My first visit with Dr. Wirtschafter was wonderful. Not only does he have the best bedside manner but he alleviated my problem within a matter of 24hrs. He takes his time and truly listens to your concerns. I'm so happy to have found him. My husband is also a patient of Dr. Wirtschafter and has referred a number of friends who have become patients. Like my husband and I, all have been very pleased. The staff at the ENT Department are always pleasant and helpful.

Dr.wirtschafter did surgery on my daughter (tubes). Could not have asked for a better Dr. He took his time in helping me understand the surgery and he was very gentle with my baby. If you ever need someone to see for any ENT issues I would highly recommend Dr.Wirtschafter

"Check" - absolutely amazing Doctor and one of the Best on my list - very knowledgeable and professional! From the Start to Finish! I made my first appointment very easy, received two reminders by text about the appointment, no waiting time. His staff is very efficient and pleasant. I was very pleasantly surprise to leave his office in 30 min, I have been diagnosed at my first visit and I left his office with a game plan (as someone said previously). No question - highly recommended!
