This doctor is great! She took her time and really talked about my needs. I went to 7 other doctors and Dr. W was the only one that would help me with my reoccurring tonsillitis. I am so so thankful for her! Highly recommend! Cant say enough good things about her! :)

Dr. Wirtshafter took care of my son many years ago. Recently, I was having pain and ear fullness and decided to visit her myself. I was highly satisfied with both the staff and the doctor. Dr. Wirtshafter took the time to listen and explain. I would highly recommend her to others.
