July 14, 2020 8:21 AM

always have a good experience

July 10, 2020 9:41 AM

I have seen Dr. X a few time & have been very satisfied. I needed a form filled & physical exam for job/ER. Dr. Wetzel was very through, did impressive exam. Very pleasant. I will be glad to see Dr. Wetzel & Dr. X anytime in future.

July 10, 2020 12:00 AM

My concerns were always answered and discussed.

July 10, 2020 12:00 AM

Was always satisfied with routine exam and in general.

June 24, 2020 7:48 AM

Dr. Steven M. Witzel is an excellent MD. I would highly recommend him.

June 22, 2020 10:06 AM

Listened, looked me in the eye, smiled, suggested some over the counter meds that worked for me. Didn't rush my visit.

June 22, 2020 10:06 AM

Very, very good he was recommended to me by my neighbor and I will definitely recommend him to everyone too. These kind of doctors are hard to find. I feel secure with him.

May 18, 2020 1:56 PM

During Covid 19 quarantine, I wasn't sure how easy it would be to talk about an urgent medical need with my doctor, however, it was very easy to schedule a telehealth appointment the same day. My doctor talked to me on the phone, had my medical records at hand and was very attentive, as he always is.

May 18, 2020 1:56 PM

It was a very good experience during this confusing time.

May 11, 2020 5:01 PM

It was a very positive experience. I have been with Dr. Witzel for many years and do not want to change due to how knowledgeable he is on things and that he knows me and my history.

May 11, 2020 5:01 PM

Great Experience.

March 30, 2020 1:20 PM

I was so happy with my visit to Dr. Witzel. I had a very nasty cough and he helped me get through it. In a calm and concerned manner.

March 23, 2020 9:32 PM

Dr. Wietzel examined me careful for the cold symptoms I was exhibiting. He listened to my lungs, examined my ears, throat and listened to my heart . He questioned my about my symptoms and determined that I had a cold virus and not the corona virus. I was extremely satisfied with the care I received and the promptness in giving me an appointment.

March 23, 2020 9:32 PM

It was a very good experience.

March 20, 2020 6:19 AM

Very good experience. Doctor & staff very attentive.

March 17, 2020 12:10 PM

Experience was good as always.

March 16, 2020 3:55 PM

Very good experience

March 13, 2020 7:41 AM

Good experience.

March 9, 2020 3:27 PM

Fist visit. We talked well. I felt like he was part of my health "team", not an individual player.

March 7, 2020 4:10 PM

he is outstanding!

March 7, 2020 4:10 PM

he listens to me and weighs what I want to do interms of health care.

March 6, 2020 12:39 PM

Every time I see the doctor there is something incorrectly listed in my list of medications. It makes working with Express Scripts very difficult and requires many phone calls to get straightened out. I've never had this problem with my previous doctor's office.

March 6, 2020 12:39 PM

I love Dr. Witzel I don't love the fact that the office can't keep my medications listed correctly. Advocate people have too many people entering things & so there is more chance for error.

March 3, 2020 7:39 AM

good

March 2, 2020 4:06 PM

Always a good visit.

February 29, 2020 12:10 PM

February 24, 2020 5:44 PM

Good experience

February 24, 2020 4:13 PM

excellent

February 24, 2020 4:13 PM

never bad...all excellent

February 23, 2020 9:52 AM

Doc Witzel always spends time with me, listens and discusses options for treatment. He's one of the best.

February 23, 2020 9:52 AM

I wish it was easier to get an appointment when you need someone because of a sudden illness - not an emergency. For example, you come down with what you think is the flu, medication needs to be taken asap within 2 days, however, you can't get in to see the doctor for a week. I understand scheduling, etc., I just wish there was a way to see a physician quickly in your specific doctors office, not a clinic or doc in the box. Those folks simply do NOT know your history, your medication, allergies, etc., etc.

February 22, 2020 5:33 PM

very good

February 20, 2020 8:50 AM

great doctor and office staff on my first visit to my new doctor, Dr X retired.

February 20, 2020 8:50 AM

great visit

February 14, 2020 5:57 PM

Good

February 14, 2020 5:57 PM

He always cares

February 13, 2020 11:29 AM

Dr. Witzel is one of the best practitioners I've ever encountered because of his friendly, approaching personality and his depth of knowledge in a wide range of medical fields. He's also a superb medical educator!

February 13, 2020 11:24 AM

Always a great experience in that office, doctors & staff are amazing!

February 10, 2020 5:18 PM

My provider is conscientious and caring, taking measures to ensure my issues are addressed.

January 31, 2020 4:26 PM

All I have to say is this is one of best internal medicine practices that me and my wife have gone to.

January 29, 2020 10:31 AM

It was fine. He listens to you with appropriate concern,

January 28, 2020 6:23 AM

My previous Dr. X retired and I needed to find a new Dr. Not easy..either their practice is full or they do not take medicare...Sad but true,,,It took me three days of calls to find someone...I finally came up with Dr.Witzel and it was well worth the time. He was very thorough and spent as much time as needed..

January 27, 2020 5:00 PM

Dr. Witzel was a good listener and spent the right amount of time with me. I didn't feel rushed. The doctor was tied up with another patient before me and a nutse came in to tell me he would be a few minutes late. I appreciated the update!

January 27, 2020 3:51 PM

I always enjoy my time with Dr. Witzel.

January 27, 2020 10:37 AM

Dr. Witzel was good - My first visit with him.

I am very pleased with this provider and the entire office staff. I like talking to the office staff with a problem instead of going through a call center. A call center takes away the personalization effect.
