We came to know her via the discovery and onset of my wife's Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2010. She resolved my wife's fear and worry through her compassionate care, providing accurate information on her treatment progress and explaining what she would experience. Dr. Wierman constantly monitored the treatment protocol and brought her through to full remission.
As a happenstance, my daughter who is a Medical Oncology Detailer working for a major pharmaceutical firm knew Dr. Wierman years earlier and knew of her outstanding reputation among the doctors here in Las Vegas. Dr. Wierman is the “Go To” doctor for up-to-date advances in medical oncology, developing genetic focused knowledge and we found her encyclopaedic in her knowledge of cancer and ability to explain what to expect and what happens throughout a course of treatment for cancer. Her reputation among colleagues is exceptional and they frequently refer their complex patients to her. Colleague referrals is a major way in discovering who are the best doctors. My wife is now 4 years in full remission from NHL and will shout from the roof tops how competent Dr. Wierman was and how compassionate was her experience. We met patients in treatment who were having a worse time than we and they often told us how grateful they were for how supportive they found her to be during their very difficult times.
Additionally, Dr. Wierman monitored and guided her through avoiding a potential deadly bout with colon cancer and she is now free of colon cancer. Colon cancer is an independent disease from NHL. I am also her patient for a blood disorder, an acute case of anemia. She has been treating me for several years and I'm satisfied with the treatment protocol, progress and my current status.
I've read through the critiques posted on-line and find their experiences to be alien from mine. One uninformed irate comment was about candy and how bad it was being available and how this is a cancer taboo substance. I've found candy at other cancer centers and in treatment rooms and nowhere in the literature on cancer is candy prohibited. Excess sugar, excess everything is not recommend as common sense and diabetics may be warned to limit or eliminate candy but the major cancer organizations such as: National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society and World Health Organization do not do so, to my knowledge. So I consider those comments to be a result of some personal snit, exaggerated and unreliable and not to be generalized. Visit delays happen because of unexpected crises requiring doctors to be at the hospital and having to catch up and also from inefficient scheduling. This happens occasionally and in my many visits I did have a one time wait for 40 minutes and found it annoying. But I am OK with that knowing that ample time is being spend with patients scheduled before me. I see another doctor who by reputation is always very delayed and all of his patients expect it and choose him because despite pressure to see more patients he is diligent in assuring that all patients get whatever time is necessary.
My personal view is that if you do not want to die from curable cancers you should consider Dr. Wierman as your primary cancer oncologist. You'll find her warm, engaging and informed, willing to go the extra steps often needed by cancer patients. Ask around, ask any cancer doctor and they will tell you she is one of their best.
As to office staff, they are pleasant, able and efficient. Scheduling is first rate. Dr. Wierman's nurse is competent, follows up and is an independent source of accurate information. No request is too much and she will take the time to make sure everything goes as intended.
I truly believe that Dr. Weirman saved my husband's life. He fell gravely ill January of 2014. The doctor we went to see dismissed his symptoms. At my insistence, he ordered a few blood tests, and informed us that he was sick, but he didn't know what was wrong. Dr. Weirman saw him and immediately had him admitted to the Hospital, where he remained for 8 days. From the first time she saw my husband we knew we had made the right choice. Her positive demeanor, the time she dedicated to listen to our concerns and explain everything concerning his illness. My husband is still sick, but his illness is under control. Dr. Weirman is closely checking his progress. We are indebted to her. She saved Will's life.
