I find Dr. Joan Gewirtz to be the most caring, comprehensive, intelligent and interested physician I have ever seen. She always goes the extra mile to solve a problem and make her patients feel comfortable and informed.
in Stamford, CT |
I was suffering of red, itchy, and watery eyes. When I visited Dr. Gewirtz she pointed out that most likely I was staring to monitors for long periods of time, causing a small blockage in my lacrimal punctum. Dr. Gewirtz quickly cleared the blockage, put some small tubs where the blockage was, and gave me a few tips to prevent this issue from occurring again. What else could I ask for? Same day appointment, knowledgeable, and caring. Best medical experience in the US so far.
