all questions as thoroughly as she can. She has made me and my family as comfortable as possible during a very difficult time and has the best bed side manner with my daughter. I am so grateful we have someone as wonderful as her on our team to help us through this process.
