Dr. Wilsnack seems to know his craft but I didn’t feel like he really listened. He seemed rushed and kept cutting me off when I was describing what was wrong with me and didn’t listen for the context. Our time together was under 10 min, and I felt like he didn’t really take time to understand me.

Dr. Wilsnack is competent and capable. He has worked with me on many of my illnesses. He will also refer me to a specialist in the Northwestern network as soon as he diagnoses the problem. I'm 73 years old, and as I've aged(and sometimes have gotten into accidents), I've encountered more illnesses and issues that come up for "older folks." Dr. Joel has been a steady rudder to navigate me to see the proper specialist. I prefer to think of myself as healthy, and in no small way, Dr. Wilsnack has helped me every step of the way.
