dr fensky is very knowledgable. he and his staff take the time to revew my progress before and during the visit. then we talk about options and risk reward. then we decide on a path forward. then we race view risk reward and make the final plan. in am confident in am receiving the best care money can buy.

Every one was great, but the nurse practitioner was nice but a little too serious needs to smile more
Oct. 24, 2019
The provider Dr. Fenske is excellent! my only problem was that I wasn't checked in correctly and then had to wait 2 hours to see my Doctor. And that was not the Doctor's fault, the office staff needs more training. That being said, all the Office Staff were very polite and apologetic about the situation.

doctor was late to the appointment over an hour ,totally unacceptable . I was upset and let him know I was upset. people are busy and health is important. I understand people run late. I was there over 2 hours including lab work for a 15 minute appointment. again totally unacceptable.
