    My first visit with Dr. Waisanen as my primary physician was excellent. Even though she wore a mask, I could see her smile as she entered the room and introduced herself. During our discussion I saw concern and knowingness in her eyes. I came away with a clear understanding of the health areas discussed and confidence moving forward. The Medical Tech, Sillecki (spelling?) radiated warmth and compassion.

    I saw Dr. Waisanen for the first time for a physical and to get established here in Ft. Myers. I was very pleased with the efficiency of the office staff, medical assistants and Dr. Waisanen. Dr. Waisanen spent ample time to get to know me and my concerns and not make me feel she was rushed. She was very friendly and made me feel at ease. I look forward to having her as my primary care physician for years to come.
