I have been a patient of Dr.Wenzel for quite a few years. She is very important to me in my health care decisions, in fact, I look to her for advice that anyone else would go to their PCP.
Dr. Wenzel is the most prepared and professional Dr. I've seen. She has addressed and treated my Auto-Immune disease better than any Dr. prior.
Dr Wenzel is wonderful, and without doubt the best dr I have ever had. I have one ask of her however, and that is for her to add into her discharge notes the specifics regarding what she wants regarding medication changes so that I have them in writing and so that we are both on the same page! Usually there are builds or declines over certain periods and she goes thru that info quite quickly at the end of the appointment. writing it down would be a good add.
Dr. Wenzel saved my life!!!
Excellent provider. Listened and explained things patiently and thoroughly.
Very good at listening to me and my questions. Spend time to discuss items with me.
the office visit was very long, I arrived at 8am, did not see the doctor til 11am.
Dr. Wenzel is the best doctor I have ever had. I have recommended her to others and I do not do that lightly.
DR. Wenzel is an over the top physician with incredible skills and knowledge and patient oriented care...she is THE reason I stay with UPMC

I love my doctor...she has saved my life and my asthma has greatly improved since I chose her to be my doctor.
Dr. Wenzel is my Pulmonologist. My experience at this visit was a GOOD one. She took time to talk with me about some issues I've been having with my Asthma due to a URI. She increased one of my medications confident that it would improve my breathing.
Dr. Wenzel is clearly an outstanding doctor. She is caring, concerned, and relates well with the patient. Medically, it is obvious that Dr. Wenzel is exceptionally knowledgeable in all aspects of her profession.
This Dr. is amazing! All your Dr's should be half as caring and competent as Dr. Wendell. I would highly recommend her.
i thought she was excellent, she took the time to answer all questions and did a thorough exam.
Dr Wenzel is the best. I am so fortunate to have her as my doctor. I don't know if I would be alive if not for her.
Dr. Sally Wenzel is the best specialist I have ever seen. She is super knowledgeable about my lung condition and is very easy to talk to. I'm very lucky to have her as my doctor and know I'm getting the best care possible.
Very caring and knowledgeable as well as the Fellow
Either Dr. Wenzel or her nurse Catherine Vitari have always responded to my calls and have always addressed my concerns. Both are very professional and caring health professionals. They also take their time explaining anything I don't understand.
Dr. Wenzel is over the top wonderful physician....not only brilliant and able to nurture her patients to health but has an awesome bedside manner...I have never had a physician any time any place who is as available to patients as Dr. Wenzel...

Dr Wenzel is fabulous
I am very fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Wenzel. She is truly an exceptional doctor. If there is a treatment for your medical problem, Dr. Wenzel is the one that will find it. I could not ask for better care. Not only because of her expertise but she has genuine care and concern for her patients. Her staff is also top notch. Nurse Vitari is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. She too is an outstanding professional. You can always count on Cathy to help you.
Dr. Wenzell is the best doctor in the world when it comes to asthma. I am so pleased that she is my doctor and has been for some years.
Dr. Wenzel is awesome!
Dr Sally Wentzel has been professional and deligent in my care
Dr. Wenzel and Cathy are the best. they understand my current medical condition and are great people. I have never ever had a bad experience at that office. They always take the extra steps when providing care.
Dr Wensel is very one on one with me! she's one of a kind! couldn't want a more thorough physician!
Dr. Wenzel is both knowledgeable and the MOST caring doctor! Her patients become close friends and her concern for each patient is uppermost in her conscious! The loss of a patient is deeply troubling to her. 13 years ago, I was sent to see her for the very first time. She saved my life! She has been one of the greatest blessings in my life! She has rare qualities for any doctor! Her support has meant more to me than words could possibly express.
Sally Wenzel is an excellent physician.

I'm pleased with Dr. Wentzel and her staff.
none all visits weregood
Dr Wenzel is awesome, always trying to find the best next step in my care
I usually have a good experience when I need to come for an appointment. Appreciate the courtesy and interest shown during the time I am in the room for them to take blood, etc.,
Always professional when I'm in her office. I couldn't ask for better care . We are blessed to have her in the UPMC system.
I love Dr Wensel she's the best and her nurse Kathy is very helpful with questions I have no matter what time of day I know I can call her and she will answer my question or get back with me
Dr. Wendell and her team have given me back my life. I travel to UPMC from New York for treatment. I was very limited in my activities before coming to UPMC. I have been able to resume any activities I care to participate in without restrictions. The new medication developed through Dr. Wenzel's research has been extremely effective. I am most grateful.
As always, I was provided with excellent care and compassion.
Love Dr Wenzel. Always has time time for questions & concerns. Always knows all about me and every issue. Never is upset about how well I follow instructions - takes my issues in consideration. Calming and reassuring. Unbelievably knowable about everything I have - not just her specialty so she can see me as a whole and not just segmented in her area ~ Best!!
Dr. Wenzel, is the consumate professional.. I have a difficult auto-immune disease, and she has been excellent in developing a strategy to reduce my symptoms. I have 100% confidence in Dr. Wenzel.
There will never be a better doctor than Dr. Wenzel. The care she and her staff provides is outstanding.
I mentioned that I didn't see Dr Wenzel within 15 minutes of my scheduled appt. I saw on the board that Dr Wenzel's status was "delayed". Had this been most other doctors that I now see for other reasons, I probably would have been annoyed, but with Dr Wenzel, based on the excellent care she has provided me, I would have waited the entire day to see her if I had to. I'll plead redundancy, but it I would be remiss if I didn't mention one more time that the Doctors, nurses, staff, etc., at UPMC know how to do it the way it should be done. In my opinion, they should be the model for what should be expected when it comes to hospital protocol. I drive over 3 hours each way every time I have an appointment and I have never complained about that because the treatment I receive both medically and hospitably is outstanding.
Dr Wenzel is awesome, I am very grateful I was referred to her.
I can never say enough good for how wonderful Dr. Wenzel and her entire staff are. The empathy she shows for my condition is so important to me. I had a longer than usual wait, but that was because she was spending time with a patient who was in need. I love Dr. Wenzel, Catherine, their nurses and their receptionists. I look forward to my appointments.
this is an excellent, smart and knowledgeable provider.
Dr. Wenzel listened to me and really showed her concern. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family!
I couldn't ask for a better doctor for my asthmatic history than Dr. Sally Wenzel.
I consider Dr. Sally my primary physician. She is the most caring doctor that I have had in my life time. She is always available when I need her care for my asthma. I also want to praise Cathy Vitari, Dr. Wenzel's nurse. Between the two of them I couldn't have better care.
Dr. Wenzel is always caring and informative as well as honest about my condition and when answering my questions. Her nurse Cathy always returns my calls in a timely manner; if it's to answer a question or have a prescription filled.
Dr Wensel is the best doctor ever.. Never let her go.. Also, Dr Wensel's nurse Kathy is so helpful and kind. Thank God I can get in touch with her to get information from or to get in touch with the Doctor for me.. Both are awesome!!!
Dr. Sally Wenzel is world class and I am fortunate to have her as my doctor.
Dr. Wenzel & her staff arethe BEST! she is the best I physician I have ever had.
Sally E. Wenzel is the absolute best lung doctor around!! I only wish I lived in Pittsburgh to see her on a regular basis and not in Chicago (9-11 hours away). would never hesitate on recommending her to others that are having a very difficult time with finding a competent and compassionate doctor as Sally E. Wenzel!!
Dr. Wencil is outstanding. I feel very fortunate to be under her care. I cannot say how much I appreciate here as my doctor.

I like Dr. Wendzel very much.
Dr. Wenzel has been my asthma doctor for quite a few years and sometimes I have to admit I use her as my PCP. Her advice and counseling are right on and I trust her with the decisions concerning my health.
The staff, nurses and doctors have been top shelf ever since I started going to UPMC for my asthma problems.
We were VERY impressed with Dr. Wenzel and her entire team. Thoughtful and exceedingly thorough in her (their) attention to detail and data. We have more confidence in her than anyone else that I have seen in connection to my asthma.
Sally is most informative and caring. I did suggest to a friend of mine to seek her help and to schedule an apt. Most informative and caring.
I am always pleased with Dr Wenzel, she is very professional, caring, and a good listener. I have been seeing her for a few years now, and she has helped me out so much since I have been seeing her as my Pulmonary Doctor. I feel so much better. She and her staff are great, especially Cathy, she is the best, and I missed her at my appointment. I am so happy that she is my doctor and would recommend anyone to her.
This is the best place to be for any care related to your lungs and breathing. I absolutely love the staff, nurses and doctors. I can't imagine going anywhere else and getting the same level of care.
Dr. Wenzel was able to treat my asthma so I no longer have the attacks.
The doctors were very concerned and understanding.
Each of my experiences have been comfortable and if I made a comment or asked a question, always have received an answer with interest and clarity.
Dr. Wenzel has become a very dear friend! she cares deeply about me as a patient and a person!
My experience with my Care Provider (Dr. Wenzel) was excellent as always!

I thank GOD that I have Dr. Sally and her staff taking care of my health needs. Never a complaint from me.
