I cannot say enough great things about John Weidinger. He treats me with the utmost respect and is very helpful and resourceful in my healthcare needs.
the dr was very nice and friendly. i believe this was the 2nd time ben saw this dr. dr remembered that it was my husband who brought my son to his last appt. he listened and explained answers to my questions. and first thing this am, I got a call from him with lab results. he was friendly, nice and professional and didnt hang up on my right away, he wasnt in a hurry. he said have a good day, I said thank you, you too. and he said thank you. goodbye instead of just hanging up quickly like some other drs. hes very nice. I like him and we schedule his next visit with him too. usually its who ever is available, but hes in the office the next time ben needs seen so we will see him again.

This provider is excellent. He takes the time to process my concerns and goes above and beyond.
My son really appreciates that Mr. Weidinger takes the time to talk directly to him and explain in a manner that is easy for a 13 year old boy to understand. He reassured my son during his exam that he was covering him because although my son was embarrassed, he didn't want me to leave the room. We really like this provider!
my son and I like Dr. John Widenger so much. he is awesome in listening to my concerns as a mom. he listens well to Mark's comments too and has wonderful stories and advice on how to make Mark listen and follow Mommy's suggestions and ministrations. my son actually make sure he follows whatever Dr. W. tells him to do.so thank you for being such a great doctor. we need more doctors like you who are as my son said very "cool!... he knows about mine craft and space!"

John is amazing! There was a misunderstanding in appointment times, but he still gave us a great deal of time and did not make us feel rushed. He is a wealth of information and quite perceptive, too!
the best Dr and staff
John is great! My son was diagnosed with T1D two years ago and is now 15. He has not been as diligent in checking his blood sugar as he needs to be, and John is great at being kind, but firm, to let my son know how important it is to check is blood sugar regularly. John answered my MANY questions and is extremely knowledgeable.
Dr. W. was respectful of our decision to use natural therapies.
The doctor was wonderful!! Never once did we feel rushed or that we werent important. He listened to us and took time with us and followed up with a phone call of daughters results.
Dr. W was very kind and patient. He interacted well with my daughter.
This was the first time we have seen John. we always have an awesome experience at children's hospital. Everyone is amazing.
John is ALWAYS amazing when we visit explaining everything as it should happen or might happen and following up with us after the appt. My son is always excited when he goes to see him because he knows that everything will be explained as he is being examined and the testing afterwards.
Dr John Weidinger is a true professional. He never rushes us. Answers every question to our understanding. We think we and you are very luck to have him as a Dr. He is a true asset. He has made such a positive impact in our life. I cant write enough good things about him. He makes our child understand the complexity of diabetes with out overwhelming him. GREAT MAN!

As a whole Children's Hospital is the best possible place to be
They were very good to us. We make this trip every three months. It is a 3 hour trip. They are very courteous to us. We appreciate everything they do for us.
Everyone we saw during the visit was very nice, friendly and helpful. We really appreciated it.
John Weidinger is excellent. He takes the time to explain things to my daughter and truly listen. He also goes above and beyond. Our family medical history is unusual. He has worked to understand it and how that may or may not relate to the diabetes diagnosis.
The doctor and nutritionist were great in providing everything my son and I needed to move forward in making him healthier and having a better lifestyle.
Excellent staff! So pleasant...thorough and accomodating...we were late even though we left 2 hours early from less than hour away...we were seen with little wait and no rude comments or judgements. The only negative thing I MAY be able to say is I don't recall washing of hands upon entering room of staff. It's so nice to go where staff are pleasant!
the doctor was very friendly and was able to put my child at ease
John has been wonderful. This was our second visit w/ John and he took time to explain everything and has had an immediate plan for our concerns.
Another good visit with John Weidinger! Gave us information on new diabetes care that we will discuss at our next appointment in April, 2017
we had a great experience. the doctors were very thorough, informative and patient.
Excellent provider and team
john is attentive and thorough
GREAT CHILDRENS HOSPITAL #1
dr. weidenger was very thourough in explaining all developments my son has, what our next step will be and giving me suggestions/instructions on how to best care for my son. definitely a very wonderful doctor whom I will highly recommend to my family and friends. he is ver enthusiastic though we are probably one of his last patients that day, he talked nicely to my son and showed interest on all my son has to say. he made my child feel a third party in the conversation but someone just as important as mommy.
we arrived at 12...like we were told and not seem until about 1 and then waiting in room for until about 1:45. Dr can't in and we discussed everything and out by 2.
