I can't say enough about *Dr. Wudel. He is awesome. He has made me feel much more comfortable at a terrible time in my life. I feel so much better knowing he is my doctor. I am thankful for him.

7/20/2017

I really liked Dr. WUDELL and his team. I am confident in his ability to care for me.

6/29/2017

Dr. Wudel is the BEST!

6/23/2017

The waiting time was too long. The provider did not appear to be prepared completely for my last office visit. .He asked questions that I thought he should have known if he had looked at my chart. I had some concern when He was a little unprepared for my visit and did not return a call at the time given. He is friendly and personable. I felt good about him until these for mentioned events took place. I am not totally negative about Him and would like to regain my confidence. I believe He is a fine and capable Surgeon but again I am a little unsettled at this time.
