About Dr. Wesner

Dr. Bob wanted to be a psychiatrist since he was 5 years old.  He recalls seeing a sign in a medical office building and asking his mother what a “psychiatrist” was.  She replied that it was a doctor who helped people when they were feeling sad.  In that moment, and ever since, he has pursued it as his career and calling.
