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!

Dr. Wirtschafter put in tubes for my daughter because she has had reoccurring ear infections and I could not take it anymore. So we finally made the decision to put the tubes in. He is a very nice MD and he makes you feel very comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone.
