Patient Comments (3)
Indianapolis, IN |
Although you have a longer wait time, it is well worth it. He has a great bedside manner, a wealth of knowledge. He takes the time to listen.
I was a new patient and at my first appointment, I was required to wait 3 1/2 hours before seeing the doctor. I did not receive any communication from the staff about the expected wait time. Dr. Wurtz finally came in to the exam room and stated he would consult w/ other physicians about my medical concern & call me on a specific day. That specific day has come and past with no phone call. It's been a week since I visited the office without any calls and no answers regarding my concern.
