I went to Dr. Wirth for several years. I asked her about a round raised bump on my chin two years ago and she told me it was a mole and not to worry. This year I changed dermatologists because my husband had also gone to Dr. Wirth and she had missed diagnosing an early state melanoma on him. My new dermatologist wanted to have a better look at this bump which was a little bigger at this point, biopsied it and turned out it was a basal cell carcinoma. Upset that Wirth didn't catch it earlier.

I saw Dr. Wirth once, for a first-time full body exam. I hadn't seen a dermatologist in a few years and had 4-5 quick questions. I was 15 minutes early for the appointment and heard her staff say the patient before me cancelled. Dr. Wirth has no bedside manner, acted like she didn't want to get near me (I wasn't sick) and actually told me if I had more questions, to make another appointment. I would never go back and am seeing another derm. Dr. Wirth was knowledgeable but also horrible.

I have been going to Dr Wirth for several years now, after becoming dissatisfied with my previous dermatologist. Her treatment cleared up recurring pre-cancerous cysts on my nose that had troubled me for years. I have found that she listens well, responds to questions and gives options - all of which I appreciate. Also I think that the fact that she does an annual full body exam probably saved the life of a friend of mine who was not aware that she had a melanoma on her back.

Dr Wirth destroyed my face. She gave me a cortisone shot which left me with devastating lipo atrophy on my face. It's still visible 3 + years later. When the emergency happened they were not helpful. They referred me to their associate for a $1200 cosmetic filler. It's been the worst medical experience of my life.
